Food or Not Food: You Decide

February 21st, 2009 by Matthew Steinhoff

Oscar the Grouch from Sesame StreetSesame Street had a regular feature where kids were presented a few objects and they were asked to figure out which one was not like the others; which one was not the same.

For all I know, they still do play the one of these things doesn’t belong game. I don’t know. I stopped watching when they added Elmo. Seriously, he ruined the series for me the same way Jar Jar Binks killed the Star Wars franchise for me.

New Regular Feature: Food or Not Food

Here is how this game is played: I’m going to present you with a series of items that many people will consider food. One of these items, however, will not be food; true food, anyway. Your job is to figure out which of these items is not food.

Some Food or No Food challenges will be easy. Some will be difficult. Some will be misleading or otherwise obfuscated. No cheating, please. If this feature becomes popular, I may even give a prize to a random person who gets the correct answer.

Today’s Food or Not Food Challenge

Put Your Pencils Down And Pass Your Papers Forward

Which one of these is not like the others? Which one of these things doesn’t belong?

Post your answers below. Don’t look at your neighbor’s answers. I’ll know if you cheated.

  • I’m not sure I consider any of these food. My food generally has fur and feet (or feathers).

    Vegetables are what food eats.

  • Hmmm…I’m not sure what you mean by true food, but I’m going to take a gamble and say Contestant 1

  • And the answer is: Contestant Three.

    Why? Simple.

    If your food-like product comes in a plastic box and the largest writing on the box is ‘ALL NATURAL‘, someone is trying to pull something over on somebody.

    All the contestants except for Contestant Three are found in my backyard vegetable garden.
