Wait a minute, this isn't real! From the editors wrapped in blankets at the green market to the flying pink unicorn (or was I hallucinating?) this is brilliant. Nice antidote to high'fallutin foodiness, Thank You!

I was so bummed this was a hoax lol! The dishwashing scene was perfect - reminds me of an essay I loved from Cooking for Mr. Latte, Amanda. :o)

Ha! Loved it. Got me with that one. There I was, watching the video and wondering why the cue card was so far off to the side and then watching the kids all crowded around the table. Made me wonder if it was real or not, considering the price of real estate in New York. Ignore the grumpy people that do not appreciate a little levity on the first day of April.

You should not pull jokes on people over 70 they can get very disappointed if they don't win.
