Christine

How about the Hardees commercials also?
They make me NOT want to eat at Hardees.

Sifu Jones

Jimmy, the day has come. We finally disagree on something.

I get a KFC bowl at least once a week, and wow it's awesome. It's like a salad for people who hate vegetables, like me.

I've even manage to lose weight with that monster in my diet, and that's hard since I'm only 15 or so pounds off my "fighting" weight. Granted, I consider it a treat and not a part of a balanced daily, but my what a treat it is.

I was able to whether the election results OK.

But now I am sad.

tim

What I really enjoy about the KFC commercials for this monstrosity is that the petite houswife is the one who orders it-- I mean, I can see a college frat type guy with 10 beers thinking this is a good idea, but a chick? Did they do any focus grouping here?

Yeah, I said chick.

tim

But I can't spell housewife.

Sifu Jones

That should be "weather" the election results. I'm so distraught I forgot how to spell.

Tim J.

The photo graphically reflects my feelings on politics, today.

Why don't they dump a pile of slaw on top of the whole thing? Now that would be a memorable dish.

Thomas A. Gill

Who remembers when Shake 'n Bake came out with their "new and improved original recipe"?

Shane

I'll second the notion that this food item is disgusting, but that's to me. This is one issue where being personally opposed but is a legitimate stance.

Old Zhou

Oh well.

When I read the title, "Stomach in a Bowl," I thought this was going to be about menudo.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menudo_%28soup%29

I can't remember the list time I patronized a KFC, but for my whole life I've said that the "C" stands for "critter," becuase you can never know for sure...

Brian John Schuettler

it's especially good if you have it with a large vanilla milkshake...awesome!

Brian John Schuettler

Just kidding!...I doubt that I would have lived to tell the tale...

Sifu Jones

Why, you're all a bunch of Finger Lickin' Heathens!

I dare you all to try one, THEN come tell us what you think. Who's with me?!

Ryan Herr

It's really funny to see this on jimmyakin.org ... I recently saw the TV commercial and also thought that this was the most disgusting looking thing that I've ever seen.

Brian John Schuettler

Just kidding!...I doubt that I would have lived to tell the tale...

Alan

Similarly, the San Diego zoo is continually promoted as "The World Famous San Diego Zoo"

Esau

The first time I saw this commercial way back when, I thought it looked like vomit!

joe

I don't get it. Maybe it's because I like to mix food together before I eat it. I'll mix corn with mashed potatoes or rice with a piece of steak and eat them together. Taste better that way to me. I always eat eggs or pancakes together with a bit of the breakfast meat. (On the few occasions I eat that stuff.) Bob Evans used to make a breakfast meal of an open omlette in a bowl with potatoes, sausage, some sort of gravy like topping and grated cheese. It was great (again on the few times I tried it).

As for the dietary amounts, if this is one of two meals a person eats in a day it can't be a horrible thing that they are getting half the daily recommended fat content can it? Or is it bad to take it in too quickly? As a "once in a while" meal, it hardly seems like a death penalty.

I've never tried this meal, and probably won't, so I can't say whether it's tasty or not. But it sure doesn't turn me off by presentation in the least.

Caine

My wife and I thought it was a joke. However, we've reached the point in America where the only thing that keeps the deep-fried Twinkie off the market is extreme restraint. Look for it soon!

4ddintx

The first time I saw the commercial I was in my first trimester of pregnancy (#5) and it almost made me need to run to the restroom. Now I'm in my third trimester and just about any food is appealing...and it still makes me want to run to the facilities!

I'm with you Jimmie...it appears to be pretty gross. I'm glad that someone likes it, but it's not for me!

'thann

That KFC bowl thingy would definitely appeal to me when I'm down in the dumps. It's the ultimate comfort food -- carbs/fats/salt be damned! (who wants to eat healthily when they're depressed???)

And I must say, Ray Kroc's Hula Burger (mentioned in your link) sounds intriguing enough for me to try it! What a weird combination!

Esau

So KFC seems successful in selling Vomit in a Bowl

What's next?

Taco Bell selling Diarrhea in a Burrito?

Ohhhh... wait... that's actually been done!

Sorry for the bad image ... ewwwwww!!!!

Had to lighten things up considering the long night!

cathomommy

mmmm, it looks sooooooooooo good! I want one right now! But then again, I am pregnant, so weird things seem appetizing to me...

Jeannette

First entry for the 2006 edition of "The Gallery of Regrettable Food".

