Oh those crazy KFC folks!

Talk about a megamunching sensory overload. I was watching a Mets game on TV this weekend and a commercial for the new KFC Cheesy Chicken Mashed Potato Bowl came on. Look at this thing! It's Thanksgiving leftovers all rolled into one foodgasmic, blissful bowl.

To be honest, as the commercial progressed I laughed out loud because I had flashbacks to that
Taco Town commercial spoof on SNL in which an announcer keeps interrupting the guys to add more layers and more ingredients to their tacos. The end result is a crunchy all beef taco smothered in nacho cheese, lettuce, tomato, and special Southwestern sauce; wrapped in a soft flour tortilla with a layer of re-fried beans in between; wrapped in a savory corn tortilla with a middle layer of Monterrey jack cheese; wrapped in a deep fried gordita shell smeared with a layer of special 'guacomolito' sauce; wrapped in a corn husk filled with pico de gallo; wrapped in an authentic Parisian crepe filled with egg, gruyere, sausage and portobello mushrooms; wrapped in a Chicago-style, deep-dish, meat lover's pizza; rolled up in a blueberry pancake; dipped in batter and deep fried until it's golden brown; and served in a commemorative tote bag filled with spicy vegetarian chili.

Anyhow, that's what this KFC Cheesy Chicken Mashed Potato Bowl reminded me of, except it's real. Imagine if other fast food restuarants did this? Wendy's could unveil the French Fried Chili Frosty Triple Cheeseburger Salad. Burger King could take "Have it your way" to a whole new level by giving you access to all the ingredients on the menu and then, after creating a heaping plate of meat and cheese and hash browns, you hand your creation over to the kid behind the counter who then dips the whole thing in that awesome french fry batter and plops your bowling ball-sized lunch into the fry cooker. Wouldn't that be great? Oh, you bet your sweet cholesterol level it would!

That's the exact same reaction I had. Sometimes I have to turn the commercial off because it is SO distressing that it's not a joke! People want cheese on their gravy and fried chicken. And potatoes and corn.
See, I'm freaking out a little now.

Great illustration!

Yeah, it's like all the things you'd normally put on your plate and mix up a little bit anyhow (except for the cheese).

As for the illustration, thanks. I, er, found it somewhere? (Okay, okay, I created it in Microsoft Paint, but only because I was bored and the game was a bust! For the record, Heather saw me creating it and said I was officially "weird.")
