The Waukesha Freeman has a thing called “Soundoff” on their opinion page. It allows every moron (including myself) to post comments on whatever they feel like. It usually starts with a comment on some recent news item, then the next day someone writes in to rip the opinion of the first guy, then the next day the first commenter responds. Its a horrible feature and pretty much goes against everything that a newspaper should be by allowing incoherent rants that often include racism, slander, and outright lies to be published anonymously. Well alongside all of that crap this morning was a rant against garlic:
“Garlic When to use garlic? Number one, I like garlic. I like some garlic on salami, a prime rib and Easter Polish sausage. However, why must garlic be used on roast chicken, thrown into mashed potatoes and other restaurant meats? Are the meat and potatoes that bad-tasting? Why not cook with no garlic and have garlic powder shakers like salt and pepper on the table? Then you can put on as much garlic as you want. “
I kind of think garlic is overrated, but would never be so angry at it overuse take the time or energy to write into the local paper to bitch about it.
