    I like meat so much I don't even need bread, just fry the meat and I'll use it for bread to make a friggin' bacon & cheese sandwich.

    America is so awesome it hurts sometimes (my heart, that is).

    Side note: I actually took a 4 mile run this morning for just looking at a picture of the Double Down.

    What's the most concise and accurate term for this beast? Is it a bacon & cheese, fried chicken sandwich? I suppose this is on par with one of the other more ridiculous American menu items that is often taken for granted: the ice cream sandwich. I mean really, you take two cookies and jam icecream in between. The desert version of the double down!

    Is it strange that after watching that video I want a Double Down even more? But seriously, I can't take anything PETA does seriously, the same goes for Pam Anderson narrating it. I suppose I'm biased, however, given my location.

    The Double Down looks disgusting and is just another reason why Americans are fat.

    Looks like a delicious sin sandwich, but yes, this just compounds the comedy that is the American diet.

    That looks fantastic. I love bacon, chicken and cheese but never thought of combining them before! Might make one later.

    Doesn't look that bad...
    What about this Food Product for an artery-clogging experience?

    Actually, strangely enough, there are tons of fast food items way worse for you than the Double Down, especially if you get it grilled.

    Grilled Double Down - 460Cal 23G Fat
    Double Down 540Cal 32G Fat

    McDonalds Quaterpounder - 535 Cal & 29 G Fat
    Taco Bell Volcano Nachos 1000 Cal & 60 G Fat
    Subway 6" Tuna Salad Sub 530 Cal & 30 G Fat
    --------6" Spicy Italian 520 Cal & 28 G Fat
    Wendy's Fish Sandwich 500 Cal & 24 G Fat
    Burger King Whopper w/ Cheese 770 Cal & 48 G Fat

    So, really in the grand scheme of things it's no worse for you than any other normal fast food menu item. Whodathunkit?

    There should be a NSFH label on this thread. That is, Not Safe For Hearts.

    Given that obesity rates in the US have leveled off, I predict failure for this "sandwich".

    I am a fan of PETA, and a vegetarian for over 20 years.

    Thanks for sharing the video.

    We don't have to live this way.

    Maybe not, but there's nothing better on a plate than a ribeye/strip steak/porterhouse/sirloin/filet from a grass-fed, pasture-raised cow straight off the grill...mmmmm

    I ran 8 miles this morning and I have to say after looking at that picture, I am kind of hungry now...
