    Default Taking Things to the Extreme- Wow!! and a fun read!!

    This article caught my eye the other day as my son & I were returning
    to the bus stop after watching the Sounders will last Saturday- I had
    grabbed this paper to read on the way home. It is quite the
    interesting read about taking things a little extreme! LOL! Would you
    dare eat at his place? Have any of you heard of this guy?

    Extreme? He's a dirtbag.

    I wouldn't give him the time of day. He sounds like a first class
    jerk.

    Yeah, but I'm sure you wouldn't like anything from there, or else
    you'd be allergic...

    ROFLMAO!!!


    One should really check into something before making asinine
    comments.....

    http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/vorac...ally_exist.php


    It was satire, deary.

    "Locavorism--in short, the increased emphasis on preparing and eating
    food produced close to home--is at its core a wonderful development.
    However hollow it may feel to some, the fact that McDonald's has
    launched a billboard campaign touting the amount of Washington-made
    products it uses is a sign that the movement has resonated from shore
    to shore.

    But it's simultaneously grown somewhat insufferable.

    For decades, The Herbfarm has quietly produced many of the ingredients
    it uses in the kitchen in an onsite garden. Quietly--that's the
    operative word. But with the emergence of Michael Pollan, smugger-than-
    thou hipster food-fetish clubs, and pig slaughters for show, the
    elitism and pretentiousness surrounding the movement have grown
    deafening. Hence, the decision to knock 'em down a peg with the
    creation of Lou Kohl (modeled by Alejandro Garcia, who in real life
    plays in the band No Rey), the most extreme personification of these
    trends that we could cobble together in print."

    LOL!! Sucked in!!

    Oh, really? It would be entertaining to see a guy punch a bull in the
    balls with brass knuckles before he kills it?

    He did it to the bull with brass knuckles. He also broke off a horn.
    I don't have the link anymore, but basically he beat up the bull
    before he killed it. Whatta fun guy.

    I don't take to that one bit. Let's hide out and attack him in an alley and
    do it back to him.

    I must admit I fell for it, but something didn't seem quite right-
    maybe it was growing his own coca plants...
    It was pretty entertaining, you must admit...

    I agree totally with what you've said, sf.

    I think I would have added "Weird" to "Asshole" however.

    I went back and read the rest of the article yesterday. Don't do it.
    You'll get a knot in your stomach over what he does, but I was turned
    off at his 60 mile limit to where articles of clothing were made. His
    "guests" not only have to remove the item, it's burned. All that for
    a $500 dinner where you sit at a table made of twigs eating food that
    was tortured to death. To get there, first you have to beat one of
    his employees at horse shoes, then ride to his farm blindfolded and
    silent, then you wait in absolute silence as strangers trickle in
    while he butchers and prepares the meal. I decided that he's the male
    version of a dominatrix, otherwise people wouldn't pay so much to be
    treated so badly.

    Didn't do what? He punched it in the face, broke off a horn and took
    brass knuckles to it's balls before killing it. All that and he grows
    his own coca plants and makes his own cocaine. Whoop tee do.
