In celebration of cooks who suck

Is it possible to vomit while laughing?

This appears to be the question behind a pair of websites that lampoon the popular practice of people taking pictures of their food and posting the results on social media.

Someone Ate This and Cook Suck (websites contain obscenities), which celebrate the botched efforts of would-be foodies, are simultaneously tasteless and hilarious.

Both have earned robust worldwide followings.

"The site came out two or so years ago at the height of the global food photography crisis, when absolutely everyone was taking pictures of their food, and not one of them had any idea why," says the blogger behind Cook Suck. "It was an epidemic, an absolute epidemic. I simply could not stand aside and let the 'om-nom-nom baked beans on toast #bestcookever' continue."

    The first blog is actually funny. The second is as unimpressive as the photos it lampoons.

    Is that what they're cooking in the photo - vomit?

      That looks like something I once stepped in while visiting my uncle's farm.

  5. Really?

    Agreed that they should be celebrated, but do they, in fact, swallow?
