Combo plate has new meaning

I think I'm gonna be sick. Can you read the sign? It really says "deep fried oreos & snickers."

From the article in the NYT:

'“This is a slice of heaven,” said Ryan Howell, 31, as he cradled his Combo Plate, which, for the record, consists of one battered Snickers bar, two battered Oreos and a battered Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup — all deep-fried in oil that is trans-fat free, thank goodness.'

I did not mention that the article is about food vendors at the Indiana State Fair who now have to abide by a trans-fat ban.

Like the Publican, I am always looking for someone worse than I. Certainly I am better than the deep-fried oreo-eater!

I don't know, I've heard that the deep fried Mars bar is supposed to be pretty good. Apparently it's very popular in the UK.
