I suffer from a crippling condition know as extreme fucking food envy (EFFE). Seeing someone like this dude, just having a couple of those fries on that bench in Thessaloniki is enough for me to immediately get a box (no, two boxes! take that, bitch!) of those fries and eat them on the spot.

I'm more of a food addict.  If it looks yummy and smells yummy I want it even if I've already eaten a full meal right before seeing/smelling it.

Mine is a slightly different, it basically is "if you are having it, I want it".

Even if it's something gross?  Like fried Tarantula legs?  Yeah it's actually a thing. I saw it on Nature of things I think in Africa somewhere it's considered a delicacy.  Not that I would ever eat Tarantula.  Can't get me near those eight legged freaks dead or alive.

So, I'll have to treat you to a couple of scorpion lollies one day I guess ). They have them at Selfridges in London, I also saw them at Barcelona’s Boqueria Market and a couple of other places.

Those are actual scorpions encased in candy?  Wow I bet those things got one heck of a sting to them. 


Deadly lolly pops.

Or in my case all foods. I am so blessed with never putting on weight, I would be enormous otherwise.

Total EFFE sufferer here! Thank you for giving the condition a name!

It is about time I think. People around us are completely unaware about the hardships of living with it.

Being vegan helps against that. I don't bother paying attention to what other people are eating, as it's unlikely to be vegan. And if it is, it's probably something boring like an apple or banana.
On the other hand, let me loose in a store that sells all-vegan baked goods/pastries, and I'm liable to go crazy and buy one of everything.

Vegan world is my worst nightmare because I would probably break down and go cannibalistic in it.

Funnel cakes always look more delicious than they actually are.

I would still have at least n+1 of them if I saw you having n of them.
I also get super competitive at ketchup / mayo / mustard dispensers. If a see some dude doing two pumps of ketchup on his hotdog I will do three and one of mayo and mustard too. Every once in a while I meet another weirdly competitive idiot like myself at a hot dog kiosk and it gets messy.

Ketchup on hotdogs is wrong, as is John Scalzi's opinion of what constitutes a burrito.

And I don't even like ketchup on my hotdogs but I just have to "beat" the other dude at the ketchup pump. This is one of the ways EFFE manifests itself.

YES all the way!!!

we had a rule in my house that if you were eating something you had to share, because automaticly everyone gets jealous.
