Pimpification, and Penguin Bars

When MTV looks back on its legacy, and by that I mean the complete and utter destruction of western culture, I'd like to think that one of the things they will take particular pride in is their part in the transformation of "pimp" formerly a noun meaning "a flamboyantly dressed individual who protects prostitutes in exchange for a percentage of their profits" into a verb meaning "to improve, in a garish, impractical and ostentatious way."

But if "rides" can be "pimped" why not other things? Why not, say, snacks:

Pimp My Snack

Unfortunately, this is a British website so a lot of the snacks (Iced Buns, Tea Cakes, Pom Bears, Penguin bars, mmmmmmm Penguin Bars) are going to be unfamiliar to an American audience. Still, dumping a pound of icing sugar on a loaf of bread is amusing in almost any language:

Z, your course is clear. You must travel the world, seeking out these pimped foods, and you must eat them. All of them. Godspeed sir...Godspeed.
