Marc Summers (from my afterschool favorite, Double Dare) is hosting Unwrapped on the Food Network. He goes inside the food factories and shows us the production of junk food is grosser than we imagined. Last night he covered candy corn and the history of cheez (Velveeta, Cheez Whiz, Easy Cheese, Cheetos, etc.). I thought that maybe I should get a big patch of dirt and grow broccoli and soy beans. That would take the guilt away. And if you're not going to make decisions based on guilt, really, what's the point of making any choices at all? I think Marc should do a show on veggieburgers. Let everyone share the guilt of mass produced food. I'll bet the big vat of mealy veggie stuff looks disgusting. I tried a veggieburger two weeks ago -- tasted like a Chinette paper platter.

You don't know how happy I am that you reminded me of *my* afterschool favorite, Double Dare. Man, I wanted to be one of those kids, plowing into whipped cream. I haven't thought of that in years.

You mean you're not offended that I want vegetarians to feel food guilt too? God, what do I have to do to spread food guilt to others? Or do I just have ridiculous food "issues"?

You need to watch "I Love the 80s". You won't move off the couch for hours. If they released it on DVD, I'd buy it and watch it all day next time I'm home sick.

Oh, believe me, if anyone has food issues, it's me. I'm not offended, my friend -- I'm t-h-r-i-l-l-e-d. Away with genetically enhanced foods! Away with chemicals! Away with preservatives! Be gone, non-edible foods disguised as edible! I should watch that show. I've been waiting to be inspired to have my own vegetable garden, too.

I've been eating tunafish sandwiches everyday for the last 2 weeks. I'm sure there is probably something harmful about tunafish too, but I just don't care anymore. Stop bombarding me with food guilt! Give me a pill three times a day so I won't be hungry and I don't have to figure out what I want to eat. It won't cause cancer, diabetes, heart disease or anything else that's going to kill me by age 55. Sure it'll taste like crap, but so does everything else that I'm told is good for me.

Ok, I definitely have food "issues".
