KFC Still Doesn’t Frakkin’ Get It

All hail TR reader cgeye, who happily pointed out that Kentucky Fried Chicken — who I recently extolled for offering the incredible Battlestar Galactica Fuck Pack contest — has apparently now figured out that “frak” means “fuck.” And apparently, some execs feel this is not a suitable contest name for a family friendly brand like KFC. Their new solution?


Look. I don’t want to get anyone fired here, but “Can’t-Say-That-Word-on-Television?” It’s still fuck. Not frak. This is why people can say “frak” on Battlestar Galactica on television every 12 seconds or so, while people only say “fuck” on HBO.

So you’re now offering the “Fuck Sweepstakes.” I thought you’d want to know.
