You know, I've had some discussions with people abut the term "foodie" recently. Some people find it to be, at the very least, weird. Who calls themselves a "foodie" anyway is one of the things I've heard. Personally, it doesn't bother me either way. If someone's biggest problem is with the term "foodie" then they have a bit too much time on their hands. Either that or just don't have anything else better to do.
So, while on Google+ today, it hit me. An epiphany...an "ah ha" moment of sorts. I have officially coined this new name that might take the world by storm. What's the beautiful thing? Well, there are a few. First is that this word has been created by me. It also appears on my copyright-protected blog. So either way, I can make some money should I so choose. Either way, it doesn't matter to me.
This new word is inspired partially by Yiddish. Does anyone remember "Welcome Back Kotter" from the 1970's? You'll see it on syndicated TV from time to time. Anyway, one of the main characters (Arnold Horshack) would use the word Schmendrick. That was used to describe a stupid person. Well, before I go further, I'm not about calling any of you stupid. If I did, would anyone read this blog? Nope. My new term is inspired from that phrase, which one meaning means fool. So I decided to call this new term "foodrick", a fool for all things culinary. It's different and gender neutral. Besides, I figured that I could throw this out and see what sticks. Any thoughts?
