Well, Part 1 of this rant certainly has generated its share of interest. Consensus seems to be that the KFC Bowls are (for the most part) disgusting, but that chicken covered in cheese is not (in itself) a crime.
So let's see how everyone feels about tis next one... pizza dipping. Seems lately that the fast food industry feels that pizza has lost some of its zazz, despie an array of exotic toppings ranging from the all meat (or three-meat), to the all veggie, to the bar-b-q, to the Hawaiian (ham & pineapple, yummy). Now, it seems, we need to dip our pizza into things. From Pizza Hut's "Dippin' Strips" to Papa John's dipping sauces.
My main objection is not that these sauces can't be a positive addition to the dining experience (the marinara is probably tasty enough, and the bar-b-q will at least take the tarnish off any pennies you happen to have handy), but rather that there's always that one step too far. That one sauce that doesn't even look like food. And even when you smell it, you can't really be certain what it is. In consistency and appearance, the 'mystery sauce' usually falls somewhere between paste and pus, and is enough to put me off the whole idea of dinner.
In fairness to the "pizza industry", I understand that this whole dipping thing is just an extension of the bread sticks in seasoned olive oil. I only wish that seasoned olive oil were an option, rather than the rhino-ejaculate that they actually try to pawn off on the pizza-dipping public.
In short... do it right or don't do it at all.
