Six Ways to Super Bowl Rickroll Party Guests With Appetizers

Super Bowl parties are awesome -- unless you're a fan of the team the host hates. You're a Packers fan but you're headed to a party that'll mostly be Steelers fans. Or you're a Steelers fan headed to a party that's going to be Packers-heavy. And on top of that pain, they expect you to bring an appetizer? No problem.

It's time to support the team you love by pwning your enemy with some Super Bowl appetizer rickrolling. Tell the host you're bringing something mouthwatering, but really show up with something lame and kinda disgusting:

1. "Hey guys, I brought pinwheels!"

Ingredients: 1 frozen burrito, sliced into rounds. Preparation: Blast burrito in the microwave for 30 seconds to turn burrito into the food equivalent of Icy Hot: hot on the outside to burn your face off, still icy in the middle to soothe the pain. Slice into rounds and beautifully arrange on a plate.

2. "Salsa, anyone?"

Ingredients: your collection of expired salsa and hot sauce from Taco Bell (substituting Taco Bueno or Wendy's would also work), 1 bowl.

Preparation: Dump unopened packages into bowl.

3. "Sure, I can bring sliders."

Ingredients: 1 McDonald's Quarter Pounder, 1 McDonald's Filet-O-Fish

Preparation: Tear burger and fish sandwich into smaller, slider-looking bites. Carefully lick the top of each slider so they glisten beautifully. Serve.

4. "I made this 7-layer bean dip all by myself."

Ingredients: 3 slices leftover ham & pineapple pizza (if leftover is unavailable, frozen pizza also works. But just thaw it, do not bake), 1 can refried beans, 2-dozen deviled eggs, 2 cups leftover chicken lo mein, sour cream (or curdled milk), Walgreens Gentle Laxative, shredded cheddar

Preparation: Layer each ingredient in a lovely casserole dish, serve.

5. "Screwdrivers!"

Ingredients: 1 shot of vodka, orange juice, just a dash of Vicodin.

Preparation: Combine ingredients in a glass filled with ice. Enjoy a quiet game by halftime.

6. "Sweet! Football Cake."

Ingredients: 3 tubs of Pillsbury whipped milk chocolate icing, 1 package white Pillsbury decorating icing, 1 Pillsbury yellow cake mix, 1 cup potato salad, 1 cup cole slaw, 12 Kroger deli chicken wings, paper towels.

Preparation: Bake yellow cake as package directs, cut in half. Put top layer aside. On bottom layer, evenly spread potato salad, followed by cole slaw. Next, add chicken wings and paper towels (tip of the hat to Bill Cosby). Top with the second cake layer, cut into football shape. Carefully frost with chocolate icing. Draw white laces on top of football cake. Serve.

That was pretty cool.
