This week, Katharine Shilcutt started counting down her 100 favorite dishes in Houston right now, and so far the response has been eerily good-natured. Like this one from Kozmonix, on her No.99, the Mixta Pizza at Friends Pizzeria:
OMG How could you pick this place?!?!?!?1111 There's so many better ones out there!!! GOD!!! There are better places on WASHINGTON!!!! RAWRARGHHHOMGWTFBBQ!!!!
Just kidding. Just wanted to ease you in to the smack talking that's bound to take place. Good luck and god speed to you. I'm hungry for pizza.
All right, we're pretty freaked out by your reasonable tone, Kozmonix. Slowing backing away. See y'all tomorrow...
