    KFC Responds to U.K. Chicken Shortage Scandal With a Timely ‘FCK, We’re Sorry’

    Mother London crafted the foul-mouthed, full-page ad

    By Erik Oster

    |7 hours ago

    In The Sun and Metro, KFC ran a full-page print ad crafted by agency of record Mother London.

    KFC went through a highly publicized, somewhat bizarre crisis in the U.K. this week: The fast food joint known for its fried chicken ran out of chicken. Now, KFC is apologizing with a creative stunt: rearranging its name to spell “FCK.”
    The shortage stemmed from “operational issues” with new delivery provider DHL, forcing most of its 900 locations to temporarily shut down (some reopening with limited menus and shorter hours). Disappointed fans of the chain were vocal on social media and even started trying to get police involved (police in both London and Manchester had to remind angry KFC fans that the “#KFCCrisis” isn’t a police matter).
    KFC even set up a website letting fans know where the closest open store was located. As of today, the BBC reported that around 700 of the KFC’s stores in the U.K. have reopened.

    My favorite responce “I’ve had to go to Burger King”

    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    They need a Popeyes.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    Around Detroit, the saying is that if you live around the corner from a Church's, you live in the ghetto.

    We have Chicken Shack, a local chain. Their chicken is "broasted", not fried. It's really good and their "shack potatoes" are even better.
