View Full Version : Mota Boy's Thought of the Day

I don't get all the hype about salsa. Salsa's kinda a funny word and fun to say. Salsa salsa salsa. But now that I think about it, Seinfeld may have done something on that, though, so that's not what this is about. This is about the hype over salsa. "What you say?", you say? Well, in the past few years, salsa has overtaken ketchup (http://www.oznet.ksu.edu/dickinson/facs/Archive/salsa.htm) as America's numero uno condiment. See? That article even dubs it "The condiment of the 90s". No, wait, lemme change that - ketchup is actually still number one (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m4021/is_n1_v20/ai_20111750). No, wait, lemme correct myself again - I don't give a flying fuck.

You see, salsa overtaking ketchup is supposed to be a Big Deal. It illustrates Americas growing diversity or some shit like that. And it's a news story. A cultural force (well, less now than a while ago). The "condiment of the 90s". Salsa is hip. What the fuck?

First off, I challenge salsa's condiment status. Salsa isn't a condiment - salsa is food. You scoop it up on chips and eat it by itself. If we're gonna include all things dipped as condiments, then I bet cheese beats the shit outta salsa. Salsa is a dip. Salsa is a food. End of story. The salsa-as-condiment movement is overseeing a campaign of disinformation. Honestly, where do you use salsa? Do you slop it on your burgers or use it to baste your fries? You salsa people are a bunch of damn liars.

Secondly, salsa is bland. It's even blander than ketchup, for cryin' out loud. This isn't something to be welcomed to our tables. This is something to be indifferently gnawed on pre-burrito. I'll tell you a couple up-and-coming condiments.

Ranch: Just a few years ago it was a salad dressing, then a dip. Suddenly it's everywhere. It's on burgers outta Burger King and chicken sandwiches from Subway. Some pizza chain is marketing a Ranch pizza. It's something like 10,000 calories per gram and spilling into every conceivable food because we're a nation of mindless lard-zombies.

Sriracha: Now this is a damn sauce. A Thai chili sauce (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sriracha) that goes straight to the brain's pleasure center, sriracha is what the fine art of condimentin' is all about. Screw salsa and those salsa freaks, sriracha's where it's at.

My stunning contribution is as follows:
Salsa is possibly the most disgusting tasting yet still popular food I've ever had the displeasure of eating.

And oh, I really enjoy reading these little rant type things of yours. I remember a few from when I first registered, but you seemed to slow down for a little while. I'm glad they're making a return.

Factually incorrect.

Anyway, salsa is a widely varied thing. I don't really give a fuck whether it's a condiment or not, but if you're used to that Tostitos-brand store-bought shit, then yeah, it sucks. My favorite Mexican restaurant, Dos Taquitos, has some delicious salsa.

This is true... I've never heard of salsa being called a condiment... because it's not one! It's definitely a food/dip. If I'm eating salsa, and there's some left after my chips are gone, I'll either put it back in the container or eat the little that's left straight. I would NEVER do that with a condiment; I'd throw it out.


Secondly, salsa is bland. It's even blander than ketchup, for cryin' out loud.
Americanized salsa is nothing too spectacular. Mexican salsa or kinds that try to be more mexican is super awesome and spicy and flavorful. Even the really Americanized mild salsa is still vastly superior to ketchup, though. I eat ketchup, but holy fuck it's disgusting. It's so overly processed and basically a paste... atleast you get a little of real food products in salsa.


Ranch: Just a few years ago it was a salad dressing, then a dip. Suddenly it's everywhere. It's on burgers outta Burger King and chicken sandwiches from Subway. Some pizza chain is marketing a Ranch pizza. It's something like 10,000 calories per gram and spilling into every conceivable food because we're a nation of mindless lard-zombies.
Up and coming?? maybe it's different where you live... but ranch is totally way more popular here than salsa... it was "up and coming" 5 years ago here...

I've been to many a Mexican restaurant, and there are quite a few authentic ones around these here parts, and I've never had a memorable salsa that I wouldn't trade for cheese dip without a second thought.


