Comedy sketch about ordering chicken

This clip is from Portlandia, the new sketch comedy show starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. I think they do a good job capturing the ridiculous extent people are taking the "organic" trend in food these days:

    I live in berkeley, ca, which has many similarities to Portland in terms of food prefernces. I found the sketch absolutely hysterical, and quite over the top.

            Screw Hulu and their anti-Canadian policies. This is an outrage!

              Does IFC also have anti-Canadian policies? If not, try this:

                Looks like IFC have a Canadian-friendly agenda. Thanks, small h.
