The latest Style Weekly food section features a sort of best and worst of 2010 (termed, “protagonists and antagonists”) by Jack Lauterback (aka Jack Goes Forth, Shockoe Bottom’s “blogging bartender”).
Foodies are listed among the antagonists:
“Foodies. Big pretentious wads of vascularized ass fat. I’m keeping them around because we need a stuffy, high-minded, self-important group of fucknuts to die violently when the Russians attack in Act IV.”
I’ve got my take on the trendy insult, but I’d rather hear from you. Is this characterization warranted? Is it informed? Charming? How many points does Style gain or lose with you?
For the past several weeks, Richmond.com’s Karri Peifer has been running an interview series wherein “foodies” analyze the loaded term and what makes food such a keen interest. I think the subjects of that series provide a whole lot more incite into the topic of foodies, love them/us or hate them/us.
