The South Beach Wine & Food Festival came and went, and for those of us who eat Ramen noodles while huddled over our laptops, it's usually not a major event. Yet because Paula Deen was in town (every time she's in Miami, something magical happens), the Internet masses have a shiny, new meme: Paula Deen riding things!
Deen was hosting some sort of cooking demo last Sunday while apparently partaking in a generous glass of red wine. When minor food celeb Robert Irvine showed up, she though it would be a good idea to lick cream off of his abs and then ride him like a horse.
Of course, photos were taken, and thanks to the power of Photoshop, it became a meme chronicled on the Paula Deen Riding Things Tumblr.
God bless the Internet. God bless Ms. Paula Deen.
