They Tried to Kill Us, We Won, Let's Eat

OK, so the Jewish fascination with food is not exactly a secret, and with only four weeks to finish all that mishloach manot candy... But I think in our zeal to claim this food fascination as ours, we forget that, well, the rest of the world likes to eat too.

Every single week, the food articles are the most e-mailed articles from the NY Times Web site. Not the brilliant or not-so-brilliant columns, not the editorials in which the Times preaches to the entire world, not the cute little featurey pieces about kids, not even, y'know, the articles about what's going on in the world. No, it seems that NY Times readers are just as obssesed with food as us Jews.

Now excuse me, while I go to consume more sugar than one should ever put in one's body...
