As if the Food Network wasn't enough of a joke already! - Page 4

post #91 of 113

She learned how to apply her Semi-Homemade® philosophy and savvy shortcuts toward gourmet recipes so that anyone could create and savor delicious dishes at home in less time and at a fraction of the cost. 

 

There are multiple untruths there. First, how many recipes do you think she learned in less than two days in culinary school? Second, we've all discussed how many of her techniques and recipes are neither faster nor cheaper than cooking with fresh ingredients.

 

You can't read that statement and think that FN is being completely honest and forthcoming. If you do, I've got some ocean front property you might be interested in.

Y'know, I once worked with this young girl, who was, uh... well, very gung ho about everything.  A few months after a Provincial Election she comes into work  madder than a hornet, complaining about this politician and that, and this election promise and that.  I laughed and asked her:

"Do you still believe in Santa Clause?"

"No"

"Easter bunny or the Tooth Fairy?"
"No".

"Then why on earth would you believe a politician, especially before an election?"

 

I gave up on TV about 15 years ago, because the majority of the cra* broadcasted was B.S.

 

Politics is NOT about truth, what's right, or what's good.  It's about power:  Who has it,  and who'll do anything for just a bit of it.

 

T.V. is all about ratings.  Nothing at all to do about truth, what's right, or what's good.

 

And now I'd better go into hiding, becasue sure as shooting, Fox TV will hunt me down as a rabid Canuck, responsible for the evils of the world.....

Classic.


Hahahaha. That's brilliant.

 

Terrible, terrible recipe too.

That's some pretty technical stuff from Ms. Dean. Any less than average house wife would think to maybe even add a bit of salt and pepper to the pot (or saucepan).

Flatly reject the first statement. Completely agree with the second statement.

 

If I was offered a job on Food Network for 50K an episode or 100+K every time I put my smiling face in front of a camera - I would do it in a heartbeat.

 

The Food Network/Food Channel/Et al.. They inspire people to cook. In some cases, they inspire people to cook badly - but they get people somewhere near a stove and a pan. That's a win.

Oh, lawd.  Is this a quiz?  Get Paula Deen to the batphone.  Maybe she can help us with the math and measurements.  Has anyone seen "the pot"?  Butter makes everything better, y'all.  tongue.gif

  Hi Leianne,

 

    Each one of these questions was directed to mommamae's remarks, nobody else.  Within that post I had quoted the material, from mommamae, that provoked my questions.

This is just really funny. NO cracks at the Food Network. It does however, go right along with the theme.

Well said!

 

post #107 of 113

oh my I did as you said...way too funny, you should go read what I just wrote.  I don't have to make this to know how the f it's going to turn out.  My distaste for certain canned vegetables is not limited to peas (don't ever buy canned asparagus), and folks say that they can't cook!  Umm, what did you cook? Heating up a can of vegetables, I'm sorry here Paula you know I love you, does not constitute cooking anything.  Maybe next we'll learn how to cook microwave popcorn!

Classic.

Maybe you should smoke the pot, then make the peas.  It would only improve on their already poor quality and taste. Oh and use the microwave...well that would just confuse everyone.lol

Well just because she has a show doesn't mean anyone watches it!  Oprah has a whole network that no one watches..still doesn't make it good.
