Unwrapped

I may have posted about this before, but I can't remember for sure, so I'm doing it anyway. Just about anything looks nasty in bulk. The one I'm watching now is about summertime food or something, and I've seen a bunch of lemon pulp, slabs of taffy, and long, disgusting folds of custard flowing out of the machine. The one I saw once about cheetos made me not want to eat them anymore. That's what has led me to the conclusion that no matter how much you like something, if you see it in bulk, it's going to look like shit.

I dunno, I would think slabs of taffy would look good, just in the aesthetic sense. Not in the "ooh, I-want-to-eat-that" sense. I watch the show every now and then and I just like watching the machines work. The kinds of foods they present on that show aren't the things I eat anyway, so it's never turned my stomach.
