It’s Paula Deen’s birthday — so celebrate by eating bacon and butter or by watching the hilarious video below (hat tip: dlisted). On a related note, my Paula-loving mom just emailed me a recipe for something called “trailer park apple fritters” that includes Mountain Dew. At least that’s not quite as bad as Paula’s fudge with Velveeta recipe.

Suddenly, I’m craving hushpuppies. Who else loves Paula?
