Three Little Pigs

Could there have been a better week for Anthony Bourdain to find what he declares "The Greatest Sandwich in America?"

At the Silver Palm in Chicago, which is only about five minutes from my office, incidentally, the bartender of this bar/restaurant came up with this monstrosity on the fly, late one night (no doubt deeply inebriated). Bourdain's commentary could be mistaken for the current stimulus bill without even thinking twice.

"This is a work of genius, in an evil way.... A two-fisted symphony of pork, cheese, fat, and starch... that sandwich is the greatest sandwich in America. This is the apex of the sandwich-making art... the sandwich that dreams are made of."

No doubt the late night, drunken hunger induced creationary process that generated this sandwich. is akin to the way that Barack Obama and his Democrat Socialist minions dreamed up the Stimulus Porkulus Bill that can only reasonable be referred to as the Generational Theft Act of 2009. No doubt this sandwich, consisting of smoked ham, a breaded pork cutlet, two strips of bacon, and two fried eggs, blanketed in a thick coat of gruyere, all on a brioche bun, is the only physical item that can compete with the amount of pork, fat and cholesterol about to clog the arteries of the American economy.

Now if you'll excuse me, the Silver Palm opens at 6:00. About time to go shove a massive amount of pork down my throat while America awaits a similar, albeit far less tasty, fate.
