As mentioned in my post from a few hours ago, the KFC Skinwich isn't really real. The dead giveaway was in the list of locations of KFC's that were supposedly trying the sandwich out, in that site I linked to. The names of the cities were words like fake and bullshit spelled backwards. Admittedly, I probably wouldn't have caught it myself, if I didn't know to look for it. I'm not that smart, plus I really want to believe that there could be such a sandwich.
The prospect of a sandwich made entirely of the skin from fried chicken, plus cheese and bacon, must have been a little bit too tempting for some guy from the Chicago Tribune, who decided to make his own. I wanted to try one too, but I'm too lazy to go get a bucket of KFC and spend the time it would take to construct one. I'm like one of those monkeys who won't fuck to save his species. Lately, I've been having a hard time feeding myself. It's not that I haven't been eating. Obviously. It's just, I've been eating whatever bullshit I can get my hands on. I haven't eaten anything that didn't come from either a restaurant or my parents' house in a long time - and some of those weren't very good restaurants.
Maybe if the Skinwich becomes popular enough on the web, KFC will actually start selling it. After all, they do sell a cheese and bacon sandwich with bread made out of fried chicken. Like the Double Down, the Skinwich might be surprisingly healthy (McDonalds, Burger King and Wendy's all sell salads that are worse than the Double Down), because there's not that much meat. It could be a healthy, Jared from Subway-style, alternative to a cheeseburger.The guy from the Chicago Tribune said it tasted really good. He actually went so far as to call it amazing. I can't say I'm surprised.
