PROGRAM NOTE

Paula Deen is making her infamous "The Lady's Brunch Burger" (glazed doughnuts, hamburger, fried egg, bacon, and cheese) when she accidentally chokes on a doughnut and dies. In the afterlife, Paula Deen is denied entrance to heaven because of her sinful culinary ways. She pleads to the angels guarding heaven's door to let her in, tempting them to taste butter, causing them to lose their angel wings.
