In my native Kansas City, food culture is becoming more and more of a "thing." From Anthony Bourdain's regular visits to local barbecue joints to new food websites popping up, the chatter about new eateries and local delicacies is getting to a broiling point. Me, however — I take more of an Arlo approach. His line in the last panel of Tuesday's Arlo & Janis is a great variation of the "eat to live, don't live to eat" mantra that I'll be sure to quote next time I get stuck in a conversation about the merits of farm-to-table dining and raising one's own chickens.
Another good source of foodie/locavore skepticism is Jeff Stahler's Moderately Confused (above). Jeff does a great job of skewering the latest trends, including restaurant and coffee shop culture, social media and the way people communicate. Be sure to check out ModCon on (where else?) GoComics.
Thought I had more comics to share with you, but the week is almost over, and writing all of this is starting to make me pretty darn hungry. Have a fun and nourishing Labor Day!
