On Pornography, Culinary

The Slate review of the latest Hardees ad campaign for the Monster Thickburger contains the following brilliant sentence:
I guess if the Thickburger qualifies as food porn, the Monster Thickburger is XXX hard-core food porn, with cheese bondage and underage buns and deviant bacon orgies.
The ads, by the way, are genuinely pornographic, which is a shame because I was otherwise quite well disposed to the Monster Thickburger. Just as well, I suppose, since there aren't any Hardees in the Northeast.
