Amazing Food Art by Carl Warner My mind was going to these places as I pushed my mashed potatoes around on my plate with my fork as a kid.

I enjoy these, and he's got a great imagination and expends a lot of effort making these, but II can't help but think that they're kind of kitschy.

What I guess I mean is that they're utterly unchallenging and easy to like, like dogs playing poker.

Totally. I think he's got a great career ahead of him creating margarine ads or something. Actually, I thought that they would have been better without any kind of digital trickery. I do like the fish water harbour though.

Children's books would be a good outlet for these, too. I loved them!

It's missing the classic mashed potato gravy volcano complete with the screaming villagers and the houses being dissolved in the gravy flow.

I must confess I never built the little village at the bottom until I saw Calvin do it in Calvin and Hobbes.

Food Art is awesome and is one of the coolest American contributions to the global art scene. It is a testament to our standard of living that we Americans have so much food we don't even have to eat it. We can make art out of it. I can assure you that more than one person from a third world country has expressed admiration in our abilities.

You should see the way they also marvel at our Penicillin Sculptures and some or our more cutting-edge AIDS Medication Mosaics.
