Lame Tips of the Day
So "The Nest", a magazine given to people who registered for TheKnot.com while they were planning their wedding, looks interesting on the cover, but always proves to be less then so once you really read the articles. For example, they have an article about how to "fake a fabulous party". Take a gander at these lame "tips" and our commentary:
- "Buy French fries from your favorite take-out place just before the party" - Yum, everyone likes cold limp French fries. Serious, the slow eaters of the world know that they should eat their fries before their burger aka. while they are still good.
- "Buy freshly made cookies from a bakery…and, yes, say you baked them yourself" - All your fiends love a little dishonesty for dessert. Want to make them really excited about cookie, rip open a bag of Oreos, and have plenty of milk on hand!
- "Use store-bought Caesar salad dressing instead of making it yourself" - That's not a tip, that's what 99% of party planners do anyway. The real tip: put it in a gravy boat so it actually looks like you are pretending to make your own. Then tell all your friends what you did, it will make for a great laugh.
- "Use 20 onces of forzen winter squash in lieu of fresh squash" - Now that is a tip! I didn't even know you could buy frozen squash, but I guess it makes sense, you can buy frozen anything.
Lame is exactly what this is.
