So this is what it comes to: In this modern day and age when a broadcast or cable network can make good money by throwing any old piece of crap up on TV so long as it has something to do with ambulatory humans cooking or eating something that at least vaguely resembles food, it takes a web show to actually start poking fun at the foodies that make up the core audience of every such piece-of-crap food show.Well, you know what? That’s just fine by me. So long as someone out there is doing something to deflate the egos and take a hammer to the pretensions of the foodie microcosm, I will support it. I will tell everyone that Foodies is set to premiere on March 9 at freefoodies.com. That it’s a web comedy which “follows the adventures of a group of L.A. culinary enthusiasts whose passion for food spills off the table and into their personal lives” (which, I grant you, sounds like the blandest pitch ever). And that you can find the trailer (which comes off much better than that previous quote) right after the jump.Enjoy . . .If “You’ve probably seen my blog” isn’t the defining quote of the Age of the Foodie, I don’t know what is, but my favorite line is still the one from what I have to assume will be the “normal” guy against whom the foodies will all be played: “I’m not like you. I eat McNuggets. With barbecue sauce. I watch football. The American kind. In a non-ironic way.That one was so good it could’ve been spoken on any street in Madison Park on any night of the week.Follow Voracious on Twitter and Facebook.
