Moon cake

Happy Mid Autumn Festival! Nobody wished me a Happy Mid Autumn Festival, I'm so offended. Of course most of my friends are like, not Chinese, so maybe that has something to do with it. Bastards, I celebrated July 4th, the least you could do is return the favor. Global awareness is a two way street! Actually, I don't even care. I don't celebrate it myself. The only thing that ever comes out of it is moon cake, and I HATE moon cake.

Moon cake is nasty. I'm all for being in touch with my Chinese side. I like being immersed in the culture. The best food I've ever had was probably something I had in Hong Kong or Taiwan. But moon cake is NASTY. It doesn't matter what kind of filling they put in it, it's just nasty. The texture is nasty, the taste is nasty, the feeling it gives you when it it's in your gut is nasty, the feeling it gives you when it's...nevermind, that's definitely nasty. How can anyone eat this crap? More importantly, how can anyone pay an exorbitant amount of money for this crap? Because they've been doing it for over a thousand years or something, I guess. Somewhere along the line you'd think people would realize that they're eating what amounts to some guy taking a bucketful of bean paste and bread crumbs and whatever scrapings he could find and mashing it into something the size of a hockey puck. With his bare feet.
