Lunch Room Chatter: Welcome to the human slaughterhouse

By Tim Carman

The latest in food news, ideas and philosophy, just in time for your lunch break.

* "During peacetime, when we need metaphors, we raid the language of war. But the idiom of wartime is food: cannon fodder, carnage, slaughterhouse. Buildings and people are pancaked, sandwiched, sardined. Perhaps it is because the destruction reminds us of the knowledge we spend our lives avoiding — that we are all meat in the end.” (NYT)

* The FDA is seriously cheesed off. (WaPo)

* Maryland by the slice. (Slice)

* Day 5 of my low-sodium diet: I've been looking longingly at these pages for an hour now. (TBD)

* Totally funny. Totally random. Totally weird. Totally wish they had included Woody Allen. (Slate)

* Super Bowl commercial controversy: funny or gross? (Crash the Super Bowl)

* Remind me never to rent a car in Fresno, Calif. (Men's Health)

* A cup that's bottle ready. (Eater)

* What would Bob Marley eat? (Food & Think)
