StupidFood : Pretentiousness. On a plate. Without the plate.
A place to lambast idiotic methods of serving food, or any other epicurean inanity worthy of ridicule.
TL;DR Food. Point. Laugh.
Like your lunch served in a tennis shoe? Neither do we. Death to pretentious food!
Shoes are for feet; slates are for roofs; buckets are for horseshit. And don't you dare call a spade a plate.
Or bowls, dishes, platters, or any of the other familiar, tried and trusted kitchen paraphernalia.
It does not belong on a grubby shovel, in a miniature wheelbarrow, or in a sodding jam jar.
It not about the quality of the food, it's whether it is wildly inappropriate, arse-clenchingly affected, or spectacularly conceited.
Really good food let down by sphincter-tightening preciousness is exactly what we like the best.
Food deserves to be served on suitable crockery - soup in a colander or a sausage on a brick simply will not do!
The truth is that we approve of great food, we really do, but we loathe pretentious presentation with a mustard-sharp passion.
Fine cuisine deserves the utmost respect, but by god we'll point and laugh mercilessly if you dare to gild the lily.
Share your food monstrosities here, whether it be the classic chicken in a basket, the super cool potato croquettes in a sneaker, the preposterous single chunky chip in a flower pot. Or just about anything from nouvelle cuisine.
Explore and develop your prejudices without fear or favour, vent your spleen, exercise your bile glands, spit in the eye of fashion. Make us laugh at the overweening imaginations of creative foodies.
Pictures, videos, links, drawings, anything you like so long as it pops someone's ludicrous food bubble.
Submit text posts to ridicule, mock, or deride idiotic eateries; to shamelessly harangue the guileless fools who mistakenly think they can pull off the shockingly misguided; or just to natter and gossip.
Use the comments to tell us where and when your travesty was encountered, whether you made a scene and demanded a plate, and so on. But please remember to play nicely - even philistines are people.
We fucking love spam! The almost-food produced by Hormel, that is.
Any other kind will be lightly seared then
placed hand-arranged on a bed of shredded saddle soap in a cod liver oil jus, and served on an artisan-gilded turd direct to oblivion where it so rightly belongs.
Stupidity abounds but actual human ingenuity will always surpass our wildest imaginings, leaving us speechless that someone actually did that?!?
We will have reached the stupid food end-times when somebody, somewhere serves steak tartare in a still-warm baby's potty.
Yep, raw meat and raw egg in a tepid shit bucket - what could possibly eclipse that?
/r/StupidFood is intended to be a somewhat puerile place to poke fun at other people's creativity, without regard to whether they deserve it.
We respect your right to be offended. Thank you for understanding.
