The fast food apocalypse is upon us…
Today, I stumbled upon one of the filthiest food incarnations that people will inevitably stuff down their gaping maw. This “sandwich” marks a potential turning point for American society. If it is popular and other restaurants start to emulate it I think we will know that Americans are committed to being a bunch of fat fucks. At its core KFC is offering a pure meat sandwich the likes of which I have never seen. It is a menage trois of processed animal carcass. Basically the chicken is double-teaming the pig and KFC is suggesting that I eat this gang-bang. I don’t think I could stomach it but I know this will be popular. Appeal to the lowest common denominator of the American public and anyone can be successful – depressing but true.
One of my coworkers has a unexplainable fascination with specialty fast food items and has tried just about every greasy fast food incarnation that debut from time to time. I see it as a masochistic food hobby but in some cases he actually likes the what these sick bastards come up with at their food labs tucked away in The Burger King’s underground lair. As soon as I saw the Doubledown I knew that I needed to make him aware of it and sent him this email today:

I feel like this is in your wheelhouse and wanted to make you aware of it…

Sign me up! It’s like I’m holding a 7 & 4 and the dealer is showing a 6! Name seems appropriate, since you are gambling away the years of life you have left.
I couldn’t have said it any better myself. To top it off I asked him to dip into his extensive knowledge of disgusting fast food for the top 3 most disgusting fast food abominations that he has ever dared to consume. Here they are:
Wendy’s Bacon Cheese Jalapeno Burger
2 patties, square which already sucks and then the cheese was like nacho cheese, was much like biting into a meat jelly doughnut.
Carl’s Jr Prime Rib 6-Dollar Burger
As if a giant pound of meat was not enough, they decide to throw an extra half pound of slimy & super fatty low grade meat which they called Prime Rib on top, which doesn’t even do the French Dip at Denny’s justice.
Taco Bell’s Shrimp Tacos
Still yet to try but let’s face it everyone knows that taco bell should stay far away from fish, and definitely far away from shellfish!
It always feels good to defer to a pro. I will leave you with the commercial for the new Doubledown so you know I am not bullshitting you.
