Once in a while I see a car with a KS license plate with the word “foodie” on it. It reminds me of another self-important branch of the “social media” – people who are obsessed with name-dropping, over-hyping restaurants and overusing the word “chef“. Today I was listening to Charles Ferruzza on Walt Bodine show discuss food critics and foodies. As an aside, I think they can record Walt’s occasional quips and just push the right buttons at the right time. Charles clarified his position in his reply to my comment (which I immediately printed out and framed):
I don’t necessarily dislike them (foodies), I just don’t want to BE one. (Not that they would want me, anyway — my taste is far too vulgar).
I have to agree – I just like to eat, I don’t really care what the name of the chef is, or is it even a real chef and not some guy with a grill or a skillet. I was going to do a whole write-up on why I don’t really care for foodies but my feelings were expressed 0n the 21st second of the following clip.
