About Us



  1. Any of several plants of the genus Rheum, especially R. rhabarbarum, having long green or reddish acidic leafstalks that are edible when sweetened and cooked. Also called pie plant.
  2. The dried, bitter-tasting rhizome and roots of Rheum palmatum or R. officinale of eastern Asia, used as a laxative.
  3. Informal. A quarrel, fight, or heated discussion.
  4. A journal of brilliantly written witty op-eds.


While we hope to provide content that will interest, stimulate, and entertain, we guarantee none of this. We expect this blog to be, like rhubarb itself, pleasing to some, offensive to others. Taste accordingly.
