The tumblr blog, This is Why You’re Fat, is changing my life. Seriously. Its craptacular stomach-turning absurdity has kept me from reaching for another french fry all week.
What’s especially clever is the way the site focuses on the food we eat, devoid of the usual sumptuous marketing presentation, rather than directly condemning those who create or consume it. All of us are implicated as a result. I even like the blog’s crude matter-of-fact title and their motto: “Where dreams become heart attacks.”
It’ll make you think twice about super sizing or adding extra bacon – that’s for sure.
Behold, for example, “The Hamdog,” which is described as “a hot dog wrapped in a beef patty that’s deep fried, covered with chili, cheese, onions, served on a hoagie bun topped with two fistfuls of fries and a fried egg.” (picture credit)
