This blog is dedicated to spreading the truth about Jack Scalfani, a child abuser and racist who has run up modest celebrity on the internet through his “Cooking with Jack” youtube channel. For a long but by no means exhaustive list of what Jack has done, please see this post.

Ah, Jack. Always a follower, always the proverbial tabula rasa onto which can be projected even the most flighty of other people’s interests. But really, can you blame him? Always so out of place wherever he goes, a sadsack and a waste of flesh as normal human beings go about having lives? Not just moving from food bowl to food bowl, peddling sauce whilst ankle-deep in your own broken dreams of showbiz?
Newcomer Dave seems just a little too normal and interesting to be friends with Jack. Although he already appears to have separated Jack from his money he’s not above throwing the lonely old cur a bone. For Jack’s part, given Dave’s fashionable looks, familiarity with contemporary food trends and easygoing manner I can’t help but feel Jack has him as the proverbial “mark” for a conversion to evangelical Christianity. Considering he’s been spurred recently to attempt to convert (no doubt to line the greedy pockets of those behind the Cornerstone church in Nashville) it wouldn’t surprise me. Hell, Jack blew this man off because he decided he was going to take a vacation from doing nothing with his life and Dave was still genial and easygoing. He probably knows nothing about Jack.
Kind reader, let’s pretend for a second that Jack and his bevy of swollen Christians from California found this place on Jack on the Go. I think it’s a fun exercise in context. “Nine dollars for sliders?!” moans Jack to the camera, rolling his eyes. “Seven dollars for tater tots?!? I could make that at home! They sell that at WalMart for fifty cents a bag!”. The burger looked lovely but it was certainly well done, which Jack has railed long and hard against in the past. But Jack, under-dressed for an afternoon on the sofa watching cartoons much less a a bar, is so desperate to be seen as cool and hip and young that he praises and tries his best to be interested in liquor and burgers. Shockingly he doesn’t feign an interest in live music but we all know he’s a liar about that.
More than anything, from this I feel pity for Jack. He and his life are pitiable, and he knows it, and all he wants is to feel like he’s one of the cool kids. Sorry, Jack. People who beat children deserve no such solace in this life.
