Just when you thought fast food couldn’t get worse

KFC introduces it’s “double-down.”

How does one make a double-down? Easy. Put two pieces of bacon and two slices cheese between two pieces of deep-fried chicken. Omit the bun. If, after eating one, your fingers aren’t to greasy to keep a hold of the phone, please call 9-11 and order an ambulance immediately.

This “sandwich” stomps a Big Mac with more calories, fat and sodium. In your face, Ronald. How much calories, fat and sodium? 540 calories, 32g of fat, and 1380mg sodium. Eating two puts you over your daily limit for saturated fat and sodium, so make sure to skip breakfast. (Is it really worth it?)

Don’t worry, according to the Indy Star, KFC is giving away all the extra buns that they’re not using. According to their VP of Marketing, “thousands” of buns will be donated nationally. Thousands, huh? Not tens or hundreds of thousands? Let’s be optimistic. Let’s say they donate 9,000 buns (on the high end of the “thousands” category). That means each state gets about 180 buns. Talk about generosity! We can all learn a valuable lesson from KFC… and that lesson is, if you can’t give everyone a heart attack, try starving them to death.
