    Avacado taste like a banana gone wrong.... I bet you could mash an avacado, add honey and banana extract and use as a banana substitute... except it would be puke green and I don't think I could stomach that...

    Marshmallows (except Lucky Charms and Count Chocula marshmallows)

    Raw squid (like chewing an art-gum eraser)

    Sweet potatoes (sickly sweet mealy yuck)

    Lamb (I don't care if it's a baby animal, it's just horrid - except in gyro meat)

    Curious - as a guy who was Jonesing for pizza after getting a no-wheat order from my doctor (celiac - the core of gluten free diet) I saw the arrival of cauliflower crust as reason for a parade!
    Now, if you don't HAVE to eat 'em, I understand.
    In my case, though, I'm crazy grateful for it.

    Mrs Deeve does a good job of dressing it up w/ olives, artichokes, salami, cheese mix, and it goes onto a 425f pizza steel (stone broke after 20 yrs of faithful service) and makes me very happy. :D
    YMMV

    Peace - Deeve

    Cook it from frozen. Makes for delicious, snot-free okra and tomatoes--on regular rotation around here. I only use fresh okra in gumbo, and still use frozen if I have it on hand.

    Only a Visigoth would put sauce on Texas brisket.

    Maybe it's a California thing, but all of my colleagues love tri-tip and brisket is meh

    Chick-fil-a, Dunkin Donuts and blue cheese dressing. None of these should even exist.

    I have always wondered, what exactly is the difference between a visigoth and just a regular, run of the mill goth?

    Absolutely anything at chipotle. Hate it. This restaurant exists for people who d…agh? I can’t even finish that sentence. I don’t know why it exists. There’s a real Mexican joint within five miles or less of every chipootle I’ve ever been around. You enjoy that soggy meat mess of a Mexican-style wrap. I’m gonna go get a real burrito. No surly servers at my go-to joint either.

    1. Chick-fil-a -- absolutely agree (meh)
    2. Dunkin Donuts -- haven't tried them enough to have an opinion
    3. Oh, man, gotta try the Apple Pecan salad at Wendy's. The blue cheese is awesome! (Note: it's not blue cheese dressing; it's a pomegranate vinaigrette over blue cheese)

    The run of the mill goth had a split between visigoths and ostrogoth. Visigoth went west and ostrogoths went East... ostrogoth>Austria...

    Visigoth were rulling Spain after defeating the roman legions and before the arab invasion. In Spain we call them goths or visigoths indistintely. So, we, the Spaniards are supposed to be visigoth descendants (amongst many others) so:

    When I was in college, my best friend and I saw an ad for Stouffer's French Bread Pizzas, so we bought a box for after the gig we were playing that weekend.

    The whole gig, all we were talking about was getting back to his place and eating those pizzas.

    Finished the gig, got back to his place around 3:30 and popped those suckers in the oven - it seemed like it took about 5 hours to bake, and we were just dying to chow down.

    Finally, the timer dinged, and out they came - we each took a few bites and decided that they really weren't very good at all, altho we still ate them.

    Biggest food letdown of my life.

    I can't believe they still make them:

    We went with out 5 Guys here forever, after finally getting several of them close enough to try, I am confident that I can go forever without ever having their food again.

    Definitely Chick-fil-A. Everyone I know will wait in line forever for their meh, bland chicken. But, to me, that means the line’s not as long at Popeye’s.

    Ive tried sushi a couple of times now. Never made it past one bite.
