walked into the kitchen, got a piece of celery, and then spread nutella on it.

Please advise.

Let's be clear.

Celery is an atrocity, but one that can be forgiven ("I'm on a diet").

Nutella is an atrocity, but one that can be understood ("Screw it. I've given up on life.")

But putting them together is wrong on every level, right?

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

I wouldn't do that to Nutella in general, but I would with peanut butter. Additionally, it would be equally against the principles of the universe to side with you over Jacqui. So, Nutella it is!

Re: The latest culinary *prepostrocity* I've witnessed
An entire 'hogshead' with 'celery' sticking out of its gaping maw like a 'cigar', or substitute 'tofu-headshape' for VEGANS as that! gulp

True, but removing celery improves anything as well.

Celery is great. Nature´s own flavor enhancer in stews and soups Why one would put nutella on it is beyond me, though.

Nutella is actually tasty. Especially with chocolate crepes.

And given that nutella is chocolatey variant of peanut butter, Nutellery doesn't seem like a stretch of a snack.

In that context I find celery is completely overwhelmed by Nutella so the combination is reasonable like, "I want Nutella but don't want to dirty a spoon or stick my finger in the jar".

If it isn't enough Nutella to overwhelm the celery, then yes, it is wrong.

I like celery. I enjoy Nutella. I may not want to put the two together, but I don't think that one ruins the other.
I'll support her right to eat what she wants to. cool

(Says the guy who just had celery sticks filled with Cheez Whiz at our New Year's party.
You've noticed that even Kraft can't bring themselves to call it "Cheese" Whiz, haven't you?)
