Today’s Random *NSYNC mention…(bonus Joey Fatone mention)
Sometimes people compare NSYNC to really random strange things. Like Twilight. Or, in today’s case, sandwiches. I don’t know why I’m always amazed when certain people know who *NSYNC are, and who individual members are, enough to joke about them. Today, NPR eats a sandwich. In the world of sandwiches, a Joey Fatone is a delicious guilty pleasure. Errr, we’re painting “delicious” with a very broad brush.
Feast on this:
Sandwich Monday: ‘The (Sandwich That Helped Kill) Elvis’
Categories: Sandwich Mondays
September 27, 2010
SPOILER ALERT: Elvis Presley did not live the the healthiest life. He may have tried illicit drugs at some point, and he was partial to a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Now brave souls call that sandwich “The Elvis,” and they wash it down with gravy.
There’s some debate over whether Elvis also put bacon on his creation. There is also debate about whether he’s still alive.
The first bite:
Mike: Wow, this is gross. The flavors don’t blend. It’s like N’SYNC[sic]. They’re great together, but as solo acts not so much.
Eva: Yes, they’re competing.
Ian: If we’re talking about N’SYNC[sic], this sandwich is definitely Joey Fatone.
Ian: I’d prefer my bacon on the side.
Eva: Elvis never had anything on the side. He just had another one of these sandwiches beside his sandwich.
Mike: I just don’t see what the fuss is about.
Ian: Maybe Elvis liked his so much because he also put pills on his sandwich. Peanut butter, banana, bacon, and quaaludes.
Ian: I think when you’re a baby banana, you never think this is where you’re gonna end up. I mean, you know you’re going to get eaten, probably by a monkey, but not this.
Eva: Yeah, you at least think you’re going to be healthy.
Mike: This is the being-found-passed-out-in-a-pile-of-garbage of bananas.
Mike: The problem, really, is it’s not gluttonous enough, by today’s standards.
Eva: Back then it was probably shocking, but the Elvis of today would be eating much worse.
Mike: Yeah, this is probably served somewhere now as a healthy snack for kindergartners.
