Cooking, eating, and appreciating good food is fine. There's nothing wrong with that. Blogs gushing about food, its flavors, an its presentation are fine as long as you don't try to share them with people who don't care, aka the general population and social media at large. Taking pictures of food is over the line. It ruins the experience for others.

Try as I might I can make no meaningful connection between food and porn. Thus,  I am forced to classify anyone using the term as 'hipster douchebag'.

NewWorldDan: Fine if you're about to eat something magnificient, but I was at Dairy Queen the other night and some girls in the next booth had to instagram their cheeseburger and fries before they would start eating.  Did I mention this was at Dairy Queen?


Were they of the Asian persuasion?

The author needs to get a dictionary. Words mean things and voyeur doesn't mean what he thinks it does.

I have two Fatty FatAss McFatPants porkers in my house-

How come it's appropriate enough for all these "wide loads"
in my town to make fun of my "skinny little ass", but shriek
and howl when I call them on their largesse?

SpdrJay: Well, the Romans had their vomitoriums, so I guess this is the technological answer.


What does taking pictures of food have to do with stadium design??

Wikipedia: "A vomitorium is a passage situated below or behind a tier of seats in an amphitheatre or a stadium, through which big crowds can exit rapidly at the end of a performance. They can also be pathways for actors to enter and leave stage."

libranoelrose: Sushi is food art


Sushi is a wasabe delivery device.  Its utility is determined by the fact that it can hold an exactly perfect amount of freakishly tasty yet excruciatingly painful oriental horseradish paste.  Just enough to make you gasp, wheeze, and cry like a orphan sent to bed without dinner, but not enough to make you pass out on the floor.  Sushi is merely the substrate, the Utah and Dover beaches from which the volatile aromatic chemicals launch their assault upon your fearfully quivering nasal passages and sinus cavities.  A cracker would work as well, but there's tradition involved in every form of ritual self-torture, and sushi is no different.

I agree.  I've had sushi at several different places and always found it just awful on it's own.  And before you say, "Well, you've never had good sushi."  Let me stop you.  I have had 'good' sushi, and several different types, with people who love that shiat and I still found it awful.  The ONLY thing that saves it is the wasabi.  That's the only thing that makes it palatable for me.

pork belly in a mushroom broth, beluga lentils, flax seed and served with a poached eggs.

Nothing I can fap to.


I'm OK with the poached eggs but I definitely don't like flaccid...

"voyeurs now drool over pictures of pork belly and bacon"

I submit that the pork fetish is testimony to the influence - conscious and unconscious - of Jews as tastemakers and trendsetters. Even non-Jews subtly regard the fatty flesh of the swine, associated as it is with Germanic brutishness and redneck barbarity, as a totem of the Unclean - and hence, a sinful indulgence, to be embraced only with much ostentation and no little irony.

Well, you've never had good sushi.


I have had the pleasure of working in a few fine sushi joints in my time.  I was the gaijin waiter.  I am NOT a big fan of raw fish.  i farking hated fish in most forms as a kid.  My tastes evolved.  I still am not a big fan of nigiri (raw fish on rice with wasabi) but fry up some softshell crab and Maki that biatch with some Jap Mayo and flying fish row.  NOM!

I don't mind seeing pictures of food my friends cooked.  At all.  Even friends who don't cook particularly well.  That's something they made, and it's cool to see that.

Pictures of food from restaurants?  Yeah.  Cut that shiat out.

Yeah, guys.  I don't like it.  That's about all I was trying to say.  Just agreeing with the guy that says the best part of sushi was wasabi.  I really like wasabi, don't like sushi.

And no, you can't get good sushi in Kansas.  That's why I've tried it in several different places and states and found that I still didn't like it.  It just seems like people that really like sushi treat it as some kind of religion and laugh and scorn the heretics that don't.  Again, part of that bullshiat pretension we could all do without.
