Alice Laussade: devoted mother, gourmand, health fanatic and one funny bastard, on getting word that she won a James Beard award
Alice Laussade is now officially the funniest freakin' food journalist in America. The James Beard Foundation just said so tonight at its 2013 food journalism awards.

We knew this already, of course, still it's nice to hear from other people. Or as Alice put it on Twitter: "Everyone please take 8 shots for me. This is so awesome."

She would drink them herself, but as you can see in the photo, Alice is eight months pregnant, which is why she didn't fly to New York to collect the award herself. (Not that anyone is suggesting that Alice's water breaking on an airliner would in any way resemble an acid-eating-through-the-spaceship scene from Alien. But still.)

She won for "The Cheap Bastard's Ultimate Guide to Eating like a Total Cheap Bastard in Dallas." You should definitely check it out and have a shot every time you run across a swear word. Really, do it for Alice.

Oh my holy fuck, do I ever fucking enjoy AL and her profanity. That alleged schtick is now fully endorsed by the James Beard Foundation. Suck it, haters! Swear Pride 2013 WOOO! That parade should totally happen. The galactically satisfying pleasure i get from laughing out loud while reading her column is the main reason i still pick up the DO. Were Alice Laussade single and unattached, I might seriously have to reconsider my orientation. I'm not saying I could complete the act... her lady junk is blown all to hell, after all.

You too can be an award winning food journalist!  Here's how: frequent concatenation of just about any word with "hole" and repeatedly combining sweet, nice words (angel, unicorn, baby, etc.) with vile nasty ones (poop, vomit, taint, etc.)...extra credit for ven diagrams!
