UMAMI MART MATSURI FESTIVAL






I went to visit one of my very best friends last week in San Diego. And while we could have spent the days on the beach, hanging out in flip-flops and throwing around frisbees (my dream life, duh), you know what we did? Laid around and watched Tim and Eric Awesome Show on her couch. Friggin' best show ever. Perverse. Strange. Absurd. Ridiculous. Every time I watch it, I wonder, "How the hell did this ever get on television?" It's that amazing.

We watched episode after episode, and the one that stuck with me the most was this one. H'AMB NOT LAMB!

And for the seafood lover, now there's Ham'bster. 17% cheaper than lamb!

Thanks... Cinco. How can we get that aerosol spray?

  • Bleh, your video only works in the US :-(

  • TIM AND ERIC humor is so close to Japanese humor— perhaps the closest this country has ever been able to experience. It’s such little-boy-bathroom-slapstick-ridiculousness. Like Kureyon-shin-chan (Crayon Shin-chan??) or Obbocchama-kun or Ken Shimura’s BAKATONO.

    LOVE IT.

  • Yes… except I would marry Tim the minute he asked. He’s super hot. You can have Eric.

    We should do a post about food on Tim & Eric’s show, they always have this way of making something delicious into the most nasty gob.

    Now where is that All Season Box Set when you need it?

  • NOT FAIR!

    I think we are soul mates.

  • Anders, can you see H’AMB now??

  • Not translated as funny as it could be, but here’s BAKATONO. I totally grew up on this (which really explains a lot about me I think).

  • Oh my god.. yes, I can see it. Fab.
    Never knew about Baka Tono – hilarious!

    Anders on

  • Man, you are cranky pants today! Go hang out in some air conditioning and listen to Lady Gaga or something. Bakatono is AMAZING.

    kayoko on

  • Hamb part is fine, but Baka-tono has nothing to do with food. Shimura Ken is funny though..
