Fatty Arbuckle's Last Meal (2008)


Poor Fatty! The great vaudevillian and silent-film comedian (he invented the pie in the face) had his career ruined by scandal—he was accused of killing actress Virginia Rappe while raping her, though he was later exonerated. We're going to make sure he gets plenty of fat for his final, three-part meal. First, a kebab of lamb-tail fat from the Uzbeki restaurant Cheburechnaya; second, a lardo pizza at Mario Batali's (himself no slender fellow) Otto; and third, the pork belly ssam at Momofuku Ssam Bar. Triple yum!
