What We've Been Missing 2: a digression

Do you remember our first "What We've Been Missing" digression? We do. In fact, we haven't been able to get the rancid taste out of our mouth. We are referring, of course, to the flavor of regret.

Oh! Had we but made other choices! Had we taken a different path through life's mysterious terrain, our palates would have been richly rewarded! Looking at culinary creations like these, we begin to understand the instructive "Yum, meat!" comments we receive so often here.

Please note: All "What We've Been Missing" entrées were prepared by actual (undisclosed) food establishments. With a straight face.

The Bristle 'n' Gristle Sandwich is a real mouth-waterer. Look! Some of it is trying to escape!

Is this a spread, or is this a spread? It's the perfect main dish for your next party of buzzards and other carrion-eaters! Just set the poor thing out, and let 'em pick and peck away.

The steak that doubles as a hankie. (Gesundheit.)

This only looks like flaccid, fermented cardboard on a bun. It's actually steamed or… boiled animal parts. On a bun.

Ugh. My first reaction is disgust, but then sadness to think that those pieces of flesh were once parts of an animal. Truly saddening. Poor things.

Is that a human foot I see, roasting on the grill in the second photo down? Hufu, yum! :P

Hahaha, you should do more of these posts. They're hilarious.

We will, Becci! The next one is scheduled to run on November 27. (No, really.)

I just threw up a little in my mouth.

Hahaha! Your 'trying to escape' commentary just made my day.
