Who’s your daddy, little Double Down?  The KFC Double Down Zinger King.  I’m not writing that again; let’s just call it “zinger.”  I won’t even capitalize it.  That’s how lazy I am, and I do enough email composition during the day that I feel requires me to use proper grammar, sp., caps, etc.  I’m at home now and this is leisure writing, bitches.  I’m getting off-topic, and for that, I apologize.

This mother is called, well never mind.  It’s the zinger.  I just introduced it a paragraph ago; my bad!  So apparently, KFC in Korea has introduced this death trap.  Although, unless they are planning on having a large number of Americans visit their country (I don’t even know if this is North or South…I’ll bet on South or we wouldn’t be hearing about it unless Kim Jong-Il’s son, whateverhisnameis, gave his approval.  And attached some nuclear weapon to it.) What was I saying; oh yes.  I can’t see South Koreans purchasing this and consuming it.  Now some Americans who aren’t on the fitness craze, like most of the midwest and southern states, yes.  Oooh, BURN!  jk.  But maybe relatively true.  Come on; admit it, southern friends.  How many neighbors do you know that eat well and exercise and TRY to stay healthy?  I know.  But this bastard is worse than the original double down, and that looked pretty artery-clogging to begin with, don’t you think?  I must confess that many many years ago, I did try a double down.  After bashing it in an older post on this very blog.  And it wasn’t nearly as gnarly as it looked.  It was considerable smaller and thinner.  But I must have also been damn hungry to want it.  And I was, and it was good, for the reals.  But I never ate one again.  It’s one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ kinda things that you just gotta do.  Not proud I did, or whatever, but hey, I went there.

I guess the bottom line is, why, I ask, did KFC decide to bump it up a notch?  And a KFC Korea at that?  I would love to know.  But probably never will.  And also, for the bottom line, I’d like to say that this sandwich exists.  Just for existing’s sake.

…was Dr. Evil’s answer to the question posed by Austin Powers: “Do you really expect them to pay?”  I can’t remember which one of the Powers series this was from.  I think that anyone will pay, and die (eventually, but just a little sooner than most) if they feast regularly on this new KFC sandwich (a.k.a.: the Double Down).  Scaa-ry!

It actually looks good.  But scary at the same time.  I think if no one was watching, and I could have someone order it for me, and deliver it to me, I might eat it.  Just once.  And half for now, half for later.  But buying that sandwich and eating in the KFC is like saying, “Look at me!  I’m a friggin’ animal!  I don’t want to live a long life!”  So maybe I have a double standard.  I just don’t know anymore.

I’m not even certain why KFC would want to market this evil thang.  I do know that there’s some humor in gawking at how monstrous this sandwich is.  Tee hee.
