Bring me that one, the SAUCY wench!

June 3, 2010


Blog Guy, I have a problem. I love giving dinner parties, but I don’t have enough storage space in my kitchen for all of my pots and pans and cooking utensils. What should I do?

JAPAN/You’re in luck. There was just a fashion show that addressed this very need, for chefs who are under your kind of, uh, strain.

So don’t stew over what to ware in the kitchen. By combining cooking tools with your wardrobe, you’ll not only curry favor, but you’ll also look TRAY chic!

I think I’m going to vomit. You’re turning my problem into an opportunity to make outrageous puns, aren’t you?

Maybe, but I’m not very proud of it.

Oh, I’m sorry, I can see you have feelings, too. Are you upset?

Yes, just a ladle bit…

Stop it! Look, why don’t you come over and let me cook you a nice dinner? Are you free tomorrow?

Let me just look at….

BLOG GUY, I’m warning you!

…my colander…

“Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. After about 30-35 minutes of baking we will have a nice, fresh Oddly Enough blog network! Doesn’t that smell just yummy enough to join?”

I would have figured these clothes were designed by a guy who was paranoid his woman was sneaking around on him.

Oh Baz, as blog posts go, this one takes the cake!

Do you lay awake at night thinking this stuff up?



Posted by egeria | Report as abusive

Man, check out the size of her pans!

@Shra … what shoes?

This blog has gone to pot. I’m whisking outta here.

Blog guy, you’re butchering the language, to say nothing of always stirring the pot and grating on our nerves. Time to peel off and take the other fork in the road …

Shiny, shiny kitchen things. Better than scantily clad boxers any day of the week. :)

Slick, I love those! I bet you’re quite a dish yourself….

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

Meh, he’s just roasting you, Blog Guy.

Posted by REDruin | Report as abusive

RED, I know from past exchanges that Slick is a chick…

The worst part about wearing a dress like that to a party is that people are always stirring you all night.

For the cold-weather months, may I suggest a bun warmer?

Frankly, Blog Guy, It’s a wonder that you didn’t work some spoonerisms in with your pan puns.

You know, if I saw a woman wearing one of these outfits, I would go up to her and say “I’ve got some Shake and Bake back at my place.”

Why should I have to strain to find the humor in all this? What a crock.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Ok let me see if I have a handle on this; some guy thinks I should get a rise out of culinary puns?? Man you have been loafing around too much and if you weren’t as slick as teflon, i would make that comment stick!

I hate to be rude, but if this was truly done in gest, then you might just be a cereal blogger who doesn’t deserve his celery!

@Ifly: Cheer up buddy, have you EVER seen a girl with more than three pots? 😀 😀

Cam: There is a shoe shot where the blog list is… doesnt show up here, which is weird…
I wonder what I should make over the weekend… those utensils would definitely be very useful… 😛

Lol Kitty!! Welcome to OE!!

@fwd…, no I have not come to think of it. I think this is cause for an extra medidoughnut! :)

Blog Guy, re: Slick – So it’d be fair to say: oops, out of the frying pan (and sauce pan and -) and into the fire? I’m looking hard for a tea kettle, seeing as how I’m getting into hot water here…

All that talk is making me hungry… like thats even possible!!!

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Whoever designed those was obviously smoking pot.

He’s just spoon-feeding us humor, you all know it.
