A big of pot calling the kettle black, no?

The British newspaper The Telegraph has a slideshow up today mocking the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona, California. The slideshow is titled "Only In America".

As you can probably guess, it features image after image of deep-fried American specialties such as deep fried Oreos, deep-fried Snickers, deep-fried Kool-Aid balls, and even deep-fried corruptions of healthy foods like avocado.

Now, we know that there is a bit of trolling going on here on the part of the Telegraph. There are also plenty of Brits in the comments defending our lardy ways and pointing out that this was a county fair, after all.

But still, what the hell, England? Seriously? You're one to talk. We thought we were in this overweight, first-world nation thing together. We were going to ask you to join Weight Watchers with us and be our diet buddy. Is this about our break-up? Eng, come on, that is so two centuries ago. We both agreed, we're better off as friends.
