Laugh (2009 Challenge)

What was your biggest belly laugh of the year?

I was at Maria’s house. She showed me a booklet, circa 1950-something-or-other. Here’s her description of it:
It’s from the gas assoc and the title is Food Is Fun, with the scary 1950's version of the Hansel & Gretel witch on the front...however inside you find out that cooking is like dancing.... omg you made me look at it again and I'm laughing so hard I can't breathe!

Okay, it was late. Okay, we'd just spent four hours lolly-gagging over margaritas at an outdoor cafe. But the recipes were hideously hilarious and the pictures hilariously hideous! Example: bananas with bacon. Note the loveliness of the finished product at the 3:00 position in this photo.

We laughed til we peed!

Pg 3: "And the major tool of your cooking craft is your automatic gas range built to CP standards. For this is controlled heat you are using when you cook with gas...the fastest, the most flexible heat there is (yeah baby!) A flick of the finger brings up a full hot flame (oooh), or lowers it to tiny pin points for simmering (ahhh)."

-signed "The Home Service Girls" from pg 29

(No I didn't. I did not make up one single word of that.)
