It appears that the good people at Maple Lodge Farms have come up with an incredible new offering. Its a hot dog chocolate eclair at once delicious and revolting. Wed love to eat it, if we werent also completely terrified by it.

Why do people insist on creating increasingly disgusting and gluttonous food? That doesn't sound remotely tasty.

I'm surprised Ultimeatums aren't out yet. A cheeseburger stuffed inside another cheeseburger with two deep-fried cheeseburgers as buns.


Regular Show - The Ulti-Meatum - YouTube

Or maybe Paula Deen has made this by now, who knows.

I think my cholesterol levels went up just reading this ! I was flicking through the TV channels the other day and caught an American show called "Man Vs Food" and was astonished at how many people seem to view food as a challenge to be undertaken, almost a punishment rather than a pleasure. This show made me feel really queasy and I was wondering what the attraction of food challenges are ? Machismo ? Showing off ? Endurance ? What ????

The show itself capitalizes on morbid fascination, like most of the reality junk on TV now. As for why Adam Richman does it ... death wish? I don't know.

I do like the Bizarre Foods show with Andrew Zimmern. Some of the stuff he eats makes me squirm, but I do agree with his premise, which is that we learn from other cultures by sharing food and participating in their customs. I'm not sure what a chocolate eclair hot dog will teach anyone about us. Nothing good.

I have only seen Andrew Zimmern online as we don't get his programme on UK TV and I like him. Then again I would .



I don't know how long that guy Adam Richman has been doing this weird show but the thing that amazed me is that though he is a little rotund he is hardly morbidly obese not what I would expect from someone who obviously lives on grotesque ginormous portions of deep fried foods, high in fat and cholesterol, stuffcovered with cheese, full of sugars and other horrors. How does he not resemble a weeble ?????

Does he go on detox diets off camera, living purely on salads and purified water ?!?!

I am obviously not the target audience for those "Freak" TV shows. I just shake my head in wonder and feel slightly sick .
