Not too long ago I wrote a piece entitled Why do I hate Sandra Lee so much? that I used as a launching off point for a rant about what a wasteland Food Network has become. I used Sandra Lee, rightfully so, as the spokesmodel for everything wrong with what used to be my favorite network.
Many times when I go on these rants people ask me why I don’t just change the channel and shut the %@#& up. On the surface that would seem to be a quite legitimate question. Why waste my breath ranting and raving about some Prozac addled Stepford wife whose claim to fame is that she can’t cook, and writes cookbooks for those who don’t want to cook? I could just change the channel, but what would I change it to?
As Mrs. Cleaver was wont to say at times while walking gingerly through her spotless kitchen, “Gee Ward, weren’t you a little hard on the beaver last night?” Apparently not. It seems she even creeps out the last person worth watching on the Food Network.
This is Alton Brown dishing on a lot of the other denizens of his workplace. The part about our favorite Lobotomized Little Debbie comes at about the mid-point. I’m pretty sure I will have many horrible nightmares based on the story he tells.
I think that I just threw up a little in my mouth.
