Ah, yes – true Bulldada can be found even in the food we eat! Without food we'd all be dead (no, really?)…and yet, sites that seek out weirdness rarely look in this direction.

Pat Robertson's Age-Defying Protein Shake
This company imports lots of Hungarian delicacies.
I recommend the 'Lecso' which is a condiment/sauce somewhere between a salsa and a tomato sauce. It's delicious for stewing chicken, and in potato and egg recipes. Makes for good crock potting, too.
I also recommend their 'Plum Butter' which looks a lot like apple butter but has a very delicate flavor. Use it instead of jams on toast or syrup on pancakes. Also excellent between two layers of vanilla layer cake. Plum butter is also an excellent spread for your favorite lunch wrap. Spread a little plum butter on the flour tortilla and then add the chicken salad or whatever. Probably good for oriental recipes and baking too.
One of the more disturbing trends among teen girls is the so-called "pro-ana" movement. This stands for "pro-anorexia," and the idea here is that anorexia nervosa isn't actually a disease but a "chosen lifestyle." (This is the same excuse that smokers use to justify their addictions.) There are sub-sections of this group, especially for the types of starvation: "my best friend Ana" (for anorexia) or "my friend Mia" (for bulimia). The idea of anorexia as a "lifestyle" has subjected these people to a lot of abuse and persecution – especially since many pro-ana people are underage girls. A lot of pro-ana Web sites have been forced offline or into hiding since the turn of the century, usually with the excuse that these sites encourage teenagers to engage in a "lifestyle" that leads to suicide.
