Edible terrors

For a number of years James Lileks has published amusing review of culinary horrors from the past. Here is a selection from his review of a Knudsen's guide to eating. No wonder people were thin back then.

The new(?) site This Is Why You Are Fat proves that dietary atrocities are no thing of the past. The images are unlinked so I will share some of the more vile descriptions like Sandwich cake, described as "A layer of deviled ham, chicken salad and olive-nut spread between a whole loaf white bread surrounded by four packages of strawberry cream cheese." Slightly less nasty is the McNuggettini: A McDonald’s chocolate milkshake with vanilla vodka, rimmed with BBQ sauce and garnished with a chicken McNugget.

Others require the image to fully comprehend. Be fearful for our nation's medical bills.
