Good one's, Mac and cheese to a new level.

Marie Smith said...

So true about the lunchables.

Linda said...

The Bob Ross and Gordon Ramsey joke is my favourite one, hahaha!!! It's even better when you imagine their voices lol. I didn't know that charcuterie is a posh word in English, we use it here always, in our dialect. Now I wonder how English speaking people pronounce it. ;D

Boud said...

Perfect! Favorite is the cooking show commentary. Instant expertise, regardless of actual experience. As in sports stuff. We know all about gymnastics and double pikes. Real life: one day I'll do a complete somersault..

Liz Hinds said...

Serving size? Whose appetite is that based on? Certainly not mine.

I've never heard of lunchables.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Liz Hinds -- Maybe they're sold under a different name in Britain? Or maybe you've just been spared Lunchables altogether!

pam nash said...

Hmmm - think I'll try that omelet!

Martha said...

These are so funny! I really had to laugh about the charcuterie board since that's basically how we've been eating all summer lol!

Old Lurker said...

If you don't think Reese's Peanut Butter Cups aren't a choking hazard then just try eating one without peeling off the paper liner first.

The omelette one would be more convincing if the memer had spelled "omelette" properly.

bobbie said...

Too funny! And thanks for stopping by ~

Mistress Maddie said...

Oh, the poor male bee...bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And that is so me with the whipped cream too. But I like that whipped cream has, huh... multiple purposes.

Bob said...

They opened a "wine" bar here in Smallville, and a friend told me they had charcuterie. Then she showed me the charcuterie. Ham and cheese in a plastic to-go box.
I said, "That's a lunchable."

Oh, and Honey.Nut.Cheerio. slays.

DVArtist said...

These are all good. Have a great Monday.

Parnassus said...

Hi Debra, Who is Bob Ross and what (I'm almost afraid to ask) are lunchables?

Moving with Mitchell said...

I don’t know where you find these! Cooking Mac & Cheese without reading the instructions on the box? That was ME. And I really did think I was hot shit!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

hahaha
Loved the one with the Reddi Whip! Also, that baking soda package! Blockbuster? It's a collectible!
LOL

XOXO

Rain said...

Those are great Debra!!! :) The Bob Ross one had me giggling...I LOVED him. I have all 28 seasons of The Joy of Painting. I saw a documentary of his, he used to be a drill sergeant in the army, can you imagine???? "Now, drop quietly and give me fifty...you made a little happy accident there, but that's why pencils have erasers.".... LOL

Miss Val's Creations said...

Fun stuff! I love the thought of Gordon Ramsey and Bob Ross switching roles!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Parnassus (Jim) -- Lunchables are pre-packaged little slices of meat and cheese with crackers. They're very popular in kids' lunch bags. Not the healthiest of lunches perhaps, but kids have fun assembling them into (essentially) hors d'oeuvres.

The late Bob Ross was a PBS star in the 1980s and 90s. His program taught people how to paint landscapes. His style and mannerisms were exceedingly kind, gentle and quiet. Sort of like Mr. Rogers. He would paint "happy little trees" and "happy accidents." Bob Ross is now a popular meme on the internet.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Rain -- Bob Ross was a DRILL SERGEANT? Wow, talk about going from one extreme in a career to another! I can scarcely imagine him with a drill sergeant persona.

Parnassus said...

Hi again, I remember seeing Bob Ross before, now that you have explained, but I didn't know he was still a "thing." The lunchables sound horrible!
--Jim

Tundra Bunny said...

Thanks for clearing up the origin of charcuterie via the Lunchables generation! ROFLMAO!

Mike said...

I had to look up charcuterie. I did not have to look up lunchables.

Susan Kane said...

They are all so awesome. Bake off has obviously stretched it boundaries.

John M said...

I especially like the last one about launchables.

Joanne Noragon said...

Let's hear it for Reese's peanut butter cups. Gawd, I haven't had one of those for so long I'd probably be annihilated at the first bite.

bobbie said...

Congrats on your new govenor general!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ bobbie -- Thanks! Yes, Mary Simon is awesome and it's long overdue for Canada to have an indigenous Governor-General!

Lovely said...

This is hilarious! The mac and cheese one is so funny!

That Duncan Donuts sign had me dying. My Goddess if people ever knew the goodies that the doctor's lounge has they would scream.

baili said...

haha

pineapple without apple haha sounds like me haha

you rock dear Debra like always :)))

i enjoyed each and sooo much :)

Doctor Z said...

I am definitely not the lunchables generation; however, I loved to sneak cold cuts and cheese as snacks. My Mom would get so upset with me! Growing up, we were on a strict budge -- ham was expensive and was meant only for my dad. Us kids got bologna and cheese, or left overs as sandwiches like kielbasa sandwiches or Italian sausage sandwiches.

These days I will often buy cold cuts and cheese just for snacking ... not because I'm trying to be fancy, but because I can.

Jacqui Murray said...

Those are delightful. Great start to the day.

Yvonne said...

Lunchables? I had to think a bit about that one. I think back in my ancient time childhood we called them cold cuts. Love the bee and whipped cream ones.

Busy Bee Suz said...

SO many giggles here. The Blockbuster Baking soda....Hmmm...someone needs to clean out the pantry.

This N That said...

Good ones Deb..my kind of Omelet!!

Magic Love Crow said...

How long does it take you to find all of these? LOL! Love these all, especially the lunchables! LOL! So true!!! Big Hugs!

jono said...

Those last few answered a lot of my questions since I don't get out much. Thanks for that!

Kirk said...

When I was 8 or 9, I got to see Jerry Lewis perform live, and one of his jokes was, what is a doughnut? A pregnant Cheerio.

Guillaume said...

Funny, I gave my colleagues the mac and cheese recipe I have no later than today. It's the best mac and cheese.

LL Cool Joe said...

Who the hell puts a tub of parmesan cheese in their laptop bag? :D

Magaly Guerrero said...

The Ross and Ramsey one is freaking hysterical!

The Blog Fodder said...

Just catching up. Good ones, especially the Mac and cheese. Not being a Mac fan, I can truly laugh at it

Fundy Blue said...

I'll take that omelette, please! I am sick of heart healthy food! Have a great rest of the weekend, Debra!

Martha said...

The Bob Ross and Gordon Ramsey joke...BAHAHAHAHA!

Ur-spo said...

well done !

Rommy said...

The spicy thing only ever worked on Darling Eldest. Darling Youngest's fomo got them into adventurous eating at a young age.

yellowdoggranny said...

can't go wrong with lunchables..
