Everyone say a warm "Welcome back!" to today's guest poster, Janet at Snarkaholic! She blogs, often irreverently, about life in Los Angeles from the point of a non-native, non-celebrity-chaser.
The second I heard about the new KFC Double Down "Sandwich," ($$????) I thought of Patton Oswalt's genius sketch about the societal downfall that is the KFC Famous Bowl. Then I read the account of NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" staff actually sampling these monstrous confections of saturated fat and (just barely) living to tell the tale. Their quip, "Now I'm nostalgic for bread," made me snort Diet Coke up my nose, but it also convinced me to never, ever set foot in a KFC again. Seriously. I would rather have 590 calories & 32 grams of fat's worth of just about any other food on the planet.
