Time for Silly Season

The New York Times featured an article last week titled "Foie Gras 
Palates, Hot Dog Pocketbooks" where it said:
"Food porn begets fast-food porn, which in turn has come to verge on 
fast-food parody, some of it perhaps intentional. The Web site Fancy 
Fast Food <http://www.fancyfastfood.com/> actually devises and presents 
recipes for seemingly refined, accomplished dishes that just rearrange 
and redeploy ingredients in items purchased directly from, say, Kentucky 
Fried Chicken.Or Domino’s. That chain’s American Legends Pacific Veggie 
pizza is the entirety of the shopping list for a dish that Fancy Fast 
Food labels Dao Mi Noh Chow Mein and that, as pictured on the site, 
looks like something in a proper Chinese restaurant.How crazy can it 
get? Do a Google search on “cupcake blog” and see how many pop up, 
including “Hello, Cupcake!,” “Cupcake Project,” “Crumbs and Doilies,” 
“No One Puts Cupcake in a Corner” and “Cupcakes Take the Cake,” whose 
inventory of posts includes “cupcake kebab how-to,” “cupcake license 
plates” and “cupcake bakeries on Twitter 

So what are the weirdest or most fun food blogs out there?
