RIP Mr. Food

Art Ginsburg, the man known as "Mr. Food", has died at age 81 from pancreatic cancer.

He did a 90 second syndicated segment for over 30 years on a number of TV stations around the country before the Food Network and cooking shows were popular.

I remember seeing him on TV in Nebraska when I was a kid.  His signature saying at the end of each segment was "Oooo it's so good".

When I told one of my co-workers about Mr. Food's passing, he said "Mr. Food, meet Mr. Death".  Kind of inappropriate, yet I laughed.  Because I laugh at everything.
