Foodception: Food Within Food Within Food

There are two things in this world that I love more than anything else:

1) Taco Bell nacho cheese
2) Ellen Page movies

I even have this biweekly ritual, every Tuesday and Thursday, where I park in front of the TV and eat $18 worth of Taco Bell while watching the extended director’s cut of “Inception.” This might seem a bit indulgent to some, and medical professionals would probably call it obsessive compulsive, but to me, both represent the perfect actualization of modern American culture.

She’s played so many diverse roles, she’s incredibly humble, and she has the body of work to be considered one of our generation’s best indie actors. And that liquid gold is so decadently salty and spicy and yellow and always piping hot. Taco Bell nacho cheese retains heat better than any substance on Earth. The military needs to weaponize it, immediately.

So I started thinking, why can’t I combine these things? I mean, multimedia entertainment is becoming more and more popular these days, so I should be able to seamlessly combine “Inception” and Taco Bell. But, instead of putting any real thought into it, I just mashed burritos into other burritos and went from there.

Check out these Foodceptions: foods within foods within foods, homie. (more…)
