Weekend Link Love

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.

I’ve posted about this place before, but this video on the Heart Attack Grill is quite a gut buster.

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…
