I never tried durian.

Plain Ol’ Vic says he hates durian, a fruit from Indonesia that’s illegal in many places due to its awful stink. There are people who love it though, and say it doesn’t taste nearly as bad as it smells. I think the custardy consistency would put me off, but I would still like to try it sometime to see if it’s really that bad.

Has anyone tried durian, and if so, what did you think of it?

Why all the obsessing over bacon?

I’ve noticed bacon has suddenly become very trendy. It’s like the new cupcake. Bacon bits, bacon and eggs, bacon ice cream, bacon scented candles, and now this: bacon hot chocolate?

Someone gave this to me today. Seriously, who would drink this? I guess someone would drink it, but it won’t be me. It’s funny though.

Why is everyone so obsessed with bacon? And why is it being mixed with things like chocolate? Now sea salt, I can understand. It sounds weird, but dark chocolate with sea salt is great. But bacon and chocolate is like putting sugar on your steak. I’ll pass.

The most disgusting dinner I ever ate

ewww

Last night my roommate decided to make dinner. She made tuna salad. I like tuna salad when made correctly, but I noticed it tasted sweet and had a strange lard-like texture. I asked her what she put in it. She said she made it with margarine (because she hates mayo, same as me, but I like it in tuna salad) and SUGAR. Sugar, WTF, really? I almost spit it out right then and there. My appetite was completely lost and I couldn’t eat another bite so I when she wasn’t looking I gave the rest of it to my dog, Dexter.

I know this doesn’t have anything to do with this post, but this cartoon cracks me up.
