Does Not Illustrate: The Food Poisoning Incident

Go To

Nov 6th 2014 at 10:31:31 PM

I'm not sure exactly where the food poisoning is being demonstrated here. It seems a little cut off but it looks like bargain food on a rack, which may indicate food past its expiration date, but that's still not very indicative.

I don't have a suggestion to replace ATM, just bringing this to attention.

Opening; the image seems fairly poor.

How about something like this?

The current is very poor.

Unrefrigerated ham. But that's very hard to see. I don't like the clip art style of [up][up].

Hmmmm...I've got something in mind, but I dunno how well it will work.

Unrefrigerated it might be, but I think we can agree that it would be better if the image actually showed (a second picture of?) someone getting sick from food poisoning.

Don't think the current illustrates, and the quality is too poor to expect the words to have a meaning.

3 is better, but not great.

Okay, this isn't exactly what I was thinking of, but it's on the same topic, namely Alton Brown's song about the time eating shrimp cocktail at an airport gave him a case of food poisoning that hospitalized him for days.

[up]Is the musician actually relevant in that image? Seems to me that only the yellow poster carries any weight to the trope.

The song he's singing is called "Airport Shrimp Cocktail", talking about what happened to him on the flight after eating it. I couldn't find the original link that I got the idea from which has an actual snippet of the lyrics.

I don't think the image adds to the text there.

This isn't as easy as I thought it'd be. Most of the GIS results of "food poisoning" shows the symptoms which, without context, isn't clear that it's caused by food poisoning.

I'm a little reluctant to add another MLP:Fi M, since, as I've said in another thread, Fi M already has a ton of page images. But I think this does an okay job at demonstrating the trope.

I don't have it in front of me to scan, but there's a scene from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga where Ed and Al come across some mushrooms while training, and the next panel has Ed writhing on the ground in the fetal position with his speech/thought bubble showing nothing but a toilet. If anyone can find that, that might work.

[up][up]The first image is really artifacted, though.

Also, I'm not too fond of two panel images...

[up][up] Chapter 22, page 27. One panel reorder so it reads from left-to-right, and:

[up] Bingo, thanks! The MLP pic is pretty good too but I lean toward the FMA pic.

Either image works for me.
