A few of you may read an article in the Portland Mercury today called, “In His Own Words – A Foodie Speaks”. It is part of their annual food issue.
For those around here that seem to have no sense of humor, please keep in mind this is strictly tongue-in-cheek. I’ve done my best to insult everyone equally – including myself. In spite of what people may think, no single person was specifically targeted. Sometimes we all need to lighten up a bit.
We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming. Later today, a review, and a news story.
That was great! Well done – I’m not a foodie so I sort of laugh at y’all now and then (Someone is writing in right now to refute that he doesn’t eat Wheaties – and how can you spread such lies!!)- now I hope the foodies can laugh at themselves.

-s: MSG wasn’t even in my mind when I wrote this stuff. Actually, it was one of those late nights at the computer, I had just gone to bed at 4, and realized I had promised to get this to the Merc that morning. Had to get up and write it all blurry eyed. It’s a wonder it makes any sense at all. I’m sure he’ll get a laugh out of it too.
OMG Food Dude, loves it!!!!! Outstanding from start to finish.
Brilliant, and probably more true than some would like to admit. I do hope that MSG has no incriminating pictures of you!
That was hillarious. Hopefully no one takes the trash can advice to heart.
To riff on Frank Bruni when he interviews chefs….
“Dead Foodie Walking! You’re sentenced for putting Humbolt Fog on a Ritz and it’s your last night. What’s your last meal?”

Actually Dave, I’ve heard a ton of different theories about puttanesca. I’m not sure anyone actually knows for sure. This is the one that worked best for me ;)

All bloggers are low hanging fruit, and the best ones do not take themselves so seriously that they constantly admire the profile of their own shadows. Nice to see your snarky side, FD.

I have to quibble with:
The famous dish “puttanesca” was supposedly invented from restaurant leftovers to trade with whores for their services.
Actually, it was invented by the whores so that they could grab a quick meal between, er, clients.
Hey, I like Taco Bell nachos – especially the flour tortilla chips. I wish someone would bag those and sell them.
Flour Nacho Doritos would be just about perfect. Blazin’ Buffalo is really good too.
