Deep-fried Gluttony

February 15, 2009

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.

Anti-theft Lunch Bags

September 12, 2008

Sherwood Forlee, a New York mechanical and aerospace engineer, as designed a bag to keep your piggish coworkers from stealing your lunch.  Pictured above, it’s simply a Ziplock bag with a mold design.  Guaranteed to keep everyone but people like say, Izzy and his brother, from stealing your lunch.  6 yrs. out and the pain remains…..Jerks.

1200 lbs. of cheese carved to make a Statue of Liberty sculpture

August 28, 2008

And captured with time-lapse photography for your viewing pleasure. I wish they hadn’t captured the atrocious music though. This gentleman, Troy Landwehr, is actually referred to as a “Champion Cheese Carver.” Signs you live in an opulent society:

1. Very, very large man.

2. Said large man has time and energy to devote to carving, not eating, a food for public display.

3. Once said sculpture is displayed, the unwashed masses not only don’t stone the large man to death for wasting food, they honor him with the title of “Champion.”

(The gristle spells out the word “Allah” in Arabic)

Diners have been flocking to a restaurant in northern Nigeria to see pieces of meat which the owner says are inscribed with the name of Allah.

What looks like the Arabic word for God and the name of the prophet Muhammad were discovered in pieces of beef by a diner in Birnin Kebbi.

He was about to eat it, when he suddenly noticed the words in the gristle, the restaurant owner said.

A search of the kitchen’s meat revealed three more pieces which bore the names.

The meat was boiled and then fried before being served, owner Kabiru Haliru told newspaper Weekly Trust.

“When the writings were discovered there were some Islamic scholars who come and eat here and they all commented that it was a sign to show that Islam is the only true religion for mankind,” he said.

The restaurant has kept the pieces of meat for visitors to see.

Thousands of people have already gone to the restaurant to see them since they were discovered last week.

A vet told the newspaper the words “defied scientific explanation”.

“Supposing only one piece of meat was found then it would be suspicious, but given the circumstances there is no explanation,” Dr Yakubu Dominic said.

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.”

Dumpster diver misses perfect score as fails to hold pike

June 18, 2008

Apparently, dumpster-diving for food is all the rage amongst people that dislike “consumerism.” They really get into it. Here’s some great quotes from a woman featured in the article.

“It’s so easy to eat for free,” she says. “The only things I buy are butter and milk.”

“Aw darn,” she calls from within. “A box of chocolates — but they’re empty.”

One man’s trash is another man’s dinner.

Beef with a touch of Hickory (extra dry)

Don’t serve chilled!
