Honey I need to drill more Holes in my Belt

This is one scary article. I was intrigued by the "Deep Fried Latte" and it all went downhill from there. I'd be lying if I said all this sounded disgusting but we really need less of this in our country. We need this type of food like we need a Segway in every drive way.


  1. Rick, the Minnesota State Fair is going on at the moment, and much like Texas, they also have a fetish for foods like this (as well as just about anything impaled on a stick). This year, a couple of the new weird food items available include the "peanut butter hot dog" (which I believe is as it sounds...a hot dog slathered with peanut butter) and also pickles brined in Kool-Aid.

    I am a pretty adventurous eater, but I say no thanks! :)

    OMG.. I feel like throwing up already.

  3. At the boardwalk here they have fried twinkies and fried oreos. I shared a twinkie with 4 other people, and it was okay, though not spectacular. I've heard good things about fried oreos though...

    Jean, some of those things sound stomach turning!

  4. I'm not even sure I want to know how to deep fry a latte!

    Speaking of Segway's, there's a really annoying couple in our neighborhood that ride around in their Segways. They do try to be considerate but I refuse to move out of their way on the sidewalk! There's just something wrong about those things.

  5. Just pulled this off the GTR site:
    Stop by our "DEEP FRIED" aid station at mile marker 40!

    WOW I can't wait to get to this aid station and get me Deep Fried Latte to close out the last 10 miles---wooo hoooo ...

    Huh? What?!!!!U think I made this up?!! U don't think they will have one of these aid stations...WTF?! ~!@#$%^&*()

  6. Bob: I think you are going crazy waiting to start your first ultra. Can I suggest a sleeping pill, for right now, haha.

  7. Rick, I was intrigued by your reference to a "Deep Fried Latte" (I had to wonder how one could deep fry a latte?) and of course had to read the article. NASTY. Additionally, you caused me to determine what hole my belt is buckled into! : ) Ha!

  8. lmao sleeping pill !!!

    ummmm I do need one, nah gonna just stay up ... and re-pack my gear
    again :-)

  9. we just had the oc fair here, and they had all kinds of deep fried sh*t there...oreos, coke, twinkies, etc, etc.

    i like deep fried stuff myself but i stick to the traditional stuff like golden crisp fried chickin.
