Be at least two.


What? Henry can't do this one?

Seriously, though - as a supertaster, I think it would be really cool to do this with me and somebody with a regular tongue. Maybe even a supersmeller, which I am not, for maximum contrast. (And I have quite a few foods I dislike, but there are also some pretty weird foods I like. Somebody needs to do this task with me.

Lincoln and CM, this task seems to lend itself well to transcontinental praxis. Would you like to level zero it together? We could each pick something we alone fail to yummy, and try to help the others yummy their choices while trying to yummy our own.

That's a brilliant point!
May I yummy, too?
I'm only half an era in SF0 years, but I'm more than two in people years.
Oh, and I'll eat anything that won't kill me or in otherwords: ants yes, pufferfish no.

I'm ready. The first difficult part is to find things that one of us does not find yummy, that the others do.

I do not yummy pickles. Or wasabi. Or horseradish. Or ants.

Yes, do let's get transcontinental! The more yummers the better.
posted by Jellybean of Thark on October 8th, 2008 1:43 PM

I totally yummy pickles, wasabi, and horseradish. I find that ants have a subtle nutty thing going on.

Those bowl meals you can get at a lot of fast-food places, chicken feet, and that wack ass Domino's cookie pizza are at the top of the list of things I definitely do not yummy.

I think we've got a good start. Eating a slice of that cookie pizza was so unpleasant it made me angry. Because a friend had bought it for us, and we were eating it in their house, I fought the urge to throw it against the wall.

Tooser, Lefthandered Snail? How about you guys?

I do not yummy pickles. Horseradish and wasabi, in moderation, I do yummy. I have not tried the wack ass Domino's cookie pizza, but it sounds tasty.

Surprisingly enough (and probably distinctly from all of LA0) I do not yummy burritos.

That's a good one Peter, burritos is something we'll all likely yummy. I think we found yours.

I do not yummy horseradish but I do yummy wasabi and I yummyyummy pickles. I've never had ants on this continent, just Australian green ants which I very yummy. I find burritos offensive on principle (I find wheat tortillas dubious) but I will eat them if I'm hungry enough. I yummy chicken feet a ton. I don't yummy bowl meals (unless we're talking the ones inside the food courts at the bigger Ranch and Galleria markets). I have had good pizza cookie and bad pizza cookie. I suspect that i would not yummy the one from Domino's because I tend not to yummy things from Domino's.
When do we eat?

Hey, Lincoln, I've got an odd question.

As a teetotaler, would you dine on food that would have some alcohol in it? Beer-battered shrimp for instance.

I might give that particular one a shot, but who doesn't yummy shrimp?

posted by lefthandedsnail on October 9th, 2008 1:41 PM

Also a tea-totaler, I eat things where the alcohol is cooked off (beer batter shrimp and all those wonderful flavours at Scoops).
C'mon Babe! You know you wanna eat with us!

I'd love to task with you, but the problem is I do yummy almost everything. Only thing coming to my mind right now that I do not yummy is beetroot. And I remember that I once had indian pickels that were absolutly disgusting. The rest of food I yummy.

I totally yummy beets. There's a recipe that my pop uses... I'll see if I can nab it off of him.

Sorry. I forgot one: I passionately yummy coffee. I've eaten coffee ice cream for so long I don't remember starting and moved on to drinking it when I was 15 (I always fear that it stunted my growth). Do any of you not yummy coffee? It would be really facinating for me to hear about.

I have never tasted coffee, but certainly do not yummy the smell.

I forgot about our Try-to-yummy contest. I still wanna do it. Who wants to play?

The first step is everybody that wants to play has to write down things that they do not yummy. When each player has found one item that they do not yummy that everybody else does, we have a that player's item.

I do not yummy pickles. Or wasabi. Or horseradish. Or ants. Or (the smell of) coffee.

Any not-meat that is prepared as a meat substitute. To clarify: I enjoy tofu if prepared well. But as soon as you give me something called tofurkey, I lose my membership in the Clean Plate Club. Things like fauxrizo, soysauges, and notbacon I simply cannot yummy.

Jeez, isn't the comments page for this task long enough already? Remember, only five people can collaborate on this one. Maybe people should split into teams or something.

We need to find a number of people who do not yummy the same things in a group, where each member of the group has one member that yummies what everybody else does not. This will force the groups to be small. I've seen a few pickles and really not much else common in this list.

Hey maybe another way to do this is to find five people and go around the list and trade in order. For example C.M. really yummies wasabi, I do not, therefore I try C.M.'s wasabi, teucer really yummies coffee, I do not, therefore I try teucer's coffee, Rin really yummies capers, teucer does not, so he eats Rin's capers. And so on until we come back around to C.M. and he has to try to yummy lobster.

I don't like that way as much because you only have to try to yummy one thing. But it seems a lot easier, because we've found very few matches in the "does not yummy" category. So maybe a list of things that people really really yummy is the safer easier way to go?

If anyone else needs a wasabi person, I eat it spread on toast with butter - it's good.

You eat wasabi the way I was told to eat vegemite.
I wanted to yummy vegemite but I didn´t.

Yes, and LIKE vegemite you shouldn't smeer it on like nuttella... A little marmite or wasabi goes a long way (although marmite doesn't cause you to collapse in literally blinding pain if you accidently inhale it into your sinus cavity).

Marmite, the OFFICIAL slogan (printed on every bottle) used to be "Too much ruins the taste"...
