Would you feel flattered or disgusted? Comedian Jim Gaffigan, the self-described noble ape, male model and long snapper on Twitter, tweeted Sunday ahead of his headliner show at Spokane Arena that evening “a specialty drink in honor of my show available tonight only at Spokane Arena. I’m flattered and disgusted with myself.”

Gaffigan posted a video of the specialty cocktail, which he called “gluttony in a glass,” on Per a Spokane Arena representative, the drink consisted of vodka, Bloody Mary mix, a mini Hot Pocket, bacon, a mini corn dog and a chocolate cupcake with brown butter, bacon butter and cream frosting.

Sounds right up the alley for any child, minus the vodka and Bloody Mary mix, right? Or for yours truly, to be honest. The Twitterverse responded. Ben McGaughey has it right: “Looks like something from Pig Out in the Park.” Julie Blum said, “I like how it progresses from breakfast to lunch to dessert.” And Blair “Mostly Harmless” McKee chimed in, “That’s not food; that’s a poem.”

The Emmy Award-winning Gaffigan’s most recent work, along with his comedy tour, includes “Bob’s Burgers” and “Star vs. The Forces of Evil.” The Indiana native won an American Comedy Award in 2014 for “Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed.”
