Back. Better. Still hates Mondays.

Lasagna Cat (more up to date YouTube channel) was a bizarre homage to the syndicated comic strip Garfield, produced by the digital content house FatalFarm (previously). After a decade in hiatus, Lasagna Cat is back! Content Warning: Some comic gore and disturbing imagery throughout, slightly NSFW.

The number does indeed work, and does indeed do as advertised. You get a nice little jingle, too.

I was just wondering the other day what happened to FatalFarm! I loved their alternate TV intros.

Ha! I love Lasagna Cat and haven't thought about it in a while. Back when Garfield Fever was sort of gripping the weird-art internet it was one of my favorite specimens of the whole thing.

This guy started working with Tim and Eric, at least for some of their commercials and music videos. I've always wished he made more solo stuff, but you can definitely see his touch in the later stuff.

Just call 1 (800) 591-3274. That's 1 (800) 591-FARG.

best news, this!! first phone call I made in 2017 without a sense of dread.

(weird since the trailer does suggest that post-call gore -- but I'm just like [dialing immediately] 'I pledge allegiance to Fatal Farm')

Callled the number from an anonymous SIP trunk we pirated a number from. Was rewarded with a recorded song before the SBC clamped down and I had to dump the VPN.

Buy eggs and .40 ammunition, and try not to look at the sky when it appears lavender-green after midnight. I can say no more.

Never heard of them before this post. Checked out their channel. First video was an alternate TV intro to Ducktales where the joke was "What if... child pornography? LOL"

Nope.

Fuck these guys.

I also came to post that (although with less effort). I'm at work, so I'm waiting to get home to dive into it.

I can't stop watching the sexual partners survey.
posted by codacorolla at 2:57 PM on February 23, 2017 [1 favorite]


The survey video is amazing. I love both the technical goofery they came up with to reduce some of the repeated effort, and the great big pile of effort they went to anyway to customize each segment.

Also, I feel compelled both to insist that folks be aware that the last few minutes of it break from form and to insist that they proceed with caution if they're not up for some gonzo pseudo-Lynchian content complete with a final stunning grossout. It feels a little spoilery to say that but man I don't even know what to do with this information other than describe it as an apotheosis of Lasagna Cat's loving hateful deconstruction of the idea of Garfield as humor.

I watched the whole... uh, season? My favorite was the Michael Mann pastiche. And the bonkers end to the sexual survey. And everything. And the whole pipe video.

With all of the crazy subsidiary material, and this thread being nearly a month old, I think a new one would be good. I don't particularly feel like making one that would do LC justice, though. Someone can take my pipe, is what I'm saying.

I hear long-sleeve, blue polo shirts are back in style. SAVE YOUR CHILDREN FIRST! BURROW IN EARNEST! BURROW! it is most likely too late.
