Normally, any video's comment section is a well-recognized place of madness. When the video itself sinks slowly into crazy, however, the comments can act as a guiding light back to reality. 

Take this video that HGTV recently shared on Facebook:

Things start out pretty normal here. We've got a cake, a little sparsely iced but otherwise nothing too unusual. Then...

Step 2: just throw some herbs on top of the cake. Just get some nice leafy herbs and put them on top of the cake. WE'VE VENTURED INTO MADNESS.

Step 3: dump a whole lot of strawberries, one lemon wedge and two macaroons on top. A strange assortment, made only more unusual by...

Step 4: Put MORE herbs around the bottom of the cake. Nothing but herbs. 

"What a delicious, leafy, herby cake, right?! RIGHT?!" -an HGTV producer whose life is falling apart at the seams:

For maybe the first time EVER, the Facebook comment section provided relief:

The comments offered a glimpse of sanity through the chaos of so many herbs:

Jennifer knows who would like this cake:

Facebook commenters pull no punches:

Perhaps this is all part of a social experiment:

Wait, maybe the filmmakers knew what they were doing:

NO, NO, NO, IT'S MADNESS I SAY! MADNESS, I TELL YOU! THIS CAKE IS INSANE!

Thanks to the comment section for saving my sanity after watching this cake clip four times in a row. You're the real heroes today:
