Behold the power of a free leg, thigh, two sides and a biscuit. Forget social injustice. You want to organize a sit-in? Try denying folks their right to free Kentucky fried…erm, um…I mean grilled chicken.

You see, yesterday Oprah offered coupons to all of her viewers that entitled them to one two piece grilled chicken meal. The offer is good from now until May 19th, 2009. First of all, the coupon server is way overloaded and it’s damn near impossible to get the thing to download. And even if you managed that, as many did, not every franchise operator is down with Oprah’s offer.

So leave it to the denizens of New York City to take their protest to the next level. According to eyewitnesses, folks staged a sit-in after being denied free grilled meat with sides. WTF?!? This aint a ’50s lunch counter folks.

“I went over to our nearest KFC a few minutes ago…and chaos ensued. Despite the very visible grilled chicken behind the register, the manager told everyone with coupons to leave and that the promotion was over for the day. The people there are currently holding a sit-in and refusing to leave until they get their free chicken .. .or the cops are called. Racial epithets were being spewed, people who actually wanted to pay for chicken were facing a potential beatdown, and the manager ran from the screaming horde. Oprah, what have ye wrought?”

Hah! No chicken for YOU! You may attempt to get your coupon here….but don’t hold your breath.

    Idiot obese Americans queue in line to eat more unhealthy, fattening food because some stupid rich bitch on tv gets conned by KFC to give their new range of food publicity.

    You Americans are almost as dumb as us Brits.

  2. Oprah is creepy says:

    She’s a marketing con always using drama to sell products. She’s one of the most influential drama queens sure, but not influential in matters of real importance. It’s all about getting you to watch TV, be brainwashed by commercials so you have to then put them in your local shopping cart and she gets rich, rich, rich, and more rich, leaving you with a feeling that by watching her show and reading her book recommendations you are changing the world and learning everything you need to know about the world..

    Anyone who says she’s “generous” is an idiot. Even Jesus spoke about such generosity saying that the poor man who gave a few pennies gave more than the rich man who gave millions. Every time I see her shallow fat blob of babbling nonsense, I wonder how is it that the world can be so stupid?

    Her “healthy” promotion which added even more pork to her fat bank account, is a laugh when you look at all her hype about losing weight years ago, she’s fat fat fat again, she boasted about he weight loss, her books, her personal chef, on and on and now promoting healthy eating by telling her drones to grab her coupon and be healthy by going to a fast food restaurant to eat chicken that’s still covered in fat? Just because it’s grilled doesn’t mean that they don’t dump the chicken in grease prior to grilling it, yea, that’s what they do.

    It’s healthier to eat one of those Texas steaks she boycotted than eat anything at a fast food restaurant. .

    # 9 Dallas said, “While I think fried chicken is rather disgusting, a worse option is Long John Silvers! A mutant shrimp encased in a pound of batter. Oh good.”

    Thanks for the heads up. Haven’t been to one in 30 years and started seeing commercials recently.

  4. Rich says:

    Forget it! There’s not enough time in the world to finish one of Oprah’s legs, never mind a thigh and a biscuit, even if a person were inclined to. Or did she mean chicken?

  5. Joe L. says:

    I actually got some chicken..It cost me nothing and it actually was pretty good..

  6. gmknobl says:

    I think a more recent photo of her will show she’s failed in her attempt to stay away from KFC’s fried deliciousness.

  7. Gary, the dangerous infidel says:

    Don’t worry if you didn’t get a coupon. KFC ran out of the normal chicken pieces, and now has to use slightly less preferred parts to fulfill coupon orders. It takes more than eleven herbs and spices to turn claws and beaks into a tasty meal 😉

  8. rick cain says:

    KFC is terrible. I bought a chicken sandwich and got a piece of shoe leather on a bun. The manager tried to convince me that dried out chicken fillet is what they sell.

    Why waste your time on minimum wage chicken?

  9. Glidedon says:

    This KFC give away is a perfect example of what will happen with universal heath care.

    The only way to control costs is to ration treatment.

    Everything you ever saw being given away says “limited quantities or limited time or both.

  10. Nomad says:

    a “grilled” chicken option from KFC sounds like a good idea… it would be even better if they didn’t use meat from biologically engineered chicken-beasts

    Something for nothing + Black people =

  12. Seems like Oprah is getting desparate for things to promote on her show…
