The Trickle - Health Food

December 14, 2009 - Brian Ferry

The Clogger

For those who know me, the title of this edition of the Trickle (TM) may have automatically been rung up to sarcasm. That's how it was intended. However, I must admit I haven't eaten at any fast food place for more than a week. (I go through phases like this every now and then.) I have, of course, had pizza at least twice during that period. But, I didn't eat a whole pizza either time. The topic of this blog, however, has nothing to do with me eating better for a short period of time. This blog is about something entirely unhealthy. The Clogger is a sandwich from McCulla's. Let's say it's generous. One of these showed up in the office one day. The recipient, not wanting to eat the whole thing, offered half to me. (If you need to ask why he offered it to me, I'll just say devouring copious food is one of my talents.) Hearing the name of the culinary delight, I accepted without hesitation. It's been a few days, so I might be a little off, but I'll try to list the ingredients. The bread portion of the Clogger was a little bigger than a hot dog bun. The contents were anything but contained in this. There were some things I just couldn't bring myself to eat - tomato, onion, pickle. A long hamburger patty, maybe half an inch thick, rested on top of four layers of cheese, several layers of cold cuts (I'm thinking salami, pepperoni, and ham, but not sure at all) and bacon. I don't know how much this sandwich shortened my life, but it sure seemed worth it at the time. I doubt people in the medical profession would voice their approval of the Clogger as a food item, though it should be good for business. Next, I plan to get to the Train Station and sample a Baggage Car. When I shared my story of the Clogger around the newsroom, there was no shortage of people who were convinced that a Baggage Car experience would top a Clogger experience. I may have to wait a few months. My cholesterol reading was a little high last time. One of those sandwiches a year might be enough.
