Are We Eating Beakless, Featherless Mutant Chickens?

16 Mar

killer-zombie-chicken-from-outer-space

There’s a rumor circulating the web about Kentucky Fried Chicken, or rather, KFC. There have been numerous articles about KFC stating that they do not serve ‘real’ chicken and that’s why they were forced by the government to change their name to one that doesn’t mention chicken. Now, first of all, I have as many doubts as the next guy about the government, but this is a little much. Do you really think the government is going to allow an establishment, no matter how much of an American tradition it may be, to feed us mutant chickens? Nah! Even I’m not that cynical. Nevertheless, the rumors are still out there. Here are some examples of what’s being passed around:

 

 

– KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts.

 

– First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name? Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the “FRIED” food issue. It’s not. The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called “chickens” are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing. I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

This is an example of some of the disturbing images associated with the claims that KFC is genetically engineering mutant chickens to save a buck.

I don’t believe that there are sub-chickens in some laboratory with multiple wings and thighs. However, I have no doubt that real chickens are given ‘special’ feed and pumped-up with hormones to make them larger and meatier. Whatever you believe, there’s no reason to fret. You enjoy Kentucky style fried chicken? Make it yourself! It isn’t difficult or time consuming and it may even be cost effective. Anyway, you won’t have to worry about an urban legend keeping you up at night.

It is so hard to accept when someone takes what doesn’t belong to them, especially after we work so hard to provide things for our families. It is even more heartbreaking when it is something that belongs to our children.
