Grumpy Loaf: Mr. Dave Gets Meme-y With Loaf (Grumpy Cat Loaf)

Black pepper for shading....
If you don't know, I fancy myself something of an artist. The medium in which I work just happens to be meatloaf. I like to call myself a "Meatloafartist." My previous meat masterpieces include - "Meatloafy the Whale" and "Meat Romney." You are welcome to consult either of those posts if you are interested in the process that begets a meatloaf masterpiece...

Anyhow, mayhaps you are aware of the "Grumpy Cat" meme that has taken the internets by storm. Check out the "Tard the Grumpy Cat" reddit for some good examples. I am not usually susceptible to internet fads, but for some reason ol' Tard the Cat has just plum tickled my fancies. I can't get enough of that silly cat...

As I had a bit of excess meat in the fridge I thought that it might be an opportune time to pay tribute to this particular fad by immortalizing the "Grumpy Cat" in meat form. As a note, I cover the meatloaf with mashed potatoes. I did not use some manner of strange white meat...

Here is what I came up with-

Initial Attempt.


Spice Rub Ears!

A different angle.

Grumpy Loaf!!!

Hopefully this gave you a giggle or two. I thought it came out pretty damn good. It is amazing what a steady hand, some instant mashed potatoes, and a squirt bottle full of barbecue sauce can come up with!

I am still conceiving a grand project called the "Meatpire State Plaza" that is sure to impress the Albany-born (it will include a Meat-Egg) but that grandiose project is going to take some planning and time... Hopefully this example of meat-art tides you over until I can get that whole thing together...

Oh yeah, I thought I would add a picture of the actual Grumpy Cat for comparison purposes.
