Portlandia: Ordering the Chicken

As a followup to yesterday’s post, which included a clip from the IFC show “Portlandia,” I thought I’d share another one of my favorite “Portlandia” sketches, which also happens to be food-related.

If you haven’t seen the show, it’s the brainchild of Carrie Brownstein (Wild Flag, Sleater-Kinney) and Fred Armisen (SNL). Like many sketch-comedy shows, the bits can be hit-or-miss, from not really funny to honest LOL. Season 2 recently got underway, though the clip below is from the series premiere last year. In this sketch, Brownstein and Armisen play a couple out to dinner who want to know exactly how the chicken on the menu was raised. Perhaps it is possible to take being a conscientious omnivore a bit too far…

P.S. “Part 1” in the video name tantalizingly suggests there’s more of this bit to be had, but sadly it’s not available on Hulu, which is how cable-free, not-media-thieving households like mine watch the show. Thanks to Google, though, I discovered that (not surprisingly) part 2 features the couple visiting “Colin” on the farm, so let your imagination fill in the blanks.
