Recipe from the Dark Side

I’m at the point where I can’t seem to get enough fat. Even so, this recipe gives me pause to consider the limits of that quest.

The ingredients combined with high praise for “cheese in a jar” makes this video a winner. It’s the perfect combination of funny “ha ha” with funny “eeeek” …

The Power of Cheese

This guys speaks well though much of what he says is rubbish. I don’t buy the “meat = cancer” or “meat = erectile dysfunction.”

Still, the first 10 minutes or so are interesting. Magnetising babies with sugar (can anyone verify this?) and the chemical properties of milk.

Mystery Meat

One of my all-time favourite movie lines is from Bill Murray in Meatballs:

Attention. Here’s an update on tonight’s dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight’s mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed “some kind of beef”.

 
Well the following video is about “some kind of beef” but I’m not sure Jeffrey Corbin’s guess really covers what this stuff is.

While I think this woman is sadly mistaken in the belief that obesity can be tackled by removing one food item from your diet (“your vice”), her contribution to food science in the odd form of carrying around a 4 year old hamburgers should not go unnoticed.

Funny that they don’t make the obvious statement: nothing can live on these burgers… not even mould.

The idea that the burger once in you is stuck there like some undigested bubble gum (another old wives tale) seems to suggest a bit more science could be applied to how the body works.

But that burger… those fries.
Gross and cool all rolled up into one.

If any 10 year olds see this video they will all start carrying around ageing happy meals.

Video Fat Rants

Despair and frustration… this woman has a point (youtube – sadly embedding blocked).

Here is one of many heartfelt responses …

 

But just for a bit of juxtaposition, here’s a different take (this is a response to a different fat rat) – and by different take I mean the usual response: fat = pathetic. What’s priceless is that this guy carries on to say that gluttony is a sin hence your hell on earth will be followed by an eternity below. Nice touch.

 

Now before you get totally depressed or start to smash your screen, Joy brings light…

 

And now that you are in love with Joy Nash.. one last video for the road:
