Mashed Potatoes!

Under any other circumstances, I would unequivocally state that the most disgusting food on the face of the earth would be Kentucky Fried Chicken’s faux bowl of mashed potatoes and the questionable gelatinous brown shit that sits on top of it , and passes for what we call gravy.  But today, the circumstances have changed…

As you all know, I am following the path of my nephew Devyn, who was shot in the head, a victim of a senseless crime that has not yielded one person anything other than grief.  Devyn was shot behind the ear and the bullet traveled in a downward trajectory resulting in the loss of multiple teeth and requiring that his jaws be wired shut.  In the few weeks since this tragedy happened, my nephew has not complained about anything except the one thing that all teenagers complain about, food, and how hungry they are!

Today, Devyn went to the doctor’s office and took a test that they call a “Barium Swallow.”  This test entails testing the patient with a solution containing Barium sulfate.  This solution is ingested by the patient and then tracked by x-rays to track its progress through the esophagus and the stomach.  To make a long story short, Devyn, just got a free pass to put a hurting on a whole lot of restaurants and I intend to take that journey with him… Soft foods only boy!

So, today, after getting the clearance from his doctors, Devyn decided to get some mashed potatoes from K-Fried and I an not taking issue with his culinary choices.  Eat all the mashed potatoes from Kentucky Fried Chicken you want.  I’m not sure that they have any nutritional value, but hopefully, they’ll help you to gain back some of the weight you’ve lost.  Bigger, after all, is a part of your motto…

Bigger – Better – Stronger!
