Ahhh! The Vulgar Chef hits another one out of the park. He really had me at "The Horse Mouth" guy who chomps his food, mouth wide-open, for the world to see everything he will eventually swallow into his belly. This post reminded me of Iowa. Let me tell you about Iowa. Brad Pitt and I were road tripping from Missouri to Wisconsin about five years ago and we had to make a Pitt Stop for lunch. We stopped at the only place anyone can find everywhere in the world: McDonalds. Needing a break from the confines of our car, we decided to dine inside the fancy establishment. And boy did we get more than we could have ever bargained for .... Everyone eating at that McDonalds in that small town in Iowa on that particular day was chewing with their mouth open. Every. Single. Person. And not just chewing with mouth open. Chewing with mouth WIDE open. Let me tell you something.... I watched a teenage girl put a couple french fries in her mouth, begin to chew and A FRY FELL OUT OF HER MOUTH and onto the table. I nearly fell out of my chair. Neither Brad Pitt or I had ever witnessed such atrocity. Thanks to this experience, Iowa has taken on new meaning in our relationship. It is no longer a state of the union. It is a state of being. And we call it when we see it, to warn the other person .... "Straight ahead, my 12 o'clock, got a family from Iowa enjoying their dinner." Yuck. I can't stand Iowa.
