Almost Pizza: ... This was another fake commercial - for "Almost Pizza" — it looks like pizza, it tastes like pizza, it smells like pizza — but we never find out what it actually is, or why there's a need to find a substitute for pizza. All we know is that when it falls on the floor it sounds like shattering glass, but, not to worry, "it's still alive." Well, what exactly are you expecting them to come up with at 5 am in the writer's room? Comedians. They have demons.

Off-topic, but endlessly amusing to me. My mother-in-law (amazing cook) hosts a big Thanksgiving dinner every year.

This year, one of her guests asked if she could bring along someone else who didn't have anywhere else to go.
