We've got to hand it to The Onion. Its latest parody, "Porkin' Across America," nails food reality television to a tee -- even the camera angles look like startlingly familiar. We half expected Adam Richman to suddenly jump into frame.

The show follows fictional host Jim Haggerty, who aims to pork it up in all 50 states. Episode 1 features Haggerty's first stop in Lexington, K.Y., where he makes insightful comments like, "It's times like these I thank god I'm not an observant Jew," and "Wow, you can really taste the cooked pork."

There's also a whole shtick with Haggerty's distressed wife calling and calling, begging him to come home. Being the wife of a food personality isn't all it's cracked up to be, apparently.

Watch the first episode of The Onion's "Porkin' Across America" below.

  • Stinkheads

    Most often made from salmon, the heads are lopped off, buried in the ground to rot, and dug up when the good bacteria has eaten the bad bacteria and the heads are safe enough to eat without killing you. Where it's commonly found: Alaska. <a href="http://www.thedailymeal.com/one-food-andrew-zimmern-doesn-t?utm_source=huffington%2Bpost&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=zimmerns%2Bbizarre%2Bfoods" target="_hplink"><strong>Click here to see The One Food Andrew Zimmern Doesn't Like</strong></a> <em>Photo Credit:</em> © <strong>wiki / Ansgar Walk</strong>

  • Raccoon

    I have had them a hundred times and it's only been delicious on a few occasions. Most folks don't understand that they have to be skinned well to remove all the fat, twice cooked (braise, then roast), and you need to remove the stink glands under the arms. If you don't, well, it gets pretty ripe. Where it's commonly found: The South. <a href="http://www.thedailymeal.com/10-chain-restaurant-menu-items-you-must-try-and-where-try-them-slideshow#1?utm_source=huffington%2Bpost&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=zimmerns%2Bbizarre%2Bfoods" target="_hplink"><strong>Click here to see 10 Chain Restaurant Menu Items You Must Try</strong></a> <em>Photo Credit:</em> © <strong>altrendo nature</strong>

    Bags of corn chips filled with canned chili and fixings are a staple of fundraisers all across small town America. Some are good, most are inedible.

  • Pickled Pigs Feet

    I like em roasted, I like 'em boiled and pulled, I like 'em BBQ-ed, but pickled pigs feet is a tough sell in my house on a good day. Where it's commonly found: Gas station checkout counters. <a href="http://www.thedailymeal.com/which-us-airlines-still-offer-free-amenities-and-what-you-ll-get-slideshow?utm_source=huffington%2Bpost&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=zimmerns%2Bbizarre%2Bfoods" target="_hplink"><strong>Click here to see Which US Airlines Still Offer Free Amenities</strong></a> <em>Photo Credit:</em> © <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/leff/" target="_hplink"><strong>Flickr / leff</strong></a>

  • Prairie Rats

    In the high desert of Arizona these critters are counted in the millions easy to trap, they are cooked whole or staked out to dry for jerky, survival school style. Where it's commonly found: Arizona. <a href="http://www.thedailymeal.com/video-where-get-deep-dish-pizza-chicago?utm_source=huffington%2Bpost&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=zimmerns%2Bbizarre%2Bfoods" target="_hplink"><strong>Click here to see Where to Get Deep-Dish Pizza in Chicago</strong></a> <em>Photo Credit:</em> © <strong>iStockphoto / Thinkstock</strong>

  • Roasted Prairie Dogs with Cedar

    Cute as the dickens, and pretty tasty, too, but these little varmints are singed whole to remove the hair then stuffed with cedar boughs and roasted in the coals of the fire. Where it's commonly found: New Mexico. <a href="http://www.thedailymeal.com/zagat-ranks-best-airline-food?utm_source=huffington%2Bpost&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=zimmerns%2Bbizarre%2Bfoods" target="_hplink"><strong>Click here to see the Best Airline Food as reviewed by Zagat</strong></a> <em>Photo Credit:</em> © <strong>wiki / Magnus Manske</strong>

  • Hot Dogs

    Freshly ground in a real casing with the requisite snap is awesome. Commodity dogs are made under a veil of secrecy. You do the math on that. Where it's commonly found: In your grocers meat section. <a href="http://www.thedailymeal.com/9-travel-apps-guide-you-destination-s-best-eats-1?utm_source=huffington%2Bpost&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=zimmerns%2Bbizarre%2Bfoods" target="_hplink"><strong>Click here to see Top Travel Apps to Guide You to Destination's Best Eats</strong></a> <em>Photo Credit:</em> © <strong>Digital Vision</strong>
