The Boys Consider KFC's "Double Down" Sandwich

The boys have long lamented the fact that Larryville offers no other fast-food chicken franchises besides KFC, but luckily KFC's new "double-down" sandwich has given us a reason to start frequenting the Colonel again. Yes, we know we're a little late on this story, but somehow this delicious monstrosity flew under our radar for awhile. In case you're not familiar with it (and you East Side foodies may well not be), the Double-Down uses two fried chicken breasts as its "bun" and in between contains two slices of cheese, bacon, and "special sauce."

Chip: "I like it for breakfast with a side of gravy."

Richard: "Easily the greatest food innovation since the Bacon Explosion."

And while we're on the subject of KFC, please take two and a half minutes out of your busy Sunday and watch Patton Oswalt riffing on KFC's "famous bowls":


If you enjoy art, politics, fashion, and/or hilarious board games about prison rape, make sure to mingle with artist/designer John Sebelius (son of former governor Kathleen Sebelius) at his art opening, "Outcast," tonight at the Pig. John has been in the news recently due to his controversial board game "Don't Drop The Soap," which his website describes as follows:

"Fight your way through 6 different exciting locations in hopes of being granted parole. Escape prison riots in The Yard, slip glass into a mob boss' lasagna in the Cafeteria, steal painkillers from the nurse's desk in the Infirmary, avoid being cornered by the Aryans in the Shower Room, fight off Latin Kings in Gang War, and try not to smoke your entire stash in The Hole."

Here's a link to his site, where you can purchase the game and check out John's clothing designs as well:

And here's a picture of the board game. Your kids will always fight over who gets to be the "bag of coke!" Click to enlarge.

"I want a failure pile in a sadness bowl." Classic.

Yah, it's stuck in the window this time said...

I bet sticking one's junk between those hot, cheesey chicken buns makes for a softer squishee than using Kip for one's dick cozzee.

--But only one way to know for sure!

three cheers for Beth! said...

We love when people check out our links (and especially any link involving Patton Oswalt!).

The only possible way to improve that Double-Down sandwich is to add a fried egg in between the chicken.
