Comment of the Day: Not in My Stomach

Here on Eating Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog, and our Comment of the Day honors the best of the bunch.

Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.

In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.

Today, Nick Hall wrote about the Hubcap Grill in his DEFCON dining series, proclaiming the 19th Street location not a bad place for kids. One commenter, Craigly, said, "Sounds friggin charming. NOT." to wit SirRon made a point about the exclamation that seems to have fallen out of favor:

Kind of unrelated, but I hope "NOT" comes back. I know what you are saying: "It never left!" But for whatever reason, it became uncool to follow some feign statement with a loud "NOT!!".

I hope "PSYCH!" comes back too.


We totally agree with you, SirRon. NOT!

Too easy.
