Well, that hit my sweet spot like nothing else -- and I'm very glad I'm alone in the office right now. I want to explain why I think it's so fucking funny in many well thought out paragraphs -- but I think this is very much an "either/or" thing.

The controversial sequel has him using an electric griddle.

FYI: It's possible to actually win if you actually do guess what is being grilled in chavenet's link. But nothing that spectacular happens.

Neil Cicierega's Windows 95 Tips Tumblr on the blue yesterday. He's pretty amazing, I think he is arguably the inspiration for a lot of Internet culture and trends ranging from "YTP" to misheard lyrics videos since his ancient Hyakugojuuichi flash video over a decade ago.

This is a great antidote to the earworm thread.

Only if you think replacing one with the another is a viable antidote -- though, as someone who just caught myself humming along, I sorta see it like me stepping in front of a bus to cure my hangnail.

Pfardentrott, wait. The Hyakugojuuichi guy is the same guy who made the Windows 95 tips tumblr?! That's great.

It reminds me of how I felt when I found out one of the Brothers Chaps (of Homestar Runner fame) wrote and directed several episodes of the Aquabats show.

Anyone criticizing Cicierega's recent output needs to ask themselves "What would I do for an encore after 'The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny'?"

Yes, it deserves its own.

The video is hilarious for reasons I can't describe. The actual game, not so much.

There's actually a bug that makes it pretty easy to see kinda what happens. If you type in the name of the thing and hit the spacebar quickly right after he lifts the lid, it seems to count this as a win, and you hear the cheer of the crowd instead of the wrong-buzzer. And that's pretty much it. I didn't stick around long enough to actually win, but something tells me that cheering crowd is all you get either way.

This had me laughing so hard I teared up. I'm not sure why it's so funny, but it really is.

For me, this is more Kafka than Dada.

Most likely you’ll go your way, And I’ll Go Dine, but Mr. Zimmerman typically grills Knock Knock Knockwurst On Heaven’s Door.

Or sometimes very rare dishes under a low charcoal fire: It’s Alright, Ma (It’s Only Bleeding).
But this, It Ain't Meat, babe. It ain't meat you're looking for babe, and so you could get the subterranean grillsick blues.
We were going to grill at Dylan's house, but it looked as though A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall (Yes, here comes the story of the Hurricane)
So we went inside and made some Don’t Think Twice Baked Potatoes (It’s All Right).


On the other hand Dwayne Johnson's culinary endeavors are more blatantly fragrant and so it's easier to smell his cuisine, which I believe it comprised mostly of thoroughly tenderized buttocks and garnished with jactitation.
