I think most of us will agree that fast food can be delicious and satisfying in the right place at the right time. Such as Rick’s Burgers on Dame St in Dublin, at 3am after a scatter of pints. However, there is some fast food that makes the skin crawl, which no amount of pints will improve.
For me, KFC is one of the worst offenders. The food is so unbelievably greasy, and the chips are rubbish (an unforgiveable crime for a fast food restaurant). On the few times that I’ve eaten it, I’ve felt like I needed a shower immediately afterwards. That’s why this headline in The Onion really made me laugh: KFC No Longer Permitted To Use Word ‘Eat’ In Advertisements.
Does anyone else feel the same about KFC? Or is it a different outlet that gives you the creeps? Which is your fast food horror, and why?
By the way, any fellow KFC-avoiders might also like this piece by comedian Patton Oswalt about KFC’s epically disgusting Famous Bowl, which is just a huge microwaved bowl of slop. It’s only available in the US, for obvious reasons.
