EAT IT: IT'S GOOD FOR YOU I just saw a KFC ad which made the pitch that 2 KFC chicken breasts had less fat than a Burger King Whopper. Which is doubtless true, but since an Original Whopper has 43 grams of fat, it's a bit like saying you should shoot yourself with an AK-47, since it's got much less firepower than a howitzer.

I like fatty food as much as the next guy. I'd have to: I'm fat. But marketing fried chicken as healthy is more than a little disingenuous.
