HeadGarbage's Mission Statement

This site exists for one sole reason. Some may say it's a waste of time and/or a poor attempt at stupid humor. That's fine. But way too many people are so miserable and I refuse to be one of them. These are things that I think about and I think are funny. These are things that make me laugh. I hope some of it makes you laugh too. Life is way too short to walk around being pissed off all the time. If you can’t laugh at some of the stupid and ridiculous stuff that exists in this world, what’s the point?! I hope the content of this site, which stems from the ridiculousness of the world we're in, can help in some small way to help take the edge off an otherwise stressful life. As a wise man once said,"We're not here for a long time, we're here for a good time!" I think that was Gandhi? Live, LAUGH, Love...And enjoy your daily dose of HeadGarbage. Come back often and tell your friends so that HG can grow big and strong!

I Don't Like How This Shapes!

People living in the "First World" are spoiled as hell.  I don't know if they even use the term "First World" to describe the United States and most of Europe, or if there's such a term as "Second World".  I don't even know why they use the term "Third World Country".  I guess that's a whole other discussion.  But if there is such a term such as "First World" to describe privileged countries, then First World Countries are spoiled as shit!  There are millions of people in the world who struggle every day to sustain themselves with enough food to keep themselves and their families alive.  Alive!  Food as a necessity for life!  Can you imagine such a thing?  Then there are those of us in First World countries who are so spoiled by an overabundance and over-availability of food that we're not nearly happy enough with simple sustenance.  Not only can we pick and choose a food to fit our desires as far as taste, but we're so spoiled that we actually have shape options within the same food category so we don't get too bored with our delicious plentiful food.  Pasta is the most obvious example.  Are you kidding me with the pasta options that we have.  It's insane that people all over the world are starving, would literally cut off a limb at the opportunity to ravenously devour a bowl of spaghetti, yet we in our cozy homes in our First World countries are sitting there like,

"Spaghetti is so boring, let's have some bow tie pasta with clam sauce, mmmmm!"

Not only is bowtie pasta with clam sauce gay, it's a luxury that's taken for granted.  I guarantee you that when it really comes down to it, bowtie pasta tastes exactly like elbow macaroni.  Are we so spoiled and finicky that we need to eat food shaped like clothing accessories?  Shame on you for eating your bowtie pasta with clam sauce and washing it down with your white wine spritzer you First World bastard.  I hope you choke on your suspender shaped spaghetti and cufflink shaped meatballs!


  1. Don't forget about the potatoes...tater tots, crispy crowns, hash browns, seasoned fries, etc... This is what we fought for as Americans, the freedom to choose how our food is shaped. This isn't communist Russia. I'm American

  2. Musings of food freak:

    Pasta dates way way back. Pasta shapes go back as far as 1400 when they started to diversify.

    Think of the incredibly complex, time consuming, amazing foods that come from some of the historically poorest nations in the world: China, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and especially India.

    Lack of ingredients from afar (common in less fortunate communities) leads to creativity within the choices at hand. Eg.: coconut milk and raw fish dishes in the S.Pacific. There is even the hangover one, and they all have very basic ingredients but amazing diversity.

    Food preparation is an art. Poverty stricken people/nations are the creators of amazing art. Does their lack of abundance preclude creativity over the fire?

    I for one would not be too psyched on lasagna noodles in my soup and trying to stuff ricotta (now that is a waste of dairy in my opinion) into a macaroni elbow.

    Wishing an abundance of pasta shapes, colors and flavors upon those in need of substenance.
