IFC’s “Portlandia” is one of the funniest shows on television. At least, my 12-year-old son and I think it is.


I find the show is funniest when it’s poking fun and making caricatures of people who are kind of like me, who can sometimes take the things we care about to self-righteous extremes. In the most recent episode, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have a little fun with the horror of forgetting your reusable bags at the grocery store.



Did you laugh?

Robin Shreeves ( @rshreeves ) focuses on food from a family perspective from her home base in New Jersey.

Sometimes, we just have to laugh at ourselves.
