Alright you guys. I’ve had this project brewing for a while and may be ready to get it off the ground soon, but I’m stuck for a good name. It’s basically a spoof news blog mocking the paleo/wapf/low carb/etc overlap of communities… or “scene” I’m not sure what the boundaries are yet, I can’t let the fruitarians and vegans escape, and don’t worry, 180D will not escape either! I actually spend little time listening to and reading all that crap anymore, so I may just run out of material in short order, but I’d like to at least get out a few posts that I have sketched in my head. Someone just has to do this project. The terrain is so rich that it should just about write itself. I’m sure I’ll ruffle a few feathers, but hopefully while providing some badly needed perspective on how silly we all are sometimes. Anyway, I need a name. I started with The Nourishing Onion, because it will basically be like the onion news for diet/nutrition stuff. Then I thought maybe it should be more original, so I came up with the coconut, because it cracks me up to no end that coconuts are like everyone’s darling, as if we’d die without them, and of course it’s nutty… but it’s already taken on wordpress of course. Then I thought of the Nourishing News because it sounds serious and the plethora of nourishing everything blogs is a rich source of jokes around the house. Just search Nourishing + Blog sometime… but, alas, IT’S ALREADY TAKEN! (by someone who is of course dead serious) I may still use the nourishing onion, but inclined to go with something else, possibly the Nourishing Coconut. Whadya think? Otherwise, I’m stumped. Please probe the twisted and shadowy depths of your neural pathways contorted and clogged by untold hours of reading health blogs and threads, and remember, in a brainstorm, no idea is too stupid because it might spark an idea!July 17, 2013 at 1:36 pm #9255
Steven E, this is a good idea. I have given thought to writing a novel along these lines. I have even thought about publishing the first chapter (which is in my head) on here. I will give this blog name some thought.
Here are some ideas that might not be exactly what you are looking for, but maybe they will lead to something else (since we’re brain-storming here):
1) SixPack.com (since having sixpack abs is, after all, the ultimate sign that you’re in good health :))
2) EatThisDietOrDie.com : I think something like this might work, since all of the health gurus tell us that we are going to die a nasty death at an early age if we don’t follow their diet.
3) EatMyDiet.com (along the same lines as above)
4) BigPenisDiet.com I have been expecting somebody to come out with a diet that claims to increase your penis size. Why not you? Especially since it would be a spoof.
Ok, there are a few ideas. I will post more as they come to me.July 17, 2013 at 1:44 pm #9259
A few ideas off the top of my head.
Just Eat It.
Food For Thought.
Keep Calm and Eat.
Chill Pill Cafe.
It’s Just Food.
Putting On The Feed Blog.
Just Forkin’ Eat.
Remember…you said “no idea is too stupid.”July 17, 2013 at 1:47 pm #9260
What is the big penis diet?
Not that I NEED it or anything. Haha. I am just curious.

@Ironrod, Putting On The Feed Blog and Fork This. Are pretty awesome he he he… Fork this blog? The Forker… On further thought last night, I was thinking that the ideal name would be somewhat serious, or slightly ironic, or maybe only slightly silly. Maybe something that will become more meaningful or funny over time. I think I’ll maintain a serious tone and look to the blog in general, like you’d have to think about most of the content at least a little for it to be funny. Thanks for the ideas. I couldn’t break out of the few ideas I had, so I need some perspective and a little input. I’m not sure, but maybe a concept that unifies all the various factions somehow.July 17, 2013 at 2:02 pm #9262
@ThomassSeay, you seem like the type to do something like that. (That’s a compliment.) I’ll look forward to reading it. Like I said, my input may just fizzle out eventually from lack of input, but maybe I can end up taking news stories from others as well. There are whole facets of the scene that I’m not familiar with, like exercise/training. I’m going for more of a reporting angle with the blog and name, but those are just the kind of spoof websites I could use for sources etc… I may also include fake advertising for sites like that, which could get pretty hilarious and change all the time. It’s such fertile ground. Drop an idea and it just grows. I’m working on a WAPF article that is cracking me the hell up. Of course one mans humor…July 17, 2013 at 2:05 pm #9264
Well, 180D already has the big balls diet. I think mine are bigger and certainly with increased output. Not that it’s doing anyone any good. I hope every sperm really isn’t sacred :/July 17, 2013 at 2:32 pm #9268
@IronRod, I don’t know what that diet would be, but I can imagine all of the one-up-manship (snark!) that would go down on such a site. I can imagine progress reports that include photos of guys with sausages stuck down their pants.July 17, 2013 at 2:39 pm #9269
I was typing up some brainstorm word ideas and totally nailed it. I’m going to get the domain name before I post though. thanks for poking my brain.July 17, 2013 at 2:42 pm #9270
I know that you are right about that, Thomas.
Speaking for myself (and I know that you would agree with me here), I would rather view the progress pics on the BigBoobsDiet.com website.
(Hmm. I wonder if TheRealAmy is a member?)July 17, 2013 at 2:46 pm #9271
I’m glad that you liked a couple of my suggestions.
Good luck in coming up with material for your blog.
If I think of anything else, I’ll throw it up.
Hmm. Perhaps “throw it up” is not the best phrase to employ on a site that deals with healthy eating.
If I think of anything else, I will post it.
Oh, and BTW…I feel your pain here, Bro:
“Not that it’s doing anyone any good. I hope every sperm really isn’t sacred :/”July 17, 2013 at 2:57 pm #9272
@Ironrod, you are right. Maybe we can change it to TheBigPenisandBigBoobsDiet.com
Man, TheRealAmy won’t even post a profile picture, so how are you going to talk her into posting a picture of her boobs?
Despite any criticisms I might have, I must admit there were some good moments on Paleohacks. There was a period in which the women up there formed a club and started posting photos of their scantily clad torsos. I was hoping that photo of @relin might start a similar trend up here. So far no such luck. I still remain very thankful to @relin for that photo. That made my decade!July 17, 2013 at 3:11 pm #9274The Real AmyModerator
Well I posted a picture of my butt already so anything is possible.
Sorry to destroy the fantasy, Ironrod, but what I’ve got wouldn’t be selling anyone on the Big Boob Diet!July 17, 2013 at 3:40 pm #9277
Sounds like a good plan, Thomas.
“Man, TheRealAmy won’t even post a profile picture, so how are you going to talk her into posting a picture of her boobs?”
Heh, heh, heh. Perhaps between the two of us we can wear her down. ;)
A scantily-clad torso club? I like the sound of that. Perhaps I should begin visiting Paleohacks on a regular basis.July 17, 2013 at 3:45 pm #9278
“Well I posted a picture of my butt already so anything is possible.”
Wait! You posted a picture of your butt? How did I miss that?
It’s great to see you say that anything is possible in this regard. :)
(See, Thomas, there is hope.)
“Sorry to destroy the fantasy, Ironrod, but what I’ve got wouldn’t be selling anyone on the Big Boob Diet!”
But, but, TheRealAmy, are you really CERTAIN of that?
You Ladies can be SO hard on yourselves, you know.
Now, it’s just a suggestion, but Thomas and I would literally be honored to provide you with a second and third opinion about that. :)
