Slate recently pointed to an ice cubes recipe on Food.com and went: ‘It’s enough to restore one’s faith in Internet commenting.’ We totally agree. Our favourite out of the 450 or so mostly innocuously sarcastic comments: ‘I harvest my own free-range water, so the idea of putting it in a plastic tray and a commercially made electricity-wasting freezer disgusts me. I prefer nature’s method, waiting until the temperature outside drops below freezing.’
When I did the Master Cleanse diet a few years ago — the one where you consume nothing but lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper for ten days — I sat at work looking at pictures of food as if they were porn. Scanwiches would have gotten me hot and bothered like nothing else.
