A friend of mine recently alerted me to a terrific-horrific website called This Is Why You're Fat, with pictures and descriptions of foods which, with one bite, can make you instantly become diabetic. Or tachycardic. Or dead.
Some of my favorites are below:
The Ultimate White Trash Hot Dog, submitted by Mary Cunningham
A hot dog infused with cheese, deep fried, wrapped in bacon and fried again
The Triflebetes, submitted by Jaimie
A trifle dessert whose layers from top to bottom include: sugar crystals, cotton candy, Butterfinger pieces, melted Caramels, Twinkies, peanut butter mousse, Rice Krispy treats, chocolate syrup, melted candy bar, peppermint cookies, Girl Scout Thin Mints, white chocolate pudding, Crème Horns, melted butterscotch and Brownies.
Where The Buffalo "Rome", submitted by Joshua Rhodes and Carol
Triple-decker pizza stack (1 ham, 1 sausage, 1 pepperoni) layered with boneless buffalo chicken wings, topped with a ranch and buffalo sauce, sprinkled with bacon bits. Served with a side of ranch dressing.
This year, I am thankful for the ability to eat healthy food.
But seriously, check out the website, you'll be so horrified that it's terrific. It's like a train wreck that just doesn't stop.
