When I first heard about the oily monstrosity known as KFC’s Double Down sandwich, it seemed like a practical joke, or an Onion story that made it into the pop-culture bloodstream and was mistaken for fact. Surely even the sick fucks at Kentucky Fried Chicken, the mad scientists of fried poultry behind occasional A.V. Club contributor Patton Oswalt’s beloved Famous Bowl, would not be deranged enough to make a sandwich that substituted thick, greasy, deep-fried chicken-breast patties for buns. Sure enough, the Double Down quickly attained the status of an urban legend. As its reputation grew, rumors spread that it was a chicken sandwich that stuck a chicken breast in between two chicken-breast “buns” for the gastronomic grease-orgy to end all gastronomic grease-orgies. Amazingly, the actual Double Down is even more disgusting and less healthy than the fried-chicken ménage a trois of the public imagination.
