How Much Mayonnaise Again?

In It Came From YouTube! on August 3, 2009 at 4:00 pm

I spend a lot of time on YouTube searching for the next Chris-Chan, but unfortunately I’ve not found anything near as entertaining yet.  I did, however, discover Simply Sara.

Sara likes to share her own concoctions on the Internet, teaching us all how to cook with some brief lessons.  Let’s take a look at one, shall we?

Wanda’s Macaroni Salad

It’s not your traditional macaroni salad!

In a bowl, beat together and incorporate…

  • One 14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of white vinegar
  • 1 pint of “real” mayonnaise

Afterwards, add

  • 1 pound box of elbow macaroni
  • 1 large green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 large carrots OR 2 cups shredded carrots
  • Salt and Pepper, as desired

According to Sara, the final calorie count is 6805, with 358 grams of fat…but only 68 of those are saturated!

Now, I’m not an expert chef or anything, but I do enjoy cooking.  That said, am I the only one who thinks this seems a bit overboard?  Why is there so much mayonnaise?  There’s only a few more videos up on Sara’s ID.  From what I gather, she recently deleted an account and re-upped the videos, choosing to disable the comments, since all the videos were uploaded one month ago.

Easily The Most Racist Commercial You'll Ever See

In It Came From YouTube! on July 22, 2009 at 7:40 am

Local commercials are hilarious. That’s really all there is to it. So I’m on YouTube, browsing them for a kick, when I find this.



I mean, holy crap! Not only is it incredibly racist, but did he just say he’d kick a puppy!? Good for a laugh, but still….wow. Feel free to burn up the comments with your thoughts and opinions.

Edited to add…
When I posted that, I hadn’t seen this one. Maybe I’ll post a few more as the day goes on, but there’s another one under the jump.

Correction!

In Blogs, Comic News, Comic Reviews on July 4, 2009 at 8:32 pm

bwculsmCully Hamner impressed the shit out of us in his Question second feature in Detective Comics last week, and I gushed over it repeatedly in the review.

Unfortunately, I was so busy being amazed by his work that I gushed over it repeatedly referring to him as Curly Hammer.  Which is really depressing and embarrassing on my part…especially when Mr. Hamner was the one to point it out in the comments!

So, the article in question has been fixed, and many apologies to Mr. Hamner.  Many thanks also for visiting the site.  We’ll be sure to get it right in the future.

Site should be running at 100%.  Sorry for the downtime, it was completely my fault.  But, no posts were lost (Though we did lose a comment or two and some Diggs, but you guys’ll replace those, right?  ….right?) so its all cool beans.

In Memory of Owen Hart

In Blogs on May 23, 2009 at 4:34 pm

10 years ago today (on May 23rd, 1999 to be exact) Owen Hart was tragically killed doing a stunt at the WWF Over the Edge Pay-Per-View. I would just like to make this short post in tribute to a great man and one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Owen is truly missed.
