Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Yeah, I couldn't find a chat thread to post this in, but I felt my story needed to be told. I was at the Texas State Fair today (spent a grand to watch my horns get their ass spanked) and I was looking for the most bizarre food possible to drown my sorrow in. I thought I had found it when I tried the Chicken Fried Bacon (which was pretty good), when I floored by the FRIED BUTTER stand.
Let that sink in for a second - FRIED. BUTTER.
What it is, is basically a stick of sweet butter (ever been to ryan's? That chain of hyper-obesity buffets? Think the butter used for their rolls), they cut the butter into 4 small squares. Then they batter it with sweet waffle batter, deep fry it, cover it in honey, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it, and top it with powered sugar.
It was DELICIOUS, I won't lie. I wolfed that shit down, and it was damn good. BUT, within seconds of eating it, and I'm not exaggerating at all, I felt extremely sick. Like, I probably could have shit out blood right there at the fair. It was as though my body was saying to me "dude, what the fuck did you just do? Seriously? SERIOUSLY?" and was punishing me. My father, who came to the game with me, also tried it, and had the exact same experience (delicious! Oh shit... gross...) so I think it's supposed to do that. It's a feature or something.
So yeah. Fried butter. Never ever eat it. Ever. But it's delicious. I just needed to share this story because, frankly, I'm still kinda shocked that FRIED BUTTER can exist.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention - I washed that fried butter down... with fried lemonade. It was the grossest shit I'd eaten/drank since I tried fried beer last year.
