I must warn you. This week’s linkage is all about food grotesquery, not to be discussed in polite company and certainly NSFV (not suitable for vegetarians)…
35 ingredients in a chicken mcnugget? I’m not the biggest fan of the Eat-This-Not-That guys, but they cut a mean little article on fast food secrets  over at Yahoo Health.
Some of you probably remember the controversial bacon explosion . In a similar vein, the folks at Smoking Meat Forums just plain violated culinary etiquette with a wad of Jimmy Dean sausage and creativity gone evil .
For another quick food blasphemy, check out the bacon turtles . (thanks, @suz38487)
Not weird enough? The River Front Times cooked up 20 unholy recipes , dishes so awful they just had to be made.
After eating that unholy jellied chicken, those bacon turtles, that sausage-wrapped Taco Bell burrito, and that quadruple bypass burger, you may be a little worried about your cholesterol. Before you drop three hundred bucks on a doctor’s visit, check out Griff’s cholesterol primer , posted in the MDA forum.
And finally, for fun, if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball…
