Okay. Will someone please tell me when the word yum, and yummy became the mainstay of this nation's culinary vocabulary? I mean, do I have Rachel Ray to thank for that. YUM-O!!!!
Truly. There's an app by that name, a song title by that name, a cupcake bakery, mac software, a grocery store. Must I go on???
If I see one more email from a school parent describing the yummy snacks desired for a class party or one more flier screaming out in exclamation points about the yummy treats for sale at the community event I am going to take some of my own YUMMY goodies AND SHOVE THEM UP SOMEONE'S SUPER YUMMY A**!
I detest this word. What are we? Babies? Mommies feeding babies? "Open up the choo choo, honey, here comes some yummy mashed up chicken and peas!" Blech. For god's sake. Can we give up the charade and sound like the adults we are for a change? PLEASE?!
Even tasty goes down better than yummy.
I declare a moratorium on yum, yummy, and any derivatives thereof.
Anybody with me?
