The Enemy

I'm channeling Shakespeare into this because my words have lost me.

O cunning enemy, that to catch a saint,
With saints doth bait thy hook! Most dangerous
Is that temptation that doth goad us on
To sin in loving virtue.
Measure for Measure

The Google cafeteria has the common decency to use one donut cut in half... anything more is completely over the top!

Somebody tell Paula those donuts ain't fried in lard.

And what self-respecting daughter of Dixie would eat a high-drodgee nated donut, anyway?

I'm at a loss. I don't know whether to be revolted or laugh. Both probably. Can we consider this revolting mess a step toward some sort of...I don't know...Malthusian leveling? Eating this dreck will kill these folks prematurely and clean up the gene pool? Or should they just get a Darwin award?

*Shudder* Heart attack on a plate AND a sugar high all at the same time.

I have read of such things in the past, though. There is some joint in the Dallas area (?) that claims to have invented the doughnut burger. An analysis showed that it has well over 2000 calories per serving.

What condiments does one use on this monster? Ketchup seems wrong. Jam? Steak sauce? Salsa?

I'm sure it *gasp* tastes interesting, but in the immortal words of Crocodile Dundee:

"You can eat it, but I wouldn't call it food."

In Deen's defense, this is probably the first time I have not seen her use half a jar of mayonnaise.

There are a few sports stadiums that serve a donut burger.

I don't think I will try one - ever - maybe if I was about to work a 12 hour shift doing something REALLY physical I guess.

About a year ago I was asked to attend the L.A. County Fair representing the Red Cross. We were within easy walking distance of a booth that was selling chicken sandwiches served on a halved Krispy Creme raspberry jelly doughnut.

Deep fried frogs legs were the side.

Everything was cooked in the same deep-fryer.

I'll let that sink in.

I know I should be horrified by this, but every time I read about the donut burger, all I can do is laugh. It's ridiculous and outrageous, and I wouldn't be caught dead eating one (although I might be dead soon after). But it's so ridiculous and so outrageous that I find it hilarious.

Everything was cooked in the same deep-fryer.

Fusion cooking?

"Fusion cooking?"

maurarose wins the thread. As for donut burger, well, blech. I'll try anything at least once, but I can't see paying money for that or wasting perfectly good ingredients.

Paula has officially jumped the shark.

maurarose said...

I admit that I love how loud and out there Paula is. She used to be a real cook, as I recall. Her food wouldn't have qualified for Weight Watchers, but I appreciate someone who's still willing to cook with butter and not apologize for it. But when she started using canned biscuits, I knew the aliens had gotten to her.

That is wrong! I think i'm going to look in to moving to thailand... somewhere far, far away.
