Nom Nom Nom

........ does anyone else find this 'phrase' a bit gag-tastic or is it just me??

I've noticed quite a few people using it on here and every time I read it I just feel like 'ewwwww' .......... it reminds me of someone eating really loudly with their mouth open!

Please tell me I'm not alone in this (or worse, a teensy bit weird)!?!

I'm no big fan... I too imagine someone chomping their food!

It's one of those words which describes the sound - and I can't remember the name of that word.....anyone?

Edit - got it! onomatopoeia - I think it's this!

I quite like it to, and its meant to be a take on yum yum kinda stuff it in my face, yum yum, so to me its something thats simply tastes devine.

The history of the phrase, means something 'oh so tasty' and originated from the cookie monster from sesame street, as he would say om nom nom nom as he stuffed cookies down his gob.

THANK YOU for that information. I have always hated the phrase but now I know its origin I don't mind it so much.

(And yes, I do know how silly that is!!)

I can't bear it either, reminds me of that awful Churchill Ad with the dog making horrible eating noises I have to stick my fingers in my ears and sing when it's on!

I like it, it makes me think that there's something scrumptious being eaten, and that's always a good thought in my world LOL

Meh - that's another one! I didn't even know what it meant, I had to google it when I first saw it on here!

It's educational this site, in more ways than one ;-)

I'm an anti-nommer! I can't abide noisy eating in real life, so virtual noisy eating really turns my stomach...
