Worst food writing ever?

This, from a review of a new hot dog joint, by a critic named Graham Duncan, in Toronto's NOW magazine:

"This salad tasted so earthy, fresh and delicious that it was like performing cunnilingus on Alice Waters's vegetable patch."

  1. OMG ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww, that's completely disgusting -- not just from a Puritanical POV, which doesn't bother me so much, as just how revolting that sounds. I can assure you I'd never be able to go to the restaurant in question and order this salad after hearing that remark.

    1. hahahahahhahahahahahahhahaha

      sorry, I actually found it quite amusing!

      2. Hahah, I would definitely be shocked reading that but at least it still makes sense! Like clim, I'm more so amused than disturbed!


        1. verbal acuity is a gift. I thought it was pretty funny, shocking, but funny!

          1. I'm not a prude, but, Sweet Jesus, that's inexcusable.
