A few mini-posts together...

I joke about Paula Deen a bit. I still do like her, despite all the dangerous things she has been making lately. But I am first to admit that she's becoming a parody of herself. The latest shocking thing that I saw her make was on her recent brunch episode. Most of the stuff she made looked tasty to me - garlic cheese grits (a stick of butter - fattening), a fruit parfait (seems safe, though looks can be deceiving), etc.
Then came this. Her burger (not so bad) between
two halves of a two Krispy Kreme donuts (WHOA!), topped with a fried egg (my chest hurts...) and several slices of bacon (What's that sharp pain in my left arm?). She told her friend, who sang at her most recent wedding and who got the first bite (nice way to treat a friend), "We're gonna get arrested for this!" So even Paula realizes what a bad idea this is!
Here! It'll make ya' FEEL good FEEL good FEEL good FEEL good FEEL good FEEL good*
Again - this is for a brunch. You probably won't see this on the menu at Gertrude's. Actually you don't find this on the menu at the Lady and Sons in Savannah either. Wonder why?

I have searched all over the web to find a video of this absurd, irritating ad (enough people on bad commercial websites have bitched about it). But alas, no one has had the foresight to YouTube it yet. So I just took some photos. Y'all know this ad. It's Golden Corral's "steakdar" ad.
ESP for steaks?
*EXTRA kudos to anyone who remembers THAT reference. Hint: anti-drug PSA, Saturday morning TV in the 1980's. It might've been local to Baltimore but I could be wrong.
