As you may be aware at this point…
There is a lot of “clowning around” that goes on here.
Puns. Quips. Tomfoolery. And but of course… Innuendos.
The same could be said about the show Baskets, a TV show in its second season on FX (as of January 19th), that follows the life of a want-to-be French clown, Chip Baskets, played by Zach Galifianakis, who winds up moving back to California (to live with his insanely dysfunctional family) after he failed to make his dream to be a pitre come true; only to be hired instead as an all-American, “tried and true” rodeo clown.
I got to watch the first season when I was flying to Hong Kong and eating my fancy-schmancy shrimp appetizer…
Obviously, the comparison between the show Baskets and GiGi Eats Celebrities stops there… Because this show could be described as a dark comedy with lots of dry and blindly sarcastic humor… And my blog… Most definitely NOT DARK and my sarcasm is more apparent than “everyone’s” distaste for our new president.
Despite the differences, FX still sent me a Baskets-themed, gift basket (a holiday gift basket, that I did not receive until now, thanks to all of my travels), which showcases just how ridiculous this show is…
And perhaps they’re alluding to the fact that I too, in fact, can be slightly bizarre at times.
Seriously, though… CHEERS to being of the ODD variety!
However… I am not going to cheers to some of the things in the basket they sent me (although the items do only make me want to watch the second season of the show, that much more) because… Well… They’re not the healthiest.
Sure, I might “clown around” a lot here… But when it comes to living healthfully… I am no basket case!
So while I appreciate the gesture, and will certainly hang the ornament that came in the basket, on next year’s Christmas tree… This gift basket prompted me to create a GiGi-themed basket, that showcases my FOOD PERSONALITY to a T (i.e. filled with foods I eat EVERY SINGLE DAY and why)!
Check out the latest video to see what my…
Well, I would call it a GASKET, but a gasket is actually a ring of rubber that seals the junction between two surfaces in an engine…
So I will call it a GISKET… See what my gisket showcases by watching the video BELOW!
What I would include in my basket:
- Salmon, specifically from Whole Foods
- SeaSnax Nori Sheets
- Ground Grass-Fed/Finished Beef
- GI Bifido Bacteria
- Wink Frozen Desserts
