KFC Rewards Lent

There were hundreds of people that stood in line at the Apple Stores this morning for the launch of the i-Pad. So Apple will change the face of personal computing and communication once again.  Ho-hum.

THIS however, is news.

Thank God Kentucky Fried Chicken introduces its new lethal sandwich after Lent.  It is bacon and cheese between two slabs of fried chicken-as-bread. The Colonel is the "Steve Jobs of Fast Food". This is sheer culinary genius. I'm in line on April 12 for ...

The timing is no coincidence, I'm sure.

I think I'll go camp out overnight. (It better be better than Episode 1.)

On a similar line of thought, picked up a 16 piece set-up from Popeyes for the post-vigil feast. Car smelled so good, I followed it home.

Gee... I wonder who will bring the beans tonight?

How often can you squeeze forty days worth of cholesterol into one meal? Impressive. Frightening, but impressive.

Ruggles, Yup Taco Town is one of my favorite Paschal commercials, unfortunately it is not real while KFC is. Indeed 53 grams of fat in one sandwich as opposed to 4 tenths of a gram in one cup of lentils... I can make up for all of Lent in one meal plus have left over for the Apostle's Fast. Whoo hoo!

Steve, I'll stand behind you to pass the bottle of Zetia to you after you eat it. :)

What do the canons say about marrying a sandwich?

Christ is Risen!!

If only they had come out with this before I was tonsured...

Anon, I don't think the Canons address this issue, but as Monk Michael's comment indicates, perhaps if they had KFC Double Downs catered at the First Ecumenical Council there would be some economias offered. :)

Steven, since you are so set on trying the "Double Down" and since there is still a week to go, I thought you might find some information from this site.

(Since you are not fat, you actually might be able to get away with eating some of these things).

Remember..., "Christ Is Risen!"

Bernie, When I stopped doing manual labor for 3 years and just "managed" my business I gained almost 50 pounds. I'm blessed that I do physical work so I can eat crap like this and not gain weight. If I ever stop doing construction my diet will DEFINITELY have to change or I'll become a blimp.

I think they call it a double down because if one eats it, not only will he/she get a heart attack, but the person standing next to you also.

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood *between 2 original pieces of fried chicken sandwiched with melted cheese & bacon* and you would not!" MT 23:37

*some manuscripts omit the Double Down verses* ;)

s-p said...

Abe, yeah, it could be called the "Chuckolesterol Norris Sandwich" too.

oruaseht, LOL! They only put it in the margins of the "Cotton Patch Bible". (If you are old enough to remember that...)

Thanks for the tip! Just got mine for Radonitsa, and I could swear it responded, "Voistinu Voskrese!"
