Let Them Eat SPAM
When Only Slabs of Pink, Jellied Byproduct Will Do Barbara Demick -- Los Angeles Times SEOUL - Stroll into an expensive department store and walk straight past the $180 watermelon with a ribbon...
Okay, I watched Alton's Feasting on Asphalt last night. It was okay, but there was one thing that got me, we have Alton admitting that he stopped at a road side 'mom and pop' because he was 'hungry'. He comes out, with ......a pickled pigs foot. He looks at it, he sniffs it, he comments on it and then tastes it. The look on his face said it all........BLEEEECH. He sereptitiously (sp?) spit it in his napkin and deposited the remainder discretely in the trash can. He then acknowledged that he accomplished what he stopped for 'he was no longer hungry' alluding to the fact that the pigs foot put him right off eating.
After all the 'I hate Rachael Ray' threads mostly commisserating over her over the top, orgasmic faces and noises over food and that she never had a meal that didn't rate at least a 'yummo'. Here we have Alton basically horking over a trotter. Realism at it's best, and I think most would be more forgiving of RR if she owned up to the fact there are some things that she just doesn't like instead of faking it, making everyone wonder what else she fakes. -ginny
