Southern Culture on the Greasy, Greasy Skids

Road trip!
One of the most popular items on the menu at Mulligan's bar in suburban Decatur, Ga., is the ``hamdog,'' a half-pound of hamburger meat wrapped around a hotdog, which is deep-fried and served on a hoagie topped with chili, bacon and a fried egg. The bar also offers the ``Luther,'' a half-pound burger served with bacon and cheese on a Krispy Kreme donut, and, for dessert, fried Twinkies, two deep-fried Kap'n Crunch-coated Twinkies topped with chocolate and cherry sauce.

Ah, this explains why I have seen so many people driving themselves around in carts in Walmart...

I can't wait for Mike Judge's Idiocracy to come out. But be quiet, or libertarians will get mad at you for thinking that these fucking idiots are fucking idiots.

Well, well, it looks like the whole country is gettin' southernized:

The new KFC Famous Bowls(TM) offer a hearty meal "just like mom used to make," with layers of mashed potatoes, sweet corn and bite sized crispy chicken, drizzled with signature home style gravy and topped off with a three- cheese blend -- in one convenient bowl.

The ads for this are seriously revolting. Mashed potatoes, corn, chicken tenders, gravy and cheese, all mixed together in a bucket! I mean, bowl!

And "just like mom used to make"? Only if my mother is, in fact, Mr. Creosote from Monty Python's "Meaning of Life."

And, yes, Idiocracy will be good. I'm just surprised he felt the need to set it in the future.

Isn't "Hamdog" one of W's nicknames for Cheney?

At least Mulligan's is doing it's part to educate the public with this disclosure at the bottom of their menu: ***We here at MULLIGANS hope you have the sense to realize that although delicious, we do not recommend eating fried foods every day and remind you to exercise regularly and get an annual physical!!

That disclaimer doesn't go far enough, WB. I want to see them issue their patrons instructions on wiping their asses, too. Of course, maybe the Hamdog stops things up like Elvis in the final days....
