14 Mar 06Intel-Based Macs Make Their Own Gravy.

After Apple’s announcement that the MacBook Pro would ship with faster than expected processors, few Mac users expected that Intel-based Macs would hold other surprises.

But Mac user Alton Brown of the Food Network’s Good Eats has discovered that – in a treat that all Mac users will enjoy – all Intel-based Macs make their own gravy.

Brown first made this discovery last week after receiving delivery of a brand new 1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo Mac mini.

“Previous Mac I’ve owned have all made juices of various kinds,” Brown said. “I had a lime iBook, for example, that made lime aid. It was delicious. Particularly in the summer. Very refreshing.

“Anyway, I had a pan going and I had the Mac mini sitting there and… I dunno. I was just curious.”

“I was also completely soused on cooking sherry. Whew! Man, was I drunk.”

Brown discovered that, when mixed with cream and flour, the dripping from a heated 1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo Mac mini will create a rich gravy suitable for any festive occasion. Brown has also subsequently tested a MacBook Pro and an iMac.

Asked what the Macs he’s tested taste like, Brown indicated that the Mac mini gravy tastes like beef gravy, while both the MacBook Pro and iMac taste like chicken gravy.

“I don’t know why that is,” Brown said quizzically, taking another sip from the pan his mini was sitting in. “Maybe it’s the GMA graphics card…”

Apple declined to comment, but in what may be an unrelated incident, the entire Cupertino campus smelled like bacon today.

    Regular or Canadian Bacon?

    Brown or White gravy?

  4. mk2000 says:

    You know, I followed the directions but it just tasted like burnt plastic. I dunno.

  5. comacnut says:

    I think you should have added some more RAM, that would give it a smoother less burnt taste.

  6. Zeb says:

    What is even more cuisine-tastic is that iPods are microwavable and result in a flaky crust covering a gooey center…kinda hot-pocketesque. I did crack a filling on what I believe was the hard drive though.


  7. He stops, takes a taste, and says:

    As a substitute for RAM, I find that leaving a good tasting CD in the slot, say “Babette’s Feast”, works wonders.

    Sick minded cannibals. How could you each a Macintosh? They are like family.


  9. Nxxx says:

    Yea but most of us have Power PCs. When is the cookbook for those coming out Moltz?

    OH MY GAWD!!!! OH MY GAWD!!!!
    I knew all those emails to steve@apple.com were being read! I knew it all along! They listen!!!!

  12. Jebus says:

    My eMac only makes something that’s almost, but not entirely, unlike tea…

  13. Ace Deuce says:

    I was impressed by the fellow who ate a Volkswagen, mainly because it didn’t make its own gravy. He had to wash it down with biodiesel.

  14. Fat Tony says:

    In the spirit of The Comic Bookstore Guy….Worst Episode Ever!

  15. Slowpoke says:

    Bacon AND gravy? that’s just… the most amazing recipie EVER!

  16. Mike says:

    This is the BEST Episode Ever. I love watching AB. It had me laughing the whole time. He didn’t eat his Mac. He merely allowed it to simmer and enjoyed the sweet gravy-like juices. What would a D*ll, Gate%ay, or other Windoze machine taste like? Kool-Ade with no sugar?

  17. Huh? says:

    Neither my pants, nor myself have any constructive comments to make. Even though I have six brand new Mac Minis sitting next to my desk.
    I am a bit hungry though, and I can’t for the life of me, figure out why….


  18. He who Winks at Midnight says:

    Aid, should be, Ade.

  19. This is no lie. miniMacs make gravy so think and chunky you’ll be tempted to eat it with a fork, but use a spoon, you’ll want to get every drop!

    Not surprisingly, a roasted Dell XPS 200’s “gravy” tastes like lark’s vomit.

  20. LimeyBloke, in an English accent says:

    The gravy results from the ‘cooking down’ of the internal DDR 4000 SPAM.

  21. Psyko says:

    PowerPCs shall rule the world. And I shall lead the conquest!


  22. Streetrabbit says:

    Tim Ma wasn’t first yesterday. What’s goin’ on?

    …Oh and I wasn’t 12th either. I wan’t my eleven back.

  23. Lewis says:

    Now that’s what I call Good Eats!

    Actually, I like vintage 1988 SE/30. There’s nothing like an aged 68030, makes excellent lemonade.

    My lime iMac exhibits the same symptoms as his iBook, and the blueberry iMac tastes like cobbler.

    The PowerMac G5, however, tastes like chicken.

    No Macs were harmed in the making of this comment.
