You have a bucket already, why get another container for soda? That restaurant management may not agree.

On the other hand, maybe he just want his fried chicken marinated with soft drink. That appears to be a clear drink. From KFC’s website, their clear drink is Sierra Mist. Just call it misty fried chicken. He is just making a customer suggestion, to the management!

Wait! That’s not actually a KFC, but some burger place??

That looks like a Burger King or maybe McDonald’s poster. However, both of those serve Coca Cola, not Pepsi. Supposedly, these restaurants serve Pepsi. None has a burger poster like that.

Maybe it’s the old defunct Gino’s – a fast food joint that combines KFC with a burger place.

In any case, this is a guy filling up his KFC bucket with soda, at another burger joint? That restaurant management may not quite see it as genius.

Although from the fuzzy letters on wall sign, this may not be in U.S. Maybe there, it’s customary to use KFC bucket for soda. Maybe there, it already offers “Misty Fried Chicken.” Maybe there, they don’t wear any fast food chain uniform, he is just a restaurant worker flushing out the soda machine. Nice try, but busted!

Who knew that picture offers so much information and intrigue?


KFC offering $10K ‘Internet Escape Pod’ ahead of Cyber Monday

KFC’s Internet Escape Pod, looks like a tent with Colonel Sanders spread on top (that’s actually a bit creepy), is designed to block all Internet signals from coming to or from your devices. It will save you from being bombarded by unwanted Cyber Monday emails, social media posts, so you can have an uninterrupted KFC meal.

You may well ask, is that the best way to promote KFC meal? And, you may be surprised by what other non-chicken merchandises KFC sells.

Behold the KFC romance novel! KFC released an 83-page romance novella titled “Tender Wings of Desired,” before Mother’s Day (2017).

How about fried-chicken scented sunscreen.   According to KFC

Get it?   Extra crispy hence the sunscreen – yeah, very tenuous connection, if any.

KFC is full service when it comes to delivering to you that KFC aroma. How about fried-chicken scented candle?

Make sure that aroma just emanates from you all over – fried-chicken scented bath bomb.

So that, you and those around you will feel like being in a KFC, no matter where you go, 24-hours a day.

KFC lives up to its “Finger lickin’ good” slogan with edible nail polish

The Finger Lickin’ Good nail polish comes in two signature KFC flavors.

  • Original Recipe – a light taupe with brown sparkles,
  • Hot & Spicy – a fire engine red with deep maroon sparkles.

It’s designed to keep customers suckin’ and lickin’ long after their meal is over.

All this is enough to prompt one of the article to comment, “when it will become even more apparent that the executives at KFC have lost all interest in selling us chicken anymore.”

We may disagree on the state of a person’s well-being if they need a 70-lb potbelly pig for comfort. But, the fact is emotional support animal (ESA) is a fact of life for some. And, we all have to put up with it or suffer through it.

Perhaps nowhere is ESA more of an issue than air travel. With your ticketed seat, the option of moving further away inside an aircraft cabin, is just not available. Everyone is stressed enough in a confined space. We don’t really want to deal with someone else’s ESA quacking duck.

Every airline has its own ESA policy. They are all similar. Passengers traveling with ESA need to provide ESA documentation.

  • An ESA travel letter, issued by medical doctor or mental health professional.
  • Stating the person has a mental or emotional disability, and is under professional care.
  • The person needs an ESA to accompanying air travel.
  • The number and type of ESA.

Individual airline may have additional requirement. American Airlines and United Airlines require a 48-hour advance showing of the ESA documentation. Others have rules governing where the ESA should be placed.

What about other passengers’ rights? Sorry. You don’t have much. Your inconvenience or even your allergy are not valid reason to deny ESA access.

One problem is that ESA is treated the same as service animals. Perhaps Congress or FAA should set stricter guidelines and distinguish ESA from service animal. Ultimately, there is probably no perfect solution. You just have to hope that ESA is providing comfort somewhere else. It certainly is not supporting your emotional well-being.

The headline says “Woman kicked off flight after emotional support pig became disruptive.” That’s right. It was a 70-lb pig that caused such a stir on a plane, the pig and owner were kicked off. Not much emotional support from that pig.

I think we can all understand service animals, such as seeing eye dog for a visually impaired person. Service animals go through extensive training and are trained to be very well behaved. But, emotional support animal is, well…, an entirely different animal.

Any animal can be an emotional support animal (ESA), not just your dogs and cats. Landlords and hotels cannot require ESA to have any training. Airlines cannot charge a cabin pet fee for ESA. There are stories of people taking advantage of ESA and fly their pets for free.

Get ready to ride that 14-hour flight with a pot bell pig or miniature horse sitting in the aisle next to you, or a quacking duck accompanying you on your cross country red-eye flight. What fun!

Is that in stored for all on our travels? What are the airlines’ policy on ESA. What can other passengers do about it? We’ll take a look in a future post.

A UK Cambridge University physical science professor is under fire, for advising his students that they will have to work hard and abstain from drinking to pass his course. Really? What was the issue with his advice?

Students are calling his email “extremely damaging.” Mental health campaigners at the university are calling the message “extremely damaging to the mental well-being of the students.” It goes against “the very premise of having a social life, or any sort of life, outside of study.”

It must be extremely damaging to study, in an educational institution where you pay a lot of money to go study! Perhaps we should just let the students choose their own grade. That should certainly help with easing the burden on their mental health.

This UK professor has also been called a “scaremonger” who scares students rather than “helping them to learn to live a balance lifestyle.” No, this accusation was not from students but from another educator. A vice chancellor of Buckingham University said “(f)rightening impressionable undergraduates into believing that work alone is all-important is irresponsible, unkind and wrong-headed.”

Has it really been that long since these educators were themselves in college? University social life is a given. You are in that environment, you are going to experience college life. It is not mutually exclusive with studying. The students will have the rest of their life to practice work-life balance. Hello, this guy is a physical science professor. He wasn’t hired to teach undergrads about balanced lifestyle – not within his expertise.

I wonder who is really wrong-headed here. Hey, vice chancellor of Buckingham University, the parents who are paying for the tuitions, would surely appreciated it if you would spend your time ensuring their students are learning, rather than drinking and having a social life.
