FRANKFORT, Ky. - Animals rights advocates are squawking at a measure that would make fried chicken Kentucky's official picnic food.

ADVERTISEMENT

State Rep. Charles Siler is sponsoring legislation to assign the designation to KFC's "finger lickin' good" chicken, first served by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1940.

The late colonel's fried chicken deserves the title because of the worldwide attention and economic benefit it has brought to the state, Siler said. KFC, a subsidiary of Louisville-based Yum Brands Inc., has 11,000 restaurants in more than 80 countries.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals bristles at the idea. The animal rights group claims that the chickens KFC serves are abused, even tortured.

"If the state legislature moves forward with this one, then they should change Kentucky's state bird from the cardinal to the debeaked, crippled, scalded, diseased, dead chicken," said Bruce Friedrich, PETA vice president.

PETA has been involved in a long-standing battle with KFC, and even began a push two years ago to have a bust of the bespectacled Colonel Sanders removed from the Kentucky Capitol. Sanders, with his white goatee and black string tie, became recognizable worldwide by marketing his fried chicken.

Who really gives a damn about what those fruitcakes think. I wish people in the U.S. would grow a set and tell them to go :censored: :censored: !

Kentucky has every right to be proud of Harland Sanders and KFC.
Corbin, Kentucky is the original home of KFC and the first KFC restaurant in the country.
I've eaten there myself and it is quite historical as well as darn good food.
I don't personally care how the chicken died as long as it wasn't from poison, old age or roadkill.
It's a chicken, and meant to be eaten.
