My views are off the charts on my blog because of one article that is being viewed daily at the rate of 100 to 1 views over any other posting. I am being read from all over the world; Brazil, Indonesia, Australia, France, Japan, England, Canada, Korea, Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Italy, Germany, and many more places, but mostly in the United States.
My email address that appears on my blog, firstname.lastname@example.org is filled daily with insults and anger coming from WOMEN.
Is it one of my poems reflecting my genius, so lyrical and captivating? Nope.
Is it one of my short stories? Nope.
Certainly it must be one of my more political or theological satire pieces of prose? Nope.
It was a quickly done, throw away short piece. A snarky article about the most unappealing recipe book and way of cooking. It must say something more about the time we live in then I had originally thought. It is entitled; “DUMP CAKES, DUMP DINNERS…..COOKS TAKING A DUMP.” https://elbrookman.com/2014/01/10/dump-cakes-dump-dinners-cooks-taking-a-dump/
Here are some examples of my emails.
“You obviously don’t cook for your family. More than likely you don’t have a wife or girlfriend because you must expect your meals served on a silver platter. Arrogant idiot, Get Over yourself !”
This person must be so angry they forgot to use spell-check….
“Let me tell you several things. After 30 yesrs of marriage I have observed most families do eat box cakes. Also most middle american families do not even eat dinners as fancy or costly as dump dinners. Most women are not from scratch cooks. Women no longer have home ecimomics like I had in the 1960’s. Have you all priced everything you would need to cook from scratch ?? Get off your self ritous horse.”
(I really don’t know who the “you all” she refers to, but it is nice to know she thinks I have a staff of “you all” that writes for me.)
“ELBROOKMAN YOU ARE A FUCKING JERK ! MY KIDS EAT DUMP CAKES AND LOVE THEM, AND THE DUMP DINNERS TOO. YOU ARE A BIG ASSHOLE.”
(Tonya, besides the Dump Cakes, and Dump Dinners your kids love, I am sure they love kissing mommy’s Dump Mouth.)
“I want to take a big dump and make you eat it. Bastard. How dare you insult what I feed to my GrandKids.”
Over 100 emails are being ‘dumped” on me weekly.
What is wrong with you women feeding your kids hamburger meat that you don’t even take the time to separate or cook first so that you can remove some of the excess grease and so that it doesn’t look like cooked worms? Don’t you know about things like texture, taste, and presentation?
Women have suffered a nervous breakdown about food and should turn the cooking over to men and commit themselves into cooking classes or psycho-therapy sessions. Makes me wonder what madness the female gender is experiencing.
