WHILE MY LIFETIME FOCUS REMAINS THE HUMANITIES, AFTER MANY YEARS OF ACADEMIC WRITING, WITH MY SENSE OF SARCASM HEIGHTENED, I HAVE RE-KINDLED MY INTEREST IN TRAVEL AND HUMOR. I AM NOW WORKING IN THE GENRE OF HUMOR AND RE-VISITING THE BRIGHTER SIDE OF LIFE. OF COURSE, I AM ALSO SEEKING AN AGENT AND A PUBLISHER FOR MY CURRENT WORK IN PROGRESS. IN THE INTERIM, I POST A GREAT DEAL ABOUT THE HUMAN CONDITION.

Are Terrific Buns Important?
Would you believe it is possible for KFC to be larger than
the State of Kentucky? According to the Huffington Post, change is on the
horizon. It appears likely to reach its peak during our children’s lifetimes. In
fact NASA is already training a team of (Russian) astronauts to explore the
future corporate planet for signs of life.
Like most fast food conglomerates, KFC is progressing. Many healthy
Americans have been enjoying the "Double Down King," complete with two
slabs of fried chicken, covered with bacon and doused with a cholesterol-fighting
cheese spread for years. That is all about to change.
Our loved ones are soon to be blessed with the "Zinger Double
Down King." This lump of power food is Bun-less (presumably to cut back on
caloric intake). The fried chicken in this delicacy is infused with an energetic
meat patty in the middle along with an appetizing, low-salt, low-calorie
mystery sauce to get that heart pumping. The new item went on sale in South
Korea this month, probably to make certain their soldiers could catch any North
Korean spies running across the border.
I can’t wait for Super Bowl Sunday so I can kill two birds
with one stone. I plan to purchase five dozen of these beauties for the guys at
my party. I am sure to go right to the top of their popularity list. It will
also elevate me in the eyes of their wives and girlfriends who will not have to
worry about being dragged to the boring game next year.
