Finger-lickin’ good
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, March 08, 2008

PETA, as usual, is all up in arms over a Kentucky feel-good legislative measure to honor a home-grown business:
Animals rights advocates are squawking at a measure that would make fried chicken Kentucky's official picnic food.

State Rep. Charles Siler is sponsoring legislation to assign the designation to KFC's "finger lickin' good" chicken, first served by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1940.
Of course that won't do and PETA tells us:
"If the state legislature moves forward with this one, then they should change Kentucky's state bird from the cardinal to the debeaked, crippled, scalded, diseased, dead chicken," said Bruce Friedrich, PETA vice president.
Heh ... sounds yummy, huh? Think I'll go out and buy a bucket for lunch, just because. Thanks for reminding me, PETA.

Why does Kentucky need an official picnic food?

Do Kentucky legislators have nothing better to do?

This story is a joke from all angles, start to finish.


Although, fried chicken for lunch is a pretty good suggestion.

Cheers.

I wouldn’t say that PETA was "squawking"; this sounds more like "cluck-clucking"!

Do you think I could piss off PETA if I ate some cow tonight?

I think PETA should fight for the rights of stalks of wheat, brutally cut from their life of growing towards the heavens, mutiliated, and then eaten.

I just went and self-reported myself to PETA for animal cruelty (here’s their cruelty report page), cause I’m going to have to swing by the local KFC tomorrow.

That reminds me of a funny thing that happened in Logan, Utah a few years back. An animal-rights group (I don’t remember if it was PETA or another group) protested outside the local KFC. The next day the newspaper ran a story about it and the KFC manager reported record sales for that day. The protest only made people hungry!
