Hot oily hens, or chicken soup for the dumbass

Yes, one of the entries in David Letterman’s ‘Book of Top Ten Lists’ for new marketing names for KC has finally come true.

Rub a dub dub, three idiots in a sink
Rub a dub dub, three idiots in a sink

According to the New York Daily News:

“Four months after a Burger King employee lost his job for taking a bubble bath in a restaurant sink, three scantily clad teens were fired when they turned a basin at their northern California KFC into their personal hot tub.

“They landed in hot water with the chicken chain’s management when one of the bikini-clad dimwits made the same mistake as the Ohio Burger King employee – she posted photos of the dippy escapade on MySpace.

“The photos included captions such as “haha KFC showers!” and “haha we turned on the jets,” and were filed under a gallery called “KFC moments,” according to the Record Searchlight newspaper in Redding, Calif.

“The story broke before the unidentified girl could scrub public access to her profile. On her MySpace page, the girl listed herself as a 17-year-old worker at the Anderson KFC near Redding.

“”I’m a KFC worker, they are my best friends and my family,” she said on her site.”


Guess I’m doing Taco Bell for lunch today.


  1. I guess there’ll always be a successor to the infamous Phuc Yu.

  2. Unbelievable. Well, this puts my own experience into perspective:

    Perhaps I had a lucky escape.

  4. I’m switching to Popeye’s. Al Copeland’s dead anyway.

  5. Thanks for bringing up Popeye’s. Now I’m going to have a hankering all night for a three-piece all white with extra biscuit, a large dirty rice and a 32-oz fruit punch. Damn.

  6. I had a lovely dinner of mushroom and olive pasta marinara, fresh and sun-dried tomato salad with mixed greens in balsamic vinaigrette, and blanched asparagus with lemon dressing. How in God’s name can you people eat this fried crap?

  7. Can I come over for dinner, sledpress?

    Comment by azahar — December 19, 2008 @ 10:33 am

  8. Now that would be fun! You and me and the Editor, just to show him what real vittles is like. Specially since I’d bet confidently that vegetable broadside didn’t cost any more per person than the Pop-arse stuff.

  9. Now, now ladies, I can eat semi-healthy too. Just last night I had slow-cooked soup beans sans bacon, unpeeled diced potatoes fried in olive oil with a dash of sait, pepper and garlic, with fresh onion slices on the side.

    But Popeye’s still is, in the words of Adam Sandler, ‘F’IN AWESOME!’

  10. Sounds like you’re carbing up for a marathon. Shall we fire up the Sanitizer for you after?

    Comment by sledpress — December 20, 2008 @ 9:57 am

  11. Hey now, don’t forget to send an invite to your ol’ buddy Stiletto. You don’t gotta cook anything extra, I’ll be happy to drink all the wine.

    Comment by Stiletto — December 21, 2008 @ 12:22 am

  12. Sounds like he’s firing up something in his underwear!

    Comment by Stiletto — December 21, 2008 @ 12:23 am

  13. “I’ll be happy to drink all the wine.”

    I foresee a conflict of interests here…

    Comment by azahar — December 21, 2008 @ 11:43 am

  14. Oh, I’ll be too drunk to notice.

    Comment by Stiletto — December 21, 2008 @ 2:56 pm

  15. Editor will drink all the beer. And I will drink either, depending on the type. But what is your favorite liqueur for after? Az, maybe you can bring the Cuarente y Tres?

    Comment by sledpress — December 21, 2008 @ 6:21 pm

  16. Maybe a bottle of Triple Sec too?

    Comment by Frontier Former Editor — December 21, 2008 @ 7:18 pm

  17. Now people, let’s get exotic here. This is a convocation of unconventional personalities, after all. Triple Sec is for B-52’s, with all due respect to the premier modeler here.

    I nominate to the bar a bottle of Chartreuse (if we’re going to have a fantasy, make it a good one), Benedictine (straight, without the brandy), Glenfiddich liqueur (yes, it exists), Pama, and for the well stuffed among us a jug of Branca Menta.

    I’m thinking of garlic and chile grilled portabellas by the way, with maybe some braised kale with ginger and sesame. Big wodges of seeded brown bread to mop up the marinade from the mushrooms. Y’all with me?

    Comment by sledpress — December 21, 2008 @ 7:37 pm

  18. So far, so good.

    As for Triple Sec, I’m just in the mood for some orange goodness.

  19. You watch out or you’ll be paired for dinner with Anita Bryant.

    Comment by sledpress — December 21, 2008 @ 8:17 pm

  20. I said goodness, not fundamentalist Christian intolerance.

    Comment by Frontier Former Editor — December 21, 2008 @ 8:19 pm

  21. and while we’re talking about fundamentalist-Christian inTolerance, what about the SchPellling

    … modeLLing !!!


    No wonder George III struggled so hard to keep the Middle Colonies safe for MotherHood, Apple-Pie and Righteous Spelling

    and shouldn’t you & the erudite Young Ladies in this Place be doing their Bit on Aerchie’s SchPace to secure the much=coveted Hat for America at this Week’s BBC News Quiz

    Comment by G Eagle Esq — December 22, 2008 @ 5:13 am

  22. I’ll bring a few bottles of cava … not into liqueurs much, though I do like the occasional rusty nail, light on the drambuie with a twist of lemon. Otherwise a nice single malt ‘for after’.

    Speaking of cava, I make a lovely grilled salmon steak with chopped ham in a garlicky cava sauce.

    You know, I’ve never tried Cuarenta y Tres. I shall stop by my friend María Paz’s bar today and ask her for a swig.

    “I said goodness, not fundamentalist Christian intolerance.”

    Funny (well, not really) how they are so often confused for one another…

    Comment by azahar — December 22, 2008 @ 5:23 am

  23. Tis done and here is photo evidence…

    cuarenta y tres

    I didn’t realise it was so orangy. Reminds me of a dessert I once had, but can’t remember which one.

    Comment by azahar — December 22, 2008 @ 10:32 am

  24. Single malt rocks. 43 is really a dessert, and I always marvel that it whiffs like it’s going to knock you over and goes down like a whisper. But Drambuie really is better.

    M. Eagle, I tried that BBC quiz, but such a great deal of it was UK current events, and it’s been ten years since I was engaged to a West Londoner… I’m out of date (information-wise only, my sell-by is still good).

    Comment by sledpress — December 22, 2008 @ 12:49 pm

  25. I’m easy to please as long as the vintage is right. Wine is fine, I’ll leave the fancy hard stuff to my elders.

    Comment by Stiletto — December 24, 2008 @ 7:50 pm

  26. Mdm S=Press

    Peut=estre Vous mis=Comprehendez le purpose de la Quiz

    The Best get the much=coveted Dunce’s Hat because they’ve been spending their time far too well to keep up to date with the News

    Happy Xmas to Everyone
