Mmm, breakfast

From the excellent “This is why you’re fat” website, a collection of gastronomic monstrosities:


Sloppy Joe on a Krispy Kreme doughnut.


Louisiana Gator Dog.


Deep-fried smore on a stick.

PS, Trixie: I only post on Mondays when I wake up to find no new post. Oh, Monday authors: where have you gone?

    I quiver with shame-filled intrigue, which would be a great name for a doughnut.

    Picture #1 reminds me of the famous Luther Burger.

    So, have you ever actually eaten any of these things? I keep meaning to make a pilgrimage to the Minnesota State Fair, where you can get 69 different foods on a stick, including
    chocolate covered cheesecake on-a-stick
    cajun seasoned alligator sausage on-a-stick
    Pork chops on-a-stick
    fried jalapeno pepper cheese on-a-stick
    foot long pizza on-a-stick
    Frozen key lime pie dipped in chocolate on-a-stick
    corned beef and cabbage dipped in batter on-a-stick
    spaghetti and meatballs on-a-stick
    Scotch Eggs on-a-stick (hard boiled egg, wrapped in sausage, rolled in bread crumbs and deep fried)
    Walleye on-a-stick
    …and the other usual on-a-stick suspects (corn dog, caramel apple, etc).
    (via the MN State Fair website)

    Then again–the passerby in photo #3 is a strong deterrent.

    Wait, that works? If there’s nothing posted on, hmmm…. I don’t know, let’s say a Wednesday. Then Parrish will pick up our slack?

    Good to know.

    you know what’s wierd? i had a dream last night where there was a glazed donut covered with whipped butter. i didn’t eat it, but i really wanted to.

  5. I thought TGW was observing the holiday. Out of respect for our founding fathers you know.

  6. Natasha says:

    Wow, and I feel bad, when I eat a Crispy Cream once every few years.

    I had a dream two days ago that I got a pop-up book in the mail and when I opened it, it was filled with sushi, which popped up and was real!

    LP, thanks for the Monday post.

  7. LP says:

    5: Entirely possible, though we often have some sort of posts on holidays anyway. For example, who can forget Dave’s excellent post from the Fourth of July, 2006? Do click on the patriotic bear link – if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a bigger treat than a Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe.

  8. LP says:

    Agh, his link no longer works. Try this one instead.

  9. Jane says:

    Those are three of the most disgusting food pictures that I’ve ever seen.

    My favorite part about the county fair is the many options of deep-friedness (though I’ve never actually tried any of them). Do you know that they offer deep-fried Coca-Cola? Yep. I told the girl at the register that it seemed impossible to deep-fry a liquid, to which she answered, “Does that mean you want one?” Oh well.

  10. Dr. Freud says:

    LT and Natasha,
    How vas your relationship vis your parents? Hmmm? Vould you like to discuss dis? I see. Verrry interestink.

  11. Ginny Tonick says:

    Why aren’t there any drinks on that website? Bo-ring.

  12. Dave says:

    Yeah, we were kinda observing the holiday today. But these foods are awesome. Parrish rocks.

    (Actually, that first picture made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. Gack.)

  13. to which she answered, “Does that mean you want one?”

    And what was your response? This seems like a pretty aggressive county fair worker…

  14. Jane says:

    I believe my exact response was, “Uh. No. And you should really do a better job of up-selling your disgusting product.” And then I walked to the next food stand to buy my water.

    Back in Charlottesville the diner we used to go to had a much more enjoyable variation on the top photo–it was a glazed doughnut cut in half, filled with a scoop of ice cream, and grilled on the griddle. It was called a Grillswith (a mystery I never understood). Has anyone else (other than Timo) heard of this, or is it a C’ville secret?

  16. Timo says:

    My memory may be faulty on this, but my recollection is that Grillswith is two doughnuts, grilled as you say, with vanilla ice cream right on top, not cut in half. I mean, why would anyone want just *one* doughnut with ice cream on top of it, when you could have *two*?

  17. Jeremy says:

    btw, deep fried Coke sounds pretty magical (literally) to me…

  18. Mark says:

    sorry not enough time to link it right now, but our local place is

    click on menu

    Seriously good donuts, the ones I’ve had at least. I haven’t tried the Pepto Bismol doughnut yet.

  19. Mark says:

    holy jesus automatic links. This world is not so bad.

  20. Natasha says:

    Well, I suppose after eating a donut Sloppy Joe and a Grillswith, a Pepto Bismol donut seems like a logical conclusion: patently strange, but plausible.

    There are recipes online if you’re interested… It’s not actually deep-fried Coke, it’s Coke-flavored funnel cake. — they’re not frying a liquid but a batter containing the liquid. — Alas!
