The Onion Breaks Into Food TV With Porkin' Across America

If you're more of a

Diners Drive-ins and Dives

basher than a Guy Fieri fan, and

Man Versus Food

turns your stomach, you might get a kick out of

The Onion's

latest video series.

Porkin' Across America

parodies the shows that have developed a cult like following as devoted fans follow their favorite personalities across the country, assaulting their arteries with beef, cheese and pork fat.

The whole video is funny, but if you're a fan of The Onion's style of humor you'll love the scene depicting Jim Haggerty sharing a meal of pulled pork sandwiches and french fries with Michael Moses Jr.

Haggerty: You can really taste the cooked pork

Moses: We add a little extra chili powder to give it a nice kick.

Haggerty: Oh, I like the chili. You can taste the powder, too.
