The Quotable Alton Brown

ab-tsa-175.jpgTV guy Alton Brown, a licensed pilot, on whether icing is a gel, and if it should be allowed on airplanes: "Icing is not a gel. By definition, icing is not a gel. Because a gel—we get that word from gelatin, which implies coagulated proteins, so it is not. Technically frosting is a condensed syrup, so I would argue with TSA that they were out of their freaking mind." [CNTraveler]
