Fat society

Hey yo, fat girl, c’mere; are you ticklish? Yeah, I called you fat, look at me, I’m skinny. It ain’t ever stopped me from getting busy. — Digital Underground

So I keep hearing about how we’re a fat society and whatnot, but I never really gave it much thought other than agreeing with the notion. Last night, however, I finally found the proof in the pudding. Velveeta mac & cheese that includes bacon bits.

Now, I’m a proponent of bacon, as I love the flavor. But I’ve noticed recently that bacon seems to be getting added to more items. The local Taco Cabana at my food court will add bacon to just about any item for an extra 99 cents. But as I’ve been told repeatedly, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.  And to prove the point, here are some things to think about:

  • Butter slices coated in sugar
  • Deep-fried twinkies/snickers/other candies
  • Grapples (apples crossed with grapes)

Those are all things I’ve seen, and seen people eat, with my own eyes. I can admit to trying most of those, out of sheer curiosity, but I realized “Hey, this is some nasty shit,” and would stop eating.
