There's nothing secret about KFC's chicken.

1. Add seasoning.
2. Deep-dry chicken in oil.


Here in Australia, it was said they changed the name to reduce the focus of the chicken being deep-fried.
I have always thought the name change was a dietary/sales consideration. :scratch:

Serious question:
So you are saying weed is legal where you are,
With a prescription?
It is in many places these days.
Just asking to make sure we are on the same page.

Isn't Burger King named something else even though they fought for the name.

They didn't have to change their name. They should be proud of where they're from. They will always be The Dixie Chicks to me. Oh, wait.....I can't say Dixie anymore, that's politically incorrect. :roll:

I still don't think that saying Dixie is any different from saying Cockney.
