I just re-discovered an awesome… performer? Internet personality? Cook? I’m not sure what to call him, exactly. He defies explanation. He is Charles Phoenix, and on his website he describes himself as a showman, author, humorist, and Ambassador of Americana, which seems as good a description as any.

Isn’t that the best thing you’ve seen in years? I want to a Christmas party this year, just so that I can make Frosty the Cheeseball Man. If you have an hour to kill, I highly recommend looking through his other cooking videos. They’re pretty much the best.
Let’s take a minute to share patterns that Mr. Phoenix would heartily approve of. Fun, kitschy, and a little bit weird.
When I throw a party, I always insist on a strict dress code, even for my dish soap bottles.
