What's your favorite piece of food-related humor?

This newspaper restaurant review for the Olive Garden has been floating around the Internet recently: http://www.grandforksherald.... Besides being inherently funny because of its seriousness, it can also be seen as an inadvertent poke at foodies in general. So my question is, what's your favorite piece of food or foodie-related humor. (Because sometimes we need to laugh at ourselves.)

OMG! "Culinary terrorism"! Love it.

And, I have an embarrassing thing to confess: I too have used a round wooden spoon when a square one was called for... Whew! I feel so much better getting that off my conscience!
