So there’s this husband and wife duo that run … I think it’s four internet comics now. I don’t really follow the two run primarily by Drew, but these two are generally hilarious, and sadly often a little too crude for my taste. Nevertheless, I sense a bit of genius copying from genius:
“Mmmmmm” from Married To The Sea
“Mmm That’s Some Breakfast” from Natalie Dee
Incidentally, both of these remind me of an interesting “game” in Sally Fallon’s epic Nourishing Traditions, called “Know Your Ingredients.” Dispersed throughout the text are 48 lists of industrial processed food ingredients. At the end of the book, an appendix lists the brand names of the foods. See if you can guess the following (picked at random):
Corn syrup, enriched flour (nicain, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, sugar, water, partially hydrogenated vegetable and/or animal shortening (contains one or more of: canola oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil, soybean oil, beef fat), eggs, skim milk, contains 2% or less of: whey, modifed food starch, salt, leavening (baking soda, monocalcium phosphate, sodium acid pyrophosphate), mono- and di-glycerides, lecithin, sodium stearoyl lactylate, and artificial flavors (red 40 and yellow 5), sorbic acid (to retard spoilage).
Water, mushrooms, modified food starch, vegetable oil (corn, cottonseed, or partially hydrogenated soybean oil), wheat flour, sugar, salt, whey protein concentrate, potassium chloride, spice extracts, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, maltodextrin, dehydrated garlic, mushroo powder, and calcium lactate.
Soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, water, pickle relish, vinegar, tomato paste, salt, dehydrated egg yolk, algin derivative and xantham gum (for consistency), mustard flour, natural flavors, dehydrated onion, spice, calcium disodium EDTA (to preserve freshness).
Are you ready? The second, I think was probably too easy, given that its second ingredient was actually mushrooms. It is, of course, Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup (99% Fat Free, 1/3 less salt, low cholesterol, 60 calories, no MSG). The first is … drumroll please … Hostess Twinkies. And the last item, number 3 in the book, is Wish Bone Thousand Island Dressing. Yum-O, as a certain tv food personality would say.