Jason in SA

Sorry, going to have to re-read the post, I started dancing and shooting my imaginary pistols at the ceiling as soon as I saw the picture.

That looks like the greatest, most delicious cereal ever.

KWS

Sorry, but this doesn't strike me as all that different from shepherd's pie, which has been around for a while and is quite palatable; or chicken-pot-pie, minus mashed potatoes.

Jimmy's objections sound alot like the three-year-old inside all of us, protesting: "Eww! There's a pea that rolled into my mashed potatoes!"

I haven't seen the commercials, so maybe that's the source of the barf-factor. To each his own, I reckon.

EileenR

Nor do I want... cheese on gravy

Have you ever heard of Poutine? Gravy and cheese curds on French fries. Canada's big fast food dish.

Gosh, I'm starving. I think I'm going to go get some.

Dr. Eric

Hula Burger, what a Kroc!

Chad

My families been eating this kind of stuff for decades. You're one of those people who cannot stand to have their food touch aren't you? :)

Esau

I haven't seen the commercials, so maybe that's the source of the barf-factor. To each his own, I reckon.

You got to have seen the commercial in order to understand why when I first saw it, it struck me as VOMIT in a bowl!

They actually showed the seperate items that would go into the bowl sequentially as they fell into the bowl (at least, this was the one that aired in my area).

It looked no different than the stuff hurling out of somebody's mouth after a bad night of partying!

AnonnyMouse

The first time it aired on tv our 9 & 11 year old said together "EEEEEEWWWWWW GROSS"
Not wanting to be unheard, our 2year old said
"YUCK"
NOW keep in mind, they don't mind mixing it themselves but they want it separately on the plate, they want to mix the corn with the potatoes themselves.
I will never waste my money on it for sure!!
That was interesting, Jimmy, about the heartattacks being more after Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Esau

The first time it aired on tv our 9 & 11 year old said together "EEEEEEWWWWWW GROSS"

The first time it aired, I couldn't stop laughing! I thought it was one of those fake commercials that would come out every once in a while.

Then, when I found out it was actually a real commercial, I just rolled off the floor!

JohnD

I don't have strong feelings about it, but I bet the folks at KFC were trying to make their food look more like Mexican food.

I somewhat doubt that the consumers of Mexican food will fall for it. They would have been better off making chili powdered jalepeno Chicken.

MarkB

I agree with Jimmy. When I first saw the commercial, well, let's just say it's a good thing someone didn't take a picture of me right then. The look of disgust!!

And then, the first comment from Christine. I agree (although it's Carl's Jr in California), seeing and hearing people eat is not real appetizing to me either.

Steven Andrews

Fat? Carbs? Salt? All mixed together in a bowl?

What's not to like? I say, bring it on!

JohnH

While this thing strikes me as unhealthy (not any more so than most other fast food), I don't get the 'stomach in a bowl yuck' thing. Just last night I made macaroni and cheese, and I just added the peas and tuna fish right into the pot. One pot cooking, yum!

Kate

Mmmm....When I first saw the commercial, I thought...weird, someone's been watching me eat! I love to pile my potatoes, meat, corn/peas, gravy up together when I eat a big dinner. Sure, add cheese! Maybe I wouldn't eat it regularily if I was watching my weight, but as comfort food occasionally....yum!

Esau

Okay... After JohnH's and Kate's posts above... I think I just might... yeah, I think just might...oh no, here it comes...

H-U-R-L!!! ;^)

(add to that, the picture that Jimmy posted ain't helpin'!)

Jared Weber

My wife would like to register her disgust ... WITH ALL YOU NAYSAYERS!

She loves these. The only flaw she sees is the lack of sugar.

Tom Hockel

You are so right on about this! Makes me gag everytime I see the ads.

Reminds me of one of these tacos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEF-3PiQdq0

Esau

Actually, you know how I mentioned the particular KFC commercial that aired in my area, showing the seperate items falling into the bowl sequentially?

SNIP

Apologies for the graphic picture there!

I mean, just look at the thing -- generous serving of creamy mashed potatoes --> layered with sweet corn --> loaded with bite-sized pieces of crispy chicken --> drizzled with gravy and top it off with a shredded three-cheese blend!


I think this calls for that famous song from Parenthood (censored version, of course)!

SNIP

Ed Pie

I dunno, it makes me think of a hot-dish equivalent to Togo's Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich: turkey, dressing, gravy, and cranberries on a sub roll. It wasn't bad, just confusing. Not that I don't get how a confusing food can be off-putting.

