Hungry-Man meets World of Warcraft
I laughed and laughed when I saw these Hungry Man ads. The friend who sent me the pictures was convinced they were real, but considering that WoW Insider is the only reliable source for information on the subject, and their article is dated April 1st, I think we can all assume that they were a joke. But, they're still quite entertaining, and I wanted to share them with anyone who missed out.
According to the joke article, Hungry-Man partnered with Blizzard in early 2009 to create a line of frozen meals called "Gamer Grub". The good people at WOW Insider even went so far as to review each meal. This is one of my favorites:
"The first dish I taste-tested was one of my all-time favorites: Dragonbreath Chili. I have been waiting for a chili to truly be able to knock my socks off with spiciness. Even after just a few moments in the microwave, I could already smell the succulent alligator (beef) and beans simmering together in cajun spices. My mouth was watering before the chili was even finished cooking!
I was prepared for a spicy, I was even prepared for fiery, but nothing could describe the raw intensity of this dish. The mildly flavored alligator chunks did little to dampen the pure heat that radiated from the bowl."
Is that supposed to be a complement? Joke or not, the pictures and reviews are quite entertaining, and I still laugh every time I see one. Enjoy!
