You never know WHAT the topic of conversation will be when I talk to my siblings (we're all just a bit... well, odd...)
When I talked to my sister last night, for example, the subject was..
"Evil Dead: The Musical."
(yep. It's a real show that my family saw when the went up to NY over Christmas... well, everyone except my mom, that is. DEFINITELY not Mom's thing... )
When I talked to one of my brothers this evening, the subject got around to bizarre food. We were having so much fun with this conversation, I thought I'd share it with you.
And so, for your shock/amusement, I offer the following:
In the great idea/inspirational category, we have MEAT CAKE. Now this one is just amazing. My brother has wanted to do this for some time now, and knowing him, he will pull it off magnificently. He promises to send pictures when he makes this.
In the "why in the world would someone do this???" category, we have:
the ham-dog (I'm sick just contemplating this one)
the Luther burger (in my friend T's estimation, this is a complete waste of a totally good Krispy Kreme doughnut. I agree.)
the Pounder (composed of a pound of beef, a pound of bacon, a pound of bread, a pound of cheese... and, well, you get the idea. I couldn't find a link to this, but my brother claims to have actually driven with 7 other guys to see a friend try to eat this. The results were not pretty...)
The Beer Barrel Belly Buster (this is just insane). For feeding a LARGE group of people, I can see the novelty/fun factor in something like this... but for ONE person to consume this?????
Ugh. I can't even imagine someone DOING this to themselves.
