If you aren't watching Hannibal on Broad City, you are missing out. Him and the entire cast are phenomenal.

He's everywhere now, and I couldn't be more pleased.

100% agree, this seems self-exploitative.

"You look... crazy...?"

Seriously, Hannibal Buress is the funniest thing on that very, very funny show.

Which you could also say about Chozen, Eric Andre, Kroll Show, etc etc etc. He's literally the funniest.

The Rite Aid bag tank top would be kind of great in actual fabric.

I have developed a religion centered on HB.

Thanks for the magazine link.

(What is it with Natasha and Rite Aid? This won't be Hot Pockets, NL , don't hang your dreams on Rite Aid.)

Hannibalism?

That could lead to some fandom mixed signals.

I actually kinda of love that shopping bag top.

As alluded to in one of the links, this is actually FoD's old humor magazine. It started around a year ago and stopped late last year. Its content is all archived on this website. I have no idea why this piece is dated March 2014, as it was first published a year ago.

Sounds like there are plans to start creating new content again, which is great because this publication was hilarious.

That shopping bag top is available in cloth too - I knew I'd seen it before... http://6dollarshirts.com/t-shirts/Thank-You-Bag-p-11213.html ... and at least it's not as sweaty as plastic.

Sadly my dumpster front-cape made from old shopping bags will never come back in style, no matter how many pedophiles get strangled by them.

I saw Garfunkel and Oates on Wil Wheaton's Tabletop board game review show. Fun stuff.

Immaculately coiffed and manicured, this ain't your grandfather's arm hair.

Well, if he sold his hair, it could literally be.

Beware the bag tank. I invented the bag tank, and retired it in one evening.

Many a Halloween night, I have found myself scraping together a costume from whatever I can find on the way to a Halloween party. One Halloween -- many years ago -- I decided I would go as Fairway, the grocery store. I put on some green clothing and then managed to squeeze a plastic Fairway bag on as a tank top. But it wasn't complete. So, I then took a second Fairway bag (with paper liner) and made a Fairway bag hat. I cut out some eye holes in the side and it felt like a complete ensemble, so I made my way to some parties. As I walked along, I started getting a LOT of odd angry looks. Perhaps these people did not like Fairway's crowded aisles and achilles-heel bruising shopping carts? The chaos of the deli counter? The Upper West Side in general? So, I continued on. And the angry looks continued as well.

Eventually, I passed a storefront and caught my startling reflection in the glass. I had cut the eye holes in the side of the bag, which was completely white. The handles of the bag were sort of sticking up into a pointy cone, and it was nearly impossible to see any Fairway branding from the front. My light-hearted grocery store costume had somehow turned into an awful Klan-like hood. I ripped it off immediately and spent the rest of the night in the bag tank only, which sort of slowly disintegrated into me just dejectedly standing there in a green t-shirt holding an empty grocery bag.
