Your bologna has a first name, and a second name. This is common knowledge. But it also has an opinion about you -- one that it shares with the rest of the world, freely and without reservation.

And bologna isn't the only lunchmeat that does this. They all do it. Your choice of sandwich meat speaks volumes. And it behooves you to know exactly what exactly it's saying.

1. Bologna "I aspire to someday have my picture taken beside the Weinermobile." 2. Boiled Ham "No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women, no fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark." 3. Roasted Turkey "Give me a sandwich that tastes like November." 4. Pastrami "There's nothing wrong with gluttony -- there are still six other deadly sins I'm not doing, right? OK, five. But still ..." 5. Olive Loaf "When I look at my lunch, I want that sucker to be looking right back at me." 6. Salami "I'd rather be eating pizza." 7. Roast Beef "I'm thinking Arby's ... and that I'll probably die at 50." 8. Liverwurst "I was born during the Depression, back when we had to convince ourselves that crap like this tasted good." 9. Meatloaf "That's right, meatloaf twice within 18 hours. Jealous?" 10. Head Cheese "I will eat anything. I mean it. Literally anything."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
