Here’s Some 17th Century Still-Life Art with KFC’s “Zinger Double Down King” Photoshopped Into It

Last week, KFC unveiled to the world its newest cholesterol-ravaging behemoth: The Zinger Double Down King. It’s a beef patty, bacon, and a few unidentified sauces — slapped between two slabs of fried chicken. Why? Nobody knows, but probably because someone high up at KFC hates all people and wants everyone to die and be unhappy. But hey, that’s just guessing. Anyway, we see no better way to offer tribute to ZDDK, the mythical demon that exists solely as an existential counterweight to the institution of veganism, than to photoshop this deep fried monstrosity into some still-life art from the Dutch Golden Age.
