This is why you're fat  
When kobold linked to this and I saw the url, I first thought that it would be some kind of rant site (Fatpocalypse-style), and clicked with some trepidation.

Lo and behold, it's nothing at all like that.  What it is is a glorious pageant of the worst, most nutritiously offensive and most fanatically fat-grease-preservative-laden foods imaginable.

Excellent entertainment when your brain is already half dead.  I've gone through about five pages already.

(None of this is why I'm fat, unfortunately.  I never had quite this much flair for food excess.)

Uh-oh, is this the jitters we were warned about?

K. That was interesting. You probably know this but a Turducken is a Louisiana tradition. But adding bacon to it just overpowers the other birds. I did like the big one with all the fowl and dressing. I do also hear that bacon and chocolate are good. But, no thanks. I've gotten away from bacon except on occasion now. It is too salty and makes whatever it is in too salty. This site looks like contest entries and winners. Funny. Thanks for the laugh.

I've been eating "uncured" and/or low sodium bacon for awhile now, and when I first started it tasted just exactly like regular bacon. But now I can tell a difference. Regular cured bacon tastes OMG-WAY-SALTY.

OMG I'm a horrible human being. I actually want to attempt to eat a couple of these...

*grin*

Deep-fried coca cola was always tempting to me.

Wait, what? Deep fried Coke?? How do you even do that? I'd want to try it just for the scientific inquiry :)

Ahhh. It still sounds yummy, but I'm vaguely disappointed - I had these images of Coke soup dumplings, except the outside was fried dough :) Yes, I know that's probably physically impossible. That's why I wanted them to figure out a way to do it!

(The appeal of this idea may be magnified by the fact that I am really really hungry right now!)

The funny thing is that some of these, while clearly over the top, aren't necessarily that unhealthy. The one with all the different kinds of birds and stuffings (the "12 Bird True Love Roast"), for example, isn't exactly a plain, skinless chicken breast, but a moderate portion also wouldn't be any kind of diet disaster, unless you're on a diet that prohibits one or more of the things in it (like Atkins). Because even though lots of the birds used are--overall--fattier than turkey, it looks like most of what's inside is breast meat, which has significantly less fat than "dark" meat. So, a serving of this probably wouldn't be substantially different nutritionally than a similar-sized serving of turkey leg and stuffing. Now, if this whole thing had been fried.... *g*

(All of that said, by the way...there are some things on here that are clearly awful for you, but that I wanna try anyway. The entry immediately above the "12 Bird True Love Roast" ("Deep Fried S'More On A Stick"), for example. :-)

My favorites are definitely the more offensive ones, though.

The deep-fried peanut butter brownie cookie dough thing: good GOD.

I was just about to edit my comment to say that I found something truly offensive that I want in my room I mean, town: the Bob Evan's Gravy Machine (on the last page; I couldn't find a link). Seriously, a do-it-yourself sausage gravy dispenser? WAAAAANT! *rolls away, chasing her Bob Evan's dream*

I have no reply to that, only... I still love that icon.

This is what I think when I look at the site. "crap, if ONLY this had ANYTHING to do with it!" ;)

Ha, EXACTLY!
