Is Chowhound the single most humorless site on the web or am I missing something? This place sometimes seems SOOOOOOO serious. I know that some of my attempts at humor are immediately pulled off the boards. God forbid that anyone on Chowhound should feel slighted. Whew! I'm glad that I got that off my chest. Now, back to the discussion of where you can find the freshest tomatos in Vegas.

  1. Humor? Is that served with a white or a red?

      1. Sharing information about delicious food is serious business. The fun part is in the eating, which doesn't take place on the board.

          Nice to see y'all have so much in your mouth(s) there's no room to put your tongue in your cheek!

            Sometimes there's a lot of tongue, but only when it's cooked properly. There's room for cheek and other parts too, if they're delicious.

        2. Think we're bad here? Check out the big food board (start's with 'ego').
          Now they really take themselves seriously!

            Have to disagree. The members of the UK board of that site (assuming I've guessed correctly which one) are able to have fun; disagree with each other very, very directly and generally enjoy the whole food thing as a friendly community with what seems to be minimal moderating. I may have to think about transferring my affections at some point.

          2. jes' sometimes, we gets to sneak a little humor on these here boards. i swar!
