In much the same way that I was disappointed when I learned that "metrosexual" just referred to heterosexual consumerist gym rats rather than, for instance, bears, I'm disappointed that "foodie" has become synonymous with sycophants who couldn't distinguish Velveeta from sheep's milk gouda if it were presented by someone with enough celebrity.
