Holy Macaroni! Swear to God, if you had told me five years ago that I would be in a band whose album would be on any list with Ryan Adams, Calexico, Iron & Wine, Richmond Fontaine and the Old 97's, I woulda looked around for a pail of water to extinguish your pants because they would be on fire.
Because I would assume you would be lying...that's what I was trying to get at.
Ye gads...here are a new set of Regrettable Food Cards,
this time: all Finnish recipes (and clumsy translations).
Paste loaf with artichoke bottoms
"These very attractive looking appetizers can be accomplished with very
little work, and for even grand parties. You accomplish this by different
ways of squeezing spiced chicken or meat paste to vegetable bottoms. The
paste you can do yourself at home, or you can buy it from a store - there
is a very good selection in local stores. Also to the coffee table you
will get nice and a little bit more special things to offer when you go
squeezing these pastes on cookies/crackers or small slices of bread."
Speaking of funny, here is a pretty complete Mitch Hedberg Video Gallery which is hilarious. If you're only gonna check out one, this one is really funny.
I opened up a container of yogurt, and under the lid it said "Please Try Again." Apparently I was in a contest I was unaware of. But I thought I might have opened the yogurt wrong... or maybe Yoplait was trying to inspire me. "C'mon, Mitchell, don't give up. Please try again. A message of inspiration from your friends at Yoplait. Fruit on the bottom, hope on top."
D'oh isn't the only word that The Simpsons have brought into the English language. What about Scotchtoberfest? Unblowuppable? Carhole? Chocotastic? And all of these...

Oohh, you just wait America...
Terrifying street interviews with Americans on which country we should bomb next...France, Cuba, Korea, Brazil, Italy...then they hold up a map with the names of the countries mislabeled (the continent of Australia is mis-labeled "Iran" etc.) and ask people to put little markers on the countries in the order which they should be bombed.
"Informed" Americans + fake world map with Australia labelled as North Korea = comedy gold
