On Oprah's show this past Tuesday, KFC offered America a free grilled chicken meal: 2 pieces of chicken, 2 side items, and a biscuit. America responded. Chicken-lines formed. People staged sit-ins. A company spokeswoman went on record to deny that there had been riots. Yesterday, KFC finally announced they were suspending the promotion and offering rain checks


The wife and I headed over to the local KFC yesterday to get our FREE grilled chicken, but unfortunately KFC has suspended this promotion, which was to go on through the 19th of May. What KFC wants you do now is to go KFC and turn your coupon in, and fill out a form and THEN they will MAIL you a "rain check" coupon. WTF???. Seems to me, if they ran out of grilled chicken, KFC could have offered a 2 piece fried chicken dinner or if they couldn't do that, at least give you a "rain check" then and there in exchange for the coupon. But NO, they rather you fill out some damn form. Btw, I didn't fill out the form, I just left the store (besides how was someone suppose to fill out these forms as there were no pens or pencils provided?). Who every at KFC came up with this marketing campaign needs to be "canned". What could have a been a good campaign to introduce a new product at KFC, as turned out to be somewhat of a "marketing disaster" and as given KFC a "black eye". The next time I want some chicken I'll just go buy it at POPEYE'S

I used to love Popeyes, Bojangles, Church's and yes KFC fried chicken...now all that damn grease really gets to me, so I was looking forward to trying this new grilled KFC...

But if Oprah doesn't want me to, I guess........

I find it humorous that the guy who is in the commercials regarding this chicken rain check business for Kentucy Fried Chicken has such a heavy British accent.

Hmm good point.


I guess they don't consider a guy w/ a chicken bucket on his head good product "branding" or whatever Trump calls it on Apprentice.

I remember going to a carnival in the late 60s as a little kid, and asking one of the carnys who was working a scam game stand [after I couldnt knock those lead sand filled bottles over] I asked him If he had anything for free?. he said, "sure kid! the air you breathe is free!".

I guess it may have been his story behind him wearing the FUNERAL Bucket also. Colonel Sanders unrightfully slaughtered millions of chickens for no good reason and his purpose in life is to pretty much hunt down and slay Colonel Sanders himself for the chicken genocide.

Now he wears a solid white bucket.

I remember an old cartoon claiming the Colonel;s special herbs were more suitable for a Dead concert than cooking. This is nothing compared to the controversy when Popeyes opened in teh Times Square area years ago. Seems that when the sun was setting Popeye's skin tone darkened. Lot of pissed off people concerning that one

Soylent Green and genetically engineered "beakless" chicken.

That sounds about right...
