Excess at its Most Inappropriate

I am so full from Ethiopian food that (if I could) I would purge it all to give my organs breathing room.

And that, I believe, is the definition of a culturally insensitive statement.


But it doesn't make it any less true.

8 keep(s) me blogging:

Is that like stewed goat or something? Don't worry about the cramped feeling, it'll soon make it's way to your butt.

What exactly is Ethopian food? And don't you dare tell me to Google it. So help me God!

Culturally insensitive is if you don't smile while belching while picking your teeth.

Charlie's right, you aren't being culturally insensitive. More like socio-economically insensitive. Or oxy moronish. Or maybe just plain moronish??

(Don't hit me too hard, you know I bruise easy.)

Bulimia is all the rage here in the states (an that... I believe... is another insensitive statement)
you'd fit right in=)

I take it this was not the meal you had at the Dinerant.

goranas - there's not a single fattening ingredient in eth. food.

or - well i was going to tell you but now i'm just going to tell you to google it. i'll expect your next food-related video to be a product of what you've learned.

charlie - and here i thought it would be puking in front of starving children. sigh.

waif - i'll just tell the waif to give you a broom banken.

auri - it's cleansing isn't it?! being insensitive, not bulimia. although...

future - no. i had a homemade poptart at the dinerant.
