The Chicken Finger Sundae Sandwich!

Wow, has it really been nearly a month since the last update? Dreadfully sorry about that -- things have been pretty busy over here. Okay, maybe not so busy, but I've been trying to spend more time doing other things (sleeping) and less time staring at the monitor. I've also been running all sorts of diagnostics and updates in the past couple of weeks, which has led to a lot of fun with drivers that has me tempted to record a profanity-laden audio rant in order to accurately convey my frustration to the masses. Excuses, excuses.

By the way, speaking of audio rants, I posted this on Wesoteric last week. I've noticed that I tend to repeat myself a lot in these audio posts -- I hope I don't use the same word that much in actual conversation! I can see how that could get tiresome. It's ridiculous.

So, here's today's article, which has been quite a while in the making: The Chicken Finger Sundae Sandwich. You may balk and blanch at the photos, but I'm totally not kidding at the end -- for some reason chocolate and chicken are amazing together. Chocochicken rules.

More articles to come -- I bought scary Thanksgiving cards, so here's hoping that I get that piece up before Thursday. And thanks for the reminder, Spoodles! I will indeed be posting more segments of The Absolute Strangest Christmas Story Ever Told shortly -- I just need to take more pictures to go with the text. I am committed to having the entire thing up before the December 25th holiday, to the point where if push comes to shove I'm just going post every single remaining segment on Christmas Eve. No doubt Santa will adjust his plans and stay in to find out how he features in the story, so you may not receive any presents until the 28th or something. The delay will be disappointing, but at least you won't get caught up in any insanity resembling the PS3 launch madness. Gamers across America should be fucking ashamed of themselves.

Okey-doke, seeya next time. 🙂

    "In the high school dance that took place within The Chicken Finger Sundae Sandwich, the cherries were the wallflower goths."

    This is the most beautiful bit of prose I've read all week.

    Also, I would have been all over that sandwich when I still ate meat.

    How the hell can you eat that disgusting thing and LIKE IT?

    Chicken with chocolate is just gross.

    The ONLY person that could possibly find it tasty is Shaggy from "Scooby-Doo".

  • the Jax says:

    OK, I'm intrigued. Though I know about Chicken Mole (a Mexican dish, usually made with chocolate) I've never tried it. I'm much more likely to grab myself some McNuggets and start dipping in choc. syrup, a la the scary sundae. I may try that soon, though my willpower increasingly keeps me away from fast food.
    It's not that outrageous; after all, ketchup is mostly sugar and even counts as sugar in nutrition references. Peanut or cashew chicken is a sweet, common Chinese entree. I'll let you know what I think!

  • Wes says:

    Yeah, I was going to mention mole (which is really pretty good; one of my coworkers at the bookstore served it up on one occasion) in my response to agustinaldo to point out that chicken and chocolate isn't necessarily that strange or unusual a combination. If you try it, let us know what you think! And chicken and peanuts go really well together too -- so well, in fact, that I often put peanut butter on my chicken sandwiches.

    Now you've got me thinking about doing a weird experiment involving chicken and peanut butter cups...


    I had to work on Thanksgiving so I tried to timer-record the parade.
    But, when I came home I found out that it didn't record due to a power-outage!

    If someone here has a recording of it, please, please help me. It would really save my Thanksgiving if someone, anyone were to send me a copy.

  • Wes says:

    Ack! I never watch that parade (let alone record it), so I'm afraid I can't offer any assistance there. You might try checking the torrent scene, though!

    I feel your pain regarding the working on Thanksgiving, by the way. I'm still at it myself!

  • Cool. It looks like someone responded to my SOS.

    Anyway, yeah work today was a real drag. Serving cafeteria-style Turkey dinner at noon-time then serving friggin' spagetti in the evening to a bunch of people who didn't eat it because they were full from eating a damned thanksgiving dinner earlier that day! (We knew damn well there was no point in making spagetti but they made us serve it anyway. What a fucking waste.)

    So, what drudgery do they have *you* doing on our once sacred "Turkey Day"?

  • Finally, read the article.

    Chocolate and Chicken, eh?

    I'll have to bring that one up at work.
