Tip of the toque to Lisa Petty for turning me on to this link, which led me to this link, that led me to this psycho foodie highly caffeinated twitter- holic who allegedly “invented” the term foochebag. Until I found this link to Brandon Smith, an intern for ABC 7 Chicago’s food reporter, Steve Dolinsky. (Hi, Steve!)
Foochebag: “foodies who are categorized by “attention-seeking, elitism, and superficiality.” Basically, arrogant food bloggers and Twitter users.
Wow, it’s a new day. Are you a foochebag? I guess I am because I know Steve Dolinsky! You are if you are the “mayor” of any restaurant in Dallas. Step forward and let thyself be known.
Update: Mister Foochebag claims he learned the term from Michael Nagrant.
Update: Phaedra in Houston is claiming the rights. I am a douche canoe for calling her a psycho foodie.
