Pets and kids are one thing, last night’s dinner is quite another.
Food channels are extremely popular for would-be chefs or folks simply bored with what they’ve been eating. Unlike skilled food preparers, most cooks come up with their own recipes, then seek to become known as skilled by pimping their “edible” concoctions on social media, mainly on Facebook.
It’s not that difficult to be offended by the junk that’s posted on Facebook, all the way from religious bigots who tell you you’re going to hell if you don’t follow Bible teachings to photos of last night’s dinner, sans, praise God, the ingredients and directions.
What these posters don’t realize is professional photos of food are artfully done to make a glob of food look appetizing.
It’s been like a wildfire: One person posts pictures of their version of a spaghetti meal and the next day, there are a half-dozen pictures of pasta in unimaginable forms.
Food on Facebook = dry heaves. Please stop.