Yuck I hate that stuff. :( But now you're calling salsa a condiment! Make up your mind, damn it!!
Au contraire, I dismiss salsa as a food and/or food additive entirely. My first point is that it's not a condiment, my second is that it's not even that tasty.

I'm pretty sure I'm down with cilantro, but I can't entirely remember.


Oh, and the silliest serious argument I've ever gotten into with a friend of mine was over whether or not peanut butter was a condiment. To this day the poor sap won't admit that it's a food.

Cheese dip is obviously superior which is why you have to pay for it. If salsa wasn't generally free the consumption would most likely plummet.

I'm from Wisconsin, so I'll be the first to announce with bells ringing that cheese dip owns EVERYTHING, if it's done right. Due to the Wisconsin thing, I tend to be quite spoiled with anything cheese (much like calichix and mexican food), though. Since I'm not very picky with salsa, I'll often pick it over a cheap or poorly done cheese dip.

And wtf? Peanut Butter is most definitely a food and not a condiment.

Oh, and I just checked a list of condiments on wiki... it lists cheese as a condiment. CHEESE. Hell no. I can eat an entire brick of cheese in one sitting. That is not a condiment. Nor is Saurkraut! Dumb asses.

That's because you're not a REAL Wisconsinite! Plus, cheese is not as big of a deal when you live by Milwaukee. And I was watching that 70s show this afternoon, and I liked this line a LOT: "You're not allergic to cheese; you live in Wisconsin."

Sort of, but not quite. When you go to Austria, you'll experience a chain of stores called Aldi. You will find this product there. And you will buy it, becuase this is the cheapest store ever. You will also buy booze there, and you will continue to do so until you connect your horrible, bleeding-brain-fucking hangovers with the awful taste and cheap price of their booze.

Yeah... I wouldn't mind going if I didn't require driving to go grocery shopping. I drive because I only do the shopping once a month, and I always get too much to carry on the bus. And I don't have the time to go more than once a month... plus if I go more often, I end up spending too much during the month. So driving is the option of choice for groceries. Sometimes I do miss the ghetto cruiser I used to have... :p

I've never had airport cheese curds... the funny thing about cheese in wisconsin is that you have to go to the obnoxiously stupid looking CHEESE stores. When you're on any major freeway in Wisconsin, you will see massive billboards and signs that just say "CHEESE" on them. They tend to be in the middle of nowhere (because Wisconsin has a lot of that!), and they seem really podunk. But damn. You will never have better cheese in your entire life. I got a 5 lb block of Munster cheese at one of those stores for like $3 once. They have every type of cheese imaginable, and it's always SO fresh. None of this shipped and overly-packaged-to-retain-as-much-moisture-as-possible shit. This is the real deal. You get cheese curds at a cheese store... well, cheese curds are no good unless they squeak obnoxiously when you bite into them. That means they're fresh. If cheese didn't have to be refridgerated, I would drive to wisconsin, buy a shit ton of cheese curds, and mail them to you. Seriously, you haven't lived.

Okay, I'm done with my obsessive cheese rant.

I totally agree that peanut butter shouldn't be too sweet. That's part of why I prefer chunky... the saltiness of the nuts themselves tone down the sweetness. But the best kind of peanut butter is the natural kind. No sugar or salt added... it basically just tastes like crushed and slightly creamy peanuts. Delicious.

How about you excuse other people's spelling mistakes? It was a legimate mistake, perfectly legible, and we all knew what she was talking about.

Stop being the Spelling Nazi.

What? Many, many people, including myself, like it when people give them calm advice about their repeated errors. For a while I spelled "opportunity" wrong ("oppurtunity"). Nobody told me it was wrong, so I kept doing it. I'd rather be told, so I practice what I preach. Calm down, little one.


Wasn't she the girl who thought 'towards' wasn't a correct form, & that 'toward' was far preferable?

Not to rub salt in the wounds, but since you insist on it, I must have a say.

No, I thought that "towards" evolved from "toward" and that both were perfectly plausible words. Turned out that one was used more in the states and the other is used more in Europe. Not knowing the origin of a word does not make my knowledge of how to use the English language any less.

It's an American colloquialism to leave off assumed endings of sentences. "Do you want to come with?" is leaving off the "me". They're grammatically correct, but seem very strange to people who aren't used to them.

