Food Nicks

From XKCD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Summary[edit]

[insert percentages and things here]

Rules[edit]

  • Nicks are not food just because they represent a person. Cannibalism bad.
  • "Wilbur" isn't food just because that was the name of an animal somewhere. "WilburThePig" is definitely food, though.
  • "Joe" is not food related, though there may well be a "Joe's Bar and Grill".
  • Okay fine, Joe is something that people call coffee. But Joe is still probably a bit shy of "Definitely Food".
  • Don't try and stretch every word ever to be food related. For example, "unity" is just not food related.
  • Things do not count as edible just because you can make a cake shaped like them or something.
  • Only things that are actually food count as "Definitely Food". Like "Cheez". "Spork" and other things related to food preparation, storage, and consumption are, at best, "Kinda Food".
  • Things that are near unanimously considered too cute to be nommed must be classified as "Not Food". Examples include kittens, some of the fluffiest ops, and kindhearted mortally wounded bunny rabbits.
