Since news broke of Food Networkperson/pharmashill/buttershill Paula Deen's allegedly racist deposition testimony, Twitter users have been adding the hashtag #PaulasBestDishes to tweets lampooning Deen.

People are using puns, portmanteau, and alliteration to create alternative, racially charged dish titles to attribute to Deen. (Think along the lines of "Fresh picked cotton candy" and "Honey Bunches of Ropes.") A friend of Eater said, "It's a high-tech lynching -- fusillade of insults." Now viral, the hashtag is tied to countless tweets aimed at Deen.
