In this corner the new KFC Double Down - 2 wedges of chicken breast sandwiching between them 2 slabs of bacon, 2 hunks of cheese and the Colonel's "special sauce". In the other corner, wearing the heart monitor, YOU. I'm predicting a TKO in the first. Sorry, You. Winner and still standing the 960 calorie champion - KFC Double Down.
WOW! What's next I ask you?
Why should the Colonel have all the fun? Let's get some other fast food entities involved and create an amalgam sandwich - freakishly-fattening Frankenstein-like artery-clogger likes of which the world have never seen before.
Double everything on the original sandwich then load on a couple Krispy Kreme donuts, Stone Cold Creamery ice cream, Taco John's hot cheese sauce, whipped cream, mayo, a stick of butter,IHOP maple syrup, etc.
Don't wimp out now fast food... screw the apple slices and show us where the beef's really at.
Why is it ALWAYS an extra from the movie "Deliverance" that wins the HUGE MEGA Lottery???
Meet the nation's latest multi-millionaire Chris Shaw (29) that's years old and not the number of teeth he has left. The tattooed father of three who was raised by his grandparents in rural southern Missouri (STUNNER) came forward Thursday as the winner of the 10th-largest Powerball jackpot ever. Shaw said he had just $28.96 in his bank account and recently bought a 1998 Ford Ranger from a friend who agreed to let him pay off the $1,000 price $100 at a time. Now, he said, he no longer has to worry about how he'll pay his friend — or his .
"We didn't come from money. For us it's just going to be a huge relief to know I'm going to be able to pay my electric bill, my gas bill," Shaw told the Associated Press. "It's like a weight lifted. I had bills at home I didn't know how they were going to be paid."Maybe the tooth fairy?
Shaw said he bought the $5 ticket Wednesday at the Break Time convenience store where he works. Shaw said he needed a few days to decide whether he will keep his minimum-wage job at the store where he has worked for just three weeks.REALLY?
He also plans to seek advice "from people who know about money" about whether to take the jackpot in 30 payments over 29 years or the lump-sum amount of $124,875,122.

Undoubtedly you've heard or have been hit up by someone to jump into the "work pool" that the Powerball jackpot is at $252 Million. Not a bad chunk of change.

Below is a schedule of what you could expect financially from winning the PB jackpot tonight. Question....?? Has anybody ever taken the Annuity Option?

Another case of life imitating Seinfeld. Biologists who examined a gray whale that died after getting stranded on a West Seattle beach say it had a large amount of garbage in its stomach — ranging from a pair of sweat pants to a golf ball.
Today is April 20th, or "4-20," as it's known and celebrated by pot smokers. A few years ago, one hardcore 4-20 observer made his way to Contestants Row on The Price Is Right and bid $420 on every item.
Some facts about 4-20, courtesy of About.com:
- It's not the number of a bill in Congress to legalize marijuana.
- It's not the number of chemical compounds in marijuana.
- It began with a small group of stoners at a high school in California in the '70s.

A British man has been banned from driving for three years after police pulled him over while driving a toy Barbie car while drunk.
Paul Hutton, 40, said he regrets the decision to use the toy - which can reach a top speed of 6.4 km/h - to drive to a friend's house after he had been drinking, Britain's Daily Mail newspaper reported.
The six-foot tall father of four admitted he had to be a contortionist to get into the toy and said he felt like a "complete twit."
Hutton told the newspaper he was rebuilding the toy car with his son, who was taking a car mechanics course. On April 4, he decided to take it for a spin to show a friend who lives less than half a kilometer away. Police pulled him over around 9 p.m.
The newspaper reported Essex Police initially gave Hutton a warning, but when Hutton ignored them and slowly pulled away from the officers, they arrested him.

You know it... I Know it... when you saw the "Shake Weight" the first time you thought of the ol' H.J. Which brings us to the brilliance that Saturday Night Live occasionally displays. The writers at SNL are at their best when they tap into something very universal but understated and bring it to light with just the right amount of satire. Behold the parody of the "Shake Weight" from this weekend's SNL. Bravo!
