published a piece about hometown barbecue. In the piece, they state that Miami smokes Dallas in barbecue. And basketball.
After a passing out from white-hot rage, writer Alice Laussade woke and wrote up a response. Among other things, Alice called for the Miami New Times, our sister paper, to take a big ol' smooch of our asses.
No word if Miami's puckered up, but Alice's campaign to punch Miami New Times in the nards led to Twitter.
