Today’s editorial cartoon is based on a reality show addiction in the Bearman household called “Man v. Food”. The premise of the show is food junky, Adam Richman, travels all over the United States to show viewers pig out spots in different cities. The last half of the show highlights a local restaurant with a food challenge (ie. eat a crap load off food or something really really spicy). If Adam beats the challenge he proclaims “Man Won” and makes a hand sign of the letter “M”. If he loses, he proclaims “Food Won” and makes a hand sign of the letter “F”
The wife and I are enamored with the show and Adam’s ability to indulge to the point that he gets the food sweats yet doesn’t pass out, crap himself, or have a coronary. We have noticed his waist line has increased over three seasons of the show. So thankfully this season, Adam has passed the torch to average joes and just hosts the show. Entertaining still, but not quite as much as wondering when the EMT’s were going to be called in.
Our friend James from Obscure Gentlemen webcomic tackled this same topic. Go check out his hilarious version here.