Realist

Sifu Jones and the other KFC Famous Bowl lovers, add me to your list. I only wish they had more of that Famous Original Recipe Kentucky Fried Chicken (the all-time best chicken) in the bowl. Next time I will order it with an extra helping of chicken or maybe a blend with those Famous Boneless Wings!!! "Yum, yum in the tummy"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I take my "Ruler One" and leave.

ruth

I'm starting to form a theory about Catholics and health/environment issues. Hey I'm Catholic and I look at that commercial and wonder how many grams of trans fat is in it, if the chicken that was used was pumped up with hormones and antibiotics, how much pesticide residue still clings to the flaccid yellow corn adorning the bowl as the only 'vegitable.' But, hey I eat organic and believe in stewardship and think that kfc is basically like metabolising a heresy...false, false food with no nutrition.
But, hey I was raised in California...Catholic but Crunchy.

Kris

As a Kentuckian, and therefore a lover of KFC, fried chicken, and gravy I whole-heartedly object to Jimmy's objection to the KFC Famous Bowls. They are delicious. KFC has never been known as a health-food restaraunt, nor shall it ever. To eat there, and ecspecially to eat such a tasty combination of foods that make up a Famous Bowl is to enjoy taste, not nutrition.

ruth

That's the problem; who says that healthy food doesn't taste good? Does something have to be so bad(trans-fats...) that your body doesn't even recognize the fats as being a 'fat' and it sits in your body well after decomposition occures. (slight hyperbole ) Indeed those trans fats may be hanging around the synthetic fibers of caskets far into the future and they may witness the ressurection of the faithful. That's just not natural man. Eat the food that God gave us, we don't need to cook something else up by splitting molecules in test labs... Food heresy!

Esau

Hey I'm Catholic and I look at that commercial and wonder how many grams of trans fat is in it...

Actually...check this out:
KFC joins war against trans fat

Excerpt:
The war against trans fat registered a major victory on Monday as Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) -- whose main course is deep fried -- announced that it would remove the artery-clogging substance from its fryers.

KFC said it would replace partially hydrogenated soybean oil with a type of soybean oil that does not contain trans fat at its 5,500 restaurants in the US.

The conversion, which came after two years of testing, is expected to be completed by April. While trans fat will be eliminated from KFC's chicken and its other fried products, it will remain in its biscuits, potpies and some desserts because a good alternative has not yet been found.

ruth

They may be in Rcia but they haven't been baptized yet.

Tim M.

I really can't believe that this is here...

I just love the KFC Bowl - I also have one about one per week. To me, it is the perfect serving size and tastes great... yes, kind of like Shepherd's Pie. I also grew up mixing my food together.

I can't believe the strong sentiments above. Hey, no one has a gun to your head forcing you to order one.

This reminds me of people that I know that are on a diet and get a Big Mac and a Diet Coke... so that makes about 1000 and one calories.

and if you are going to start blogs about stupid commercials on TV... let's do it.

I will start with the ads for every company that sells every pickup truck or SUV.

my stomach is ok... it's my intelligence that is being assaulted.

Phil M.

Trans-fats? Listen up folks, a bunch of our food industry people are using a loophole in this whole trans-fat issue. They are starting to use "fully hydrogenated" oils in it's place. I don't mean to get into organic chemistry, but technically, if you fully hydrogenate a fat or oil, there are no trans-fats present. However, this new oil/fat is even farther from natural than before. Just say no.

Kris

sniff sniff...hmmm...i smell nasty organic food and yankee cooking...

Jared Weber

Look, I'm not a big fan of this meal myself (unlike, again, the missus) but, some of y'all have taken this a bit far.

Hey, Ruth, I have two titanium plates in my hand and 12 total screws in my body. I'm sure the worms will have had a delicious trans-fat luncheon (and be long gone) long before those ever disintegrate.

Besides, didn't God give us our intellect to be able to do things like perform surgery and create new food sources?

Jared Weber

I am of course, just joking around. I'm still disturbed by the fact that "Realist" and I agree on something.

David B.

"I have two titanium plates in my hand and 12 total screws in my body."


There goes my dream of being a Stunt-man/Actor. :-)

Jeff

I like gravy on meatballs...

Some Day

Does chicken breast have veins?

ruth

"Besides, didn't God give us our intellect to be able to do things like perform surgery and create new food sources?"

