Food, What Should Be The Real Name

So it's Superbowl Sunday and we have a small gathering at our house.

Friends know my food sensiblilities and make things I might like. Pea soup for example. Gets me thinking about how we name foods. Pea soup sure sounds healthy. Peas, carrots, onions. Reality is, pea soup nowadays is very, very high in salt, high in saturated fat with ham, sausage etc.

A better name might be salt soup. Or saturated fatty meat soup. Or why not get to the bottom of it and call it high blood pressure soup, or atherosclerotic soup. Or this shit leads to early death soup.

Thinking about it, instead of Apple Pie, with all it's sugar and refined flour, we could rename it Diabetes Pie.

I like how we have these names for foods that conjure up family, togetherness, and wholesomeness, but really is nothing more than an appetizing word to get you to eat shit. That's really the fucken truth. Let's get fucken real and be honest about it.
