    “His name was Colin.”

    Ha! That’s pretty damn hilarious! And I’m not even a Portlander, but they could’ve called it “Burlingtonia,” because it’s exactly the same here.

      Chicken thighs are my favorite. Everything else and I feel like chicken is boring.

    My husband and I died laughing at that clip when we first saw it. We still refer to it! But . . . hey, if it’s what you have to do these days, then so be it. 🙂

      We refer to this skit often. It’s SO PORTLAND!

    Yup, I’ve seen that clip before and as a fellow Northwesterner I guess I’m not too far off from that (though I don’t eat chickens, maybe that’s even more Portlandia). I pick up eggs from the farm and I do care that the chickens get to run around and forage.

      We’ve talked about getting chickens for years. Neither Michael nor I would be able to “take care” of them if they got sick (i.e. kill them). So that’s kind of kept us from doing it.

    You’re lucky Portlandia is not like Swamplandia!

      Oooof! No thanks! My brother lives in Philly. He says it’s a swamp there.

    Soooooo funny. I especially loved the waitress. The photo of the chicken. Hilarious. I’m with you on the chicken thighs. I don’t do chicken breasts so much any more. When I do a whole chicken- yes.

    Thighs or stir fries and chicken dishes- I’ve been buying organic thighs at Costco. I get the heebie-jeebies thinking about the name of the chicken(s). I give thanks to good mother earth and farmers before I eat.

      I have a hard time with eating meat and trying not to think that it used to be an animal. That’s the part I struggle with most. I was a vegetarian for over a decade. Sometimes it’s hard to turn that off in your brain.
