Foodie Craze: Pomposity on a Plate
This has been going around via one of my industry organizations, it's not a very long read and it's pretty funny.
I recently attended a dinner party thrown by a friend of mine who fancies herself a gourmet chef. She’d prepared a lavish dinner for six and I was the first one to finish eating because everybody else just couldn’t stop jabbering about how splendid it all was. While my food was experiencing the digestive process, theirs was experiencing the congealing process.
When each dish appeared, our host would explain what it was: “This is a pan fried, minced Sicilian inbred butterfly ravioli, infused with a reduction sauce of strained and pounded Nigerian roast garlic pod, exfoliated in Albanian ginger grass, marinated for three hours in a deluded joie de pomegranate cream sauce, spiced with a soupcon of fennel de mer and served in a tower on a bed of enhanced, devolved, ersatz rice-spinach.”

A while ago I was having dinner in a white tablecloth restaurant and my dinner companion went on and on for maybe 20 minutes about the gluten structure of the rolls.
They really were amazing, I have to say.
Oh, and then he requested a coffee filter and a wine glass so he could decant his after dinner port. He only did that because he's an ass. I wanted to hit him with one of the delicious rolls.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
