The thing about fresh produce/meat/seafood is that you never know who, or what, touched it between the seed to the cooler. Would washing or cooking these items ever be enough if you really KNEW what and how something was contaminated?

After all, the seed sprouts from decay. The fruit and veggies hang at heights that cannot escape excrement and fluids from the large and small things that move. The farmers hands, laced with cuts and dirt, pick and rub in between their own feedings and “breaks.” The wheelbarrows and transport beds have carried things worse than oranges. Minimum wage factory workers have problems paramount to the trivial cleanliness of the food in front of them. The fish and meat was, at one point, fertilized or birthed with the necessary fluids. And let’s not forget the grocery/restaurant manager that has a thing for the new help…and counter-tops.

Is “knowing” better than ignorance? Of course not, or humans would starve. And it’s hard to argue against the notion that fresh food just tastes better. Thankfully it is the ignorant gluttony of humans that will make the implantation of our species so much easier. Like the salmon dusting the eggs, so have we, on all your crops.

  • How bout no.

    Really…. really? Come on, seriously? This is an informative submission that has nothing to do with anything that’s actually “scary”, it’s just a small writing about something everyone should already know of.

    3/10 for the fact that your grammar doesn’t suck dick.

      I don’t think this is strictly “informative”. Read the last two sentences again…

        WAIT. I had to scroll back up to reread the last two sentences. Then I realized that aliens are coming and humanity is doomed O___O and we don’t even know it. Very subtle (like the alien’s evil plot). Story redeemed.

      Did you not understand what the last few sentences meant?
      It’s not ‘informative.’ He’s saying that our food is dusted with human ashes or whatever naturally. Which means whatever we eat has human on it lol.

    This story had a lot of potential initially- the whole idea is creative as all get out.

    But it could definitely stand more detail, more expansion.
    Not to mention the end comes off as a little silly.

    Pardon the immaturity here, but apparently I have alien jizz on my fresh veggies.

    While this may send shivers up the spines of germaphobes, I wouldn’t qualify this as creepy. Also, I’m curious as to why you emphasize the word “fresh”. The reality of most food people eat is that it is not fresh and comes in contacts with many chemicals, and I think that focusing in that would be more rewarding for a pasta. I think that do make this work, and I’m not sure this could be creepy with additions and modifications to the pasta, you would have had to include much more details and examples such as growth hormones being used on animals, aspartame in soft drinks, preservatives and pesticides, for example. Keep writing, I’d love to read more from you if my crticism is appreciated :)

    I get that you were probably going for an Upton Sinclair expose’ type of pasta, but I really don’t think it hit the mark.

    This pasta had an interesting premise and perspective; food contamination generally creeps us because so much is under the radar – and as Sarah remarked, it could’ve been a pointed allegory on slapdash agricultural practices.

    Instead, I thought this pasta was constrained by length, and as a result felt more like a list of nonchalant facts: the slashes didn’t help. I felt that if this pasta took on a more personal, narrative form the morbidity would’ve been better delivered. IMO the twist also could’ve been better primed; as it stands, it’s abrupt and tacked on.

    All in all, interesting premise but flawed execution. 5.0/10

      You know, I’d love to hear what you have to say about my story. Authors can actually build upon your feedback. My story is called “The Dark Room” (it’s a few months old, but eh) and it’s under the “Zombies” tag here on the site. I’d appreciate it if you took a look at it and give me some feedback as well. Only if you want to though!

    Definitely confused as to how this one avoided Crappypasta, considering it’s got the classic trappings of one. The buildup seemed more focused of grossing the reader out than creeping them out, and the cliche “impending alien invasion” ending just felt like an afterthought thrown in to avoid the whole affair coming off like nothing more than a disjointed rant on what happens during food’s trip to your local grocer’s shelves.

    Nothing remotely interesting about this one at all. I agree that there needs to be a reverse “ADMIN FAIL” for bad stories that slip through the cracks and get published here.

    I don’t see what everyone’s problem with this pasta is. I mean granted, it’s a bit dry at first, but the twist at the end is awesome. It opens up a world of possibilities as to who or what is taking over. Is it aliens? Is it some ancient, prehistoric species reclaiming the world? What happens as we become infected and assimilated into this new world? Seems to me that some people are a bit closed minded.

    I suppose the story wasn’t all that bad, but it really doesn’t belong here. I was expecting this story to be scary but it was a major let down. The writing was ok though. It just not belong on a website for scary stories. Also I don’t exactly agree with your reasoning. I’d say 2/10 for effort.
