Women Laugh Alone With Salad, But Chocolate Makes Us Sexy

Here’s what I’ve learned today from stock photos: I’ve never watched myself eating chocolate, but apparently I’m making a sexy face while I’m doing it. When I eat salad, I probably laugh, even if I’m alone.

The Hairpin has a round-up of excellent examples of the mysterious but well-documented salad laughing phenomenon and Slate has a slideshow of sexy chocolate. Enjoy. I’ll be eating yogurt in a gray hoodie.

    I am not a woman but I do make sexy faces and make suggestive gestures when I eat the following: Puffed Cheetos, Spaghetti, Lucky Charms, Neapolitan Ice Cream (half gallon), Minestrone, Gummy Bears, Ramen Noodles, Whoppers, and Chicken McNuggets. I actually have a video on YouTube if anyone is interested.

      What is a “sexy face” for a man? Like a Zoolander thing?

        “Who cares about Derek Zoolander anyway? The man has only one look, for Christ’s sake! Blue Steel? Ferrari? Le Tigra? They’re the same face!”

    And lest we forget, it’s hard for a woman not to look sexy when she’s eating a banana.

    You don’t win friends with salad. You don’t win friends with salad

    I used to make noises that suggested sexual arousal (according to an ex-girlfriend) when eating brown sugar glazed carrots.

    I cry when I eat salad and look like a zombie when I eat chocolate.

  6. Loias supports harsher punishments against corporations says:

    The only way you can get anyone to eat a salad is to convince them it makes you happy.

    Well, get a camera and a Toblerone, and let us be the judges!

    Don’t forget the usual:
    “I am really, really interested in this computer monitor’s blank screen”

  10. Johnny Longtorso says:

    I thought the “happy black women shopping” comment in the salad article was even better:

    As a man, salads make me cry, and all other foods make me smile.

    Stonyfield Chocolate Underground Yogurt, Meg.

    Ok, so now I’m going to be self-conscious when I eat a Dark Milk Chocolate Banana Baby. But somehow I don’t think I look all that sexy trying to eat a frozen banana, even if it is shaped like a penis and covered in chocolate. And yes, I do have them in my freezer, they are yummy! (banana babies!)

    Don’t forget that eating yogurt makes you exhibit the obsessiveness of Gollum, leading you to smack the empty container up against your mouth so you can get every last low-cal drop!

    meg marco is sexy period, does not require eating anything.
