This week, one of my workplace newsletters had a recipe for ‘Green Eggs and Ham’, after the Dr. Seuss story, and my first thought was “We don’t eat green meat for a reason, y’all.”  As far as imaginary food goes, the idea of emerald-hued eggs is pretty high on the list of stuff I don’t have any interest in, but there’s also the legendary Crunchy Frog chocolates (it’s disgusting), Fizzy Lifting Drinks (it’s stolen, good day sir!) or Soylent Green (IT’S PEOPLLLLE!), leading to today’s gastronomical query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will try a lotta weird things, but “gagh”, live Klingon serpent worms, are absolutely never gonna happen, asking: What imaginary food would you NEVER, EVER be willing to try?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I have to agree and go with Green Eggs and Ham. I would not, could not anywhere.

    (Snake surprise is on my list too!)
