Ah, the things people to do try to make the terrible processed foods they eat appear edible. These are hilarious, and sort of really sad. Here are more:

The link wasn't working for me - one too many "http://"
This should work: 15 Hilarious Attempts to Make Horrifying Food Look Fancy

This has left me speechless - and hungry.
Gotta go to the store and get a can of Spaghetti-O's and some Miracle Whip. LOL

Hmm, thanks for fixing it John! Don't forget hot dogs and mac and (fake) cheese. They seem to be the staples of these meals!

Don't forget hot dogs and mac

Hot dogs and mac can be real food - but probably are not if you bought them at a supermarket.
Just like 'bologna'. Outside the U.S. it is usually called mortadella. (Called bologna here, after its origins in Bologna, Italy.) A well crafted mortadella can be delicious, and nutritional. What is sold here in those familiar yellow and red packages is not mortadella, and even calling it 'food' might be a stretch of the imagination.

That Cheerio casserole made me think of many bachelor cooks I have known. I asked one why he bought ketchup by the case. His response was "I like spaghetti."

Very good point. I just recently watched the homestead butchering videos on Farmstead Meathsmith's blog and I was so amazed at how resourceful he was, and how not gross it was. He used almost ALL of the pig to make those sort of, conglomeration of all the leftovers, dishes. Hot dogs get a bad rep because in large factories you just cannot trust that the scraps they use are from only the pig. They can combine unwanted pieces of meat from all sorts of animals and call it good. Very nasty.
