CHOKE YOUR CHICKENApril 28, 2007
Big timers the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, the Beastie Boys, and Ravi Shanker are all aboard the PETA gravy boat in support for improving the lives of soon to be dead chickens at KFC. I dunno know, I mean a dead chicken is a dead chicken. Anyhow, PETA has been nibbling at KFC for a while, but it looks like they are turning up the heat in the fry pappy with new celebrity endorsements, movies, etc. One item that’s kinda cool is their “sign generator.” Just type in your message to one of the three provided templates, and the above is an example of what you get. Code is provided, should you want to use this gizmo on your blog or myspace space. Have a look around by choking the Colonel below. Oh, and some of the movies are a bit depressing, but that’s PETA.

I just got this off the wire from China Daily. As to the change in cooking oil noted here, and because of the International Date Line, I guess, the chickens could not be reached for comment. Thought you needed to know.
KFC to switch to oil with no trans fat
Updated: 2007-04-30 17:11 LOUISVILLE, Ky. – KFC’s fried chicken buckets soon will be stamped with a health message along with the famous likeness of its founder, Colonel Harland Sanders.
The banner proclaims that its chicken has zero grams of trans fat per serving.
The Louisville-based chain announced Monday that all 5,500 of its US restaurants have stopped frying chicken in artery-clogging trans fat. The company had said in October that it was switching to a new soybean oil believed to be less likely to cause heart disease.
“This idea is a positive one for consumers, and we do expect it’s going to really appeal to people and bring them into our stores,” said James O’Reilly, KFC’s chief marketing officer.
