Edited alt-text: Although maybe it's just a phase, like freshman year of college when I realized I could just buy frosting in a can.

I always thought that cooking your own food was supposed to be good for you?

Mine wasn't bacon. It was the knowledge that I could bake whatever I wanted whenever I wanted it.

At least my labmates are well-fed...

I've had so much bacon this week, I'm probably half way down the post-bacon-revelation slope already.

Frosting in a pressurized can is one of humankind's greatest inventions, if you hook a can up to an aquarium air hose you can eat it on the go. Everything should come in a pressurized can.

Fluffy Albertsons cookies.

My sophomore year of college, I used to purposelessly loose in smash early just to make sure I got more cookies than everyone else.

I just recently bought my first bag of brown sugar (intending it only for relatively healthy home cooked meals) and I've now eaten more of it with a spoon/my fingers than has been used in any cooking.

I did however manage to lose weight my freshman year, so I think I deserve my sugary treat.

Yep. Had that problem right away when I realized my college's dining center has a twenty-four-hour soft-serve ice cream machine.

Also known as "icing". Not like in hockey, like in sugar and butter and food coloring meant to be spread on cake, but best eaten by itself for maximum buzz.

That picture gets me every time. It's just such a wonderful injection of the absurd.

About the comic, though... I'm going to college in the fall, and I'm pretty sure my dorm room is going to have an extremely well-stocked cafe/market underneath it. Must resist random late-night Cheetos urges...

Resistance is futile. And chips of any kind at any time are a perfectly acceptable substitute for the nagging hunger pangs you know will subside with sleep. Conveniently located food is a wondrous thing. Bacon at the push of a button is the pinnacle of human achievement.

WRONG. Common mistake is that frosting = icing. Frosting is soft and made with butter. Icing is made with water and goes hard when cooled.

EDIT: Wikipedia says that both are called icing and the latter is called glacé icing. Who's to say who is right?

I am. Wikipedia, you are wrong.

well yes, if all you're capable of cooking is a salad.

otherwise, frying stuff is relatively cheap and easy, and bacon comes with its own fat! mmm, bacon.

I was amazed to find that you no longer have to make your own cookie dough. Screw the cookies, just buy the bag of dough, open, and eat.

I've made a point of not learning how to cook bacon for exactly this reason. I already eat too much grilled cheese, and bacon on that... I'd be dead in a month. Unfortunately I fear I'll have to learn eventually... DAMN YOU BACON AND YOUR AWESOMENESS

Similarly, when I realized I could just go to the 24-hour grocery store and buy a pie any time I wanted. A whole pie! For myself! That temptation has been a pain ever since...

Like bacon!

[edit]

I've selected my last meal. (Though I'd want it topped with bacon.)