Web, isn't that a faulty line of logic that many use for 1) invitro fertilization 2) artificial contraception? The logic is flawed.
I am not saying that dogmatically they are the same....sometimes what our body can metabolize best is what we were made to eat. Trans fats are just like putting plastic into your body when your body needs some....butter, good old fashion fat. ; - )

ruth

And by the way Kris, My family now lives in Kentucky....which has one of the worst health crisis of obesity, cancer, and diabetes....well except for the Native American populations in the southwest who love fast food.
Yet still, I do love Kentucky, Bishop Flaget and the Catholic respit of Nelson County, Pottingers field where the Catholics of Maryland fled to because of persicution.

ruth

oops....persecution.

Esau

Y'all certainly take your food almost as seriously as you would an apologetics argument! ;^)

Now, let's all make peace and join hands and will y'all just join me in singing a verse or two of our spiritual hymn:

SNIP ;^)

Some Day

Stultus Numero Infinitus Est

(i think that is right)

Jared Weber

Ruth: It was meant tongue-in-cheek. At the same time, I'd wonder if there are any moral laws that are transgressed by eating transfat. Is MSG consumption listed in the Catechism anywhere?

David B: Sorry to be the one to crush your hopes and dreams. But someone was gonna try to crush 'em, so I figured "Hey, what the heck; why not me?"

Jared Weber

Esau: I won't join hands to sing, but uh, that song might be better than some I've heard at Mass.

ruth

Web, sometimes the transgressions of asthetics and common sense are enough.
So sad. I need some organic butter and some red wine.......

Esau

Esau: I won't join hands to sing, but uh, that song might be better than some I've heard at Mass.

Mr. Weber, Sir, as much as I'd hate to say it, I certainly might agree with you there! Most unfortunate, isn't it???? =^(

Esau

Crap, messed up my sad face, darn'it!
=^(

(oooopppssss... shouldn't have said the "C" word after all that!)

Jared Weber

Hey, I live in Los Angeles right now, so I know from transgressions of aesthetics. Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral, anyone? And common sense ... well, as I said, I live in LaLaLand.

Organic butter? Why not get some Olestra (tm)?

ruth

Have you not heard what olestra does to the digestive function....? Esau's song would be on point.

St. Jimbob of the Apokalypse

It's Like a "Mr. Creosote" appetizer:

Maitre D: And maintenant, would monsieur care for an aperitif?

[Creosote vomits over the menu. It is covered.]

Or would you prefer to order straight away? Today for appetizers... er... excuse me...

[The Maitre D leans over and wipes away the sick with his hand so that the words of the menu are readable.]

... moules marinieres, pate de foie gras, beluga caviar, eggs Benedictine, tart de poireaux - that's leek tart - frogs' legs amandine or oeufs de caille Richard Shepherd - c'est a dire, little quails' eggs on a bed of pureed mushrooms, it's very delicate, very subtle...

Mr Creosote: I'll have the lot.

Maitre D: A wise choice, monsieur! And now, how would you like it served? All mixed up in a bucket?

Mr Creosote: Yes. With the eggs on top.

Maitre D: But of course, avec les oeufs frites.

Mr Creosote: And don't skimp on the pate.

Maitre D: Oh monsieur I can assure you, just because it is mixed up with all the other things we would not dream of giving you less than the full amount. In fact I will personally make sure you have a *double* helping. Maintenant quelque chose a boire - something to drink, monsieur?

Mr Creosote: Yeah, six bottles of Chateau Latour '45 and a double Jeroboam of champagne.

Maitre D: Bon, and the usual brown ales...?

Mr Creosote: Yeah... No wait a minute... I think I can only manage six crates today.

ruth

Isn't that a Monty Python skit? So Funny.

Charlotte

I guess now isn't the time to admit that my family has a post holiday tradition called Thanksgiving Mush. You layer turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy in a bowl, heat it up and mix it around. I have heard of people who also add cranberry sauce to this, but we never did. I thought this was a "Texas thang", but since Jimmy is from these parts and seems disturbed by this type of culinary creation, I guess not.

While I have never tried one of the KFC bowls, I agree that it sounds similar to a Shepherd's Pie, albeit a deep fried shepherd's pie with cheese on top!

Franklin Jennings

Doesn't look very good to me, but jeeze.

"Its got too much fat!" "Its got too much salt!" "Its got too many carbs!"

Turn in your hat and boots, Mr. Akin, and go sip a white wine spritzer.

