    Does that count as food?

    Oh no, here I go again . . .
    I actually watched that episode of Chopped, and, while disgusted, held my lunch.
    Tonight I turned on my TV and landed on a Piers Morgan, interviewing a guy named Joel Osteen and his Barbie wife. I barfed.
    I've seen Morgan before; kind of sad. But next to this clown Osteen, he looked like a journalistic giant.
    Apparently, many people actually embrace this kind of insanity.
    Kind of chicken-in-the-can religion.

    Hell, last I checked a can of spam costs more than a cheap steak.

    That chicken is peculiar. Looks like something one of my grandmas would have pulled, that lady would can anything. Some kind of weird depression era fear of starvation I guess.

    My mother used to show signs of that (though she never fed me Spam. But then she never took me to Hawaii either . .).
    My comment was just a simple, and not particularly well-reasoned, reminder that there are a lot of people who can't afford fancy knives, or a meal in a restaurant. As their numbers grow, it will be increasingly difficult for those of you who make knives, or prepare food, to make a living doing what you love.
