A few chuckles for the end of the week courtesy of The Pioneer Woman. The “little ol’ ranch wife” is on the road again. This time, she traveled to the Minneapolis area to fulfill her contractual obligations with Land O’ Lakes. First, this tweet from Ree’s latest meal ticket :

What would I say to The Pioneer Woman if I had a chance to meet her? That’s a rhetorical question, right? While blitzing the area with her ubiquitous bullshit, the Pioneer Woman also paid a visit to Twin Cities Live at the studios of the local ABC affiliate, KSTP. The Pioneer Woman was asked why she thought her food blog had surpassed others in popularity. We think this is what the cagey Pioneer Woman really wanted to say:
Eight months after I started my personal blog, I began posting food pics after seeing how great Deb Perelman’s were on her Smitten Kitchen site. I thought to myself, ’self, did you see how great girlfriend Deb’s photos looked…what a fabulous idea! I think I’ll…umm…borrow… that great concept and one-up her.’ So I decided to ‘incorporate’
wink, winkDeb’s idea, bought myself a bigger and better camera than Deb’s little ol’ Canon Rebel and posted 45 pics for every 1 pic Deb posted. Then I had Daddy Ladd grease the palms of publicists and sign me up at United Talent Agency. That’s how my blog became Numero Uno.
How is it two seemingly intelligent morning show hosts have fallen hook, line and sinker for this Internet hoax? Thanks to Suz for alerting us to this video:
And last but certainly not least, here’s the Tweet of the Week from certified Sheeple, Elishia Rousselle:
I would prob pee my pants if I won the iPad @thepioneerwoman is giving away. Pee my pants.
