I think it's the consensus among most people that anchovies look totally gross. They're grey and slimy they smell weird; and they're always placed right on top of a food dish that looks really good like pizza or Caesar salad. But I've just discovered that I kinda like anchovies and I think they have gotten a bad rap. They ARE totally grey and slimy and smelly, but yesterday I accidentally ate one and was surprised at how good it was with my salad. In fact, I think that if it didn't smell like rotten feet, it wouldn't have tasted as good contrasted with the already delicious salad. Classic case of ugly on the outside, beautiful on the inside. I guess it also helps that I'm the sort of ghetto Asian who eats Asian anchovies from a tin can smothered in tomato sauce with rice. Yeah, it's totally gross, but also totally delicious; especially if you're eating it while squatting on the floor of your apartment watching 80's game shows screaming "no whammies, no whammies!" That's Asian heaven right there.
