KFC Isn't Racist--They've Got Buckets of Black Friends

Posted By on Thu, Jan 7, 2010 at 1:21 PM

Man, fast food chains are really scraping the bottom of the grease fryer to find a loyal audience these days. Remember how Hardee's sold us turds wrapped in roast beef and dipped in saltwater all by tossing a few faux French maids in our faces (ahem: none of my male co-workers seemed to mind one bit)? But not before they equated cinnamon dough balls with their own balls--so literal! Of course, what a wry wit must have led to Carl's Jr. wanting us to think handjob alongside milkshake--which last I checked, was only the, duh!, second reason I like a milkshake, the first being a straight-up facial. And, of course, what woman doesn't have tender memories of the hot beef injection BK served up with a creamy load of mayo? Consider this meat lover sizzled!

So, let's recap: Based on my informal poll, fast food chains aren't interested in catering to anyone who isn't white, male, stupid and now... racist. Clip above.

Of course, it was supposed to just be an Australian ad and not show up in the U.S., because the Australians supposedly get this "lighthearted reference to the West Indian cricket team," whatever that means. Except now folks have dug up this Korean KFC ad with the same conceit from two years ago. D'oh.
