Food Porn!!

Food Porn 1

From time to time, my explorations on the Internet yield serendipitous finds of interesting, not to mention bizarre, images that tickle my fancy for one reason or another and, like many other people, I squirrel them away and then (quite often) forget about them. The other day, I was re-organizing my hard-drive directories and I came across one such cache of oddities. It was a pretty eclectic mix (cartoons, amusing pictures of cats, etc.) but there were a surprising number that seemed to share a common theme of sorts. Perhaps the name ‘food porn’ is not the best way to describe that theme (indeed, the popular term generally means something else entirely), but I really couldn’t think of anything better.

By the way, I have had all the pictures in question for so long now that I couldn’t begin to recall where they came from so, if it happens that anything I reproduce here is subject to any particular restrictive copyright, please let me know. For the rest of you… those who are not too delicate to continue… I hope my gleanings will provide you all with a quick giggle or two…

This is probably the happiest tomato I have ever seen…

Food Porn 3

I saw a whole display of squash just like these while shopping yesterday. I looked through the whole lot in hoping to find one with as nice butt as this one but… not a shapely crack to be seen!

Food Porn 4

I never thought I would develop ‘carrot-envy’.

Food Porn 5

Someone could definitely use a trim…

Food Porn 6

Do you think this chili is hot?

Food Porn 7

A lemon with a really big nose… isn’t that what it reminds *you*  of?

Food Porn 8

Okay, come on, now… These have to be genetically engineered, or the result of careful pruning or something. They couldn’t just randomly grow like this… could they??

And… before we leave the plant Kingdom, let’s get really X-rated!

So that’s what they mean by ‘Happy as a Clam!’

Apparently, ‘Animal Crackers’ come in an adult variety as well…

I give up. Who would even conceive of such a picture, much less actually shoot it?

Stop playing with your food!

‘Nuff said…

And this… is my favorite. It looks like a couple of guys in the waiting room of a VD clinic doesn’t it? I don’t know who thought of making these but barbecue season is almost upon us and I want one!!

Anyway… I felt lazy today; hence the frivolity of this post. If you have better pictures I’d love to see them but (PLEASE) no more carrots with erections, okay?

  1. Oh my gosh! I have just laughed myself into a small asthma fit. These are hysterical. My friends have often chided me for laughing at the unique carrots I regularly find in the 25 pound bags I buy for my horse, but these…these are too darn funny. Thanks for the laugh! I found Sybaritica while searching for Chinese chicken stock. It is simmering as i type. I enjoy your blog very much and am interested in learning Chinese writing as it pertains to menus. Count me in for the class! 🙂
