A wag of the finger to KFC

Screen shot 2010-04-24 at 3.45.41 PMFirst off, let me say that I am not trying to be holier than thou here.  I’m not the worlds healthiest eater by any means.  I try… I really do, but to act like I’ve never ingested a Big Mac would be a lie.  That being said, I must give a wag of the finger to KFC and their new “Double Down” chicken sandwich.  What is it exactly?  I’ll let the Colonel himself tell you:

The new KFC Double Down sandwich is real! This one-of-a-kind sandwich features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce. This product is so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!

Really Colonel Sanders?  Is this what America needs?

You are what you eat so the saying goes.  I agree with that.  I also agree with a point that comedian and social commentator Bill Maher made  about the state of America’s health.  Maher argued that one of the reasons health care costs are so high is because Americans stay sick.  Americans stay sick partly because of the of the food we put into our bodies.  Regardless of facade that fast food companies have put up for us recently of “healthy menu choices”,  Colonel Sanders and all the rest of them want you to get sick, because they want you to eat this sandwich and all the other ridiculous meat, cheese and more meat and cheese combinations they have come up with.  Why? because it makes them money…

So if you are what you eat as I said before, then I’m a fish taco from Mamacitas, the best fish taco in Asheville and official fish taco of integritive, and if you ever see me eating a Double Down chicken sandwich from KFC, right after you make me eat a bunch of crow… just go ahead and shoot me.

Sometimes there’s just a restaurant so new and so good it needs to be on the blog. Going to check out the Cuban special next time.

Happy Meal Nostalgia

81spaceshipGone are the days when I could eat my lunch out of a flying saucer, but here’s to the days when every faint memory of my childhood is chronicled online. No matter your age, you can find your favorite happy meal here:


Read this book.

“When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.”


New Orleans victory in the Super Bowl got me thinking about that great city and one of the greatest reads of all time. Confederacy of Dunces. Read it with a warm beignet and a hot coffee or a cart-load of hotdogs.
