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.com/event/article/id/231419/. 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.)

What a great question! Recently, IFC's Portlandia has been making me laugh. The food-related segments are especially funny. 'Is It Local?' is about the complexity of restaurant ordering: http://www.youtube.com...

And, 'Allergy Pride Parade' is pretty funny too: http://www.ifc.com/portlandia/videos/portlandia-allergy-pride-parade

This cartoon from The New Yorker always makes me laugh. I think I need it for my kitchen.

Speaking from experience, that never-ending salad bowl is freakin' awesome. Don't judge me.

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!
