Special Guest Post by Snarkaholic: The KFC Double Down, aka the Chickapocalypse

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.

"The KFC Double Down is Real!" They say this with absolutely no sense of irony. I really thought this was an Internet joke when I first saw it, but no, the 540 calorie, 32 grams of fat, 11 grams of carb nightmare that is the Double Down is real. 2 pieces of fried chicken sandwiching 2 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of ch...eese, AND the Colonel's special sauce (ew).
The tag line for the sandwich? "Don't just feed your hunger. Crush it." Don't just clog your arteries...stop your heart.
But don't worry. KFC makes a GRILLED Double Down, at only 460 calories, 23 grams of fat, and 3 grams of carbs. Wow, that's almost like diet food. For Michael Phelps.

Here's a tip - You don't go to KFC to eat healthy. So while you're snorting your Diet Coke and other forms of Coke Janet, maybe you should find something better to post about.

I've been a fan of OutBlush for a long time, but this is the worst post ever featured, even worse than that sex toy run-down.

We really appreciate your comment, both its well thought out perspective and eloquence. You make Camille Paglia look like a nitwit. Our lives are all so enriched by your wit and charm.

Thanks for the left hook, Trajano!

Normally, we'd go to bat for Janet and get all feisty on y'all's porcine ignoramus ANONYMOUS asses, but since it's pretty obvious these comments are from trolls, we'll just yawn and mosey along to more interesting things.
