According to the tenets of Guy Fieri – Food Network Master Of Cooking/Restaurant Travel/Game Shows – the words ‘delicious’ and ‘yummy’ or similar generic descriptive devices aren’t sufficient to sell a product, whatever that product may be.
Frankly, I think a show called Delicious might fly.
DELICIOUS IS ON TONIGHT.
Gotta get home. Can’t wait. Order delivery, buy beer wine.
I agree to some extent that any word or words, when used too often lose their power to persuade. Shut The Back Door, Out Of (outta) Bounds, This Is My 3rd Favorite Of All Time said too often accompanied by the person saying the phrases looking/acting jaded – like oh Jesus, yeah okay, let’s shut the back door again, oh man…rolling eyes ready to sleep standing up, board stiff.
How ’bout: walked RIGHT in the FRONT DOOR. Walked right INTO it. this is DELICIOUS territory. YOU STAKED IT MAN. you staked it. IN the FRONT door.
‘Shut the back door’ implies you’re hiding something sinister. Walk in the front door absent shame. That’s my-take-away.
