What’s a Hot Dog and More Origins

It seems like I’m on a little blogging spree! Man! This is my 4th blog tonight! I’m on a roll! It’s because we are very close to wrapping up a project that we’ve been working on for the past couple months. The old Winty Crew thought we might try our hand at making some animations, because we all like to draw and we all have active imaginations.

This new project is called The Misguided Guide to the Origin of Everything! I prepared a little statement here about our project:

The Misguided Guide to the Origin of Everything is an animation series that follows two dim-witted kids, Willy and Tiffy, as they walk around their neighborhood, and encounter all sorts of weird characters, such as a crabby man, a weirdo in a pizza shop, a cat and a dog, their grampa, an alien, and so on. As they do so, they become inspired to ask questions about the world. Where does this come from? Where does that come from? Why is this like that?

Each episode will delve deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the world, from mundane and tangible topics (what is dust?), to grand and abstract enigmas (what is time?). Unburdened by reality and facts, everyone has an absurd answer to life’s mysteries, leaving their black and white reality, and entering a full-color world of imagination.

And here’s a little teaser:

New clips soon!

Fried Chicken Videos.

Today  on a never ending email chain that many Food Party blog contributors are on, there was a short but brief discussion about fast food chicken products, thanks in part to this lady.

This eventually led to me posting this internet (is this racist?) classic:

Followed by this wonder from South Korea:

I would post some of the videos from the times Popeyes and KFC were giving away fried chicken but ran out of chicken and people freaked out and ended up on the news, but then I would be here all day. I’ll end it with the following two things.

The first is a Pulp Fiction line I paraphrase from time to time. It’s from when Tim Roth and Samuel L. Jackson are talking about whatever in the diner at the end:
“Normally, both your asses would be dead as fucking fried chicken, but you happen to pull this shit while I’m in a transitional period so I don’t wanna kill you, I wanna help you. But I can’t give you this case, it don’t belong to me. Besides, I’ve already been through too much shit this morning over this case to hand it over to your dumb ass. “

And of course, Delonte’s classic KFC freestyle:

Peace and chicken grease.

People Used To Have Shorter Lifespans


I can barely make out the text, but I think that is cheese stuffed/covered hotdogs in a bath or creamed corn and mustard.

Madmen seems to be pretty popular these days and people are having viewing parties where they dress the part, drink the drinks, and pretend like it’s the 50′s. I don’t watch the show (yeah I know) but I do like to pretend like I’m from the 50′s, except in my world I’m a time traveller from the 1980′s. I digress.
I recently stumbled upon Retrospace, a pretty amazing site chronicling all sorts of stuff from times past. Considering my weird interest/obsession with f’ed up junk food, i went directly to the Gastro-Abominations section and perused the images. I guess to go full circle, is anybody having Madmen viewing parties where they are serving some of this gnarly cuisine? And if so, can I come?
Asides from the image up top, here are some more of my favorites:


I guess this is meat wrapped around celery covered in some sort of cheese?


This really isn’t that crazy, I just think it’s a cool ad and concept.

And this image which won’t show up for whatever reason. I can imagine some executive being like “Well have YOU tried it? That’s what I thought so JUST DO IT.”

The whole site seems to be full of treasures, and I’ve just barely cracked the surface. Here’s another one of my favorites, this one from the Retro Ads section.
Despite my appearance and tendencies, I was never a fan of Dungeons and Dragons. Believe it or not.

Anything on the site make you smile?

MEATOPIA 666

There once was a thing called “Meatopia”  (If I was a radio DJ I would be punctuating with air horn blasts the spaces between paragraphs, so imagine one sounding off now if you will.)

Don’t believe the hype. DON”T BELIEVE THE HYPE. I’m speaking for the little guy here. If you read a good thing about this farcical festival of food, you read an untruth.

Mista Bee buzzin with a review of the first annual “Meatopia” a so called food festival.

You’ve never seen a bee, a little flying bee, wait in a line of people to get some food before have ya?  But wait I did in several lines, waiting for a meaty morsel patiently, waiting waiting, and then as each food vendor ran out of food, you read that right, (food vendors out of food?) I was told along with all the people in line waiting “sorry we’re out of food.”

As each of the 30 “Meatopia” food vendors ran out, so on it went each line getting longer, and before a taste of food the vendor would inform the line “sorry all out.”

For two and a half hours I waited and was not fed a scrap. The bullshit of it all was the food was pre-paid for, I’d paid 45$ for 6 tastes. I thought innocently “Meatopia…six tastes…hamburger…hotdog..ribs…pulled pork…lamb…maybe some meat i’d never tried like rabbit?Yumms!  I’d bought a ticket online and I showed up hungry and with 3-4 hours left of this so called Meatopia. I expected to eat, heck I’d spent 45$, anybody living in Cleveland can feed their two kids for a week on that much cash. TRUE.

I’d say there was a hell and I was in it if I wasn’t a bumble bee.

Sad and Hungry, if it was Meatopia I’d witnessed the fall of it.

Final notes, I’d like to say damn Meatopia’s creators, kiss my bee hind now and in the next years to come jerks, and I’d also like to thank  Meatopia for ruining my afternoon. lucky I don’t sting ya.
