Guilty Pleasures

Never one to miss out on a meme, I'm following in JayG's footsteps, and listing a few of my favorite guilty pleasures:

Old Cartoons - I lurve me some Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, and Tom and Jerry.  The Golden Age of Cartoons, which ran from the 1930's to the 1950's, was a period when animators, writers, and voice artists used god-like powers to synthesize ink, celluloid, and squeaky voices into masterpieces of American cinematography.

Fast Food Breakfasts, especially McDonalds and Hardees - I love fresh fruit, hot cereal, and wholesome whole grain pancakes as much as the next guy.  But what really curls my toes is a nice piece of deep fried potato matter, a nice greasy egg, cheese, and something that resembles processed pork sandwich, and a cup of coffee.

Dunkin' Donuts Coffee -  Jay already mentioned this, but I love a 55 gallon drum sized coffee, with plenty of cream and sugar, from Dunkin' Donuts.  This wonderful concoction may not have been made by a wonderfully artistic, multiply pierced college student, using beans that were grown in the shade of a unicorn tree on the side of a cotton candy volcano, then roasted in an oven warmed by the fires of a gumdrop dragon, then ground between the thighs of a Ukrainian super model, but it definitely tastes good and gets me going in the morning.  I just wish we had a real Dunkin' Donuts in Louisville so I could sit at the counter and eat cruelers with my coffee.

Best part is, I got to indulge myself in all three this weekend.  Yesterday morning was made of Win!

So, what do you guys love?

More and more, listening to U2 is becoming a guilty pleasure. If Bono would just keep his stupid trap...

Rocky and Bullwinkle, especially with Boris, Natasha, and Fearless Leader; "First we steal Mooseberry Bush, THEN we kill moose and squirrel! Bwa ha ha!"

That and a good bourbon ;)

J. Wilson, it's just not the same. You have to eat 10 Krispy Kremes to equal one Dunkin. They just don't top you off. Too much air.
