I opened a bag of delicious cheese puffs and it occurred to me that I could have a better time eating them if I picked them up and ate them using my toes, in fact the cheese puff form factor seems engineered to fit perfectly between toes. I didn't attempt this maneuver and as it turns out these cheese puffs, they smelled similarly to stinky feet but not in a bad way. I am still trying to understand the experience, how can a food that smells like feet smell appetizing while at the same time similarly smelling stinky feet smell repulsive.

I propose a new food category with a classification system.

Toe Foods A. Foods that smell like stinky feet.

B. Foods that could be consumed using your feet.

C. Foods that should be consumed using feet and that smell like stinky feet.

D.foods that are made of someone or somethings feet.

       My 7-month-old's dream come true. She can put both feet in her mouth, simultaneously I think.   

       Have you taken a wiff of baby formula lately? Smells exactly like feet.

       Categories A and D are widely known to exist.

       I'm thinking you are a closet foot fetisher. *new word* fetisher. Read it and weep.

       It is an interesting question: how an odor disgusting in one context can be appetitive or appealing in another. I have been reading about this. I learned that cheese in general is repulsive to many Chinese - but I do not think this is genetically hardwired as Americans of Chinese descent hog down the cheese with everyone else.   

       More interesting was the preference for "catty" notes in berry flavors among Europeans and especially in the UK. Americans do not like their berry flavors to taste catty. It occurs to me: maybe 8th's cat issues have to do with a catty flavor intake less than what his heritage demands?

       flavor? I think he would love a bundle of kittens broiled with a vinegar- herb sauce and cracked garlic on flat bread.

       Don't be ridiculous.   

       That would ruin them. They should be lightly pan-fried in olive oil.

       Soul food

       bungston "hog dow" is a great expression   

       I thought soul food was stepped on food?
vfrackis, Jul 29 2014
  

       No, that's sole food. You're thinking of food from Korea's capital.

       Doritos. They're handily flat, easily gripped between the toes, and smell much like those appendages after a few days in the same socks.
