Today's highly enjoyable "foodie" Simpsons episode

Hilarity. I'm surprised nobody else posted on this yet. I'll have to watch it again just to catch the entire lyrics of the food blogger song & all the stuff going on in the background.

Guest appearances included Bourdain, Ramsay & Batali as well as sriracha, kim-chi, BTUs and Ethiopian food. Check it out if you have a chance!

    1. I watched chips. It is funny. Didn't SouthPark has something along the line.

      1. I thought it was kind of lame. I was really expecting more out of it. South Park, in my opinon, did a much better job with the premise.

          i haven't seen the southpark one, will have to look for it.

            I agree. The South Park episode was hilarious! I watched the Simpsons episode last night and it was just alright...I was expecting it to be a little better.

              I enjoyed the South Park one as well. But I find it difficult to compare as the type of humor is a bit different. They can take more risks in South Park as opposed to the 8P showtime of Fox's Simpsons.

              I thought the Simpsons one was quite funny. One of the foodies bore a resemblance to the Amateur Gourmet.

              1. Well, South Park was much more over the top, I thought, and the whole shake weight thing didn't really have much of anything to do with the 'main' plot.

                I just loved how many freaking foodie clich├ęs they mentioned -- as if they had been spying on the NAF / GCT boards.... for example, the special dish on the non-English side of the menu.

                I thought it was pretty clever.

                  What are the NAF / GCT boards? Thanks.

                2. While I would have enjoyed more scene time with the chefs, I thought it was very funny (what Simpsons episode isn't?) & cute. It also cemented my husband's question about the pronounciation of "pho" - lol!!! I dvr'd it & will be saving it on dvd.
