Dear Food Network
Dear Food Network,
Thank you for teaching my kids how to cook fancy schmancy.

The vast culinary knowledge they have acquired lounging in front of the TV and laptop (love your website) has raised the chow bar to quite a sophisticated level.

Unfortunately, they leave 99% of the actual cooking to moi.

 

Dear Food Network

Cook Like A Star!

 

I can no longer pawn turkey hot dogs, tuna sandwiches, or cans of noodle soup off as a meal. […]

“Gee, Officer. Was there a STOP sign back there? I didn’t see a STOP sign. Please don’t shoot – just kidding.”

SO… WHY DIDN’T I SEE THAT STOP SIGN?

Excuses, Excuses!

Are You Old? 12 SIGNS “Death” is Near!

4 Apr

“… in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” – Benjamin Franklin 1789

Cheers!

Cheers!


12 SIGNS “DEATH” IS NEAR

1. Loss of appetite. Your insane food cravings for salt and sweets no longer compel you to stick up a gas station or shoplift Snickers bars at a 7-11.  “The Hunger Games” is merely a kids’ flick you wouldn’t watch for all the cat food money in the free world.

2. Gravity has won. You have more wrinkles on your neck and chin than the average pug. […]

Does Everything Have To Be A Competition?

28 Mar

 

Why does everything have to be a competition?

BarbBestHumor

  • No kidding! We now have competitive bubble wrap popping.

Yes, there’s video below from WSJ.

  • Of course, we have eating competitions. No longer limited to hot dogs and cherry pies at the summer fair. Competitive eating has gone pro. It is a collegiate sport. Organized gluttony as an entertainment event.

Technology excites me as much as a Kate Spade flash sale at Bloomingdale’s. I love the newest electronic gadget.

I dig Cars! Drones! 3D Printers! You know – mechanical stuff that’s fun to manipulate (pun alert).

DRIVERLESS CARS

This is the weekly meeting of HAHumorholics Anonymous.

Hmm, I see many horrified new faces here tonight.

No fear. We have enough caffeine and sugar on the back table to put you in a coma – and most likely fuel some new addictions. Ha, Ha.

OOPS! I’m Not Breathing.

Why Not? You May Ask…

My damn bra is too tight

No Post-It note that says “breathe!”

Do you find much of the news to be absurd?

We live in a crazy world. We might as well laugh at the absurdity of it all.

Gratitude is where it’s at, dude.

Barb Best Humor Blog Gratitude

 

If guilted sufficiently, even die-hard cranks and curmudgeons can occasionally muster enough oomph to express a grunt or two of gratitude.

What are you grateful for?

I’m grateful for Google

Everything I know, knew, never knew, and can’t remember – I learned on Google. […]
