This week, Brendan (Fred Armisen) and Michelle (Carrie Brownstein) were feeling lethargic, sluggish and generally under the weather until they discovered that raw milk is a miracle cure-all. A miracle that the FDA is trying to prevent you from enjoying! Check out this clip as they storm a doctor’s (Ed Begley Jr.) office to spread the truth about raw milk.

On Portlandia, raw vegan restaurants have fart patios

“I farted. Excuse me.”

The 4-year-old says that 20 times a day, anywhere, but especially when grandma visits.

Raphael Brion of Eater writes that on the Friday episode of Portlandia, portlandia-fart-patioteachers Malcolm (Fred Armisen) and Kris (Carrie Brownstein) go to Prasad Cafe, a local, raw vegan restaurant (it’s actually a rea

l restaurant/juice bar in Portland that serves “wholesome vegan bowls” and things like chipotle vegan scramble). The side effects of raw vegan bowls is, of course, massive flatulence.

“We’ve been getting a lot of complaints,” says the waitress. “If you do need to flatulate, we have a designated area.” She sends them to the Fart Patio, which is like the Portland version of a cigarette smoking patio.
