Montezuma's Revenge

QdobaOrChipotle_WpCThat's what y'all get for eating at a fake-ass Mexican restaurant instead of eating at that little unassuming joint over by the laundromat.

OMG, GMO!

GMOs_WpCOh, the irony of life in our modern times: just as they're telling us that the BS they've been doing to our food can cause genetic mutations in our cells (READ: Cancer), they're creating food that is ALREADY genetically-modified.

Balanced Diet

EquilibriumStrip_WpCThe old boys offer an excellent countermand to the endless "news" reports of study results and "effective" new diet fads that contradict each other at every turn.

Losing Our Appetites

Foodie_WpCReally, how much longer can the tiresome trend of posting photos of food and drink on Facebook and Instagram continue?

We don't even like to go to restaurants that have food photos on their menus anymore!

Usually, we could care less what anyone is eating... and you notice no one is posting photos of their meals after they've made their final journey, are they now?

Funny how homogeneous our diet becomes when it's all been chewed and swallered....

Eye of the Beholder

DadBod_WpC"Body image". What a subjective concept!

Who the hell cares what anyone's body looks like?

Sure, everyone knows that obesity isn't a good thing. Neither is anorexia or bulimia.

But geesh, we come in all different shapes and sizes - our body types don't matter.

How we treat each other is all that matters.

FruitCocktail2_WpC"Truth in advertising" - a classic oxymoron.

But here we have a correctable problem!

We Need to Stop Meating Like This

TestTubeMeatA_WpCRemember "Space Food Sticks"? They were a popular confection several decades ago, marketed as a healthy snack similar to whatever it was the astronauts were eating once they cleared the stratosphere. Add a couple slices of "Wonder Bread" toast and an ice-cold glass of "Tang" and you had a complete, yet UNsatisfying, meal.

Today, meat produced in the laboratory is looming on the new foods horizon. Yum-yum! We'll have some for lunch with some of that plastic-infested bread from Subway and a few of those recently re-tooled "Twinkies" for dessert.

Sure, the notion of “fake food” has been around for a while. But is it viable? Is it safe?
