Double Down

July 20, 1969, man walks on the moon.  November 19, 1969, man walks on the moon again.  Then for a long time nothing happened, until today, which marks the arrival of perhaps the greatest achievement in culinary history:  the Double Down.  I've been trying to come up with an appropriate nickname for this breadless sandwich - bacon and cheese held together by a pair pieces of fried chicken - but so far the best I have been able to come up with is the Double Coronary.  Surprisingly enough, it has comparable calories and fat to a Big Mac (540/32 compared to 540/29) but still less than a third of the calories of a large Quiznos tuna melt.  So feel free to smother the entire thing with gravy.  The Double Down is expected to claim it's first life no later than Thursday the 15th.  Should health concerns keep you away though, you can still get the vegan double down, which appears to be made of plastic, but no animals were harmed when it came off the assembly line.  Unless of course you consider the human animals that were irreparably scarred during consumption.
