I like gelatin-type things as long at they are homemade. My boyfriend likes jelly things so much I bought some agar powder to make into Asian jelly fruit cubes.
OK, here's my submission: anything at all in James Lilek's Gallery of Regrettable Foods.
LILEKS (James) Gallery of Regrettable Food
My favorite is The Unbearable Sadness of Vegetables, but it's a tough choice. Let's put it this way - I can't go to this website at work cause laughing bothers the other inmates.

What you are making will probably be very tasty. I've been tempted to make some sort of gelatin fruit thing lately but I can assure you it will not have olives or imitation flavor.

We need to start reminding people when they post these recipes as "healthy low fat alternatives!!" that by adding soda--since the water tends to cook off and the carbonation evaporates of course--they are basically just pouring in HFCS into whatever they are making. That might jar some sense into them.

These are for the most part people who don't think there's anything wrong with drinking a 2-Liter bottle of soda a day. Or more. They think people who talk about HFCS are kind of weird and misguided.

I loved it....and the thought now frightens me.
My father died at 63........
I remember toasting an Eggos waffle, and carefully squirting a shot of Parkay squeezable margarine into each square before topping it off with maple syrup. And feeling like I was having a healthy breakfast, because it was warm food, not just cold cereal. (Granted, I was nine at the time.)
This totally sounds like the place we went for dinner last night. We are on vacation in Florida and Disney resort food is not very primal. We went to Cocoa beachfront a few days and tried to find a great Sea food place. The best rated place was totally packed and we had a wait even with reservations. The food was total crap like out of a box almost TV dinner style. I asked for pecan encrusted cod with butter sauce as I was told that it was wild caught. It came breaded ( WTF?), and the vege side was soggy like it sat in water all day. It feels like we're spending thousands of dollars on a vacation to go slumming it. I'm so spoiled by the good food I make at home and am so grateful that I can cook from scratch with healthy ingredients while the most of the US thinks this crap food is good!

Cierra.... wow. That sounds awful. Send the recipe to Hungry Girl!!!!!
It's peep season! I used to put them on graham crackers and microwave them. Like a S'more without fattening chocolate.
Southern and midwestern food is bat, but when people try and veganize it. Whoa. A healthfood store near us used to sell chicken fried tofu. I believe it was gluten free as it was coated in nutritional yeast and Braggs aminos. It was bizarre- the tofu was really spongey and then the coating was, well yeasty. I liked it with mashed potatoes.
