Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Freaking hilarious! A friend just sent me a blog link that has me laughing so hard I just had to share it. It's called This Is Why You're Fat, and its food porn at its most obscene.

This collection of "deliciously gross food" from across the blogosphere is simultaneously disgusting, fascinating, and sometimes perversely drool-inducing. Like, I could hurl at the sight of the gnarly-looking sandwich cake or the thought of pork brains in milk gravy, but a bacon and fudge danish breakfast sandwich looks pretty good...

The McGangBang, in particular, cracked me up -- it's a McChicken sandwich stuffed into a McDonald's double cheeseburger -- and my friend pointed out that it's become quite the cultural phenomenon. Read all about it. Don't you wonder who's behind this stuff?

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
