Next year, KFC will serve it up in liquid form
Ok, let's take this slowly...
Somehow the loathsome bag of grease (we are what we eat, right?) starring in this commercial managed to consume a box of fried chicken parts without taking a breath, or allowing a thought to enter his sawdust-mottled head, which might have caused him to notice that the junk he was consuming was BONELESS. He simply inhaled this life-shortening garbage until there was nothing left in the box but a few crumbs. I wonder if he bothered to taste it. At least one of his fellow lunchchoads did, because he comments on how good it is. But this guy just stored it away like a chipmunk getting ready for the winter.
And anyway, is it really a good idea to encourage the expedited consumption of "food" like this? At least if the KFC has bones, you have to take your time eating it. Which means your body has time to recognize that it's getting full, and can get that message to your brain that it's time to stop eating. Oh, but wait...why would KFC want you to stop eating? This is the "restaurant" that fills soda cups with fried batter and calls it "Popcorn Chicken," after all.
So maybe "take this slowly" was not the best way to start this blog post. KFC doesn't want you to take this slowly. KFC wants you to pack it away and come back for more, quickly. If they can find new ways to allow you to get more crap into your body faster, all the better for the bottom line. Sure, you also die faster- but they have no doubt you are passing your horrendous eating habits on to your unfortunate offspring. Please remind them that popcorn chicken can now be Super-Sized.
