Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Perhaps it was to avoid passing a KFC shop.

Chicken is off the menu at most KFC outlets and as that's about all they sell, they've shut up shop.

The contract for distributing the chicken to the stores has recently been awarded to a new logistics company who haven't quite got the hang of it yet.

Perhaps the delivery company chickened out of the deal.

“We’ve brought a new delivery partner on board, but they’ve had a couple of teething problems"

I think they've fowled up big time!

Delivering fresh chicken portions to 900 outlets cannot be the easiest of jobs to take on, even for a company as experienced as DHL By all accounts, KFC knew they made a mistake in awarding this contract but it was too late to stop it.

"Tower Hamlets police have put out a tweet asking residents of the London borough not to contact them about the KFC crisis."

Words fail me.

Words fail me too, what on earth makes the police describe a gluttony shortage as a 'crisis'...?

Takeaway closed, dial 999.

I note that KFC customers are now phoning 999 to complain about the ongoing lack of chicken from this company.

These people are obviously brain dead, and having never stepped inside one of these places, I assume that their customers’ lack of brain cells is the result of eating what I presume is the usual bland, tasteless pap produced by other American High Street outlets such as McDonalds.

Actually it's not that bad at all.

Many years ago they had advertising that suggested that what hadn't been sold one day would not be sold the next. Armed with this information in Brighton in the 60s, after we had been kicked out of the pubs, we used to turn up at closing time and buy one portion of chicken and then get given a tray full of the stuff that hadn't sold which fed at least half a dozen of us!

I have tried KFC a few times in recent years and, in my opinion, it still ain't half bad :-)
