“The sandwich consists of two fried chicken fillets wrapped around bacon, cheese and Colonel’s sauce.”

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

KFC makes a bacon sandwich where two pieces of fried chicken serve as the bread.

They call it, “The CSPI Fundraiser.”

    What lightweight thought of this?

    Geeze, at least throw a fired egg in there, and wrap it in a flatbread before deep frying it.

    And there should be a double double down, with twice the bacon and cheese.

    Ever watch comedien Jim Gaffigan? He talks about how ridiculous the franchise foods have become. In one joke he talks about a sandwich made of a hamburger between two donuts with a slice of ham called “the bacon ham hamburger”. lol This reminds me of that joke.

    Is the bacon buttered up?

    Dude (or Dudette), please allow me to present the Luther Burger.

    I’ve never had the commercially available ones, but I have done this at home. Krispy Kremes work well as the “bun.”

    (My inner comedy geek sez Jim Gaffigan rocks pretty hard.)

    My follow up to post #4 got stuck in moderation land (maybe cuz of the inserted comma in my handle and ergo I’m no longer on the approved list?).

    (God, I’m so fucking vain! I follow up on my own comment. And then when it doesn’t show up I resubmit. And I rip off The Simpsons again.)

    KFC makes the health care debate irrelevant.

    The Luther burger is HILARIOUS! lol Just when you thought there was no way to make a cheeseburger more unhealthy. heh heh.

    Awesome, just what we need. More food like this to make fat Wal-Mart shopping Americans even fatter!

    America is fat.

    And now “Dad, My heart hurts” finally shows up and makes me look even more lame. Thanks, Balko!

    Gaffigan’s “doughnut ham hamburger” was genius. I must have watched “Beyond The Pale” half a dozen times and it still cracks me up.

    This is the sort of thing that separates actual libertarians from the dilettantes, assuming CSPI or some other group of activists-masquerading-as-scientists ever gets this in front of a camera.

    The real freedom-lovers will say, “Sure, it may not be the healthiest choice, but you ought to be able to eat whatever you want.” The nanny-staters will say, “This crosses the line / We need mandatory labels / The FDA should regulate this / This will bankrupt Obamacare (even sooner)!”

    Something like this is a good test because no one can say that anyone is forced to eat it or that anyone doesn’t know at the outset that they are choosing to eat a high-fat item.

    For me, this is where libertarianism breaks down.. So long as people are genuinely choosing to eat this crap, fine. But how “free” that free choice is in a world of marketing and advertising is another thing entirely..

    Anyone else ever partake of the Rutgers Grease Trucks, home of the Fat Cat, Fat Moon, Fat Darrell, etc?

    Take some or all of the above ingredients, french fries or mozzarella sticks, and put them all into a sandwich roll. The earliest of Grease Trucks led to successful restaurants near campus. Sadly, nannyism has been intervening ever since.

    Paul: Are you saying that people hold you down and shove food down your throat against your will?

    Maybe they should, to teach you the difference between force and choice.

    +1 #15. There are some topics where libertarianism doesn’t seem to offer clear answers, but this is not one of them. If you don’t like it, don’t eat it.

    Shorter Paul: “Free will is a myth”

    If someone wants to eat that thing, whatever, it’s their body. What reason is there for anyone else to care?

    Try asking someone who’s worked in McDonalds if theres any correlation between what gets advertised on t.v one night and what sells the next day. Free will is largely an illusion, it takes a conscious effort to exert. It’s like that scene in “Life of Brian” when Brian is addressing his new followers, trying to impress upon them that they need to work it out for themselves as individuals, “yes”, they chant in unison, ” we are all individuals”. I don’t care if someone of sound mind freely decides to consume whatever they like. What bothers me is the dumb, the uneducated, the ill informed and the children who have millions of dollars spent on making them think that what they want is what the fast food industry wants to sell them.
