Sure... give the man a double down so he can be back in a coma after a massive heart attack.

The year is 3013, sir. You've been in a coma for over a century. The chickens now rule us. Theirs is a just but brutal rule. The only reason they kept you alive is because you have been deemed "Extra Crispy". I shall alert the sacred friars who operate the sacred fryers that you are now ready to be dipped in a batter of 27 secret herbs and spices (we've developed new herbs and spices) and will be prepared according to the Colonel's time honored methods.

Fine. Get yourself a three-peice and a biscuit, but not ground up and fried chicken-like substance and grey goo that is passed off to piglets as food.

I've been to 2 KFC's that made me question the existence of decency and humanity. One looked as though there was a food fight mixed with the hair clippings from a salon. And it wasn't trays on tables messyy. There was actually food all over the tables and floors, and I saw long, long black hairs all over the place, stuck in gravy and mashed potatoes and such.

The key is finding a good KFC. I'd say it's a 50/50 chance of finding one. I live near a good KFC. I don't know about the bowls or sandwiches. I just get a 12 piece bucket o' chicken, mashed potatoes, and cole slaw, and eat it over 2-3 days. It calms the monster within me for about 4-8 weeks.

Yeah, and we also know that the State of Kentucky sued Kentucky Fried Chicken for copyright infringement, which is why it is now called KFC. The state eventually lost the case and KFC had announced that they were reverting to the old name. For some reason, they never did. Cost too much, I guess.

Sigh. After reading TFA I thought I'd try a big crunch meal with gravy for lunch. I don't think I've ever had their gravy before.

This just in: KFC gravy sucks.
 
2012-06-29 12:57:17 PM  
After reading TFA, I also had a chicken craving for lunch. Unfortunately, we do not have a Bojangles here in my town. We have a KFC on what seems like every corner. Because my arteries are most likely already clogged with the crap I've eaten this week, I figured KFC would be a little too greasy. So I went a few exits up and opted for Popeyes. What a mistake. Asked for a 3pc meal with one of the pieces spicy. Wouldn't you know it, just as our McDonalds are around here (which I call McGrabBags), they screw up the order. Spicy piece? No. Requested pieces? No. The chicken also looked like it had been under a warmer overnight with a tiny feather protruding out of the wing piece. Needless to say, I will hold off my chicken urges until we get a Bojangles here. FML.

What? C'mon. That's just too far fetched.

The chicken overlords would obviously know that informing future food of its fate would release stress hormones that 1) could have an adverse affect on meat quality and juiciness and 2) could provoke a fight or flight response that could make the entire preparation/cooking process difficult and dangerous.

The command clucked down from the Big Coop would obviously indicate that frying subjects should be mislead into believing that the secret herbs and spices are actually a health remedy -- and they should know nothing of the ultimate design until the last possible moment (if ever).

CSB:

Some years ago my brother was very seriously ill, in the ICU under heavy sedation (the docs called it "drug induced coma," though that may be something different). Anyway, after seven days of this he rallied so well that they weaned him off the sedation.

Once he came around, there were two noteworthy things:

1. My brother believed that for some very long but indeterminate amount of time he had been strapped to the deck of a pirate ship at sea, and that nobody would give him anything to drink.

2. He kept insisting that I go get him a soda (pop, whatever). He got really angry at me when I told him it wasn't allowed. He even spelled it out for me. S-O-D-A!


His heath is very good now, but he remembers none of that (probably for the best).

Something interesting is that original recipe and extra tasty crispy use the exact same batter mix as each other, the only difference in the 2 is Original is cooked in a pressure deep fryer, and extra crispy is cooked in a regular open deep fryer.

You know how extra crispy tastes a lot like everyone else's chicken? If you fried someone else's chicken in a pressure fryer it would taste a lot like original recipe

Harland Sanders so named the company, since he began by running a gas station in Corbin, Kentucky and, in 1930, began serving food to customers. People liked his food and started coming just for it without buying gas. So he moved to a motel restaurant across the street. Here he perfected his "secret recipe" and cooking method for fried chicken. He was a smash hit and his restaurant was a favorite with travelers. When the interstate highways system was being planned and would bypass Corbin, he sold the restaurant and started selling franchises that would become Kentucky Fried Chicken. In 1964, when there were over 600 KFC outlets, Sanders sold his interest to investors but continued to be its iconic spokesman until he died at the age of 90. Sanders was born in Indiana.

FTFL: Obviously, they are unwilling to since they had been using it for nearly four decades(they started in the 1950s) and refused to pay such royalties as a matter of principle. After much negotiations, they were unable to budge the government stance and thus decided to change their name instead of paying. This coincides with the rebranding campaign as stated earlier and everything turned out well.

In Nov 2006, Kentucky fried chicken finally reached an undisclosed agreement with the state of Kentucky with regards to this issue and they are free to use their name back again.


That's some pretty shiatty due diligence there...
