Aw man, I wanted to like it but wow, really not funny, I am an easy laugh but not even a smile.

So scripted, and not in a good way.

So, this FPP is nothing but open pandering to the Pittsburgher Mefites?

I'm OK with that!

Maybe it's a nostalgia thing? Yeah it's scripted, but most of the humor is of the "oh my god, that's EXACTLY what my dad would say" type.

Does "smoking tobeys" mean anything to the Picksburt-ites out there? A friend's mom is lovingly incoherent sometimes, and she's talked about smoking some kind of plain old plant (the tobeys) like a cigarette/cigar.

Also, pierogies.

This was when she was a kid, so her memory of it might be going, too.
