KFC's American Idol stunt

It was only a couple months ago that KFC pulled a publicity stunt by announcing they had asked the Pope to bless their new fish sandwich.

Now they're trying to create buzz again by offering American Idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar a free lifetime supply of (pretty disgusting) KFC Famous Bowls if he dons a bowl hairdo.

KFC President Gregg Dedrick wrote to Sanjaya: “If you don a bowl hairdo during one of your next nationally televised performances, KFC will grant you a free lifetime supply of KFC Famous Bowls. We’re sure America will be as ‘bowled-over’ by your take on this classic look as they are by our KFC Famous Bowls.”

Good grief!

Well, this was easy to see the truth in. I wish they would stop lying and just try to fix the problem.

I found an interesting website about restaurants I thought I could share - if you live in South East part of London you are gonna find this VERY useful. If you live in Manchester you can still find it A BIT useful. Its got over 1000 restaurants and takeaways infos complete with photos and menus and results can be compiled according to distance, price and cuisines... its easy to compare dishes and prices etc.
