Ask the Internet: Food Funny?

Today’s question is a spinoff of yesterday’s post, and could be a nice diversion on this rainy, April showers kind of day:

Q: What is your favorite food-related comedy?

A: For about a year here on CHG, we had Favorites of the Week, which usually included a song, sketch, or piece of standup based on food. It was super fun to compile, and often yielded genius like:

Jim Gaffigan on Bacon

Monty Python’s “Spam”

Readers, what’s your favorite food comedy? Is it standup, sketch, or improv? Maybe a song? Or a simple quote?

If you have a link, please include! (Extra points for Vimeo and Youtube URLs, as Canadians can’t see Hulu. It’s kind of like their Snuffleupagus.)

Want to ask the interweb a question? Post one in the comment section, or write to Cheaphealthygood@gmail.com. Then, tune in next Tuesday for an answer/several answers from the good people of the World Wide Net

Sorry I'm at work and can't get Youtube (it's blocked!)

But Seinfeld's Soup Nazi, Marble Rye, and Cinnamon versus Chocolate Babka bread quickly come to mind!

Hands down, it's Patton Oswalt on KFC bowls... totally NSFW, but very, VERY funny.

I really love Eddie Izzard and his "Cake or death" stand up. Be forewarned most ofhis standup is NSFW.
