Song of the Day : Pink Floyd – Wot’s… Uh the Deal
First, let’s point out that they’re probably gonna need a bigger bucket; whatever size they plan to use will be too small. As many of you know, KFC exploded onto the fast-food scene in 1952, wooing hungry Americans with their bodacious blend of delicious herbs and spices. Shortly after, they busted our collective gut with their revolutionary “Double-Down Sandwich.” And now, KFC wants to to be crowned The Poultry King by usurping the Fried Chicken World Record from… wait for it… KFC.
How does that work? Well, the current title owner is a Middle Eastern KFC, owned by a different company. Back in 2008, MEKFC took the title with 1,278 pounds of deep-friend deliciousness.
Recently, Kentucky Fried Chicken celebrated the 70th anniversary of its “original recipe”. In doing so, the AMERICAN KFC (you know, the KFC that fights terrorists, plays baseball, and sings Foreigner at Karaoke bars) challenged the record at the Canoefest in Indiana last month. There, Colonels of all shapes and sizes donated their time to fill the town’s grease bucket. Their combined efforts yielded 1,645 pounds. Another bout for fried chicken glory is expected soon – one that weighs in over 2,000 pounds! Woah, that’s how much the PowerCube 600 weighs!
Will we be victorious? Only time will tell…
