Foodie Pseudery (21)

A prize (yet to be determined) to the person who can explain what ON EARTH THIS MEANS:

For food enthusiasts, Fine Dining is not something to be taken lightly as it represents the definition of their culture, based on the newfound pleasure of conviviality, the hunt and curiosity for new tastes.

How does ‘fine dining’ represent the ‘definition’ of a culture? Why is conviviality ‘newfound’? Why must ‘Fine Dining’ not be ‘taken lightly’? Why capitalise ‘Fine Dining’? Why not use a dictionary to define precisely what words mean?

    The art of rhetoric once used to presuppose a certain mastery of the subject matter. Now, it’s just a simulacrum of words. It sounds as if it means something 🙂

      • that’s actually neither unreasonable nor unlikely — it may indeed be computer generated. there’s AI (artificial intelligence) that can produce ‘wire stories’ by scraping social media 😮
