Combo Plate: Waffles gone weird, best beers in America, honey laundering and more

July 6, 2010 | 10:44 am

-- This is the question I had after watching this "Waffles Gone Weird" video: Who cleans up those waffle makers?

-- Japanese eating champion Takeru Kobayashi, arrested at a Fourth of July hot-dog-eating contest, was released Monday after a night in jail, looking a little weary and saying he was ... hungry.

-- Global beer brewers hope to tap a new market: Africa

-- Speaking of suds, we're told these are the five best beers in America, all from "Brewvana," a.k.a. Oregon.

-- You've heard of money laundering? This is a story about honey laundering.

-- We're ending on a serious note: California is the only state in the U.S. that does not allow its 1.2 million recipients of federal Supplemental Security Income to apply for food stamps. That means that some people -- like 70-year-old Donjean Gardener of Echo Park -- don't always know where their next meal is coming from.
