I do not proclaim to be an expert on food, but I can tell you there are defintely some yucky foods you do not want to eat. Some people really have no concept of taste, and presentation with food. They think they do. That is the problem. They think they do.
Have you ever been to someones house and been asked to stay for dinner? As the international leader of the Giraffe Liberation Front, it happens to me all the time. Some times I get served good food, and some times I get served yucky food.
By the way I use the term ‘Yucky’ to describe ‘Bad or gross’ things. When food it ‘yucky’ it is definitely gross. Now that we have that cleared up, let’s ponder the question: “What do you do when someone tries to serve you yucky food?”
For example, you go to someones house, and they come out of
the kitchen with a big smile on their face and plop down a tray or dish of one of these foods I have pictured here. What is the proper response? Well I can offer some advice on this. For one, begging off with politeness does
not work. It only insults the host. Saying you are suddenly feeling ill, does not work very well either, and can even be a deeper insult.
So what do I recommend? Brace yourself for this one: SCREAM! Yes, scream loudly! Throw your hands up in the air, and scream. Pee your pants noticably and then start moaning, and rummaging through their garbage can. If you can, knock over the table, and slam into a few walls.
They will suddenly have their attention drawn from the food, and assume you are mentally unstable, and request that you leave. They will not draw any connection to the food being yucky, and you will not have embarrassed them. Works every time.
So, keep that in mind the next time someone serves you yucky food. Good luck!
