KFC Ran Out of Chicken

A few weeks ago, Oprah Winfrey announced that KFC was giving away a new menu item. All you had to do was go online, type in a special URL, and print out your coupon for a free 2-piece chicken meal (including sides).

Yesterday was the last day to get the free vittles, so I did a google map search for the local KFC and found one about a mile and a half down the road.

Guess what?

KFC is giving rain checks for the deal. They'll "throw in" a Pepsi, too, free of charge.

Two Things:
  1. KFC cooks chicken! How can they run out? Why aren't they closed, then? After all, if they have no chicken, what are they selling in there?
  2. Makes you think twice about eating the stuff in the first place. If they really do stay open because they really do have chicken, what was so different about this chicken? Is it really chicken or is it squirrel? How would I know? Maybe it's the remains of dead cats from the animal shelter?
Scary stuff.