Monica

it would be a lot better if they deep fried the whole thing. Actually, it is just like shepherds pie only with cheese. Which I love, otherwise it seems gross. I don't use fried chicken in my shepherds pie, nor that much salt.

We eat el pollo loco at our house, which is roaster rather than deep fried.

Laura

Now,
I like shepard's pie. In fact, I actually love mixing some of my foods together like corn, mashed potatoes and gravy but there are three things keeping me from ever trying one of these bowls. Firstly, my family and I had come home late from a Memorial day trip and we didn't have anything to cook. Someone suggested KFC and so my mother and I went to get it. I hadn't had it in about ten years and soon discovered why. All the artifical flavors they put in the spices in the chicken threw me right into an asthma attack... miles of fun. Reason two is that I really don't like shredded cheese on stuff. I mean I like it on tochos and pizza and things like that but not on fries, or hotdish or chili or stuff like that so this loses it's apeal very quickly with the adding of cheese. I actually remember saying to my sister upon seeing the add for the first time, it would be ok if they dropped the cheese. The last reason is in agreement with what others have already said, too much fat, too much salt and way way too much carbs. This really makes me want to kick-start weight-watchers this Sunday, wish me luck!

Mary

After trying it, I suspect that KFC invented the "bowl" as a way to dispose of leftover food. Scrape the leavings from the bottom of the pan and serve'm up. Bland and nasty!

Now Pollo Loco is a different matter -- sabroso!

:)

AnonnyMouse

My stomach was sore after the election results this morning.please have mercy on me and my stomach....the more I read....the more it aches.....

BTW I like the dressing, gravy, trukey and cranberry sauce together.

I think it was the way KFC presented it.


Esau

Have you not heard what olestra does to the digestive function....? Esau's song would be on point.

Hallelujah, Sistah, will you sing it with me! =^)

Can I get an "AMEN"! ;^)

Esau

After trying it, I suspect that KFC invented the "bowl" as a way to dispose of leftover food. Scrape the leavings from the bottom of the pan and serve'm up.

What a great way both to save and make money -- out of people's leftovers!!! MMMmmmmmm....mmmmm...GOOD!

CaeliDS

MMMM...layers of fat and salt. Now that's really flavor. Can't wait for the lawsuits to start rolling in.

CaeliDS

Hope that worked.

Francis DS

I guess that Bowl's how orthodox Catholicism looks like to cafeteria Catholics. You get the whole 'mess' and can't pick and choose.


Matt

If it came without gravy I might try it. (But then I remember those are heathen mashed potatoes, not the real thing. :) )

Karen

This reminds me of people that I know that are on a diet and get a Big Mac and a Diet Coke... so that makes about 1000 and one calories.

I hear people say this often but it never fails to chap me. Maybe someone's having a rare treat day, but the extra few hundred calories in a normal Coke is something they'd rather not have. Every little bit does add up. Just because you treat yourself once in a while doesn't mean you have to go all out AND get the useless sugar too. Big Macs have 560 calories. A large McDonald's coke is 310 calories. That's a high payload just for something to wash your other 560 calories down. That's about an hour of walking. That 310 calories saved could be applied to another meal during the day in a much better way. I say, kudos to any person who does this, and leave them alone when they do. The choice does make a difference in the right direction.

Everything all mixed together?

"I want it on the side" ~Sally Albright

LarryD

Can't wait for KFC to start marketing haggis in a bowl...mmm mmm good!!!

Jeffrey

Looks great, and I second the Poutine comment.

Floaty

Oh! when to see Jim to tell about this food, no good...no good. Ew.

To those who don't understand a Big Mac with Diet Coke, some of us crave fried foods, but not sweets. A Diet Coke is sweet enough for me.

SDG

Best. Combox. Ever.

Steve

Hey. Where's my comment? I'll say it again...

I say we all donat a one year lunch supply of these things to all the new house and senate leadership.

One year should do it, ya think?

Barbara

O.K., apparently I became anonymous again. I'm going to have to keep track of how often this happens. Seems like it's every couple of months.

Marty

WRT the Big Mac and Diet Coke discussion: Granted some people might be saving their calories on a rare treat day. But, by the looks of most people who do this, I doubt it. (And anyway, who with any taste would consider fast food a treat?) People are both amazingly ignorant about nutrition and prone to extreme rationalization when bellying up for their fat fixes. The same kind of thinking would have a person go to Wendy's, order the salad bar, and then proceed to smother the greens with bacon bits, croutons and a cup of dressing. Salad bars are probably the biggest "killers" because the amount of extra calories you can put on a supposedly "good for you" meal is limitless.

