If you enjoy a little snarky humor, you'll enjoy the comments.

  1. It is wayyyy too early for me to be laughing so hard. Not so much at the recipe, but the comments, OMG, people are just tooo funny.

    1. It's not possible for me to laugh more.

      The single best comments are from the FN humour site.

      Someone posted.

      "Are RR fans really this dumb."

      "Yes. If you tell them it's chilly outside they run and get a bowl."

      I haven't laughed this hard since Alk posted "Cake Wrecks."

        "The paper towel tasted awful" put me into tears.

      2. OK - this is a very funny start to my day. A lot funnier than I expected. It was the 'peeing blood' comment on the FNH site that pulled me in, then, the 'Ron wins the internet' that sealed the deal. Really funny stuff.

          I have to go back and check out the comments from the FNH site - I just finished the ones on the actual FN site - very funny!

          If you go all the way to the beginningof the comments, there are actually entries thanking her for posting how to microwave the bacon. I think people might have been way less snarky in 2004.

        2. Here's another fantastic comment from the FTV recipe.

          "i put in to many minutes an the oven caught fire. spraid it with a hose an it got worse. bacon turned out burnt and soggy.
          yuk.
          P.S. you owe me a new trailer!"

          1. As of this AM the comments on the FN site are up. I have too much work to do to read all of this snark so of course that's exactly what I'm doing. You have no idea how much I need a good laugh right now. Thank you!
