Weed it and weap.

Laura Shunk championed dill on her recent list of five things we should see on menus more often, prompting this from Angry Taste, Bud:

You lost me at number 1. Dill? Really? A weed that tastes so much like ass it takes pickling brine to take the shit flavor out of it and you want to see more of it? Dill is on par with the dirty-sock flavor of saffron. How about this, you carry a little baggy of dill around with you, so that chefs in Denver don't start fucking up their dishes with dill.

And another thing, quit putting dill in housemade blue cheese dressing. I'm talking to you, Steuben's. Blue cheese can stand on its own.
