Deep Fat Fried...


Weeping Jeebus on an atomic pogo stick!
What the hell are these Texans trying to do?

Here I'm trying to ratchet my intake back and hit the gym on a regular basis, but every year I read about the goodies at the Texas State Fair... My taste buds scream "Roadtrip!" and my wardrobe yells "Get your ass back on the elliptical machine, Tiny."

Look at these concoctions-

Now- correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Paula Deen the Queen of all butterfat, water, air and salt concoctions?
Wait, let me check...
Yep- Sorry Texas- Paula beat you to it...

After reading that I feel the need to go hit the gym for an hour or so... Either that or go to Hooters for a plate of 20 Cajun wings...
