A Delectable Dilemma

Okay, dudes, I am going to tell you something and I need you to reserve judgment for a minute. There is something I have not been able to get out of my head this week, and it might be a really terrible idea. It also might be the best idea I have ever had. Are you ready?

Potato chip nachos.

Bear (bare?) with me here. I'm not talking about some 7-11 nacho cheese bullshit. At least I don't think I am. I haven't worked out the details. But CheeseFest is this weekend, so maybe I'll find the appropriate cheese there. What worries me is that if I attempt this and it is gross, I will have wasted both potato chips and cheese, which is sad, sad, sad.

But!! What if it is totally awesome!! What if the powers of potato and cheese combine in a glorious alchemy to form the most retardedly delicious thing that has ever happened to me!!!!

I have a feeling that what would actually happen would be a near-perfect expression of one of my favorite words: Grawesome®.

Grawesome, as you may have guessed, is the delightful intersection of gross and awesome.

Some examples:

I love these fucking things. I only eat them about once a year, which is just enough time to forget how awful they make me feel.

I used to live on this shit.

Are you getting my point, here? Further, grawesome doesn't only apply to food.

I'm pretty sure Caralee is the only one who will back me up on this, but KFed is a stone grawesome fox. *


So, help me out, dudes. What cheese would work in the context of potato chip nachos? Or, should I just forget the whole idea? I'm so curious!!

*I just realized that Britney Spears' entire life is basically composed of grawesome. Whoa.

To avoid sogginess, I would recommend Kettle chips and using an oven rather than a microwave. This could not be bad! I am getting hungry just thinking about it.

I've done this and I use my favorite chip, Munchos (available at crappy convenience stores everywhere).

Problem solved!!

Also, about Grawesome-- this is my new favorite word. Yay!!!

But I must respectfully disagree on KFed. I can definitely appreciate some grawesome celebrity dudes, but he just looks like a rat. And not a cute rat like Templeton from Charlotte's Web.

By the way, Dan loves the word grawesome. It is officially in our lexicon. Thank you!

Cheddar. And sour cream and tomatoes.

Also: KFed? WORD.
