Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Wearing a Mr. Spock sweatshirt, McCarthy is asked to try some new dressing flavors, where she gets a "strong hint of strawberry and kiwi" from the bacon flavor.

It all goes downhill from there, which amounts to a lot of awesomeness (and a strong reminder of another comedic genius -- John Belushi). Watch here:
