Any flavor you want, as long as it's deep fried

Some months ago, the company instituted a "Healthy Living" newsletter.

Now they've overhauled the cafeteria and done away with hot entrees other than things that are fried. Last Thursday, options included fried macaroni and cheese (which sounds like a bad joke) and fried ravioli (which is, I guess, OK as an appetizer if you're also drinking beer, but that's it). Today we had fried cod, fried chicken, and fried onion rings. And fried french fries (fried). There are also burgers (fried) and sandwiches (not fried--yet, but give them time). Bleh.

As one of my friends here remarked, it's like eating at a carnival. There are also scary clowns here, but that's another story.

Sounds like a hearty Scottish Diet. Throw in some fried Haggis, and fried Snickers Bars, and soon... everyone will be wearing kilts! Hey, maybe they'll start selling Tartan Beer and nice selection of Scotch! mmm. Scotch.

I'm southern. We'll eat almost anything if it's fried. Sounds like heaven.

Reading this induced me to make home-made beer-battered fried chicken for dinner last night. With french fries. Damn you.
