Sandwiches are not always beautiful,
nor are they fine.
I do not like sandwiches,
nor do I eat them all the time.

But I had to share this one with you,
thanks to the fantastic fools at Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me,
the NPR quiz show,
for those of you who have not inititated yourselves
into the utterly vital hilarity on Sunday afternoons
(or Saturday mornings, depending on your NPR schedule).

This is on a par with the vomit-inducing concoctions of the 1950's.
One word: gel-cookery
(Check out the Gallery of Regrettable Food in the case of further interest.)

In other words, read at your own risk.

Sandwich Monday: The Mac N' Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt

by Ian Chillag

Denny's has made Sandwich Monday before, and somehow we didn't think it could get any worse. But then along comes the Mac N' Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt, which comes in at 1690 calories, 99 grams of fat, and a word count of 7, as long as you count "N'" as a word. It's a patty melt topped with mac n' cheese.
Robert:This has everything you need combined in one convenient package. It's a Swiss Army heart attack.
Ian: It's like this is the second season of sandwich, and they hired a new, fatter actor to play "Lettuce and Tomato."

Ian: The fact that the bread is buttered seemed excessive.
Mike: Well there was really a lot of pressure to meet their calorie goal.
This is the last time we saw Mike.

 Ian: It seems like the entire Denny's menu is created by collisions that happened in the kitchen. Like one day a waiter carrying mac n' cheese bumped into the patty melt guy and this is what happened.
Peter: Yes. Same story with the French Toast topped with another customer's Mastercard.

Like the earth, it looks so peaceful from above.
 Eva: It is a pretty accurate cross-section of your arteries. Peter: I feel like I've traveled to a far future society, where they look at you with wonder and pity, and say, "You had to choose between cheesburgers and mac and cheese? Really?"

[The verdict: This is really, really tasty. It's embarrassing to like something this bad so much. If you can get over your embarrassment, and your love of being alive, this is worth a try.]
