OK, now this is disgusting.  With all of the obesity related diseases in this country, some genius comes up with this little treat.  Oh well, who needs health anyway?

Does that come with a side of statin?  Big E offers fried butter treat.

By L. Finch, Globe Correspondent

It’s the latest fatty fodder to make waves on the fair circuit – fried butter.

No, not fried in butter. Fried butter.

“Fairs love to deep fry food,” said Sue Lavoie, vice president for the Big E, the annual fair in West Springfield selling the fried butter balls. “We’ve been known to almost deep fry anything. Butter is a staple we thought we should try.”

The heavy treat is made by wrapping a frozen scoop of butter – plain or garlic – inside funnel cake dough and deep frying the concoction before topping it with powdered sugar. The result is similar to an already-buttered biscuit, Lavoie said.

Reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, said Paula Cushing-Pote, owner of Marion’s Fried Dough who sells the fried butter balls.

“Some are skeptical,” Cushing-Pote said. But once they try them, “They love them. People are saying they are to die for.”

Cushing-Pote began selling the treats at the Marshfield Fair in August. After experiencing popularity there and at the Big E, Cushing-Pote said she plans next year to sell the indulgence at other fairs across the state.

Big E fair goers with a hankering for more greasy creations can enjoy a whole host of deep-fried food, including deep-fried bologna sandwiches, deep-fried vegetables, deep-fried whoopee pies, deep-fried jelly beans, and deep-fried candy bars. Healthier options, such as a salad with grilled chicken, are also sold throughout the fair, Lavoie noted.

The Big E, an annual fall fair since 1916 that offers agricultural exhibits and live entertainment, runs until Oct. 3.

Human beings are fucking disgusting.

Prof. X, did you see the local news report on this?  It's literally drips with melted butter when you bite into it and break it apart.  Absolutely vile.

In related news, stock for a pharmaceutical company that is marketing a new obesity drug shot up today, as did Raditch's dialysis stock and a company that makes the staples for stomach stapling surgery.  Meanwhile, the health food subsector remained stagnant, while Schwinn and Bally's continued to underperform.

I didn't see the news story but my sister did and told me about how gross it looked.  Personally, I find it offensive to serve something so unhealthy and disgusting.  It's like the people who come up with these bright ideas have contempt for the human body.

When I think about it, it's as if "food" like this is offered to the public (who will gobble it up because they don't know any better) for the sole purpose of getting people sick so that they can be prescribed all kinds of pharmaceutical drugs for profit. 

This answers the question of why it's so hard to find healthy food when you're on a long road trip.  The most common choices you have are McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's or Dunkin Donuts.  The industry has conditioned people to eat this crap while making it more difficult to find healthy choices.

 A friend of mine took me to a vegetarian restaurant (which I thought I'd hate) a couple of years ago and it was unbelievable!  The soup was some of the best I've ever had and the imitation meats (beef, shrimp, chicken) tasted amazingly like the real thing.  Now I'm not a vegetarian, but I thought the food was fantastic.  Of course you won't find anything like that on the highway...wouldn't want people to be healthy with all of those pharmaceuticals to sell.

That's because Humans are lazy, Fat Fucks. Some people have no self control.
