Stunned Silence

I promised myself that I wasn't going to post today, but then I came across something that I had to blog about. I don't even know how to preface this.

Watch this video:

I'm sorry, WHAT? Is this a joke? This is a parody, right? Semi-homemade cooking? It must be a joke. It's a pretty good one too! I mean come on! Take a look at this piece of fine comedy:

Haha, oh Sandra Lee, you're a funny lady. You're doing that on purpose. A cake for Kwanzaa. With pumpkin seeds and huge ugly candles. Oh ho ho, too funny. What? You mean there is MORE? WOW!!!!

Who are the geniuses behind this comedy? Google google.






Look at this.


Hold on.

You mean to tell me that this is real? These aren't just genius sketches? She has a show? And all she does is ICE STORE BOUGHT CAKES? You mean to tell me that the average person needs a SHOW to tell them these things? Has our culture turned so much to convenience that we need step by step instructions on how to spread one thing onto another thing? Can we really not accomplish this task independently? Whoa whoa, and the ICE CREAM POTATO??!!! That's real too? You made a vegetable out of ice cream? No. No one will eat that. It's weird. I don't care if it tastes delicious, it looks like it should taste like a different kind of delicious. Have you ever tried eating straight up cocoa powder? That crap is nasty. That's not  how you treat ice cream! That. Uh. I see there are many more videos. There has to be, because it's on the FOOD NETWORK. WHAT? I'm just...I don't even know what to do.

If I keep thinking about this I'm going to be huddled in a corner humming God Bless America soon. And I'm Canadian. There is only one thing that can save this post.

The Bean.

This picture just screams: "Hiiiii Aunt Tootie!"
