Laugh yourself sick

This isn't new or anything, but I've never seen it mentioned here. For my money, the funniest site on this here Intarweb is James Lileks' Institute of Official Cheer, especially the Gallery of Regrettable Food. I guarantee you will not find such a concentrated collection of pop-culture sarcasm anywhere else. You have to be in the right mood, I suppose, but when I first read this stuff I literally laughed until my stomach hurt. Warning: lots of big words, so cavemen shouldn't bother dropping by.

Ernest, never has ROTFLMAO been more appropriately applied.

Your subject line for this is quite apt. I couldn't get past the Knudsen's 1959 edition. I was laughing so hard I had to take a break.

Something that got me was how most of the pictures had a fork and spoon and salt and pepper shakers just sort of sneaking into the picture to indicate this stuff really is food. "Honest. We wouldn't lie. See the table ornaments."

Thanks, this is good stuff.

I actually gave myself a headache I was laughing so hard. The animated glowing gelatin was too much, but the molded jello klingon head was over the top...
