Sometimes It Helps to Have A Little Experience....

KFC Chicken Shortage Explained

A farmer goes out one day and buys a brand new stud rooster to copulate with his chickens. The farmer puts the rooster straight in the pen so he can get down to business. The young rooster walks over to the old rooster and says
"OK, old fellow, time to retire."
The old rooster says, "You can't handle all these chickens....look at what it did to me!"
The young rooster replies, "Now, don't give me a hassle about this. Time for the old to step aside and the young to take over, so take a hike."
The old rooster says, "Aw, c'mon.....just let me have the two old hens over in the corner. I won't bother you,"
The young rooster says, "Scram! Beat it! You're washed up! I'm taking over!"
So, the old rooster thinks for a minute and then says to the young rooster, "I'll tell you what, young fellow, I'll have a race with you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins the race gets domain of the chicken coop. And if I'm so feeble, why not give me a little head start?
The young rooster says, "Sure, why not, you know I'll still beat you,"
They line up in back of the farmhouse, get a chicken to cluck "Go!" and the old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds later the young rooster takes off after him. They round the front of the farmhouse and the young rooster is only about 5 inches behind the old rooster and gaining fast.
The farmer, sitting on the porch, looks up, sees what's going on, grabs his shotgun and BOOM!, he blows the young rooster to KFC heaven.
He shakes his head gloomily and says, "Dang it!...That's the third gay rooster I bought this week!"

I thought my chicken at KFC tasted a little "funny" last night...

See, this is why they can't honor all those coupons. Their farmer had to shoot all those roosters because of the wiley one, and now their aren't enough chickens to keep up with the demand. Maybe Steph is right, and I should write an open letter to KFC about it.

And Helen, be sure to tell them Lucky was really disappointed he didn't have chicken tonight. I hope you're crafting this snark to KFC as we speak....
