This meme has passed its prime, but this example of it is a tad funny.

Diogenes: This meme has passed its prime, but this example of it is a tad funny.


I've noticed that virtually every time this meme is greenlit, the general consensus seems to be "God I wish this meme would die, but this one's actually pretty funny."

I think it's one of those "I hate Congress, but I love my Congressman" things.

I don't see anything wrong with either. It's very common to hate the class but like specific instantiations. All it means is that there sometimes outstanding examples within the category. It's not necessarily a sign of hypocrisy or myopia.

And sometimes, of necessity, you have no choice to accept and/or participate in the whole. So when that's the case, you'd prefer to have your little bit of the whole work for you, no?

The only thing that seperates this meme from literally every single other dogshiat awful fark headline cliche is that it has some room for the submitter to be creative. You are framing the joke the same way every time, but at least you are forced to think of your own content a little bit.

SOME supporters of Mitt Romney, in an effort to make him seem more human (or at least humanoid), have been disseminating a story, first told by a biographer, about how their candidate has a charmingly eccentric habit: he eats only the tops of muffins.

I wouldn't have thought that talking about how an out of touch rich guy wastes food could be a positive story. I doubt you'd find too many blue collar worker types that buy a 3 dollar muffin only to eat 1/5th of it, who is this story supposed to resonate with?

Will muffin-top-gate cause other immigrant parents to join their Democratic-leaning children?

Don't know. Maybe Romney is just bluffin' with his muffin.

The top of the muffin represents the top 1% of earners in the US. They're the only part you can't throw away.

Todd Palin? Who are we talking about?

1) The practice seems really wasteful.

2) I don't know why the author thought it would resonate specifically with Asian immigrants as opposed to resonating with anybody who doesn't like to waste food. It felt like TFA had column space to fill and so reached for a personal connection to another weird Mitt Romney quirk.

My dad who grew up during the Depression would have been pretty disgusted by this story. No clue how he used to vote before the Parkinson's dementia kicked in though.

So, so sad Mitt does not seem interested in being his father's son.

Perhaps the Romney campaign is sending some sort of coded message to some special interest group on the right? If not, this just makes it sound like Romney makes decisions based on ignorance.

Christ, that WAS asinine.

"His theory is that during the baking process, the butter sinks to the bottom."

Any Fark foodies familiar with this theory? Is there any evidence to support it?
I don't recall eating any butter-bottomed muffins.

/heh

The people who'd buy the next line of the article: His theory is that during the baking process, the butter sinks to the bottom.

Did he really say that? Or did someone really say that about him thinking they were serious? I mean, really?
 
2012-09-05 01:43:11 PM  
As much of a waste of space as the article was, does the RNC expect me to connect with their candidate because he wastes food?

Is there seriously not a better use for that six inches of column space?

//I mean, technically I agree that wasting food is stupid, but what the fark.
 
2012-09-05 01:48:29 PM  
I have pans that make muffin tops without the muffin.

But - If the muffin has a bottom, I eat that too. Six kids in the family, food was not wasted.

They are yummy.

Also, someone buy me this.

FTA: "This story conveys so many things: our guy is an everyday Joe - he eats muffins, not crumpets."

Crumpets are delicious. They are hardly snoot food because they are hard to eat without getting messy. Maybe Mitt should have a crumpet. It might loosen him up.

Maybe Ann is a frugal housewife, and she uses all the muffin bottoms to make a lovely bread pudding for brunch on Sundays?

Baking pan that produces muffins that are almost all top, very little stump, perhaps a conical base?. Feasible?

Yes, yes, they are. Toasted crumpets with butter and honey are some of the messiest, best eating this side of a brilliantly cooked spare rib. You will get sticky and messy, and it will be worth it.
