At least the commenter liked the result. I'm always equally amused and irritated when a commenter changes *everything* in a recipe, then gives it one star 'cause it didn't turn out properly.

Something similar happened to me once at Costco.  I was waiting at the check out line and the woman behind me pointed to the case of wine in my cart and said, "Is that wine good"?  Feeling particularly cranky at the moment, I said, "No, I take it home and pour it down the drain".  I mean DUH!

I shouldn't have said that but I did..

I went to Walmart to get jumbo eggs and I was able to get the only 2 packs of unbroken jumbos. I went to check out and three 20 yr olds were in front of me arguing over who was gonna put their groceries on whose Access card, I was thinking, "These mofos better not come to blows right here and break my Jumbo eggs, ill beat em up with my purse."

Luckily they didnt fight.

Do not F*** with my Jumbo eggs!

Misplaced Modifier strikes again! From the website of Fiamma Wood Fired Pizza in Westfield, NJ (bonus: amusing misspelling):

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

I laughed pretty hard last year when I came across a food blogger who breathlessly described the pink Himalayan salt as "the purest you can buy," and then in the very next sentence went on to extoll the healthful qualities of its many trace minerals - otherwise known as impurities. Honestly, some of those people...

 

...and yeah, I do occasionally come across references to "freshly-ground" salt in recipes from food bloggers. 'Cause those million year-old crystals just aren't the same when you crush them up ahead of time.

From the late, great Dave Allen.

He was my favorite Comedian. People were scandalized that I would let my grandson watch him beginning when he was only 5. He loved Dave Allen so much that I just couldn't help it. to this day, He remembers all the skits and we laugh at them together all over again.
