makes a real splash at the fair. I mean, it was only a matter of time before someone created this efficient manner of bringing your cardiovascular system to a screeching halt.

The New York State Fair didn't offer this, but they did offer fried oreos, fried ice cream, fried cheesecake etc. ad nauseum. Smells great but the aroma was the only thing I permitted to enter my body. Where will all this corn syrup and deep fat end? Probably at the cardiologist or endocrinologist. It's astonishing that corporations have convinced us that we NEED sweet carbonated drinks. No wonder American diabetes clinics are overwhelmed.
I live on Diet Coke, and I still think this is disgusting.
When they come out with a deep-fried
on a stick, I'll be there.
To watch someone keel over on the spot for my own entertainment. Definitely not to eat!
*blows whistle* Post count violation...number 4372 on the offense...10 yard penalty....second down repeated.
If you are eating deep fried coke and you laughed unexpectedly, what would it feel like to have it come out of your nose?
I heard about this on NPR about a year ago - - it was being hailed as holy grail of "fair food". I remember wincing when I heard it then, and it still makes me cringe.
While they're at it, can they come up with a frozen, deep-fried, double-stick of margarine and butter? I'm thinking hot fudge would go well on that.
Ahh, bernockle, an excellent query. Volunteers?
I'm with rocket on this one - two posts don't make it right.
In his defense, he is dumber than paint. Would you really expect paint to be able to adhere to the posting limits?
Hmmm, deep friek
is dusted with a white powder... Sure, it's sugar, Mr. FDA Inspector Fellow!
Sorry but I thought somebody might appreciate my posts. Nothing on the FAQ told me about post limit. There's no reward to racking up a post count. I'm just trying to participate, but if I've upset the interpol I'd be glad to crawl back into my lurker's hole.

So when's the "Deep-Fried Pepsi Challenge"?
Chicken Fried Bacon.
With cream gravy. "Needs more salt"
You have left the lurker's hole. There is no returning. If my vote counted, I would vote "yea" on your posts. They are fine posts, and we could use more around here. Of course, my vote has no meaning whatsoever. Just know I am with you in spirit.
We have a FAQ? Seriously...I was just pointing out the loosely applied-and-seldom-enforced rules in case (as was the case) you weren't aware. No harm and no foul and all that. Besides, Mr Tricycle seems to be absent a lot so we can do whatever the hell we want.

What bernockle said. Very tasty postings. Keep 'em coming.
Turns out we do have a FAQ. Here's Item 10:
Why is there a self-imposed posting limit? We want quality of posts to be as high as possible. Many Monkeys believe that the more you post, the less interesting the posts will be. We ask that you post one good, interesting and discussion-worthy post per day. If you think you have more than one, so be it. We're certainly not forcing you not to post. Make 'em good!
What bernockle said
Huh. If I had a nickle for everytime someone around here said that...
then I would have a nickle.
I just misspelled "nickel." Is there someplace where I can go kill myself?
They are fine posts, and we could use more around here. Of course, my vote has no meaning whatsoever. Just know I am with you in spirit.
Sure, but then you send the bill. It just don't seem right that you owl lawyer types can just bill anyone for sayin' things to 'em.
And its fine by me fwiw, DumberThanKit, there's not that many FPPs anyway.
Every time I post to the front page, I imagine in my mind that I am not actually posting to the front page, but am having sex with Medusa. I think it is a harmless diversion, and it makes it easier to post.
The Coke-laden bits of funnel cake are then dropped into a Coca- Cola cup before more Coke syrup is drizzled over them. The whole thing is then topped off with a dusting of powdered sugar. ... "I think it's great," Starr finally declared, with agreement from Fernandez, who suggested they follow their fried Coke with a deep- fried candy bar.
That right there is where I wommitted.
Which still probably tasted better than goddamn deep-fried COKE.
not unless they deep-fried it,
Is there someplace where I can go kill myself?
I vote Disneyland!
When they come out with a deep-fried Swanson Breakfast on a stick, I'll be there.
Will this do?
Also, HW ftw!
Somebody watched Jon Stewart the other night.
Lara, that has to be one of the most evil things I've seen. If it weren't for the intarweb, I'd only see frightening things like that on my occasional Buffalo runs.
I am going to the Maryland Renaissance Fair this Sunday. I plan to have the macaroni and cheese on a stick. Because, dude. Macaroni and cheese. On a stick.
I had the Buffalo runs once. Not pretty.
is at stake here. Hum. Wonder if this coke thing would work with
Fernandez, who suggested they follow their fried Coke with a deep- fried candy bar.
Thus assuring your arteries blow! They might as well just yank your heart out of your chest, deep-fat fry it, and stuff it in upside down. You'll be just as dead.
What disgusts me about this is that there are many nations in the developing world - including Mozambique, Guinea, and Somalia - where people can't afford a normal Coke, let alone a deep-fried Coke. That's why the World Food Programme has been deep-frying poor Africans for over 30 years. Help make a difference by deep-frying some money and sending to the WFP or just warm some oil on the stove and throw it over someone today.
Moe: It can flash-fry a buffalo in forty seconds. Homer: Forty seconds? But I want it NOW!
I had it at the California State Fair (along with deep fried avocado and a deep fried peanut butter and banana drizzled with honey sandwich) and I give it a thumbs down.
I second the thumbs down vote. I drove to the next county over just to try the fried coke. It was teh suck.
