Dad And His 8-Year-Old-Son Recreate Every US State With Food-Based Puns
“Don’t play with food”, “don’t make puns”… To hell with these bores, Chris Durso (of Foodiggity blog fame) and his 8-year-old-son made some food based puns with Foodnited States of America. Instead of just matching a state with a meal that “best” represented it (a concept Chris knows is done to death), they worked food into their names. “Kentucky” today, “Kenturkey” tomorrow! Finally, geography and food puns stand united! Well, united in a more dignified way than just making “Hungary” and “Turkey” jokes.
“It began innocently enough with, “Dad… What if you made States, but like, they were made of food, like?” My response was something along the lines of, “That’s been done to death already, son… Go to bed.” Chris recounted the genesis of the project. “Then, the heir to the Foodiggity empire added, “But what if they like had funny names like New Pork or New Jerky, like?” Now, we were on to something.” And not only were they onto something, they were onto something pretty. The food matches the shape of the states quite well, the colors are well are vibrant and harmonious, the background texture works well… all in all, a good job. Kudos fir font selection, too.
The project is still continuing, and recently got to the halfway mark with Cransas.
Great, now I have a hankering for a slice o’ ‘Piedaho’…
