Some horrible facts about KFC!!!!

    I just recieved the following email,


    KFC has been a part of American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts. First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name?

    Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the "FRIED" food issue.

    IT'S NOT! !

    The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called "chickens" are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC.

    Because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing.

    I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

    If anyone believes that, I have the exclusive rights to sell the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It's going cheap. PM me for details. ;)

    I thought it stood for Kentucky Fried Children. I'm still waiting for them to put stillborn 'Zinger' babies on the menu.

    KFG and all other mass produced foods aren't good for you at all. Sadly the chicken is one of the most abused animals on earth.

    I think the animal rights protestors would have a field day if KFC were really treating their poultry as badly as that. It would be in every newspaper and news channel and there'd be huge public outcry. Which is why I believe this is a cheap propaganda attempt.

    I don't think this is true. It this was true, it should have been big on the news.

    Me too. KFC is delicious. Chickens are delicious. If they weren't meant to be eaten, they wouldn't taste like chicken.

    I don't really care what they make their chicken out of. As long as it tastes good, I'm there. ;)

    The reason I thought it was hearing from a few years back is because they cant use the word "Kentucky" no more.
