Pork brains in milk gravy for lunch anyone?

Taken from the disgusting-yet-compelling site This Is Why You’re Fat, here’s one tinned product you wouldn’t donate to the poor and needy or even national hate figure Michael O’Leary of Ryanair, let alone eat it yourself.

If you can psychologically get beyond the fact that it’s Pork Brains in Milk Gravy without wondering why they couldn’t be upfront and just call it Pig Brains, it’s worth checking out the nutritional content of the ‘food’ (we’re using the word with a very heavy heart).

Cholesterol – 1170% of your recommended daily allowance. Ooof. The only thing it’s good for is as a slow method of suicide, saving yourself a complicated and expensive trip to a Swiss clinic if you feel like ending it all.

    You have to love the Americans for making this stuff. Imagine, someone was sat there one day thinking "I wonder what pig brains with milk gravy would taste like?" And *POW*, theres a niche market for you!

    I've had pig brains and they are very tasty - I don't know about the milk gravy, but it sounds nice - obviously, I wouldn't have out of a tin - not exactly classy, nor exactly Michelin star-award-winning presentation and freshness. But all you squeamish bozos who don't have a clue about haute cuisine need to get over yourselves. So it's 1170% of your daily cholesterol allowance ? So what ! Just have it every 11 days ! What's the big problem ? Good Lord, you people are easily scandalised.

    Bit of a mix in pig and beef there. Go for cows brains in milk gravy, a much purer product.

    I feel I should point out that the above picture previously appeared on The Internet on July 6th 2006 at 12.56pm. It was posted by Nicole Weston. There are no confirmed sightings of it prior to that date unless any of you know otherwise. Please, please get in touch at once if you do. Readers, please accept my sincere apologies for not having spotted it back then. My daily trawl of The Entire Internet was curtailed early that day when I went into hospital to have a colostomy bag fitted. My thanks go out to Lumoruk and ungulator. Peace and love, peace and love.

    It's 16:55, a Friday and the sun is shining. Marketing dept are in a meeting discussing their new product which is essentially "Pork brains in milk gravy". Question 1 - what do we call our new product? Question 2 - what time is it?
