Sometimes I visit www.despair.com for a laugh. This whole site is consistently cynical and pessimistic about business culture. Still, taken “tongue in cheek”, some of the web pages, and especially the “motivational” posters are a laugh. So, I often use this cynical site to cheer myself up!

The World’s Best Green Chili Cheeseburger

The world’s best green chili cheeseburger can only be had in Carrizozo, NM. Here is a photo of the bar/restaurant. If you are ever in Carrizozo, just look for this place along the main north-south street. While it looks a little rough, it is a great family restaurant…and, has the world’s best green chili cheeseburger—I promise!
