I love the pistol, the knife and the measuring tape. And the Dr. Pepper. Don't forget the Dr. Pepper.

That's the funniest thing I've seen since the opossum picture from yesterday.

That is awful. Pizza and McDonald's don't mix.

There are at least one place in Sweden where you can get a pizza and hamburger combination. In this case, a Calzone with a burger baked in. But then we have lot of weirds pizzas in Sweden. Such as pizza with döner kebab-meat or pizza with Bearnaise sauce on top...

The more i consider this, the better it sounds. That frightens me.

It is only a matter of time until the fast food mash up craze sweeps us all away on a wave of gelatinous cholesterol.

Yum.

Not much worse for you than pierogi pizza: mashed potatoes, onions sautéed in butter, cheddar cheese and bacon on a pizza shell.

Alright, the Dr Pepper is there to wash it down with, and the gun is there to shoot yourself in the head after you finish, but someone will have to explain to me what the tape measure is for.

Also: Glasgow speciality, Deep Fried Mars Bar.

The final picture, with the pistol and the finished pizza with the cheeseburger, melted cheese and fries, should become the official American flag.

Okay, my brain was saying this is so unappetizing and gross and wrong on all sorts of levels and my face was screwed up like I just ate a lemon as I looked at these pictures, but then as I was clicking away from the page (and even now as I type these words) I notice there is an inordinate amount of saliva I'm having to swallow down.

There is something unconscious about pizza and happymeal together on the same plate that is unmistakably feral, and answers some cavernous call from the id. Intellectually I'm apalled, but the baser instincts of Man crave this sort of thing. ...whut's up wit dat?

No wonder I'm so fat.

That slice with the half-cheeseburger sticking up like a mountain of artery-busting goodness? I want it. Now.

As a southerner, I take offense at that crack in the url. We in the south have wonderful cuisine and would never engage in anything resembling this delicious looking monstrosity, y'all.

Willie11, I'm not sure if you're serious or not. But I'm both a Southerner and the person who owns the blog in the FPP. In the words of Florence King,
"Southerners have a genius for psychological alchemy.. If something intolerable simply cannot
be changed, driven away or shot they will not only tolerate it but take pride in it as well."
The South does stuff with fried fats that Satan himself couldn't think of. Might as well be proud of it, because I really can't get behind the Confederacy and the Dave Matthews Band.

lampoil: i thought you wrote "my mom has those bowels."

which, if it had indeed been what you wrote, i would have favorited in a heartbeat.

"in a heartbeat" is a phrase that seems wholly out of place on this thread...

Enh. A local pizza joint sells, among other things, a steak and fries pizza, covered with sandwich-sliced steak and what I think are Ore-Ida crinkle fries, which is quite good. I wouldn't try it with McD's toppings, but only because I wouldn't eat those things in the first place.

(And for those in the Madison area, I highly the recommend the new cheese tortellini/pesto slice.)

Add some of these and I'm sold.

I’m too particular about homemade pizza to settle for anything less than my own cold rise dough hand-stretched to thin perfection and topped with my marinara sauce made from organic tomatoes and fresh basil, oregano and garlic... and I haven’t eaten a hamburger in over 30 years. But something inside me wants one of those things.

They should have made the crust out of hamburger buns, with all the other bits as toppings.

But then, of course you'd still have to wedge the whole pizza into a giant bacon cheeseburger, which itself would of course have to be battered and deep fried.

AMERICA! FUCK YEAH!

I want a pizza topped with mini-pizzas.

Pizza topped with bagel bites!

I'd hit that.

But then again, I'm happy to eat pretty much any take-out food on pizza.
posted by Greg Nog at 3:39 PM on October 27, 2007


Just saying... whoever did that knows how to bake a pizza. Even with the hamburger lumps, etc. under the cheese they got it just right. Its not easy to do that with a flat pizza.

Perhaps its just that my polish nana used to make Pierogi all the time, but that one actually sounds pretty good too.

She also got me into fried braunschweiger sandwiches.

Couldnt get me into neckbones and saurkraut, tho. That shit is straight from the devil's taint.

