Has anyone ever noticed that if someone uses the expression "here's food for thought," that without a doubt what follows next is total and absolute drivel?

It's almost as if they were sending a signal that it's safe to ignore whatever they say.

Not without a doubt. Sometimes it's not drivel. Sometimes it is. Sometimes it can be used facetiously or as a joke. Am I taking this too seriously? Lol

Similar to "i'm not a racist...but " "I don't hate gay...but"

Nothing good is going to come after the "but" as they prove themselves a hater.

I've noticed that when someone says that to me, the next thing they say has nothing todo with food. Now I'm hungry!

Lmao

Wow. Deep. That's food for thought. I shall pray for you, Brother Robotbuilder.

It sounds better than "I'm just about to talk some shit"

Obviously they mean "junk food".

"Sorry, I don't feed my mind junk food."

I will take note of this from now on.

Perhaps it is similar to the, "I don't mean to be offensive, but..."

No, sorry, that hasn't been my experience.
