Lunchtime Poll: The Awesomely Gross Lunch Club

Posted on

Yesterday, Friendly’s announced a new cheeseburger with grilled cheese sandwiches for buns. And it wasn’t even an Onion headline satirizing America’s conspicuous consumption; it was a real headline on a real site called Consumerist. I think the grilled cheese cheeseburger is ingenious — seriously, what took so long? — but I’m having trouble finding anyone else who doesn’t find it totally disgusting. Whatever, weirdos!

So instead, I’m pitting this triumph of modernity against another awesomely gross sandwich: The Pixy Stix/Cap’n Crunch sugar rush lovingly concocted by Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club. (Watch it here.) Vote below, and keep in mind that Ally’s bread slices would still have the faint taste of cured meat from before she hurled the pimento loaf at the sculpture.
