This is a small series by photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist (Jesus -- even foods have stylists now? I still cut my own hair) Caitlin Levin of a bunch of deep-fried gadgets. It's supposed to be a social commentary on how consumers view gadgets as disposable (or possibly as french fries) and how they're often tossed as soon as a new version comes out. Don't get me wrong, I GET the message, I'm just not sure why you went with deep-frying. I would gone with like, an old iPhone in the trash, and a new one sitting on the counter next to it. That's something everyone could understand. Now -- are you thinking what I'm thinking? "You want me to take you to the fair to get a funnel cake?" Shotgun!

Hit the jump for a bunch more, including a suspect-looking iPad and MacBook I'm not convinced would have still been working.

Thanks to Lily, who's had deep-fried jelly-filled donuts before and straight up thought she had died and gone to culinary heaven.
