America's self-appointed nutrition police are very upset with KFC for this dangerous combination of fried chicken, fatty bacon, and artery clogging cheese, all slathered with a mayonnaise sauce.

The Obama Administration may sue.  "How dare they call it a sandwich, it has no buns!" Exclaimed an angry, apple-shaped bureaucrat.

All that food makes me thirsty for a beer!  Here's a Salvator, brewed by the Paulaner Brauerei in Bayern, Deutschland.  I'm sure the nutrition nannies would frown on this as well.  Like all German beers that end in "ator," it has a very high alcohol content, 7.5%!  Beers normally have between 3 to 5 percent alcohol content

Oy, I'm getting stuffed.
But it feels so good!

Silverfiddle said...

Especially if you wash it down with a beer!

Finntann said...

What you failed to mention was that in addition to the 38 grams of saturated fat, the Baconator contains 62 grams total fat.

Close your eyes for a minute and picture a bowl containing 62 grams of eat it...



Silverfiddle said...

My point is that if someone wants to sell a gallon bowl of bacon grease so a customer can stick a straw in it and suck it down, the government has no business standing in the way of the transaction.

What a coincidence! I tend to keep several tabs going at once, so I can transition easily from blogger to blogger. Richard Nikoley over at has an article about the "double down" sandwich. As a paleo eater, void of saturated fat guilt, I can think of worse things to eat. But the first thing I would do if ever I am in a pinch to eat a fast food sandwich like this, is throw the bread away. Mean while though, I'll stick to grass fed beef.

William said...

I was actually referring to the "baconator," in my previous comment.

"How dare they call it a sandwich, it has no buns!" Well neither does Obama!

Can I get those wonderful looking meals delivered to my door? The beer is no problemo, I make my own.

This post doesn't actually argue anything.

Those sandwiches are ridiculous. They literally kill (though, perhaps, not immediately).

I agree that freedom is important, but some freedoms are less important than others. This is one of those freedoms.

Canadian Pragmatist said...

Isn't gluttony a deadly sin 'reverend'?

It doesn't matter does it 'reverend'? As long as the bible says nothing about pedophilia.

Canadian Pragmatist said...

Ahhhhh... Good to be back.

Canadian Pragmatist said...

Thanks for the clear up William! It really matters.

Snarky Basterd said...

Mmmm. Bacon. And beer! Nothing better for a Sunday morning.

Silverfiddle said...

Oh, CP, we missed ya!

You're right, this doesn't argue anything. With apologies to Freud, sometimes a blog post is just a blog post.

And please, keep the gratuitous remarks about pedophilia out of it. The bible does call it a sin, and those who engage in it are horrible monsters who should be executed.

By all means, slam the pedos, but please don't tar all men of the cloth with the same brush (especially Abouna. He's a good man with a nice family)

Most Rev. Gregori said...

To Canadian Pragmatist:

Why don't you show a little respect? Just for your information, NOT all priests engage in pedophilia. As an Orthodox Catholic Priest, I was married (wife is deceased) I raised four adopted sons and I have eight grandchildren, and I have never had nor tried to have sex with any of them.

I believe you owe me an apology, and if you don't want to apologize, then please refrain from directing any more comments toward me.

Have a good day and God bless.

Canadian Pragmatist said...

No apologies. I show respect when respect is due. If you had the letters prof,or dr in front of your name you might deserve some, but as it stands you stand for one the the largest, most greedy and immoral mafias in the world working out of their own country! The Holy See.

Silverfiddle said...

The title Doctor or Professor confers respect?


I have treated you with respect, CP, even when you insult my guest and me. It's about common human decency.

By all means, attack the ideas, but leave the personal attacks out of it. You really are too smart for that. It just makes you look precocious and immature.

Most Rev. Gregori said...

To Canadian Pragmatist:

Now you have shown just how ignorant you, besides being rude and disrespectful.

Go back and read what I said. I plainly stated that I am an Orthodox Catholic Bishop. If you had even a modicum of intelligence, you would know that the Orthodox Church is NOT part of the Holy See.

You have proved my contention that you liberals are all ignorant morons, devoid of even a semblance of a decent upbringing.

Good day sir.
