Date:  13b February 2016. Fried Chicken.


A couple days ago while I was neck deep in chicken (canning it) an amusing email arrived. It made me laugh out loud. Of course anyone who thinks it is a Good Idea to buy and preserve sixty pounds of chicken leg quarters in two days quite possibly is a bit warped.

On the other hand I learned a few things. The Chicken Leg Quarters (canning times and quantities) vignette provides quantities and times it took to process the chicken. Instructions on how I do it are found in the Canning 10 Pounds of Chicken article.

And if you need a bit of humor, well the following tickled my fancy. Enjoy.

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."

She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed.

My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.

I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA.

He said they love animals very much.

I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.

I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.

I told her it was chicken.

She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.

I told her, "Colonel Sanders."

Guess where I am now...

Now, whenever I see chicken at the grocery store I think of KFC, Colonel Sanders, and this story.

Tomorrow, exciting news...

Do you call the fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken or KFC?
What chicken place is your favorite?

The Archive holds a running list with synopsis of published articles, and links to same.

Aphorism Alert:  Regarding Colonel Harlan Sanders: In retrospect, maybe Colonel Sanders wasn't really all that interested in cooking. Maybe everything, the secret blend of herbs and spices, the down-home persona, the hundreds of franchises, was a cover for the fact that he had a deep, abiding, and pathological hatred of hens.
