The Simpsons' Food Blog Rap: Blogging a Food Blog

The Simpsons' episode The Food Wife aired last night, bringing the jaundiced cartoon family into the food blog world.

When Marge, Lisa and Bart start their Three Mouthkeeters blog, they immediately turn into food snobs, taking Anthony Bourdain, Mario Batali, and Gordon Ramsay (to name a few) along for the ride.

The best part of the show, however, had to have been the awesome song, Blogging a Food Blog. The song, written by sketch comedians Tim and Eric, was an homage to Empire State of Mind by Alicia Keys and Jay-Z. Grub Street interviewed Simpsons Executive Producer Matt Selman, who shared some of the lyrics:

I'm throwing down mad foodie game, knowing all the chefs' names

Rolling into K-Town for beepin' boppin' bulgogi

The hotties I chill with are sriracha and kimchee

Housemade terrines, my ducks are always confit

I braise with a billion more BTUs than I need

I cook a Thanksgiving turkey in a trash-bag, sous vide

Afumatoare in Brindisi Fed-Exes me salami

Don't scoop me gelato unless it's got umami

I'll be "Frank" like Bruni, "Ruthless" like Reichl

"Wiley" like Dufresne, and when I take the mike, I'll

Rhyme about radicchio, criticize Colicchio

Every pub is gastro, and all my beef carpaccio
