Deep-fried Gluttony

This is Why You’re Fat is a blog a buddy of mine recently shared with me.  It’s a collection of reader-submitted photographs of incredibly greasy/fried/disgusting foods.  Ok, some do actually look pretty good.  Don’t stare to long at these as your arteries may harden just from viewing them.  Check out just a small sampling of the foods published on This is Why You’re Fat.

Sad because dog meat is off the menu in Beijing during the Olympics? Fear not, seal penis is still available.

July 30, 2008

As we reported 2 weeks ago, the Chinese government ordered restaurants in Beijing to stop serving dog meat during the time Beijing hosts the 2008 Summer Olympics. Something about scaring the Western tourists, etc……

But, fear not, because niche parts of assorted animals can still be purchased at a new speciality penis eatery in Beijing. Besides horse penis with a chili dip, customers can order the member of a seal, which is apparently a delicacy. Before you make any condescending remarks, remember that cultures vary around the world in cuisine, music, art, etc., so don’t be so closed minded. All of you xenophobes can eat a dick.

Dog meat off the menu during the Beijing Olympics

July 14, 2008

Damnit!  There goes your chance to experience authentic Chinese cuisine.

BEIJING – Canine cuisine is being sent to the doghouse during next month’s Beijing Olympic Games.

Dog meat has been struck from the menus of officially designated Olympic restaurants, and Beijing tourism officials are telling other outlets to discourage consumers from ordering dishes made from dogs, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Friday.

Waiters and waitresses should “patiently” suggest other options to diners who order dog, it said, quoting city tourism bureau Vice Director Xiong Yumei.

Dog, known in Chinese as “xiangrou,” or “fragrant meat,” is eaten by some Chinese for its purported health-giving qualities.

Beijing isn’t the first Olympic host to slap a ban on the dish.

South Korea banned dog meat during the 1988 Seoul Olympics by invoking a law prohibiting the sale of “foods deemed unsightly.” After the Olympics, the ban was not strictly enforced.

Dog meat is also eaten in some other Asian countries, including Vietnam, the Philippines and Laos.

Chinese government issues official menu translations for restaurants in preparation of Beijing Olympics

June 18, 2008

As it readies for an influx of visitors for the August Games, the Chinese capital has offered restaurants an official English translation of local dishes whose exotic names and alarming translations can leave foreign visitors frustrated and famished.

If officials have their way, local newspapers reported on Wednesday, English-speaking visitors will be able to order “beef and ox tripe in chili sauce,” an appetizer, rather than “husband and wife’s lung slice.”
