As a long-time reader of The Onion (America’s premiere satirical/joke newspaper), I could barely contain my excitement when I woke up this morning and read their front page story, titled “KFC No Longer Permitted To Use Word ‘Eat’ In Advertisements”.

Just to give you a taste of the full—and hilarious—article:


WASHINGTON—Issuing a condemnation of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s recent Boneless Variety Bucket commercials, the Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday fined the fast food giant $600,000 and ordered it to discontinue all broadcasts containing “false and misleading suggestions” that its heated chicken products are intended for consumption.

KFC advertisers are reportedly still in negotiations with authorities over whether the word “consumables”—a term that can encompass any product that must be replaced periodically, such as brake pads or swimming pool chlorine—is an allowable substitution for “food.”

Haha, oh, KFC, you just got owned. Of course, this isn’t the first time (see here, and here, and here). Seriously, just give up already.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
