I have to admit, this gave me a good chuckle:

  1. I think Adam Richman would be honored to be described as a "John Belushi look-alike."

    1. Alex Beam is an irrelevant blowhard. People here just ignore him.

          And how original, just a couple of weeks after the Atlantic Monthly piece.Which he admits to having read.

            He really isn't a very good writer.....besides being stupid.

          Seriously LOVE MC Slim JB's response in the comments section of the editiorial. :-)

            He's the foodie version of the Tea Party!

          2. Irony, he has a job due to the foodie culture/fad.

              No, his job is just to write a column for the Boston Globe. He writes/complains about everything. He rarely writes about food.

                Me too, and I first ate it on my honeymoon in Montréal, well before there was such a concept as "foodie". Honestly.
