In honor of National Eat What You Want Day (May 11), we’re celebrating your favorite anti-hero: the epitome of the “You Do You” philosophy, especially when it comes to food – Deadpool! Wade Wilson is known for a lot of things, but his love of food – even at the most inopportune times – is one of the reasons we love him so much. He appreciates that sometimes you really want a cookie. We don’t mean in that passive “I really want a cookie” way; we mean in that overwhelming “I will steal a child’s lunchbox if it means I get a cookie” kind of way. Lucky for you, today is the day where you can eat whatever you want and not feel bad about it! It’s a holiday after all (and it’s way better than National Bunsen Burner Day or National Clean Up Your Room Day! Those are actual “National” days too…).
Take a page out of Deadpool’s cookbook for some inspiration on how to treat yourself today:
1) Chimichangas: Fried Heaven
Deadpool isn’t exactly known for good impulse control and that is especially true when it comes to his love for chimichangas. We’re not sure how or where this love originated, but we do know that the love between man and his fried burrito is everlasting.
2) Tacos: Let’s Taco ‘Bout You and Me
Although Wade Wilson doesn’t love tacos quite as much as chimichangas, he would still stop in the middle of a fight if there was even a chance of tacos being sold nearby. Every day is Taco Tuesday for the Merc with a Mouth.
3) Pancakes: It’s Just Cake for Breakfast
Deadpool is all about pancakes! In fact, we think that a Deadpool dream probably resembles something out of Scrooge McDuck’s life: it involves a vault of pancakes and swimming laps through it every morning. Deadpool can never have too many pancakes.
4) Pizza: Steal a Pizza My Heart.
Deadpool is all about the sweet and salty; if he could eat chimichangas wrapped in pancakes (how is this not a thing!? We’re opening a “Panchanga” food cart right now) he probably would. However, to get his sweet and salty fix, he orders himself a slice of pineapple and olive pizza. Gross? We’re not sure how we feel about this, but we might stick with tacos…
5) Ice Cream: “You Going to Eat This? Don’t Answer That”
In a Deadpool 2 teaser trailer, we learn that 1) Deadpool takes a really long time to change into his spandex suit 2) telephone booths still exist and 3) there is never a bad time for Cherry Garcia. Deadpool is all about Ben & Jerry’s ice cream – even when it seems like stealing a dead man’s groceries might just win him “Marvel’s Worst Superhero” award.
Be inspired by Deadpool and eat whatever you want today! Go ahead and eat that pancake-wrapped chimichanga pizza! And while you’re at it, grab a pint of ice cream and a Design By Humans’ Deadpool tee because Deadpool 2 is hitting a kitchen near you on May 18th, 2018!
