Wake Up Call

Guy Fieri's Grown Ups 2-Themed Chili. Really.

Because apparently there's no justice in this world, the powers that be have brought together the cast of Grown Ups 2 (a perfect example of why sequels are almost always a horrible idea) and the world's most famous blond goatee, Guy Fieri.

That scary combination resulted in a Grown Ups 2-inspired chili.

It's a real thing. And it's first two ingredients are -- not kidding here, people -- butter and bacon grease.

We're already feeling sick.

But when you actually pause and think about it, as far as movie-food connections go, this one makes perfect sense. The type of people that can sit through two hours of fart jokes and burned out comedians trying to salvage the last of their careers (sorry, Sandler but you'll never top Happy Gilmore) are exactly the same people who would love a giant bowl of beer-filled chili with a side of "Double Fried French Fries" and Saltines.

The entire cast also appeared on an episode of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives this week, during which Sandler wore an Trollface "U Mad?" T-shirt and the entire cast pilled into Fieri's red Camaro and cruised around town. Oh, and they made meatballs.

If you're into this whole idea (or just want to see the recipe for some David Spade-inspired eats) the full Guy Fieri's "Grown Ups" Chili is below. (Click here to see a larger version.)

Looking it over, you'll see that it's nothing special, making it just as unnecessary as the movie which name it bears.
