Pinteste Round-up: Disgusting Salmon and Anus-Dragging

0 Posted by - January 8, 2013 - Announcements, Pinteste Round-ups

Oh, it’s been a fun one in the comments this week, guys.

But before I get to that, I owe you a winner from the December contest in the forum! The idea was for you to post pictures of your fails. Winner, as picked by a random number generator, is kasethepeanut!

She submitted this gem, her first attempt at making this particular salmon recipe. She says of it: “Disgusting.”


Kase, you win a mens style or womens style standard t-shirt, $16.60 value. Email me with your choice, size, and address!

Now, onward to your brilliance…

I am apparently a racist because of my Veggie Laksa Soup post. See the comments for an interesting discussion there.

Also, I told you that people get mad when I substitute.

SketchyD • And here I thought the “angry reader” comment you posted in “Champagne Jello Shots” was made up. Turns out, it was Jillian R.

Ptownsteveschick • It literally sounds like [Jillian R.] copied and pasted this from [the Pintester’s] responses to past comments that were exactly like this. For the sake of my own sanity I will call this comment failed sarcasm and no one will convince me otherwise.

You are an optimistic soul.

Because I am a snarky bitch, I semi-responded with Actual Advice Mallard. To refresh your memory:


And the winning comment:

pins&needles • When reading a humor blog, it helps to actually have a sense of humor.

Thank you for being more eloquent than I will ever be in the comments, you guys.

As expected, I received lots of hints for giving my dog pills on the Homemade Carpet Powder post. I promise, I’ve tried them all, guys. But thank you for attempting to save me from the drama of wrestling an ornery dog to the floor and shoving a pill down her throat.

SandraChelle • “And, as per usual, the dog chased me around as I vacuumed, barking and trying to bite the vacuum cleaner.” I read this sentence as though you were barking and trying to bite the vacuum. I giggled at the visual. ;0)

Oops. Shame on me for sloppy sentence structure. As per usual, the dog was being an asshole as I wrote that, barking out the window and alternately anus-dragging on the carpet. So I was distracted.

Love and kisses to you, Pintestes. Keep those awesome-tastic comments coming!

    Sonja…the other day was the first time I have EVER commented on your blog. Don’t know why you think I’m somebody else, but I promise it was my first ever comment and I really wasn’t trying to be rude. I don’t read your blog that often, just see your pins sometimes. I didn’t read the other comments but I can assume they were bitchy. Glad to see my name mentioned TWICE on this entry for things I didn’t even do.

      And again with the sloppy sentence structure on my part. No one is attributing any previous comments to you, Jillian. I promise. Just the one with your name on it.

    I feel like once you become so popular you will find people who don’t like what you do. It sucks, but don’t let it define you. You are awesome at what you do and by the many commenters/pintestes, people like what you do! Even if you explain time and time again what you do and why you are doing it people will find a reason to dislike something. You should start a bingo card and put reasons people dislike your posts/blog. You can add racism and not following directions. I am sure there are others but I am too lazy to flip back through and look. Hope your holidays were wonderful and ignore any grammar/spelling mistakes, it’s been a long morning with the baby!

    Of course the title of this post had “ass dragging” in it and Google put up an ad for dog anal gland treatment. It made my day.

      I got an ad for “a new kind of Love life”. Kinda made mine too!

        Anus dragging. A new kind of love life! Sign me up!

    Sometimes I’m mildly interested to see what something would turn out if a person (you) followed the directions without substitutions, but then if I wanted to see the official result, I could go read Martha Stewart. I read you because you talk about anus-dragging dogs and you never follow directions, even if I sometimes curse my computer screen when you’re doing a substitution! It’s kinda like watching the wimpy high school girl run upstairs in a horror movie when she should run outside instead: no good can come of it yet I can’t avert my eyes.

    I feel so dang special right now! Also, I freaking love your blanket response page.

  • Ptownsteveschick January 8, 2013 - 4:03 pm Reply

    Hey, there I am! I just started reading this blog a couple weeks ago on a recommendation,but went thru every post in 2 days. Keep up the good work! Now if only you would actually follow the instructions once and a while 😉

    One of the reasons I love your blog so much is because you’re a “normal person” like the rest of us. I don’t like going out to buy something small and expensive for one little project, so I’m going to MacGyver something else that may or may not work. I feel like you’re doing these pins like I would, and I really appreciate that. I want to know ahead of time if substituting will work, and, to be honest, I find it to be a huge relief if it happens to someone else first. Keep the posts coming, and I’m sorry your puppies are being stinky and difficult. <3

    I like the post title. I think it would make a fabulous cartoon.

    Disgusting Salmon and his side-kick Anus-Dragging.

    i don’t have a witty comment. You’re hilarious. That’s it.

  • Llama spit January 9, 2013 - 9:15 am Reply

    Now see, I got all excited thinking that I wasn’t the only one who barked and bit the vacuum cleaner while using it. You’ve let me down, woman. Let me down hard.

  • Harmony Wroblewski January 9, 2013 - 8:08 pm Reply

    I don’t give a crap what anyone has to say I read this blog cause its funny!!

  • Not Jillian January 9, 2013 - 9:32 pm Reply

    It might be the Nyquil talking, but did I miss what happened to that salmon? It does look disgusting but How? Why? Was ass dragging involved? We need all the disgusting details…

  • Jon in LR January 14, 2013 - 11:41 pm Reply

    Im a (somewhat) long time reader and I LOVE the blog and read it almost daily for updates. And I also love the “blanket response page”. Thats pretty much my life/facebook/work disclaimer LOL. And in regards to others posts about what ads they got on their page due to “ass dragging”, I got a hard wood flooring ad. Im not sure how we can directly relate that one to ass dragging though LOL

  • Gargoylz January 31, 2013 - 8:38 am Reply

    Hmmm…my Google saw disgusting salmon and anus-dragging and I think it exploded.
