Hey Alex,

 

Back on page two, in the last post of that page, you posted a link to a card about Fusilli and Vermicelli that was very amusing, and also a link from the New Yorker from 20 years ago that you said reminded you of the card which depicts a cartoon anthropomorphized rigatoni picking up the phone with the caption, "Fusilli, you crazy bastard! How are you?"

 

I get that one, and the other two food-related cartoons under the main one on the New Yorker page. http://www.condenast..._i10276284_.htm

 

My question is: what does the third cartoon with the guillotine and the pigeons, with a couple of soldier-looking guys staring at this scene with the caption "The bagels, they just keep getting bigger, no?" mean. I don't get this one, and it's still bugging me.

 

I ran it by my husband, and he didn't get it either. Do you, or anyone else, know?


I want to move to another planet, with pure spring water.

 

This planet would have a global climate like Hawaii, California, Florida.

 

We'd raise perfect and abundant flora and fauna!

 

Want to come with?

TftC, see here (bagel guillotine) and here (NYT article about bagels).

Thanks tinyragebaking,

 

It's one of my pet peeves to see expensive and perfectly prepared ingredients nice and hot, ready to be eaten and enjoyed, divided into ridiculously tiny portions, spread out, cooled off, and meticulously (and time-consuminly, while the lovely comestibles cool even more) overly garnished for no known reason.

 

I can see it as art. I just fail to see it as cuisine fit for consumption.

 

 

I found the above amusing, although, I'm a firm believer in free-range chicken.

I had forgotten all about this Calvin and Hobbes, which I liked just as much the first time around.

This video is kind of long, but I found it pretty entertaining.

Jim Gaffigan's standup is hilarious and most of it is about food. He recently came out with a book called "Food: A Love Story" that's quite funny. I listened to the audiobook on a recent car trip and it got a lot of laughs.

Thanks Norm,

 

This guy is great!

 

I watched another one where he rags on Starbucks (easy prey, but he didn't even mention overpricing).

 

Then he gets into being asked for your zip code at department stores, and his stuff is hilarious. I always respond with "90210" passive/aggressively when I know I'll not get anything out it. I expected to be challenged the first time, but they always enter the stuff into their overlords' computer system dutifully, and the line moves on.

 

This is the link for anyone who cares to watch:

This is the first thing we ever saw from John Pinette (warning: it may be offensive to some folks).  About eating at a Chinese buffet.  And sadly he died in 2014.

Darienne,

 

 

 I didn't know that, thanks. He was only 50, but when one neglects ones health, most of us will have to pay the price early.

 

Very funny guy though, and he has bit of a history on IMDB's filmography, for those who are interested, but he tended to be in movies I would never waste any time on.

 

He's quite entertaining in his shorts on YouTube, though.
