"Dude Food" Is Going In The Dictionary, Men Everywhere Rejoice

It's a momentous day, ladies and gents. Well maybe just for the gents... The compound word "dude food" is being inducted into the Collins English Dictionary, and greedy male lexicographers everywhere are getting very, very excited.

Named as one of Collins' words of the year for 2016, dude food is defined as junk food such as hot dogs, burgers and the like considered particularly appealing to men. I don't know about you guys, but my life (and Instagram) revolves solely around getting as much of this hallowed dude food in my belly as possible. If I'm not double-tapping a buttermilk chicken burger on Insta, I'm standing in line for a decadent poutine platter likely to take years off my life.

As a wonderful homage to the dude food revolution, we at Twisted have scoured Instagram for #dudefood and here are some of some of the world's best efforts.

1. Burgers are a man's best friend

Introducing 'Ya Mum' from @zepickle, and boy is she one fine lady! Juicy medium-rare beef pattie, Ze chips with IPA beer cheeze sauce, smoked maple bacon and spring onions, jack cheese, ZP sauce and a good ol pickle. #zepickle #zepicklebrisbane

3. Why use bread when you have waffles?!

Waffle Burgers have arrived! 3 layers of crunchy sweet waffles, filled with pulled pork, coleslaw, liquid cheese, bacon, cheddar cheese and giant pickles. These will be on the menu from tomorrow morning, all day and night. If you want something that tastes just as good with a coffee, milkshake or beer.....this is it!

I'm just glad that the dude food revolution is finally getting the worldwide recognition it deserves. From the street sellers to the landed gentry, it's clear that juicy burgers, slammin' dogs and filthy nachos are the order of the day. Oh yeah, and next time you open a dictionary, make sure you give its newest recruit a little facetime - it's the least you can do after dude food gave you all this.
