I say it can't be bad, just make sure you can loosen the belt you have when you are done

Geez, why not just dip the whole thing in batter and fry it up as one big glob 'o death?

But I guess it's better than this gawdawful concoction, a bacon-cheeseburger with Crispy Kreme donuts for buns (a favorite of Paula Deen -- really!):

This reminds me of a The Onion article depicting an injunction that prevented KFC from advertising any of their products as food or edible because ""The word 'eat' is legally permissible only in reference to substances appropriate for human consumption."

KFC Estimates that calorie count for the sandwich is only 590 calories.



The commercial for the product is out, but audio is not that super.

Only 590 calories? Do they say how many grams of fat? Or what percentage of the calories are nutritionally sound? That sandwich is a nightmare, two thin stips of chicken surrounded by a catastrophe of artery clogging fat. I hope it comes with a Surgeon General's warning.

To help out, hospital emergency rooms near any KFC restaurants could offer a special section. That way you can go and sign in, eat your sandwich in a nice little area with tables, and by the time you are done, they will be ready to see you and treat your heart attack before it gets worse.
