Meet The Thots

Greetings, Tater Thots.

This is the very first of our lil’ letters (designed special by Ben Wagner) that deliver the best, worst, and most decadent morsels from each episode of Food 4 Thot. (Plus, a few newsletter-exclusive treats.) Also, if you haven’t already, follow us on Facebook & Twitter.

This week’s theme is first times—first times doing butt stuff, seeing ourselves in literature, losing religion, and accepting Beyoncé as our lord and saviour. The episode is up on Soundcloud, and should be on iTunes shortly. Listen to it here.

This week, we’re lickin' our fingers for more Lauren Duca. This Teen Vogue writer and correspondent recently became the public enemy of alt-right masculist trolls and Fox News personalities (aaaand, we love her for it). For lil' taste, read her piece about the president gaslighting America, or this interview with failed Dancing with the Stars contestant Tucker Carlson, in which she calls calls him a sexist pig on TV. Also, she got Martin Scrotum kicked off Twitter.
Boy, bye


One thing we didn’t get a chance to dive into this week was Joe’s first boy-boner to D’Angelo’s “Untitled” music video. Fran might have been a little too young, but for the other Thots, MTV was gay porn when the Internet wasn’t yet a thing, and D’Angelo was a God among men. Poet Danez Smith wrote about a similar coming-of-age moment with this video in their fucking-beyond-stunning long poem on Gawker. Also, three out of four Thots miss Gawker, but we all want Peter Thiel to rot in gay hell, which is basically the same as straight heaven (lots of loose fitting tunics, no poppers, witches not allowed, filled with your annoying Christian friends from high school and also maybe Dennis), but that’s a story for another episode.  


"I've exchanged my belief in the Catholic teaching for my belief in poppers." – Joe


Out Magazine wrote about the launch of our podcast, now on their front page, fulfilling the dreams of 16-year-old Dennis who used to drive out to Borders just to read Out in secret.


We at Food 4 Thot make the promise to never say his actual name, so this week's nickname for the 45th President of the United States is...
Cornchip Hitler
