Redneck cuisine is better for the environment too. I’ll prove it.
Take roadkill cuisine, which according to Wiki is “considered unglamorous and mocked in pop culture, where it is often associated with stereotypes of rednecks and uncouth persons.” Below are some of the advantages of roadkill meat:
- low cost
- organic meat that’s naturally high in vitamins and proteins with lean meat and little saturated fat
- organic meat that’s free of antibiotics and other drugs
- organic meat that doesn’t come from animals who lived in filthy overcrowded cages and pens
Meaning those deplorable roadkill scavengers are eating food that’s healthier and more environmentally friendly than the over-priced, over-modified, over-hyped and environmentally destructive bullshit people buy at Whole Foods. More examples of how Redneck food is superior later. Let’s first take a look at what middle-class America thinks everyone should eat.
Why Middle Class America eats “BAD” food
Because the American middle-class doesn’t define itself in terms of economic clout and technological sophistication. This demographic instead defines itself *against* another group, usually Rednecks (and otherwise the One Percent). And that’s precisely why the American middle-class — the most medicated demographic in the world — can’t think straight as consumers and make ridiculous demands to indulge their delusions about themselves. In this batshit crazy world, decisions are based less on practical considerations and more on identity politics. That’s why middle-class Americans have a habit of wanting to eat “BAD” food, as Paul Fussell puts it:
…in fruits and vegetables, “pretty” has overtaken actual, honest, and safe in the Basic American Diet. What he’s getting at is the scandal of cosmeticizing produce to make it attractive to the ignorant — coloring oranges orange, for instance, or breeding apples and cherries and strawberries so impressively large that they’re quite tasteless. Now, in violation of all natural laws, apples are spotchless, wormless, and lustrously red or green. Grapefruits are perfectly round, as firm as baseballs and as yellow as forsythia, and these phony appearances — BAD in a nutshell — are produced by an infinite number of exotic and untested constituents, residing in the chemicals used to bring on these freaks of visual vegetable perfection.
Middle America isn’t satisfied with botoxing and medicating just themselves, they have to botox and medicate their fruits and vegetables too because pompous people need pompous things, including pompous inbred food that look like this.
instead of fruit and vegetables that may look like this:
and is superior in taste and nutrition to their uniformly “pretty” counterparts. American middle class buy with their eyes instead of their minds, as if shopping for a street whore.
If this bizarre consumer demand for cosmetic uniformity of produce is a reflection of Middle-Class America’s intolerance for diversity of thought and personalities, then what might the absence of fish and fowl heads on their dinner tables suggest about their psychological state? Fussell again:
This manifestation of BAD does accord with American disinclination to accept unpleasant facts, like the cruel fact that oranges are really greenish-yellow and often ovoid, and the wormless apple is really an anomaly that, without dye and polish, will look pretty shabby.
There’s no demographic in history that’s this uncomfortable with being uncomfortable. And not just uncomfortable with racy and racist jokes and reminders that what they’re eating was once alive, these kooky conformists expect eating to be as easy as sucking on mommy’s tits back when they were babies. That’s why we have chicken nuggets, because they’re boneless and already cut up. That’s why there are no fish bones, ever. The American middle-class eat like three year olds, which would be fine if they’d shut up and stop projecting their mommy and daddy issues onto those who just want to be left alone.
Travel around the world and you’ll see that people aren’t this squeamish and pampered when it comes to eating (except among the middle class in Anglo nations such as Canada and The UK). This isn’t normal, it’s not healthy or tasty to eat this way (bones enhance flavor and provide essential nutrients) and it’s wasteful to discard edible food.
Examples of “BAD” food
The merely bad, Fussell points out, is “something like dog-do on the sidewalk, or a failing grade.” “BAD” taste, on the other hand, is anything “phony, clumsy, witless, untalented, vacant, or boring that many Americans can be persuaded is genuine, graceful, bright, or fascinating.” Here are more examples from past and present of BAD food middling America has and does enjoy because they think it’s healthier and/or tastier and/or more ethical when it’s not:
- Skinless chicken breast (pay more for less!)
- Extra lean ground beef (pay more for less!)
- Kobe beef burgers (asshole burger, pay more for fat that will be cooked off)
- Margarine (Frankenbutter)
- White bread (Frankenbread)
- Acai bowls (want to buy one so I can throw it at someone)
- Fortune cookies (over a billion Chinese have asked: “who comes up with this shit?”)
- Processed cheese (Frankencheese)
You can be sure that once middle-class America figures out that what they’re eating is actually BAD — like with margarine and white bread — cultural amnesia will set in and they’ll accuse Rednecks of perpetrating BAD culture.
Examples of Redneck food that’s good for you
- Pig’s trotters (collagen good for skin and joint health)
- Oxtail soup (best bone cut for broth that promotes joint health. Now upscale food)
- Livermush (pig’s head and liver molded into pate, a variation of which I recently had at a high end restaurant)
- Chitterlings (pig intestine contains lots of selenium which reduces risk of heart disease and asthma)
- Squirrel (we’re overrun with gray squirrels. Tastes sweet and nutty).
Aside from the squirrel, the above is what people from most parts of the world eat. If what one eats is a reflection of one’s values and character, who do you think is more tolerant and open minded and responsible, the Redneck or the middle class American? Who demands total conformity of manners and taste? Who lacks conviction and lives according to the latest fashion and fads? Who lives in an over-sanitized world maintained by intolerance and fear? Who is the ignorant, uncouth fucktard now?