I stopped eating at McDonald's because, well, it's a space-age polymer, but I still absolutely loved the taste of the McDonald's hamburger.

The entire bun and stuff is ridiculous, but I'd buy a pizza topped with McDonald's hamburger patties chopped up and myabe some of the special sauce in a heartbeat.

Which would then, of course, stop after I ate it.

The Cosmic Cafe in Dallas makes a Pizza Mystica, which includes crumbled black bean burger as one of the toppings. It is so not like this.

I used to have the plates in the money shot pic. They were passed down from a step-parent. We finally broke the last one by throwing at a tree.

A few months ago, I was drinking margaritas and eating Mexican food, and casually remarked to my dining companion, "You know what would be awesome? Using a pizza as a dish on which you made nachos!" She agreed, but a few drinks later, I had all but forgotten my impossible dream.

Fast forward a couple of weeks. I'm walking with the same friend, and we stop in a place for a slice of pizza. Lo and behold right there, front and center on the counter, Nacho Pizza. God listens to our prayers.

This Mcdonalds pizza looks awesome as well, if a bit difficult to eat without making a big mess.

Thank you. I hope to inherit them as my own one day.

My breasts, on the other hand, are already much bigger than hers.

I see a real future in fractal-like foods. The "all edge" brownie tray, recursive pizza-on-pizza concoctions, fractal-cut fries that maximize crisp-to-starch ratios, fractal-shaped cereals or cookies to facilitate interesting milk-interfacing properties.

It wont end until the successful implementation of the hypertaco, a crispy Americanized corn taco shell that manages to cram nearly 1000 square miles of crunchy, bland shell into a 6x6" cube, by way of a dimensional anomaly. Preparing and filling a single hypertaco requires the same amount of energy our sun puts out in a year, and involves the direct manipulation of dimensional manifolds through the use of a carefully controlled array of miniature black holes.

Thanks, lampoil. Sometimes a stupid pizza gets stuck in your head and you can’t shake it loose. Now I’m all back to normal and couldn’t care less about a frankenpizza.

I laughed so hard at the McHappyPie tears came to my eyes. When I clicked on jrb223's YouTube link to Taco Town I watched, credulously, suprised how much like Samberg the curly-haired guy looked.

I've gained 20 pounds just from looking at this thread.

Nova Scotia has a thing for donair meat on a pizza, too. The sauce is made from evaporated milk, vinegar, garlic powder and sugar. Mmm--mm!*

*For certain values of "Mmm--mm!", including "Mmm--mm -- oh my God, where's the washroom?"

Years ago, there was a Japanese pizza menu photo that was a popular fark-like destination online. Pizzas with squid-ink sauce, mayonaise-like sauces, you name it, they had it.

Definitely should have broken up the burgers.

The gat's what makes it all so great - plus the 'quiz.'

The tape measure and the Dr. Pepper are probably there for scale. Either that or he's going to re-measure the length of his penis after eating the pizza.

I ate at Cosmic Cafe once since moving to Dallas over thirteen years ago. Once. Never again. I drive by the place semi-regularly. It's a cool looking house on Oak Lawn that looks like hippie gods barfed on it. The food is not fit for goats, but it is perfect for you if you're a health nut.

Of course, that was thirteen years ago, when I tried it, but something tells me my opinion of the place wouldn't change if I tried it again. God, I miss Mother Pearl's seafood. It was just down the street and you'd take a left. I had hoped to die of a heart attack while inside Mother Pearl's, eating Mahi Mahi fishsteaks and drinking beer while listening to Sonja Jevette sing about Tracy Chapman.

The tape measure is there, along with a stopwatch (not pictured) so you can see how much you are embiggened (and how quickly). The pistol is there so you can execute the chef for his culinary crime.

Meanwhile... often seen in these parts: baked ziti pizza. Kinda redundant, but chock-full of starchy starchy goodness.

Also: Glasgow speciality, Deep Fried Mars Bar.

When I lived in Edinburgh for a while about 18 years ago, it was the deep-fried frozen mini-pizza that made me shake my head at the chip shops there. I've talked many times about those nasty things since, and only just recently realized how pedestrian they were compared to the Cuisine of Selfloathing these days.
