KFC Famous Bowl

I want to proclaim my love for the ingenious creation of the KFC Famous Bowl. It is goddamn delicious and combines many of my favorite treats that I would be mixing together anyways into a convenient bowl. IT'S ALSO CLASSY AS HELL, YOU WILL LOOK LIKE A GENTLEMAN EATING IT BECAUSE YOU WILL BE NEAT AND ONLY DEALING WITH ONE BOWL INSTEAD OF EATING BY HAND A CHICKEN DRUMSTICK AND MULTIPLE ITEMS THAT COULD BE SPILLED OR TOPPLED OVER ONTO THE TABLE.

I only wish they would add some macaroni and cheese into the bowl.

Oh and P.S. this kind of thing has been around for ages...it's called SHEPHERD'S PIE and my grandmother makes them. This is simply a modern, KFC version of a Shepherd's pie. (oh and chicken pot pie too)

I find it amusing that people are so horrified by the idea of multiple food items being present in a single bowl. It's not "mixed together" or 'blended' it's layered and convenient. They don't stir it up ffs. Check out some of these comments I've found on these snob's blogs:
It's one thing to say Americans eat like pigs, it's another to give it the force of literalism.
It... brazenly exposes its own purpose: to economically pack the gullets of the poor. Gone is even the pretense that someone might eat this for its taste. This is gerbil food for the disenfranchised.
Why not go all the way and top the Famous Bowls with an apple pie and pour Coca-Cola over them? To save customers the struggle to pocket their change at the drive-thru, why not throw it on top as well?

That's right - consuming this menu item makes us pigs...disenfranchised...poor...

So which side are you on? Would you eat a chicken pot pie, shepherd's pie, or KFC famous bowl? Or are you of the camp that sees this as another manifestation of the fat wal-mart 'Merka you so hate to live in?

    I had lunch at America's Dog today.

    I had a Louisiana dog, minus the tomato. That's a 100% beef hot dog, with grilled onions and bbq sauce.

    It was delicious.

    But they're also much more expensive, so you get what you pay for.

    KFC has some awesome sides though. I occasionally go in just for the mac & cheese and mashed potatoes.

    This is one of my food goals. Real ramen. We've got like a shitton of sushi places around here but none of them serve ramen.

    I had kfc the other day, but have not worked my way up (down?) to ordering one of those bowls yet. This seems like a good time to randomly talk about One Piece

    So Trafalgar Law has a bear as a member of his pirate crew. This bear wears people clothes and carries a sword. That is something you don't see bears do very often.

    i want to go to a noodle house. i've been to lots of places in chinatown where you can get bowls of noodles (usually vietnamese stuff), but I want to travel to the far east, and return with tales of noodles and various spices. And the most flexible of women.

    Generally speaking I find animals wearing people clothes an endless source of distress.

    Except instead I will cook my own chicken, corn and mashed potatoes and put it together in a bowl.
