If you’ve been living under a rock, or simply just don’t care enough to class this as news, you may have missed the epic food scandal that is causing havoc all across the United Kingdom.
Kentucky Fried Chicken has run out of… Fried chicken!!! I know, I’m as traumatised as you are, after a change in delivery contracts, drivers have been unable to deliver the copious amounts of chicken to KFC branches around the UK.
People are up in arms and you would think that it was the start of a nuclear war. Which, based on what’s going on with Trump, it could very well be. I mean, you can’t have Kentucky Fried Chicken without the chicken, can you?
Now, if I’m being completely honest, I don’t really care that much. So KFC is closed because they don’t have chicken, cool, I’ll head somewhere else. It’s not big deal really. Well, that’s what I would have thought. Buy some professional victims have been triggered by the news of their local fried chicken chain being closed.
It’s been discussed on ITV’s Good Morning Britain and has been the talking point in offices up and down England.
But if you’re craving the Colonel’s crispy chicken, This Morning has got you covered. Thanks to TV chef Phil Vickery, he shows us how we can make our own fried chicken that’s just as finger-lickin’ good!
British people are getting as vexed at this news as Eric Cartman was in that one episode of South Park where KFC was banned in Colorado.
But look, we’ve survived the first few days, or as our children’s children will remember it; ‘The Dark Days’. So let’s do what we Brit’s do best, “Keep Calm and Carry On”. Furthermore, it’s only chicken, don’t panic, there are a lot of local chicken shops who, in fact, will be happy to accommodate your carnivorous needs.
