The "other" Chicken joint Roll Eyes

The scene outside a crowded KFC just moments ago, where a manager had barred entry to the establishment, leaving what appears to be a dejected Wally Shawn stuck outside muttering, "Inconceivable."[UPDATE BELOW] Yesterday Oprah Winfrey thought she'd be nice and arrange for free KFC grilled chicken for everybody. Big mistake. The demand for free fowl has been so overwhelming that many people are having a dickens of a time getting their chickens because the website can't handle all the coupon downloads. This morning Grub Street compiled some of the more "heart wrenching" comments from thwarted KFC consumers on Oprah's site, such as "I'M MELTING CAN'T GET THE COUPONS PLEASE IS THERE ANOTHER WAY OF GETTING THEM ???? HUNGRY FOR THE CHIICKEN" and "Nice gesture since I am unemployed and a free dinner would have been nice. I could not download the coupon."

And now this harrowing report from the scene of a KFC on 42nd Street between Madison and Park has landed in our inbox:

I went over to our nearest KFC a few minutes ago...and chaos ensued. Despite the very visible grilled chicken behind the register, the manager told everyone with coupons to leave and that the promotion was over for the day. The people there are currently holding a sit-in and refusing to leave until they get their free chicken...or the cops are called. Racial epithets were being spewed, people who actually wanted to pay for chicken were facing a potential beatdown, and the manager ran from the screaming horde. Oprah, what have ye wrought?
More than a dozen calls placed to the KFC in question have been met with an ominous busy signal. We can only assume a riot squad is currently cracking skulls to save that last defenseless grilled chicken from the freeloading mob. Developing...

UPDATE: The photo seen here was just sent to us from our source, who returned to the KFC in question but was unable to get inside to assess the situation. We're told that "unfortunately the manager is now standing in the entrance and all of the patrons are inside since it's post-lunch rush." We can only assume it's a bloodbath in there. Still developing...

Second story:

Oprah Grilled Chicken: "You Get a Drumstick! You Get a Drumstick!"



Oprah's been Twittering so much, she's lost her damn mind. She's not giving out new cars or her book club pick this time.

She's working for the Colonel.

For two days only, KFC is handing out free Oprah-backed grilled chicken coupons. It's the company's new recipe and part of its new image. ...

You see, KFC hired some million-dollar PR firm that figured replacing the word "fried" with "grilled" would make the chain's genetically engineered birds sound healthier and the company would sell more chicken. Its new slogan: "un-think what you thought about KFC."

Yeah, right. I'll do that right after I un-think what I thought about Dominos Pizza's YouTube special. I don't know what's worse, Oprah's Grilled Chicken or Obama Chicken Fingers.

Next thing you know, Jared is going to leave Subway for a new finger-lickin' endorsement contract.

Free chicken scares me. Here's why. Did you hear about what happened when Popeye's Chicken and Biscuits gave out free chicken last month? It got ugly when they ran out. Watch the video.

Anyway, before you go storming your local KFC, read the rules and print a coupon, which includes two free sides and a biscuit. It's a recession, money's tight and I'll stop hatin'.

This story can't be real...........Jesus.....I do have a craving for some of that grill chicken now though......I think I'll go buy some, but shit will I feel guilty.......... Frown
I passed by my local KFC last night ... and the line was OUT THE DOOR ... with cars backed up into the street for the drive-thru!! Eek

I had no idea why ... and had already cooked my own dinner .... but, there isn't a craving in this world big enough to have made me subject myself to going through that line to eat there last night!! No way in hell!
Considering that Popeyes and Church's chicken tastes way way better, go figure. Free food must taste better then crap you actually paid for normally.
Hey, I don't think I would wait in line for KFC unless I was truly down on the luck! I don't eat at Popeyes or Church's. I only eat homemade or Frenchy's Chicken (and Frenchy's is homemade)! That's it, That's ALL!

Negrospiritual, the cake is JUST like the one big mama used to make. You would love Frenchy's! And it stays on busy. They are open from 10 AM thru 4 AM. I mean truly they have to be the best store bought fried chicken I've ever had.

I have one right around the corner from me, one that they built in the Fiesta lot on OST and Kirby, off Main. Good stuff.
A friend of mine told me about this. she said the line was out the door when the neighborhood Negroes heard about free chicken. I had to go see for myself. what if they had included free watermelons with the chicken? Can you imagine the mass chaos and rioting? HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

**same here...i'll be at home in June.....reminds me of back in the day when me and the fellas would eat a whole damn box while parked and take one with us..thank goodness for high fiber oatmeal...hahaha
My friends and I predicted this, when I got multiple texts and e-mails about the free chicken offer I wondered... "What the heck was Oprah thinking? This is gonna be a hot mess!"... Especially in this economy.

I will try it since it's 'grilled' one day.

I'm a huge fan of Zaxby's chicken, though I'm not sure if they make the grilled version.
