Far and away I want this blog to be about my experiences growing, cooking, and eating food and not an aggregator of links to other blogs.  This post is the exception that proves that rule.

TasteTO (one very good aggregator of food links, among other things) had a link yesterday in their Food for Thought column to this story.  Apparently the founders of the website Thisiswhyyourefat.com have collected submitted photos of over-the-top food, made their submission policy pretty aggressive so that they own the rights to the photos, and are now shopping a book deal.  I’m not really bothered by this because, frankly, that one picture you took at your buddy’s bachelor party where he ate the 36 oz. burger does not a book deal make.  It’s the collecting and sorting of a much larger number of photos that might interest the “reading” public.
