ort: usually orts; a scrap or morsel of food left at a meal.

We've all had orts, well maybe not all of us.  But those of us who have should consider ourselves lucky.  For those of us who haven't could and probably would willingly live off of our orts to at least have something.

Orts are a sad thing when you think about the sheer volume of everyone's combined.  They would probably be enough to feed all the starving people in the world.

We're lucky to find ourselves in possession of orts.  Not only unlucky, but possibly starving to find ourselves without.  So in the end, are orts a good thing or a bad thing?


  1. Nothing is inherently good or bad, just what we make it. Who would have thought that food could have such a profoundly deep message =P.

  2. I know. I hate wasting them. Thinking about all the peeps in the world who could eat our wasted orts makes me sad.

  3. It is sad :( I feel horribly guilty whenever food gets thrown out....what a waste :(
