Good News: Yes, There is a Free Lunch (4 of ’em); Bad News: It’s PR for Oprah; Kentucky Halal Chicken
By Debbie Schlussel
I keep kosher, so I can’t partake in the KFC free lunch (KFC only has a kosher location in Israel). But that doesn’t mean you (my gentile readers and friends) can’t. And I love directing my readers to free stuff. SWAG is king, especially in this struggling economy.
Kentucky Fried Chicken, in a bid to make you think of the place as a more healthful “Kentucky Grilled Chicken” is giving out coupons for two pieces of grilled chicken, two sides, and a biscuit–COMPLETELY FREE. PRINT OUT THE COUPON HERE. But hurry. You can only print it out until 11:59 p.m. Central Time tonight. Print out four of them.
Coupon available for printing from 9am CDT 5/5/09 to 9:59pm CDT 5/6/09. Coupon is redeemable at participating KFC locations in the U.S. from 5/5/09 to 5/19/09, excluding 5/10/09. . . . You are limited to 4 online prints of coupon.
Sadly, KFC is doing this in conjunction with one of my least fave TV hucksters HRHSBotU [Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe] Oprah. Yes, I remain steadfast in my view that OprahSucks.com. But you don’t have to be an Oprah fan to partake. In fact, I encourage my Oprah-hating like-minded readers to take advantage. A free lunch (or dinner) is a free lunch. In this case, there are FOUR free lunches–KFC lets you print out four of the coupons. Yes, Oprah is for the birds. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a free bird on her and still despise her, like I do.
The only hitch is printing it out (they make you quickly download a “printer”–why do that when you have a printer? I think it’s designed to keep you from printing out more than four coupons).
Enjoy the chicken, and tell me how it was.
I know, I know–“Tastes Like Chicken.”
BTW, our European friend Kenneth Sikorski of Tundra Tabloids notes that KFC in Britain is pandering to Islam and has converted its stores there to a halal-only menu. I’ve noted, over a year ago, that the company already did the same on our shores in Dearbornistan, the reason I call it “Islamo-Tucky Fried Chicken.” And they do the same at locations in Windsor, Ontario, Canada–just over the border from Detroit.
That’s sad, since I’ve always been a fan of the story of “Col.” Harlan Sanders, who never really made it until his early 80s. I’ve written about him and about PETA’s repeated absurd attacks on KFC. Sanders was a great American, and I doubt he’d support this halal stuff.
Still, that shouldn’t stop you from a free lunch, right?
