Yep, the writer of “Yummy Awesome” hates the word “yum.”

15 Feb

Let’s talk about the word yummy and its gross overuse.

When the Dirty Canadian and I were coming up with silly names for this blog, the phrase Yummy Awesome slipped out of one of us. And it was so abysmally ridiculous, so incredibly childish, and so innocently funny that we had to use it.

We can also admit that at times, we are as equally ridiculous, childish, and funny.

Yummy isn’t a serious word and this was never intended to be a serious blog. So the word was perfect.

But there are countless ass clowns out there who use the word seriously. And constantly. And without any other words around it.

And it pisses me off. So fucking much.

This all started with Pinterest. Everyone is creaming their corn over this site so I had to check it out. (I’m in fucking advertising. It’s my fucking job. Don’t fucking judge me.) And I keep seeing professionally shot photos of professionally art directed food pop up that are pinned by my “friends.” And the categories and comments are ALWAYS one of the following:

  • Yum!!!!!
  • Yummy!!!!!
  • So Yummy!
  • YuMMMMM!!!! 🙂 🙂
  • !!!!!!Yummy in my Tummy!!!!!!! OMG!
  • This is yummy.
  • Yummmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy sugar-coated beef, Batman, is it really that hard to use another word? People are yumming all over themselves. There’s hot, sticky yum everywhere.

Stop using yum. Get a fucking thesaurus and expand your vocabulary. There are countless ways to express great flavor.

Tasty. Delicious. Fucking good!

Delectable. Tempting. Finger-licking.

Scrumptious. Appetizing. Flavorful.

Shit! Just say, “Food that looks good.” Or “Things I want to lick.” Or possibly, “Put this in my fucking mouth right the fuck now.”

Instead of labeling cakes and candies (that you’ll never ever in a thousand years be able to replicate, by the way, because you won’t get the fuck off of Pinterest) as “YUM@!!!!AFSDT#QR~Q!@!#!!!

I’m so sick of the word yummy. And I write for a food blog called Yummy Awesome. Is that the bitter taste of irony?
