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.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
