The ability to eat and enjoy food is one of the characteristics of human beings.As humans that appears to be the only thing we have in common as far as food is concerned. We differ in every other matter concerning food;while some like it spicy,acrid etc. Others like it bland, tasty, sugary,gooey and the list goes on. Some of these differences are attributed to culture, religion, class,taste or just plain old individual differences.

I found out that these differences have given birth to some extremely hilarious quotes. Please enjoy some of them:
