Oh man, I just started laughing (out loud, really loudly) at work while reading the Vanilla Garlic piece! So, so, so funny. I need to wipe away the tears now.

Giant Burrito to Solve all of Area Man's Problems for 6 Precious Minutes was THE BEST!! Hilarious. Thanks for the laughs this am.

Thanks for several laughs! Ryan Sutton's review was a breath of fresh air. To me, the funniest thing about the Vanilla Garlic piece was the missing the bottom step.
