Eating establishments known as “breastaurants” — which pretty much means exactly what you think it does — are gaining in popularity, as chains with names like Twin Peaks and Tilted Kilt compete with Hooters (which brings in about $1 billion a year in revenue) to offer “a different level of service and attentiveness” to their customers.
This Sunday, May 23, was to have been the final day for grease and salt lovers everywhere to get their hands on the KFC Double Down, which for the two of you just waking from comas is a bacon and cheese sandwich that uses fried chicken as the bread. But before you go and unclog your arteries, KFC has just announced that the Double Down ain’t going anywhere anytime soon.
As the country is overtaken by an insatiable desire to eat — or at least talk about — KFC’s latest heart-stopping creation, the breadless sandwich wonder known as the Double Down, Stephen Colbert is jumping on the deep fried train, dubbing it “the warped creation of a syphilitic brain.”
