Yesterday was our first annual Double Down Thursday. Our opportunity to have our own private episode of (Wo)Man vs. Food and/or a coronary bypass.
For those unfamiliar with the Double Down, it is a true American celebration of gluttony consisting of two pieces of fried chicken surrounding tasty strips of bacon and the finest processed cheese. If you really want to show your national pride, be sure to wash it down with a Diet Coke!
He which hath no stomach to this sandwich,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for a salad put into his purse;
We would not dine in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to dine with us.
This day is called the feast of Double Down.
He that outlives this day, and goes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Col. Sanders.
Let the feast begin!
