"Use sour cream to mark the yard lines. Squirt it through a turkey baster or just use a knife. Sausages make delicious players. The Saints are chorizo (the cured kind) with black olive helmets. The Colts are pepperoni with cocktail bocconcini helmets."

I'm a journalist, and that's seriously one of the best paragraphs I've ever read in a newspaper. You can take from that what you will.

What a monumentally stupid waste of time. Chips, dips, bowls and beer. There, I just saved you a hundred bucks.

That thing does not look appetizing at all, and I really can't figure out where all the money went for that. I see maybe $50 worth of ingredients, tops.
 
2010-02-05 12:16:29 PM
that's cute and all, but what is everyone else going to eat?

Holy fark, no wonder. Dude paid some ridiculous prices, like the roughly $17/lb for cracker barrel cheddar.

Maybe it's size is deceptive? Maybe it's much larger than it looks? Also the author might have bought the best of everything... not some 2 dollar tub of cheap sour cream, no, she needs the 10 dollar dub of gourmet all natural eco friendly sour cream... and those aren't a 3 dollar bag of tostitos, no those are from a 6 dollar bag of all organic corn chips from the local whole foods. Or something?

Here's the grocery list (also linked in the story.)

It's not anything too crazy, just a lot of little things that made up the $132. And keep in mind that's Canadian money.

It took about 90 minutes to build the stadium (plus more than seven hours to research, design, grocery shop, cook and assemble).

I never want to meet the person that would spend 8.5 hours on a project like that.

I will laugh out loud at the host of the party I'm going to if they do some stupid shiat like that, yuck.

That's all kind of gay - and not in the way with which there is nothing wrong.

How dare they attempt to feed you!??!? Those savages!! If someone tried to feed me and put the extra effort into presenting it a unique manner I'd spit in their face. I have no time for those kinds of shenanigans.

I think this is a Dave Foley gag.

The most complicated dip should be a 7-layer dip. Anything beyond that is fruity.

Refried beans layer, guacamole layer, sour cream layer, home made salsa layer, cheese layer, olives layer. That's only six... what's the 7th ingredient in a 7-layer dip?

Is it... love?

They just stole this idea from the Aztecs, who were the inventors of football (kind of, they called it something else and used a rubber ball instead of a pig skin because pigs were sacred). The Aztecs played this game vs. their rivals the Incans who worshipped the avocado. Avacado worship sounds stupid to us in modern days but remember that in olden days people didn't know that sex lead to babies so obviously they blamed the avocado. Anyways, back to snacks - the Aztecs made food displays like this to scare the Incans but Incans, as avocado worshippers, are not impressed by maize.

Why so many are so fat.
That doesn't even look appetizing.
 
2010-02-05 02:14:25 PM
The colors have nothing to do with the competing teams, the field is tiny and way wide but too short, there is massive space around the perimeter that I can't understand, there aren't enough actual eats which is a fundamental error, and the columnist is fugly. Instead of falling instantly in love, I have lost my appetite and am irritated. Subbyfail.
 
2010-02-05 02:14:50 PM
I see the stands are segregated by snack food. Why's it gotta be like that?
 
2010-02-05 02:14:52 PM
Is that C$132.19? Because I've got the US$ amount between my seat cushions.

/Of course, if that was US$, then making one in Toronto will require the combined lifetime salaries of Alan Thicke, Bryan Adams, and Martin Brodeur.

This looks more like fail to me.

Why are Canadians watching the Super Bowl....?

Don't they have hockey to watch?

What a monumental waste of time. That's 8.5 hours that wasn't spent judging people on Fark!

That "stadium" is just... grotesque.

I honestly think I would enjoy building the snack tray more than watching the game.

CAT LITTER CAKE RECIPE - A sure fire hit for the next family get together or party. WANT TO HAVE FUN AT A PARTY? PREPARE THIS RECIPE AND WATCH YOUR FRIENDS' FACES !!

[*NOTE: THIS CAKE CONTAINS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT IS NOT EDIBLE!!*]

CAKE INGREDIENTS

1 box spice or German chocolate cake mix

1 box of white cake mix
1 package white sandwich cookies
1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix
A few drops green food coloring
12 small Tootsie Rolls or equivalent

SERVING "DISHES AND UTENSILS"

1 NEW cat-litter box
1 NEW cat-litter box liner
1 NEW pooper scooper

Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan. Prepare pudding and chill. Crumble cookies in small batches in blender or food processor. Add a few drops of green food coloring to 1 cup of cookie crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar. Set aside.

When cakes are at room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with half of the remaining cookie crumbs and enough pudding to make the mixture moist but not soggy. Place liner in litter box and pour in mixture.

Unwrap 3 Tootsie Rolls and heat in a microwave until soft and pliable. Shape the blunt ends into slightly curved points. Repeat with three more rolls. Bury the rolls decoratively in the cake mixture. Sprinkle remaining white cookie crumbs over the mixture, then scatter green crumbs lightly over top.

Heat 5 more Tootsie Rolls until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with crumbs from the litter box. Heat the remaining Tootsie Roll until pliable and hang it over the edge of the box.

Place box on a sheet of newspaper and serve with scooper. Enjoy!

Third In Line: Why so many are so fat.

I'm fat and it still doesn't look appetizing.

Here's how you do it... get the wife to make the disgusting-sounding but delicious cheese dip consisting of throwing a log of velveeta and a can of rotel tomatos in the microwave. Tortilla chips. Then get your lazy ass outside to make chicken wings on the grill. Throw some ranch dressing in a bowl and cut up some celery - there, you're done.

Needs more bacon.

I'm eating whatever the bar menu has on it while drinking a bucket of beer and rooting for the Saints!

/Yay for sports bars!

So it is true. Canadians hate the Super Bowl. Give me chile, chips & dip, and ribs.

Why build an entire stadium when a simple bacon narwhal or two would suffice?

This.

I have no problem with someone putting some effort into the presentation of food. But, this just plain sucked. It looks like shiat. I don't know how this woman spent so much time doing "research" to come up with this mess. She needs to talk to that dad that makes superhero lunches for his kid. That guy was a 100 times better and does it every freaking day.

This is $132.19 in Canadian dollars, which means it cost about fifteen bucks.

Not love. Ask Tyler Durden what the last layer is.

A few more minutes of research and maybe she would have realized that the goal posts are on the wrong edges of the field.
