Hooray for bacon! So many wonderful uses, such unparalleled taste, so few ways to go wrong with it! Right?
Except, perhaps, for this monstrosity:
Holy shit, that’s a lot of grease.
This, my friends, is a deep-fried, bacon-wrapped, Cheese-Whiz-filled hot dog. Go ahead and vomit now; I’ll wait for you to return.
