Word of the Day: Foochebag


Friends and enemies alike, I think we can agree that this is the greatest portmanteau ever coined: foochebag.

The word, which reached my ears from NBC New York (via Eater), is a combination of foodie and douchebag, and it pretty much describes the behavior -- on at least one occasion, usually more -- of every one who writes, blogs, tweets or just talks about food.

Proper usage: "That foochebag Froeb writes about authentic tacos like he invented them, but when he goes to Mexico, all he 'eats' are frozen margaritas."
