KFC Double Down: Destroyer Of Touchscreens

KFC's Double Down will kill you someday. But we wanted to see what eating the greasiest finger-food known to mankind would do to a touchscreen device. The result: A disabled iPad and two ruined stomachs.

The Double Down, for the uninitiated, is a breadless sandwich: two oversized chicken patties between which lie two bacon strips, two cheese slices and "special" sauce that's anything but. The less said about the taste the better, other than it's possibly the saltiest - and, most importantly, greasiest - thing we've ever eaten, especially with our bare hands.

More to the point: if you attempt to consume this thing and use a touchscreen device - be it phone, tablet, ebook reader or other - be prepared to render touchscreen device rank and unusable, its joys obscured by a thick film of fat and grease and sauce and self-loathing. Which would be a shame, since for every Double Down you eat you've got so much less time left on this earth to enjoy them. [Special thanks and apologies to Kyle and his iPad]


    I didn't know what was missing from my life until I heard the desription of the KFC Double Down.

      You two???

    Probably use a napkin. Something to think about.

    wow you guys are idiots.....why would u even bother with eating the Double Down and using a touch screen? no sane person with common sense would do it. a NORMAL person would eat it then AFTER washing their hands use the touchscreen, or else they'd use a NAPKIN, but i guess u guys never heard of such things as napkins.

      that is the JOKE.
