|The atomic chef's mushroom surprise|
The food network is a very popular cable show, and while us amateurs may try to prepare some of the more exotic recipes one lunatic was using his kitchen to try and split the atom*. I don't know what channel he got the recipe from, but the ingredients are radium, americium, and uranium. These components aren't exactly what you'd expect to find in an average spice rack. As to the kind of pot he was cooking them in, I hope it was double walled with a liquid cooling chamber surrounded by at least three feet of concrete. We all know that splitting atoms can lead to a nuclear reaction, which is even worse than having a pressure cooker explode. Fortunately the authorities discovered what the atomic chef was trying to do and had him arrested. He was released on his own recognizance with 10 hours community service volunteering in the local soup kitchen. Hopefully he will only be allowed to split peas.
