Ever wonder what writing majors do in class?

If there’s one thing I can say about the writing majors, it’s that we pay very close attention in class. Not necessarily to take notes on the lectures (although we do that too), but mostly, we wait for our professors to say something hilarious so we can write it down and savor it, or for many, Tweet it. These one-liners are what we live for, and they make the 12-hour day of classes go by much faster.

Here is my collection of quotes from this Winter quarter.

Lough:

  • “It’s like comparing apples to oranges and that’s not very fruitful.”
  • “Smells like tuna, tastes like chicken.”
  • “It’s a dumbass religion” – on Rastafarianism
  • “I just thought of a band: Sudan Somers.”
  • “How can you turn down billionairism?”
  • “Hyenas have dildos.”
  • “Jesus could not drive a stick.”
  • “This is one big incest fest: Incestival.”

Beth:

  • “Travis doesn’t play Second Life. He’s barely interested in his one life.”
  • “This is like food porn” – on thisiswhyyourefat.com

Griffith’s class:

  • “They’re men, all they need is a pulse.” – Kama

Fat-tastic

Everyone says America is the fattest country. I can’t imagine why.

I say screw that measly salad! Get your blood pressure pills ready and unbutton your pants, because I’m going to take you on a journey through the fattest of the fat.

The Cowboy Cafe Barnyard: Two 1/2 pound beef patties, pulled pork BBQ, bacon, 2 slices of cheddar cheese and a fried egg.

Bacon-wrapped Totinos pizza rolls

Corndog Eggroll

Ravioli stuffed with barbecued rib meat and mashed potatoes, sour cream, bacon and chives, all topped with melted cheddar, bacon, cheese sauce, green onions and shredded cheese.

I borrowed all of these images from my new favorite Web site, ThisIsWhyYou’reFat.com. Isn’t it funny how some things can make you extremely grossed out, but also strangely hungry at the same time? In the spirit of being fat, I dug up some old photos of creations made at Fat Wednesday–a family tradition that began at Robbie Ripoll‘s house more than three years ago. Here’s what I found:

An 8 lb. turkey burger in the making

Although I wasn’t at this particular Fat Wednesday (thanks  SCAD), Oz updated me periodically with pictures. They baked the buns with four boxes of bread, two for each half, and combined eight pounds of ground turkey (ironic?) to make the patty. Then it was time to dig in.

As you can see, the burger turned into quite the hot mess.

While we’re on the subject of the fattest foods ever, let take a trip on down to Taco Town!

Happy eating everyone!
