Readers, I have a confession: sometimes I'm a failure in the kitchen. Take, for example, the picture below. My father recently watched Tyler Florence make the most delectable Spanish tapa where a raw egg is wrapped in jamon serrano, placed atop béchamel and toast, and baked in the oven. TyFlo made it look exceptionally easy.
However, when my dad and I went to recreate the dish, the ham wasn't strong enough to hold the eggs. The eggs rolled off the slippery white sauce and onto the baking sheet. After wasting eight eggs, we managed to get three nestled inside the ham. Then, when we removed the final product from the oven, the toast and eggs were stuck to the pan! Our breakfast was a complete disaster.
While we laughed it off, and managed to take a couple tasty bites of the mess, I got to thinking about failed recipes. Have you ever gone through a similar experience, where the recipe doesn't work? What recipe was it and how did you handle the situation?
Failure is the new success, at least on the Internet. Even if you don't watch this whole thing all the way through, definitely watch until you get to my favorite part. That would be when the woman kicks her would-be mugger's ass on the elevator. I love that surveillance video footage! Owned, indeed. (For more fail-related posts, click here.)
Here's the unedited original with some grody animal acts I figured I'd spare you.
You win some, you lose some. If we did everything perfectly, the gal next to us wouldn't get that oh so refreshing mid-party shower. We'd never see some dude's head stuck in some other dude's underpants. We would never get electrocuted during a drunken night out on the town. Failure is part of the fun, you see. (Want more failure?

Whenever I make a cake, I usually use a bit of parchment paper on the bottom of the pan. This way the cake won't stick to the pan and I'll have nice and even surface to work with. I either cut out a square or circle to fit the bottom of the pan, or I create a parchment-paper sling.
Unfortunately I said usually. To find out what happened when I didn't, read more
LOLCats has taken the Internets by storm, but they bettr watch out. There's a new breed of funny in town and they ain't in the mood to play games. . .cuz they never really win anyway. Forget all them fancy misspellings and talk of cheezburgers, cuz Fail Dogs do it differently. They fail. At just about everything. For more, visit Fail Dogs.
