WHAT is it about “Top 10” that is so hard to understand? Not much one would presume. Well, not if you are compiling the Eat Out list of South Africa’s Top 10 Restaurants. Then 10 can be 11. For this year, ladies and gentlemen, this self-congratulatory annual magazine tells us that its Top 10 restaurants, carefully selected by judges eating their way through hundreds of eateries, actually consists of 11.
Well, hell, why stop at 11 in your top 10? What about the 15 best rugby players of all time consisting of a list of 17….or 107 activities listed in 101 things to do before you die….fuck, let’s just call triplets twins!
Who this bunch at Eat Out think they are fooling by reneging on their commitment to publishing a Top 10 list is beyond any logic. And in the process, the credibility goes for a ball of wasabi.
For pray, if the well-eaten, clever, wise judges cannot even make a decision on a Top 10 out of a few hundred restaurants, who is going to believe the general credibility of the guide and its eateries?
Laugh it off, and pull my advertisement in next year’s issue.
