It sure sounds like it should!
Testy Tummies on Air Force Two – Charlotte Observer
Imagine this: You’re about to set off with the secretary of state to Central Asia, a destination halfway around the world, on two back-to-back seven-hour flights in a packed 757 — and the first meal served is a teeming bowl of pork and beans.
Of all the contentious issues on any trip by the secretary of state, food tops the list. Despite the heroic efforts of dedicated and good-natured military crews to craft miracles from abysmal menus, Air Force Two’s food has become notorious.
“I don’t think you understand the depth of hatred for wing-dings among the staff,” said Jim Wilkinson, one of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s inner circle. “We’re not sure what kind of wings they are. Some people hate the meatballs, but most hate the wing-dings. They violate the laws of war, the Geneva Convention and the international convention on torture. They’re sooo bad.”
“The flan put to rest my theory that at least you could count on a decent dessert,” said Anne Gearan of The Associated Press.
“The meat, it’s awful. It’s much too cooked,” said Sylvie Lanteaume of Agence France-Presse.
“I’m not a vegetarian, but I’d like at least one meal without meat,” said Joel Brinkley of the New York Times as he cut laboriously through a brown slab of meat that has become known as maybe-beef.
“I’m British — I’m used to eating inedible food,” said Saul Hudson of Reuters, adding that he was “aghast” at the food during his first trip with the State Department entourage.
This is an outrage and should be stopped immediately! My tax money is paying to feed the press on their world wide junkets?!? Let them eat cake!
