Spicy Smoked Snacks

A little shoutout to Slim Jims, makers of those fine sticks of spicy hyperprocessed....beef? Not only have they been going strong since I was a child and was encouraged by many large WWF wrestlers to "snap into" one (it's a policy of mine to heed advice from people with 4x my body mass, regardless of the quality), but their business savvy cornered them the elusive market of drunk people and/or truck drivers. But the real reason is that I looked at the nutritional information on the back of my latest five-pack of Jims*, and the company considers one "serving" of Slim Jim to be...the entire box. As in, a quantity that might be eaten by a normal human being to eat. As in, you could conceivably stop after a few and just be like "No, thanks, I couldn't possibly have another 2/5ths." As in, feet of meat.


*Bad idea.

Slim Jims, a great food item (or chemical reaction?) perfectly marketed at 7-11 counters. Nicely sandwiched between Skoal and Skittles.

I fucking LOVE Slim Fucking Jims. All the new-fangled "jerkys" can kiss their slim asses.
