These Nachos? Not Super.

Theory: society uses the word "super" too liberally.

Case in point: these are called "The Super Nachos."

There is nothing "super" about these nachos.  They are sold at a stadium, and I realize that stadiums are not the pinnacle of fine dining.  But on the menu, the Super Nachos are pictured with salsa and guacamole.  Can anyone tell me what happened to the salsa and guacamole?  Were they absorbed by the nuclear nacho cheese?

If the stadium wants to serve garbage, the stadium can serve garbage.  But please, have some respect for your customers.  No one is going to be tricked into thinking these nachos are super just because they are called "super".  They look like they were found in a dumpster behind a sports bar with really bad appetizers.  So let's rename them something appropriate, like "The Nachos that Look Nasty But Actually Taste Okay" or "The Mediocre Nachos."

If we all band together, we can put an end to the flagrant abuse of the word "super."
