Kim Severson wrote a groundbreaking story today that discusses the plight of food writers -- specifically how fucking fat they've gotten over the years from gorging their gullets on countless free meals.
I mean, who woulda thunk it? How could this one food blogger mentioned in the article ever have guessed that constant face-feeding would lead to his health problems. I mean, you'd never guess trouble was on the horizon, even when Severson describes the Batali-esque writer in the following way:
"He weighed more than 400 pounds, his blood pressure was dangerously high and his blood was thick with glucose and cholesterol."
Interesting. All the medical problems must have hit him out of nowhere like a ton of banana cream pies.
