Hummus Rodham Clinton And Other Oddities At The Fancy Food Show
The samples were beyond excellent, but in the end, what we found most notable about the Fancy Food Show was the glimpse it provided into the American pysche. Take the picture above: busts of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain carved by the good folks at Sabra Hummus. Are they not terrifying? After the jump...well, in the words of Liz Phair: "Check out America, you're looking at it babe."
The elections were a popular theme. These adorable creatures are from Moonstruck Chocolate.
Seriously, guys? Hummus Clinton is going to give us nightmares tonight. It's the red lips. It looks like Julia Child, if Julia Child were terrifying. Also, why is she even involved in this? She's not a candidate! We would, however, have enjoyed seeing Hummus Paul.
Hummus McCain is by far the best resemblance to the real thing.
Hummus Obama, on the other hand, doesn't look anything like his namesake.
More election goodies, this time from Byrd Cookie Company.
Could there be any less exciting of a concept than this one?
Things our blue-state ass did not know: that NASCAR makes food.
Number one: "Everything I am, I owe to pasta" is our new motto. Number two: if it's good enough for Sophia Loren, it's good enough for us. Number three: this will probably be the only time that Sophia Loren and NASCAR are visually referenced at the same time.
This is the most baffling press material we received all day. Is it in LOLCat? Is it a dirty joke? Either way, do not want.
