I write this post with a heavy heart, especially remembering that KFC has endorsed LEP before as a bastion of compelling blogging. However, a recent advertisement was too much to deal with, a blow against those of us who appreciate home cooking. No matter how often we burn our grilled cheese sandwiches to a crisp.
So KFC’s ad is the $10 challenge, claiming that we can’t do what KFC does for that price: provide a meal of 7 pieces of fried chicken, 4 biscuits, and a large side dish. You can view it here.
It’s a terribad commercial: the challengees didn’t seem to realize you don’t need a 5 lb bag of flour to coat seven pieces of chicken, for example. I was actually going to take up the challenge myself, but someone’s already done it with $2 to spare.
On some Sundays, I like to cook a meal of fried chicken, scalloped potatoes, and mixed vegetables. Might cross the $10 mark, but boy is it an upgrade from fast food!
