Food, Ood, and Fud

Most all editable substances can be clasified as either Food, Ood, or Fud.
Many people make the mistake that the diffrerence is in the style or type of food, when actually it’s in the preperation.
Food is a good home cooked meal or a very nice restraunt.
Ood is a regular restraunt, high end microwavable meals good diners.
Fud is, well, fud. Fast food, “greasy spoon” diners, microwavable dinners.
There is also some gray aeria’s between each one. One example of a gray areia are diners. I’ve eaten at diners that might qualify as restraunts. I’ve also eaten at diners that qualify for the EPA’s superfund site.
