    They mean the part of the chicken that has the breading/friend part on it. Which is the best part.

    There was an episode of South Park where they finally decided to quit hanging out with Cartman because he did something so unbelievably low, even for him, that they couldn't even pretend they liked him anymore. His crime? Eating the skin off all the KFC while everybody else was bringing the groceries in.

    I'm not sure why you guys are so down on hotdogs. Granted, my mother would only buy Hebrew National and Brandeis buys all beef so they can get everything from one supplier.

    The most disgusting thing I've ever heard of is that British sandwich with fries and butter. I also once saw a sign that read "fried seafood/ icecream," but I later figured out that it was advertising two items rather than one item that was too long for one line.

    I grew up with garlic icecream. Contrary to how it sounds it is full of win and victory.

    The Cornhole

    Corn on the cob wrapped in hickory bacon with two hot dogs and two Colby-Jack cheese sticks wrapped in ground beef.

    There is not enough D:

    I don't think that website even approaches the absurdity of turkey twizzlers. I mean, they've got something there which is effectively Nachos.

    Yes Nachos...

    with POTATO CHIPS.

    D:

    Err, I'm not seeing the problem. Its not like there is really a titanic difference between Corn Chips and Potato Chips.

    Corn chips are usually baked corn meal (think matzo without the bunghole clogging [which is why compote is a traditional pessach desert]), while potato chips are (deep?) fried, covered in additional fat/oil and salt.

    Yeah, it's great. All the marinade and stuff gets soaked into the skin and then it gets all crispy and shit.

    Of course, rotisseried anything is 10x better than fried anything.

    A burger chain in Oklahoma makes a burger using a half-pound of spicy southern sausage, topped with ham and bacon and with pepper jack cheese melted on top of it.

    Not only is it horrible for you, but you will regret eating it within five minutes of leaving the restaurant.

    Another one my Mom usually falls for is buying fruit juice. She sees the "100% Vitamin C!" stamped on the label on Ocean Spray's cranberry juice and I keep telling her it's not juice. I flip the bottle on its side and point out where it says *contains 10% juice from concentrate* - somehow this imitation costs more than the brand with 100% juice sitting next to it!

    Is that stuff actually juice when it has High fructose corn syrup in it?

    You did read the whole thing, right? It's a parody. While Pringles are, in fact, made from potato flakes, potato flakes are not dehydrated McDonald's fries. Sorry. You've just been had.

    You are actually lying to all of us. Chicken skin at its worst improves the flavor of the meat, and at it's best is a crispy layer of ever-so-slightly-fatty seasoned heaven on your meal.

    I agree with Senj. Chicken skin is foul. However, it is useful during the cooking phase. Chicken skin should be removed post-cooking, not pre-cooking.

    Especially when barbecuing, you need the skin on to keep it from drying out, or you need to wrap it in tin foil or some other shenanigans.

    You can order an X by X, where one X is the number of patties and the other X is the number of cheese slices.

    But really, that's a pretty silly way to gauge unhealthiness. I mean, I could order a bunch of burgers anywhere and combine them, and the potential unhealthiness from that is staggering.

    Indeed, and by burger standards In and Out is healthy and a decent choice. All natural stuff, small burger by modern standards and fries served unsalted by default.

    I've heard they serve decent stuff, but I really want to know how crazy people have gotten with that system. I mean, has someone ordered a 10X10? A 100X100? Where does the madness stop?!
