give me doughnuts: Kibbler: eraser8: I don't think I'd ever had KFC until I went to college.  I had a friend there who used to love the stuff.  He loved it in all its greasy, salty horror.  I never figured out the attraction.

Maybe I'm immune to the  addictive chemical they put in the chicken that makes people crave it fortnightly.

KFC used to be a real treat back in the 60s.  It was genuine fried chicken back then, and genuine potatoes, genuine cole slaw, genuine biscuits.  Now it's all synthesized, mass-produced factory crap, and I can't figure out why anybody eats it.  It's cheap, I guess, and fast, and they don't even know what real food is like any more.

But you can take my word for it, there was a time when it was great stuff.

Gee, those foctory-synthsized fake bones are really convincing.

Scrawny, ill-tasting chickens raised in crowded cages in huge factory farms.  "Breading" that is like some kind of alien goo.  Yes, synthesized.  I can't even detect the flavor of chicken any more.  It's just "generic greasy salty fast-food flavor."

My earliest memories of a Kentucky Fried Chicken were from about 1965.  It was an old-fashioned chicken shack.  No place to sit down and eat.  You went in and ordered (or phoned it in ahead of time) and waited.  Then took it home.  It was not fast food.  The place had screen windows (hot as hell in their during the summer), and some standing room, and a counter where you could see them cooking.  They made each order as it came in.  They mashed their own potatoes.  They baked their own made-from-scratch biscuits.  They cooked their own fresh green beans, made their own cole slaw.  It was real.  I'm not saying it was haute cuisine.  It was an old-fashioned chicken shack and it tasted great.

The plasticized, synthesized, air-conditioned, factory food outlet with drivethrough of today does not even remotely resemble it.  KFC went off the edge when they moved toward "we need to be able to get an order to a customer within three minutes."  That means factory-processed, pre-cooked, warmed food that you just shove in a bag.  The other problem was, "We need to be able to compete with McDonald's on price." That meant lowering standards and moving toward factory-processed synthesized junk instead of real food.

OK I'm done ranting now.

sheep snorter: In other news: Its been 65 years since Israel started to wipe out Palestine.

They sure suck at it since it seem to take decades and the palestinian population only increases.
In other news, it's 65 years since the arabs failed (try #1) miserably in their attempt to slaughter the jews.

give me doughnuts: Fark you. How's that for an apology?

Sounds like the standard response for someone with your social skills...

but I do give you a golf clap for interning internet archetypes to their classic level of pigheaded arrogance (not ignorance mind you, as I can appreciate your insight into the image itself). My favorite part is that you seasoned your verbal assault with foaming mouth bits. I can only really appreciate an arrogant comment, when it has been subtly (or in your case) not so subtly flavored with the purveyors rage.

It is really sad that this has to happen at all. Food has to be smuggled?? It is almost like they are living the ghetto in Germany in 1934.
