The Duggars, Grilled Cheese, and Cannibalism

Welcome Captain Dumbass from Us and Them as guest blogger. I have been a fan of the Captain since my first days blogging. He writes great stories, does hilarious stuff with his boys holding signs, and is amazing with toys and grilled cheese as props posts. He's been nice enough to donate a grilled cheese post while I'm away. Thanks Captain. And look, not red circled items...

Writing a guest post for someone is always a bit daunting for me, especially if it's for someone like Pseudo who can not only write properly, but is a teacher as well. I think I can pen a funny story every once in awhile, but things like spelling, grammar, punctuation, and basic sentence structure aren't exactly my strong suits. Plus, I didn't want to get my post sent back to me with a bunch of red circles on it and homework.

With that in mind, I decided to fall back on something I am good at. Making pictures with grilled cheese. Once I'd decided on grilled cheese, I needed a subject. I've done movie scenes and crime scenes (ketchup and tomato soup) and gourmet food blog pics like when I added mac and cheese to a sandwich, but I wanted something different. Maybe something related to current events. And then I heard that Michelle Duggar of 18 Kids and Counting is expecting baby number 19 and knew I had my focus. Congratulations Jim Bob and Michelle! Oh ya, cannibals.

Sure he's cute, but I have to sleep with one eye open. Ignore the girlish scream at the end, I'm not sure who that is. Mmm, tasty tasty Duggar's.

After this post, I think I should rethink that rule in the lunchroom about not playing with food.

Genius! Nothing beats a grilled cheese sandwich!

♥ Braja said...

Ok....that's....uh....nice....

Help.

♥ Braja said...

Oh well OK it's vegetarian, bless your Canadian heart Cap'n....

Creepy said...

Mmmmmm... baby Duggar brains.

excellent.

Michele said...

When you show 19 kids in grilled cheese form it seems like way too man. Oh wait.....it is way too many. Kid or grilled cheese.

A Mom on Spin said...

Can we circle back on the mac and cheese post?

'Cause Captain, I would have 19 of your children if you made me some sort of grilled mac & cheese everyday. . .

otin said...

What can you do with biscuits???? LOL!

Kathy said...

grilled mac and cheese? Oh yes. I like the girlish scream.

Kristan said...

I bet they wished they had 19 grilled cheese kids instead of real ones... :P

Great guest post, thanks Captain Dumbass and Pseudo!

smiles4u said...

LOL! You put a lot of work into this post...how many grilled sandwiches did you have to make to get all those cut outs?

Mango Girl said...

What great bite size snacks. Yummy!

Jeanne said...

I was kind of reading along, quizzically, until I saw the picture of the g.c. kids all lined up behind the parents. And then I just laughed and laughed....

Not The Rockefellers said...

Yummy, yummy, Duggar in my tummy...

Wait? Is that where they come from?

Aiyeeeee....

Peace - Rene

Little Ms Blogger said...

OMG - love the cut outs of grilled cheese and it did make me think, if the Duggars were stranded, would they eat one another?

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

So I think if we ate the Duggars for lunch, we'd get fat.

Amy said...

What a great post. I would not want to be PG 19 times no way..

IB said...

You are a twisted, twisted man. Funny, but wrong in so many ways.

Kat said...

Now you have me searching for the video of Josh Duggar making an inappropriate comment when they announced his wife was pregnant.

Kaylen said...

wow...this really puts it in perspective. Thanks for this.

I love your son. I'm slightly worried about the girly scream that was emitted....

Fragrant Liar said...

See, now I'm hungry, Cap'n. Your son is adorable.

What up with that girly scream?

Mrs. C. said...

I didn't know grilled cheese folk HAD brains. Just wait...one of these days they're going to get a plan and overthrow you...

Vodka Logic said...

I think someone has eaten Michelle Duggars brain for her to let Jim Bob near her with his penis. Not that she can even feel it any more.

Funny post.

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

LMAO at you, and Vodka Logic....

only a movie said...

Grilled cheese can be the solution to many of the world's troubles.

Nice job!

The Dental Maven said...

Okay, now, that there must have taken up the better part of a day to produce. Captain? You're amazing.

Pippa said...

I am on a diet! Damn you and your yummy looking cheese toasties. I'm going to go and make one now.

mo.stoneskin said...

And I'll bet it took you a week to make them. Ugh, dry and crusty.

Captain Dumbass said...

It was only five sandwiches, and it didn't take all that long, though they needed to cool down a little. Makes them easier to cut and stand up.

@Mo - once you drown them in tomato soup they soften up quite nicely.

jerlyn said...

i secretly knew, feeding you all
those soggy grilled cheese sandwiches when you were young,
would pay off big time.
...as for the Duggers, bet they
don't get many babysitting offers
from the Grandparent!!!

ps see, you never thought grammar
and spelling were important.
hats off the the "Teacher."

blueviolet said...

That was just so stinkin' adorable and silly!

Sprite's Keeper said...

I'm nauseaus and hungry at the same time now.

FoN said...

That's brillant! I'm totally making these but telling my kids they are little voodoo dolls.

Then they can decide who they hate and eat them.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

You can never have too many grilled cheese sandwiches. Children, on the other hand.....

Lady Mama said...

Mmmm grilled cheese... if only the Duggars had focused on grilled cheese and not making so many babies...

"I ate your brain". Haha. Love that.

surprised mom said...

As usual, creative and humorous! And yes, he is cute! Does that sweet little boy really make you sleep with one eye open? I mean, it's not like he's eating REAL people . . . LOL.

ArtSnark said...

Captain, you are officially a grilled cheese god!

anymommy said...

This is just plain awesome. Grilled cheese awesomeness.

jen said...

that looks like SO many kids when they are modeled through grilled cheese sandwiches.
well ...
it is SO many kids.
i'm guessing the g.c. ones are easier to take care of ...

Casey said...

Nice demonstration, Captain!

Now if only that family were cannibals and tasted like grilled cheese, there would be way less of them and their grocery bill wouldn't be so high.

Gaston Studio said...

You are so creative with grilled cheese sandwiches! But 19 kids? Are you serious?

Mama Dawg said...

Giving the term "eating out" a new twist. Bravo!

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

That's about the only way I can stomach the Duggars. Cute.

nothingfancy1 said...

What a hoot! Thanks for kick starting my morning. I'll never look at grilled cheese the same again...

Stereos and Souffles said...

Your kids must think you're the coolest Dad ever!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Grilled cheese is my kids' favorite food! Actually - it's practically all they ever eat. I need to get more creative with that meal... By the way - I must have put the wrong url in my reader. I had no idea you've had any posts since July!

L.R. M-J said...

Grilled cheese figures...ooo the fun I could have w/some of the cutouts I have!! What's the secret? What's the recipe? tell me tell me.
19 kids? I'm telling you, someone is a few ants short of a picnic!!

Vodka Mom said...

OMG!!!!!!!!

Are you SURE you didn't post this just for me??????

I've been missing my little cheesy men!!!

SSP said...

mmm brains...send more grilled cheese brains...that was hilarious...your guesting is as funny as your own blog. what kool air do you drink that makes you have all these wonderful, (albeit frighteningly twisted) thoughts??

Sandy said...

Nice job. Can someone tell me why anyone would want 19 children?

kyooty said...

Love this! great idea, :)
