Hey, at least it included chicken…

KFC’s jingle in the early 80’s (and perhaps since, I don’t know, I haven’t been paying attention) let everyone know just how they handled their namesake meals.

My family didn’t eat much fast food, which is definitely not a bad thing. Partially because I grew up in Tiny Town, but mostly because it’s much cheaper to make full meals at home.

The KFC was in a town about 10 minutes north of my parent’s place. We headed out and as the outgoing child that I was, I ordered for myself.

“What can we get for you.” “Chicken rice.” “What?” “Chicken rice.” “We don’t have that…” “What do you mean?” “We don’t have chicken rice.” “But the commercial… *sings* ‘We do chicken rice!'”

Turns out it’s right. They do chicken right. “We do chicken right!”

I don’t remember what I ended up having. Did not involve rice.

    Forgot to say, I liked the story, and you can hear the wrong words in an ad.
