Right here I’m, engaged on my submit and making an attempt to determine if AI goes to let me reside eternally or make everybody lifeless—and somebody sends me this Buzzfeed article. There are some issues that decision for a piece stoppage, and that is one in all them.
The title of the article is 20 Barely Incorrect Names For Meals. The type of factor your pal sends you and also you click on on it and browse the title and you then’re identical to, “Ahh FUCK. Okay fuck let’s scroll down by means of this complete factor now.” So I began scrolling. Let’s focus on (my ideas in blue)—
1. Milk snakes

Okay so the writer, Joanna Borns, has began off by taking a reputation of a meals and altering one of many phrases to an unrelated phrase that occurs to rhyme. It’s unrelated, proper? Except she’s suggesting that the straws resemble snakes? However that may’t be what’s occurring, proper? I’m most likely lacking one thing—let’s transfer to the following one.
2. Cheese quake

Okay so it’s confirmed. Joanna Borns has been commissioned by the most important web site on this planet to take regular meals and alter one phrase to an unrelated phrase that occurs to rhyme.
Time for a scrolldown to see what number of of those there are.
There are 20 of those. Now I’m leaning ahead, abruptly fascinated that this can be a factor that’s occurring.
3. Cinderella steaks

Attention-grabbing. So right here, Borns goes a special course, changing Mozzarella with Cinderella, presumably as a result of the latter syllables of the 2 phrases match. She might have let it go there, however she decides to additionally change “sticks” to “steaks,” a phrase that doesn’t rhyme however simply type of sounds the identical.
I’m taking just a few seconds right here to suppose exhausting about this. Is there some massive factor I’m lacking? Is there cheese within the story Cinderella and I’m forgetting? Are all these tremendous intelligent references and it hasn’t clicked but and as soon as it does I’ll be like “Ohhhhh okay”? Nonetheless undecided.
4. Buffalo issues

Buffalo Issues. So Borns is again to the “change one phrase to an unrelated phrase that occurs to rhyme” factor. It’s like she went out of the field on merchandise 3 after which determined to get ahold of herself and return to the unique plan.
5. Pen truffles

Alright right here we’re simply altering the phrase pan to pen and calling it a day. She labored exhausting to get a job at Buzzfeed, proper? It’s a must to work exhausting to be a Buzzfeed author, however then she will get there and she or he writes Pen Muffins for #5 and simply strikes on to the following one.
6. Egg bean & dip

This one took me a minute. She’s additionally blurring the traces a bit right here. After we had been on Cheese Quake and Pen Muffins, Borns made it clear she’d really feel no obligation for the modified phrase to have something to do with meals or the item at hand. However now she’s getting nearer to a related phrase—hollandaise is nearly dip. Simply noting.
7. Peanut boy and jaleel

Borns is formally bored. Earlier within the challenge, she would have stated one thing like “Peanut Butter and Deli” or “Peanut Cutter and Jelly” and saved issues in line. However right here she modifies butter to boy, which is actually her simply selecting a b-word with no pointers in any respect, and then she goes insane and adjustments jelly to jaleel. Is she dabbling in informal racism? I can’t inform. All we do know is that she apparently felt that “Peanut boy and jaleel” was passable and moved on.

Right here Borns has taken one meals and changed it with the title of one other meals that type of sounds the identical. I’ve a ton to do proper now btw.
9. Hum bungalo

I’ve by no means seen something cockier than Borns proper now. She took “hamburger,” modified a vowel, after which erased “burger” and changed it with a random b-word. Nobody has ever given much less of a fuck.
10. Peppertony pizzzazz

As we hit the halfway level, Borns shits on our faces by altering Pepperoni Pizza to Peppertony Pizzzazz. There aren’t any guidelines right here. I’ve been making an attempt to carry onto any semblance of construction I might however there’s nothing in any respect to carry on to. She added a person’s title into the primary phrase, type of, after which simply rejects every thing on this planet by placing three Z’s in a row within the second phrase. I’ve misplaced. Borns has received.
11. Not bones

If I had been in a restaurant, and I ordered Pen Muffins, the waiter and I may need a chuckle and he’d carry me my pancakes. But when I ordered Not Bones, the waiter wouldn’t suppose that was a cute play on the phrase nachos, he wouldn’t know what the fuck I used to be speaking about. Not an element for Borns.

Tens of hundreds of adults simply arrived at #12, learn the phrase “Blumbos,” and that’s a part of their day now, as a result of Borns doesn’t consider in something.
13. French mates

You already know we’ve reached a darkish level when my requirements have turn into so groundbreakingly low that I see that the writer has modified French Fries to French Buddies and I believe, “Oh that’s truly an honest one.”

The lady within the image most likely isn’t Joanna Borns. However that’s precisely what I believe she appears like proper now as she’s typing these titles. She alters Salad to Salmon, a change that has no which means or goal, after which instantly takes an enormous chew of salad whereas she stares on the reader with that face on.
15. Alternative plate

The worst factor about that is the folks studying this text who’re aspiring writers and would love an opportunity to write down for Buzzfeed. Behind the browser they’re studying this text on is a Phrase doc of the humorous, insightful article they spent the final month fastidiously engaged on—an article they hope can catch the world’s consideration. In the meantime, the world’s attentionis on a cheese plate—one which has been renamed Alternative plate.
16. Mega roni & cheats

I’ve nothing extra to say about this text and neither do you.

Borns is a bully. She’s bullying the readers and she or he’s bullying Buzzfeed. As a substitute of arising with a title for sushi, she actually writes Shhhhhh in the identical voice as that Nazi character in Saving Personal Ryan as he slowly stabs the nice man by means of the chest.
18. Bong paquito

The one ray of sunshine is I’m sensing that whereas making it as clear as doable to each individual studying this text that they’re a loser, Borns has inadvertently defeated herself too. There’s no method she felt good about writing Bong Paquito right here. No winners will emerge from this.
19. Spagine & meats

Ohhh yeah she fucking hates herself proper now. That swagger simply deflated out of the room within the final two objects.

In one of many darkest moments in human historical past, Borns finishes by altering Taco to Speaking, actually ending everybody’s life eternally.
And now, with a completely decrease degree of shallowness, I’ll attempt to get again to work.
