Expose: The KFC DoubleDown


I know it it is disgusting and awful and bad for my heart. I understand that it is symbolic of the age of excess that we live in, a virtual caricature of itself. I know that to reference it at a party or the water cooler is to possibly hasten your own demise; so red do the eyes glow of the healthy, green people of my generation.

I know that it has more calories than a human leg, the sodium it contains could fill a tube sock, and the grease it brings could soak a sumo wrestler's beach towel.

And I know that, perhaps worst of all, it will taste like garbage.

I know all that; what I don't know, and what I want the answer to is: Why do I still want one so bad?

Let me know when you take the leap. I wanna try it, but if you die, I'll know not to. Thank you for your sacrifice, big bro!

If you dare eat it, you definitely need to blog about the experience. I mean, I'm not going to do it, but heck I'd like to hear about the outcome!
