The ugly underbelly of food blogs

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

We all love looking at pictures of beautiful food but some people post things which should never see the light of the internet. This Tumbler is laugh out loud funny. The food looks awful. The tags are pure genius.

The one with the scrambled eggs and gravy described as liposuction is cracking me up.

This looks like Falu korv, it is horribly cheep sausage made and sold here in sweden. People bake it, slice and fry it, cover it with katsup and salsa, its hidious. I read the ingreadients lite on a popular brand here one time and it said it contained a whopping 30 percent meat. I have no clue what e[se was in it as I stopped reading right there.

Toad roadkill roast, I suppose?

Have you ever heard your own voice on a recording and thought "That's not what I sound like" ?  Sometimes I wonder what my food pictures look like to other people.

Pretty sure anything can be made to look appetizing given the correct lighting.  :talk:

I'm not sure. After going through that blog, I think there might be no way to shoot biscuits and gravy that would look appetizing, The lack of contrast, the white on white. The color of the sausage doesn't come through. That would be a tough photo shoot and there were plenty of bad examples of it on the blog.

 

On the other hand, there were things I recognized and that I eat that I know you can't shoot well either. Like the fried chicken feet that always look like an alien vivisectionist project. Some of the halloween projects like the hot dog "fingers" are meant to be gross. And it would take a food stylist to rescue sloppy joes.

My top laughers. They're actually well executed for what they are, they just struck my funny bone.

Skyline chili is what Cincinnati is known for... That's why they call it cincy-nasty.

@beastmasterflex - well deserved. I admit that during my student days, I ate some nasty industrial gloop, but those "spaghetti" really are serious business.

 

@phatch - The pizza and the nativity scene are some of my favourites, too. I would add the crab-a-pillar:

 

 

In general, the site seems to have stuff intended to be bizarre, misunderstood stuff that simply doesn't present well (e.g. I'd consider some of the aspics on the plate perfectly normal - "Tellersülze" around here), and then the really abysmal gloop like those spaghetti.

WOW... the foods of my dreams!
 

Well, nightmares, actually. :eek:

 

The captions, though, are genius, :thumb:

Yeah, on a trip from Chicago to Knoxville, we went out of our way  to go into downtown Cincinnati to sample the famed "chili five ways" at the Skyline Restaurant, which we understood to be the temple of that Cincy staple.

 

Poorest chili I've ever eaten.  Overcooked, limp spaghetti; watery, tasteless chili; gluey, Velveeta-esq grated cheese; and I don't even remember a couple of the other traditional ingredients. And, the serving was pretty small. ;)

 

On a positive note, though, the raw chopped onions weren't bad.  :lol:

 

That was fifteen or so years ago. Haven't been back since.
