"I'm so hungry... what's good to eat here at the Kentucky Fried Chicken, man? What do you have on the menu that's good?"
"Oh, umm... our mashed potatoes are awesome, I'll say that right now. And uh... oh, our corn is really sweet and crunchy. That's really great. And -- oh, we have these little popcorn chicken things that are kinda breaded, I like those. Oh! Duh -- if you get the mashed potatoes, you gotta get the gravy. The gravy is so tangy, it's really good."
"Okay, stop right there. Can you pile all of those items into a single bowl, just kinda make 'em into a wet mound of starch that I can eat with a spoon like I'm a death row prisoner on suicide watch? Could I just have that instead?"
"Um... yes, we can do that? We can also arrange those on a plate like you're an adult with dignity and self-respect. You don't have to actually eat your food out of a single bowl..."
"Fuck that, I'm done, I don't give a shit. Just pile all those things in a bowl. Is there a way that the bowl can play This Mortal Coil's It'll End In Tears album while I'm eating it at two in the morning in my darkened apartment, just kinda staring into the middle distance?"
