Funny Food Videos

More truth in humor today courtesy of the spoof news site, The Onion. My Dad sent me the first of these videos. He’s always looking to keep me in good spirits these days with a little laughter. Thanks!

While there, I noticed the following. This may be even closer to real life, especially considering the development of test tube meat!

Recession And Its Effects On Diet

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

So, I’m curious…
How has the recession affected your diet and food choices?

For me, as I wrote previously, I planned and have undertaken a shift to more beans, carrots, corn, and the like (you know, heartier stock) in order to keep costs down; the price on greens around here is often just outrageous.

What I didn’t anticipate was how strongly these foods and that other legume, the peanut (in butter form), would cause the ‘ole “carb cravings.” Still a healthy diet, mind you, but it’s made controlling calories all the more difficult.

In some ways, stress is likely a contributing factor as well. And yet, I’m having fun and doing what I want. It’s largely the same work (programming), except now it’s for my own and other entrepreneur’s projects rather than for a corporation and is more web-based than what I was doing at the j.o.b..

It’s also easy to see why there’s been a reported trend toward beer and away from wine and spirits. The reasons given in the aritcle where I read this in the latest Beer Advocate magazine attribute it to a money saving trend (though they point out wine and spirit drinkers don’t immediately jump to Bud, but instead to high end beers which are still less expensive). I blame it on the carbs! Just kidding… I think… a little. :)

Apropros the times, I thought you might enjoy this clip. There’s such truth in comedy, wouldn’t you agree?!
