“Appetizers should really be called deappetizers because they make you less hungry”

Appetizers are served before a meal. An appetizer stimulates the appetite, but many people believe it should be called “deappetizer” because people get filled up on them.

“Appetizers should really be called deappetizers because they make you less hungry” was posted on Twitter by Nick Hall on November 22, 2012. “shouldn’t appetizers be called deappetizers? i mean, if i’m here i’m already appetized...” was posted on Twitter by miss piss on February 5, 2014. “Why do they call them appetizers? They ruin my appetite, they should be called deappetizers” was posted on Twitter by Nathanael Maytan on June 20, 2014. “Why’s it called an appetizer when it lessons your appetite? shouldn’t it be called a deappetizer?” was posted on Twitter by Lauren on July 2, 2018.

Wikipedia: Hors d’oeuvre
An hors d’oeuvre (/ɔːr ˈdɜːrv(rə)/ or DURV(-rə); French: hors-d’œuvre [ɔʁ dœvʁ]), appetizer or starter is a small dish served before a meal in European cuisine. Some hors d’oeuvres are served cold, others hot. Hors d’oeuvres may be served at the dinner table as a part of the meal, or they may be served before seating, such as at a reception or cocktail party. Formerly, hors d’oeuvres were also served between courses.

Why are appetizers called appetizers? Isn’t the whole point of them to temporarily whet your appetite while the main course is being prepared? Shouldn’t they be called deappetizers?
