Are driving me mad and making me paranoid in equal amounts. Watch any cookery programme such as Masterchef and the "expert" panel are criticising meat as "overdone" when its still red,bleeding and with the whip marks from the jockey still visible. Fcuk me,did we not invent fire,electricity and gas just so we could heat and cook our steaks? Now I find myself going on the defensive when I'm in a restaurant and I'm ready for the ponce to raise his eyebrows when I tell him I want my steak "well done,pal". It shouldnt be like this,its what makes us apart from the chimps and the lions. PS You never see anyone asking for their fish "rare", so whats the fcukin difference? PPS Apart from the Japanese and that sushi stuff. But that doesnt count; try asking for a "rare" fish supper and see how you go.
