Thunderdome CCCXLiI: A human being is primarily a bag for putting food into

YOUR TASK:

Write a story involving a specific cuisine / food / style of cooking / edible

FAQ:

Q: wait, any type of cuisine?
A: Yes! OHO A TWIST - make it interesting you dummy. Don't go "then i'll write generic Chinese food ching chong wing wong" at least give me some authenticity like super specific stuff e.g. uighur or sichuan or guangxi or something, or some diaspora-tinged weirdass Midwest American place that serves fries with their chop suey. go nutsssss but ok if you just write a dumpling and it makes me laugh or cry or puke it's ok too ehhh i don't care write good words

Q: what do you mean by edible
A: Yes! This means you don't have to be region-specific! Any kind of weird type of cooking or food works! although that cooking with marijuana show on netflix sucks big time and i dunno how they managed to do that

Q: so a fictional alien / cyberpunk / steampunk / bamboopunk / inedible cuisine too?
A: Yes!

Q: can i write just a recipe
A: Yes! ok but make it work u donkey

Q: but Rhino I am idea deprived
A: Yes! you totally are so if you want the coveted 2,020 words ask for a flash! Actually I change my mind you will get those number of words too without a flash

Q: wait did a real wallpaper site use that quote and
A: Yes IMEANSHUTUP

Thunderdome CCCXLiI JUDGEMENT



CHEFTESTANTS! We had a pretty good week, where we have been served with some of the finest cooking Thunderdome has offered. From the morally questionable brandy-drowned ortolan, cleanliness-relative scavenged delicacies, to strangely horny Scandinavian condiments - we must reach a verdict: can writers cook? Honestly I don't think we have an answer for that but we know you can write some............. words! So that's good I guess?

e: The Sean is DQ'd for late food delivery and i have asked for a refund

One of you didn't make the cut, and unfortunately that falls on the story Fear Eatself, for writing a tale with some fairly good language but somewhat confusing plotting where judges couldn't tell why there's a description of someone else's mouth and then a few paragraphs of how blood in fear is yummy. Alas, Easy Diff, you may pack your knives and go (until the next TD prompt).

Those of you who excel above the rest are sparksbloom's Chicken, for delivering us a hilarious yet touching story of a lady who has cooked a horrifying floor chicken that everyone must loving eat because gently caress you, and AntiVehicular's The First Minnesotan Funeral on Callisto which captured the essence of how food brings people together and the culture it creates among communities, even if you are in space.

But only one of you can be top chef, and congratulations are in order for crimea for delivering the masterpiece of The Butcher is Your Friend, where the meal is frankly incredibly illegal basement sentient beings and the diner is... also the same! It's pretty terrifying but not as much as Floor Chicken!

Enjoy your first blood throne!

Yes! I'm so glad you got this (there's something else but the shop has yet to respond to my latest email). There's history to this that went down and Chili was there to watch me shout a lot in our private chat, where i bought an initial gift and then received an email where

quote:

RHINO: OH MY GOD

CHILI: Yes, my child?

RHINO: i bought on etsy something I thought was a finished stitched product, it turns out they just send a pdf with the pattern on it!!!

CHILI: oh gently caress
CHILI: lol
CHILI: that's irritating

RHINO: i mean, i did wonder why it cost that little but STILL
RHINO: it has the highest rating when i searched "thunderdome" so i thought it was a real product
RHINO: the classic scam!!!!!

This was what I bought initially


and now I possess the embroidery pattern in a pdf document. I'm happy to send it to anybody who sends me a PM here, on Discord or wherever else.

I am still MAD!!!! the bit about it being just a digital pdf is hidden halfway in the description that you won't notice immediately, and when i msged them saying "hey can i send this with a gift message" they said "sure" and I wrote "dear forum goon the antivehicular you can never leave love a rhino" and then they send me the email one week later AND THEY NEVER EVEN INCLUDED THE GIFT MESSAGE, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS TO MYSELF

anyway i'm very glad i didn't get scammed again and the embroider for this was very nice and didn't ask why i said i'm a rhino, also she thought your name is Whelk which i found very funny

thunderdome is one of the best things that happened to me this decade, for reasons incl but not limited to getting to write ridiculous sentences and somehow not be shunned, and also for reading many terrible words. also this community is great i guess lol.

happy hols, stay safe stay weird, talk to ppl and practise self-care if you feel overwhelmed any time, git gud at writing
