Take Sausage. Add Bacon. Die.

No, not because Allah will smite you, but because this little recipe,
called the "Bacon Explosion" (or the "Human Heart Explosion", but I'm
not picky), contains "two pounds of bacon woven through and around two
pounds of sausage and slathered in barbecue sauce."

For those counting calories, the roll contains, "at least 5,000 calories
and 500 grams of fat." To put that in perspective, that's 2 and a half
days worth of calories, and approximately SEVEN to EIGHT days of
recommended fat.

Just so we're clear - that's more than a week's worth of fat. Makes this
seem like celery in comparison - http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6498304/

  1. That's like a heart attack waiting. No wonder so many Americans are grotesquely obese.

    A great tip to loose weight fast, "stop eating bacon wrapped in more bacon and stick to salads and vegetables."

  2. My (American) friends and I have a long-running challenge: Name a food, that is not a beverage or dessert, that would not be improved by the addition of bacon...

    Cultural beliefs and fear of obesity aside... not an easy challenge.
