This blog is dedicated to spreading the truth about Jack Scalfani, a child abuser and racist who has run up modest celebrity on the internet through his “Cooking with Jack” youtube channel. For a long but by no means exhaustive list of what Jack has done, please see this post.

I’ve heard a lot of insincere “God bless you” in my time, but nobody can make it sound just quite as bereft of meaning as Jack can.
I’m sorry to say that patience is not one of my virtues, particularly, which is to say I never queue for anything if I can help it. This counts double for food. I’m happy to wait, but rarely (if ever) happy to queue. I understand a lot of the time this isn’t the particular fault of the place, if anything it means they’re doing something very well indeed. Foreign countries I’ve been to (Japan in particular) seem more inclined to this than others but it doesn’t make me more inclined to queue, especially if it’s something I’ve never had before. Jack, whose hatred of actual food is only surpassed by his hatred of getting off his arse, seemed naturally predisposed to having a similar view. But, it seems his desire to chase the Zeitgeist (and further, make it about him specifically) have overcome any pretensions to laziness. He also seems unaware that queuing for food is just a thing that is done in 2016 and doesn’t appear to be tired of overexposure. It’s so telling that when the camera is on him, he gripes and moans and whinges but the second someone pays attention to him, he agrees with their opinion.
Jack and Tammy share a very tepid, uncomfortable kiss in this episode (in addition to eating in their disgusting starfish-like manner of attempting to bring their internal organs to their food). I imagine it’s possible Jack has taken frequent comments about the Milquetoast nature of their relationship to heart and is attempting to show their affection, which of course only goes to show just how lifeless their marriage is. I don’t envy Tammy. The Newcomer whose name I made out as “PJ Perez” seems affable enough, I suppose. I wish I could get in contact with him and tell him to be careful with his daughter around Jack given Jack’s history of child abuse but a cursory internet search yielded nothing. You really have to wonder about anyone who is a genuine and wholehearted Jack fan, though: Does he know? I ask myself that a lot during these videos.