When I saw the ad for the KFC bowl, I was pretty disgusted. To each his own, I guess, but I can't imagine the thing catching on.

Mark Scott Abeln

Oh, so, so, so, so funny!

Thank you Jimmy for starting this!


But haven't you noticed that the cuisines of traditionally Catholic countries are usually superior? Just think of Italy, France, Spain, and Mexico. And the traditional food in Orthodox countries is very good too. And we might add in the cuisines of countries that have an ancient Natural Law tradition, such as China, India, and Japan. The Natural Law has much to do with the transfat/sugar issue, I would think; I'd love to see a good Thomistic analysis of cuisine.

Also, I think this has a lot to do with the modern opposition between art and utility. Obviously, the stomach-bowl does provide energy for living, so it is very utilitarian, but it lacks beauty. To the ancients though, everything made is art, and beauty should be a part of everything good, including food.

AnonnyMouse

One more thing that trumps this KFC concoction...
Remember Krystal and the chili commerical where chili was flung on everyone and everything...but it looked like something else..? Did anyone want to go out and have THAT added to their french fries or burger? Our family agrees with Jimmy, it is the way they presented it. YUCK.

In the same vein, if ya'll get the chance, read "Omnivore's Delemma" by Michael Pollan. A great read about food.

Yes. It's about food... and it IS a great read. Honest.

Make that "Omnivore's Dilemma"

Sifu Jones

Well come on now, they also have a rice version instead of mashed potatoes.

Ruth, are you making one of those "if God meant us to fly, he would've given us wings" arguments? Just because God didn't make it with His own two hands doesn't mean we can't use it when WE make it. Obviously sometimes we can't (in-vitro, contraception), but other times we can (books, cars, KFC bowls).

Besides, if there's any sin in doing something "less" healthy rather than the "most" healthy possibility, it would then be sinful to smoke, drink beer, or eat even an ounce more nutrition than we actually need. And don't even get me started on not doing enough exercise, or (God fobid) doing too MUCH exercise!

I suppose I've seen one too many people fall into honest-to-goodness scrupulosity over FOOD to take health food craziness lying down. I save my lying down for when I've had one too many fried twinkies.

And yes, they're really good.

Fr. Stephanos, O.S.B.

I can't believe I ate kata holos.

Tim M.

and if you are not from Hawai'i, I can't believe that anyone would eat poi.

"...sometimes what our body can metabolize best is what we were made to eat. Trans fats are just like putting plastic into your body when your body needs some....butter, good old fashion fat. ; - )"

Ruth - you hit the nail on the proverbial head.

Question of the day: what happened in the food industry in the mid-1980's, about the time the rate of obesity in the USA started to balloon (no pun intended)?

Answer: the forced introduction into the food chain of "High Fructose Corn Syrup" (HFCS) replacing sugar.

HFCS is in EVERYTHING (just look at ingredients of everything you buy and eat / drink) and studies show that there is no way for the body to metabolize HFCS, as well as Trans Fat - thus, it just stores up in fat cells.


Realist

How can these all-natural foods be all-natural when they are cleaned with synthetic detergents and rinsed with water purified with all types of chemicals? Without cleaning, we would all be affected by those little all-natural bugs call E-Coli and Salmonella.

And by the way, most of the kids that work at our KFC are from the local Catholic high school. Without KFC, they would not be able to pay their tuition.

Bring me another Famous Bowl but user a bigger bowl!!!

Esau

How can these all-natural foods be all-natural when they are cleaned with synthetic detergents and rinsed with water purified with all types of chemicals? Without cleaning, we would all be affected by those little all-natural bugs call E-Coli and Salmonella.

Realist,
What's with this extreme obsession you have with cleanliness? You practically were saying the same thing as regards the reception of Holy Communion in Church?

Brutha, that may mean you've got some unresolved issues and need to do some soul-searching and go to confession. Believe me, there's a reason Jesus established it! =^)


And by the way, most of the kids that work at our KFC are from the local Catholic high school. Without KFC, they would not be able to pay their tuition.

I don't think people found anything wrong with KFC but with the famous bowl itself (at least, mine in particular!).

High school ehhh--isn't there a law about some folks who shouldn't be allowed... never mind!
(now, that was a rather bad joke! apologies...)
