Oprah Winfrey's website ran a promotion with KFC, offering coupons for 24 hours. The coupons were worth two pieces of grilled chicken, two individual side items and a biscuit.
Except several KFCs were reportedly unable to honor the coupons. Some locations said they had run out of chicken and others, for one reason or another, flat-out refused to take the coupons altogether.
Word has reached this blogger of "rioting" (whatever that means: I've seen riots of various degrees in my time) in at least two KFCs, and one restaurant where angry patrons staged a "sit-in" and demanded their chicken.
Parse all of this as you will...
(Hey, I've been wanting to use that Oprah-zilla graphic for a loooong time. Can you blame a guy for jumping on the occasion? :-)
