It just goes to show how little happens during the doldrums of summer that the paparazzi decided to snap pictures of the erstwhile Bud Bundy, David Faustino, exiting an El Pollo Loco, of all things.
Don’t you feel like, if you were David Faustino, just running out for some sweet charbroiled chicken, you’d be all, “…I can’t believe the one time I run out for chicken wearing the shorts I use when I’m working in my wood-working shed, I get snapped by the paparazzi?! YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME”? I actually might have gone back into El Pollo Loco and made a sign to hold up, so as to explain to them that they’d simply gotten me at a bad time.
THE TASK: Please write the sign you would hold up to the paparazzi if you were in Faustino’s ratty sneaks.
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday.
THE PRIZE: It is apt that this FFF takes place at a dining establishment, as today’s prize is four copies of Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic’s new book, Suffering Succotash: A Picky Eater’s Quest to Understand Why We Hate the Foods We Hate. Per Amazon: “Suffering Succotash is a wide-angle look into the world of picky eating, told by a writer who’s been in the culinary trenches. With wit and charm, through visits to laboratories specializing in genetic analysis, attempts to infiltrate the inner workings of a “feeding” clinic, and interviews with fellow picky eaters and adventurous foodies young and old, Stephanie explores her own food phobias and gets to the bottom of what repulses us about certain foods, what it really means to be a picky eater, and what we can do about it.” I’ve read it, and it’s an engrossing and very humorous look at a really interesting subject — and I say that as someone who is both NOT a picky eater, and someone who rarely reads non-fiction, so you know it’s good! You will enjoy it, Fug Nation! So get writing.
