Do you want butter with that, HONEY?

Obesity rates in the United States are at an all time high with at least 64% of us being overweight or obese, and 26% of those are obese. Listen honey, having babies and infertility hasn't helped my part of the equation:). Mama Henley is not one to throw a stone at glass houses, but what in the world are we doing FRYING OUR BUTTER?

How about chocolate "dipt" bacon? Can I slap you one of those? Can we say, "CLOGGED ARTERIES" three times each? I mean, really! What is this crazy world coming to these days?


Listen, butterbean, sugarcakes, sweetie pie, waddle on over here and I'll make you a Krispy Kreme doughnut burger so good you'll wanna slap your mama!


And if that's not good enough for you, my big ole pot of honey, I'll serve you some deep fried cookie dough with a deep fried Pepsi! Sugah, do you want fries with that?

Oh Mama Henley. I loved you before, I am even more loving you now. :) XOXOX Completely in agreement. Did you see Preppy Sue's post RE: Friendly's? SAME THEORY.

You are correct!! It is crazy the things people come up with these days to eat!!

EntertainingMom said...

Howling... but it's all OK with a Diet Coke, right??? ;)

Sooo bad. But like Jess said, if you drink a Diet Coke, it cancels the calories out!

Actually I thank you for this post as I was just about to get up for a little bedtimes snack. NOT NOW!!!

I have a major sweet tooth and love a good treat, but everything in moderation folks! A little butter is okay, but not deep fried!

Great post!

Have you checked out www.thisiswhyyourefat.com !?

The B Family said...

Too, too funny! I think these pictures may have been taken just down the street from my home?!?!?! That's why you need to go for the roasted turkey leg. . .a healthier choice! Hahaha!

We've certainly attracted some interesting vendors this year--and some even more interesting characters that actually eat this junk! Stick with the strawberry shortcake--the star of the festival!

I would love for you to do an etiquette post on our festival patrons. . . it would be hilarious. Where do these people come from???? (and P.S.--they are NOT representative of our town--our residents for the most part have great Southern manners and can be recognized by the fact that we actually get dressed up before we go to the festival--in cute strawberry themed jewelry and outfits that we spend all year shopping for).

Did you go to Dothan, AL because that looks awfully a lot like the peanut festival! they deep fry snickers amongst other things.......

Disabled Domestic said...

Those pictures are just wrong, wrong, wrong!

Henley on the Horn said...

Yes, Mrs. B, these ARE from the strawberry festival!! The vendors have nothing to do with your lovely hometown. However, they are real & they are truly hilarious!!! Stick to the strawberries, ladies:)
