Good Heavens. Can this be for real?



Never in all my travels through hundreds of cookbooks have I encountered something as impossibly unhealthy and disgusting as The Luther Burger. No, not even in White Trash Cooking.

That is hilarious and deeply, deeply disturbing. I've never heard of such a burger myself.

I groaned aloud in disgust when the Doritos came out...

Me too. And I'm guessing that pitcher is full of cherry Coke.

Some people will eat anything. Ever heard of deep fried twinkies?

You're just looking for an excuse to attack Martin Luther. :p
If you need strength to resist the temptation of making these, all you need to do is think of the name in the closing credits: booger999. Real classy.

Oh, and another thing. WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH THE CRISIS IN THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION?!?!?
Get with the program!

I have heard of deep-fried Oreos and Mars Bars...

I'm having chest pains just thinking about that video. And I thought *I* had unhealthy tastes!

Deep-fried. Something, anything can be made worse if it's deep-fried! I think I read once that in Scotland they invented something called the Deep-Fried Mars Bar.

Yes - deep fried Mars Bars do indeed come from Scotland...

...and they are being sold here in Singapore in 'British Fish and Chip' shops...

There's a place in Manhattan called "A Salt and Battery," (http://www.asaltandbattery.com/) which has the deep-fried Mars bar on its menu. I had it once. Once.

That sounds like the sort of place you'd find in New York! I remember wandering through the lower East Side once, and coming across a restaurant that specialized in mustard. "Only in New York!" as they say.

Too right. From my own minor exploration, there's a mac-n-cheese restaurant, a cupcake restaurant, and a (very good) chili restaurant.

I know there are more extravagant type places, but I work in publishing and I'll be going to grad school so I can't really afford to go out for lunch too often. But if I win the lottery...I'll be doing a restaurant tour daily.
