Remember that gut-busting, heart-massacring, quadruple-bypass-on-a-plate menu item that KFC released in the Philippines a few days ago?
Until a few hours ago, I could have laughed it off as a slightly early (or horribly late) April Fools’ Day joke…
…but that ceased to be a viable option when I saw an image of the beast on the menu of a KFC restaurant in my neighbourhood. (Yes, this is new – I snapped the picture earlier today.) It seems the, er, thing has graduated from the initial 2-day trial phase and is now seeing a much wider – perhaps longer term – release.
But wait, it gets better! Or worse, depending on your sense of humour and the state of your arteries. Shift your eyes downwards just a wee bit and see what they’re advertising directly underneath that thing.
As the parody persona of a certain Eastern philosopher might say: “Man who eat double down dog is dead man.”
And in case you were wondering, I had bibimbap for lunch instead … which is why I regret to report that I’m still very much alive.
