One of those popular engagement farming tweets is making the rounds, asking Twitter users to indicate where they grew up using only pictures of food. Below, you can see an example from our friend Bozi, who uses four pictures to indicate that he grew up in Serbia and North Carolina.

Last night I was driving back from the airport and realized that mine would be Cherry Pie, Deep Fried Smelt, a buffalo burger (burger made from bison meat, not burger with Buffalo sauce) and I guess smoked whitefish? I also realized that for at least a certain type of person, like, the type of person who reads Jalopnik, it would be much more revealing to tell you what kind of cars I remember seeing most commonly growing up. Note that these aren’t unusual cars that captured my imagination, or cars we owned when I was a kid, just cars that seemed like they were everywhere.
