As a "chef," why waste precious bodily fluids spitting in someone's food when it gets sent back to the kitchen where it's probably too hot, anyway?

As a bar patron who has to uh, *go* - certainly nobody will take a swig of your drink while you're away. Just rip one. Uh-

       "prpbably" ? It must be all that junk food giving you gas.

       Oddly enough, bottled spit is baked, though not widely known I’d wager. Divers use it in lieu of their own spit as a mask defogger. The best defoggers contain the enzyme ptyalin (from saliva) which is mixed with water and organic salts. It’s spit. If, however, you’d like mucins mixed in with that - you’re on your own.   

       “I can’t believe it’s not spit!” is an old line.

       There, a little spit and it's all shined up!

       Today on IRON CHEF the ingredient will be...   

       ewwww. I'll just summons up my own, thanks.

       Despite what you might think, from the name, Pocari Sweat is actually quite bad. Not entirely wretched, but entirely not good. Milkis, on the other hand...   

       I believe a number of universities are working on more realistic artificial saliva, though not for commercial reasons.

       Ugh!

       Well, they were advertising pills for people with dry eyes. Maybe this is next...

       One word for your idea: Ewwwww!

       Pocari sweat is neither "thick" nor noticably "salty", it's just a variation of gatorate - uncarbonated, lemony, sugary, and thin. But for the weird name, there would be little remarkable about it.

       It is kind of salty, though so is gatorade.

       Half-baked as "Salivex", featured in commercials on the radio in GTA: Vice City. Basically a blowjob tool for dry mouths.

       The birds nests in birds nest soup are made from the spittle of birds (some kind of swallow that lives in caves), and its apparently quite delicious.   

       So maybe human saliva prepared in the right way would also be tasty. But I guess that's another idea...

       Although I've been tempted many, many times to spit in someone's food, I will never publicly admit to having done so. Though as a chef, I feel that adding my own precious bodily fluids(spit and phlegm) to the food I'm serving serves as a simple revenge to the jerk who made my favorite waitress cry on an exceptionally busy weekend evening. Real spit is free(and flavorless), plus the act of hocking a a loogie on someone's meal is a cathartic method of on the job stress relief. Or so I'm told. ;)