Nobody's blaming you for being thirteen and dumb. That's to be expected. Maybe you're not dumb for your age, but you're still dumb compared to most people. Where we CAN blame you, even if you are 13, is if you act like a self-righteous know-it-all me-against-the-world little bitch.

I'm with you on this 100%. My brother's thirteen. He's dumb, and that's fine. But he's not a dickhead, so he gets respect.

I feel like I haven't changed a bit since I was 13. I must be an idiot. Or maybe I was damn smart when I was 13... MAYBE I have changed but I can't feel it.

Maybe I just need sleep.

Dusk - Llamas has a better understanding of the English language than you do, a point you only continue to prove by pointing parts of her post you don't understand and then having to have her explain them to you. Llamas is a smart girl who has grown up speaking English in an English-speaking country all her life, so it's natural that she'd be better than you. Your English is still very good, so why should you care? Hell, you ought to thank her for pointing out the slight mistakes you make so that your own grasp of the language can continue to improve.

Agatio - It is exceedingly rare to meet a 13 year old who is mature and has a fully-formed view of the world. In other words, yeah, thirteen year olds are pretty damn stupid. Not as dumb as ten year olds, and certainly smarter than five year olds, but they aren't all the clever. No matter how smart you feel you are now or how much you feel you've figured out life, you're going to look back in two years and realize that you were a complete moron. Don't feel insulted, it happens to everyone. Hell, I still look back at where I was a few years ago and think about how stupid I was.

And, to be perfectly honest, you are consistently displaying an overt lack of maturity in this thread. You're obviously not an idiot, but you've still got a ways to go before your intellectual capacity is fully developed.

Now, can we please get back to talking about salsa and sriracha? And how the latter goes well with almost everything?

Girls also generally mature more quickly than boys. I don't feel that I've changed that much since thirteen, other than becoming more comfortable with myself and being more outgoing.

I think we wore out those two... we'd long moved on to peanut butter! But that's even old. What does everyone think of salami? I love all kinds, but especially hard salami.

How can you tell?
Ha! Are you saying I'm wrong? Smarts are just recognizable. You're at least moderately intelligent enough to string together a coherent sentence and use rudimentary logic, and, on the internet, proper spelling and grammar go a looooong way. I can't exactly point it out because, like beauty, there are many different ways one can be intelligent, it's just a gut judgment. That said, I could still be wrong.

If you live in a fairly sizeable city you might be able to purchase it. It should be in any international grocery, and I even found it in my neighborhood Harris-Teeter (a moderately upscale supermarket chain).

Yeah, I just wanted to say "Can we please just talk about salsa!" But then I remembered how much I loved sriracha and got carried away.

I love salami. I eat it so often. My favorite thing to eat right now is white rice with salami and cheese. I prepare the rice on the stove, and while it's cooking i cut up the cheese (i like American cheese the most with this) and salami into really small pieces and then toss it all into a bowl. The hot rice melts the cheese, causing it to kinda clump together. It tastes so good, and its simple and easy to make. Fast to.

That does sound good. What kind of cheese do you use?

Usually just plain American cheese. But sometimes mozzarella or cheddar cheese. Its all good.

Hmm, most cheeses don't melt too well... have you ever tried using velveeta?

By the way, ShadowPyro seems to be proof that just because you're under the age 16, you're not necessarily dumb. And I think this allows more room for disliking the obnoxious ones.

Nope, i use whatever is in the fridge, so only American, cheddar, mozzarela, and parmesan(sp?)

Apathy, I know you don't like me, no need to broadcast it. I'm too French to stoop & answer any of your comments, my boy, so keep your stupid remarks to yourself, that will save you the embarrassment of interfering when you are persona non grata.

I had responded to this I thought, but now I can't find it.
JN pretty much hit it spot on anyway.

It wasn't because I don't like you. (Hell, I don't even know you that well. Now I don't like you. You're all condescending and shit) I was just pointing out that I thought you were wrong, and you were being somewhat of a dick about it. Instead of admitting you could have been wrong, you just tried to find something wrong with what llamas did, as if that somehow balances it out.
