Fried Kool-Aid Balls

8 - Deep Fried Kool Aid

Some bad ideas you know instinctively.

Ideas like petting a wolverine. Or naming your child “Apple” (sorry Gwyneth). To these obvious, no-brainer horrible decisions we would add Fried Kool-Aid Balls.

Each part could make the Hall of Fame of Bad Ideas:

Fried – The quickest way to take the nutritional value out of any food.

Kool-Aid – Agitating, revving up and brainwashing America’s youth for 80 years.

Balls – Enough said.

And yet the whole is worse than the sum of its parts.

Just as the modern-thinking, secular among us begin to doubt the existence of Satan, Lucifer or whatever you choose to call that symbol of pure evil in the world, along comes a product like Fried Kool-Aid Balls, and no other explanation seems to fit.

Even so … you’re going to try them, aren’t you? Oh, come on. You know you are.
