Last week while we were eating lunch, a six-year-old told me “Mustard is the opposite of ketchup”. After I laughed and laughed, I realized how cogent a statement it really was. This kid should have a Twitter feed, I thought.
It seems it's an idea that some fans of Parks and Recreation took and ran with, though not with a six-year-old, but Tom Haverford, a character on the series played by Aziz Ansari. And refreshingly, TomHaverfoods.com it's not a Twitter site, but just a refreshable webpage that has nuggets of whacked out wisdom as it relates to food. Some choice ones:
Guacamole is…Mexican Mashed Potatoes, Gucci Mane, Or Guaca Guaca Flame
English Muffins are…Brit Bagels
Pork Chops are…Oink Steaks
The NBC show is one that I admit I've never watched. Apparently there is a context to the Haverisms on comestibles. Whatever it is, the site is poised to go viral. Like most people who've just discovered it, I spent twenty solid minutes repeatedly refreshing it to see what he's going to say next.
Will it be as big as that Chuck Norris thing a few years back? Maybe.
