Food Books in My Pants

There was a recent Twitter hashtag meme#moviesinmypants” in which participants would append the phrase “in my pants” to film titles; for example “Stand and Deliver in My Pants.”

This led to a much more entertaining offshoot, “#foodbooksinmypants,” started by @amateurgourmet. Some of my favorites:

What surprised me most was the number of famous chefs, food writers, and purveyors who participated in this game. Apparently the originator was equally astonished:

  1. Adam Roberts
    amateurgourmet I'd just like to point out that a Pulitzer Prize winning food writer is participating in the #foodbooksinmypants meme that I started. WEIRD.

I think my “best participation” award goes to fine-food purveyor D’Artagnan. I hadn’t even realized they were on Twitter. I respect them for having the guts to join this somewhat off-color exercise from their company account, and for coming up with some of the best entries. I don’t think there’s many industries where you’d see something like this happen.
