What WERE they thingking?!

ck: Yes, revolting. It's teenage heart attack promotion. Gravy's in there, on 
top (?). Notice that the guy ordering isn't exactly slim, either. When I first 
saw this ad, I was watching SNL. Thought it was a skit--that's how gross the 
concoction seemed.

I'd better do something about this summer procrastination before it's August. 
Right now, though, I'm celebrating.

  Liverwurst is evil.  Have you seen the latest concoction KFC is advertising?  
Mashed potatoes, a layer of corn on top, a layer of chicken strips on top of 
that, and all topped with a melted cheese layer.  (I think there may be gravy 
in there somewhere but I can't recall where.)

  While we're reminiscing about English "cuisine", has anyone ever had Baked 
  Beans on Toast with Cheese on top? mmm mmm mmm, I still eat that a couple 
  of times a month. Fast, cheap and out of control. My friend thinks I'm 
  nuts, but he eats liverworst on dry toast so I can't trust him.
