According to a new Oxfam report, workers at poultry plants in the U.S. are routinely denied bathroom breaks, under threat of punishment or firing, to the point where some wear diapers to work and urinate or defecate while on the line. Chickens may not be the only creatures being tortured in chicken meat factories, it turns out.
Kentucky Fried Chicken might as well be called Kentucky Fried Breading, because that is clearly the only reason to eat there. But the chicken, bland though it may be, is more important than it seems, because breading on a rat just tastes “nasty.” That’s according to a man who says he accidentally tried it.
The family of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy confirmed his death Monday morning. He was 93. Cathy's fast-food chicken empire, with 1,800 stores in 39 states and in D.C., topped $5 billion in sales in 2013. With an estimated wealth of $6.3 billion, Cathy was one of the richest men in the U.S. His son, Dan Cathy, currently serves as president of the company, which has drawn ire for its vocal opposition to gay rights.
Jeffrey Coley, 50, a former employee of Chick-fil-A, is accused of holding up a KFC drive-thru in Rock Hill, S.C. and speeding away with the cash register drawer containing $516.02. A day later and after a bit of a car chase, Coley was arrested by police in his Plymouth Neon, where the cash drawer was sitting on the seat with a little less than a gram of methamphetamine.
"Maakies" cartoonist Tony Millionaire, or his cartoon alter ego Drinky Crow, has delivered a vivid and much needed denunciation of the gristle-laced food-engineering debacle known as the "drumstick," one of the worst popular items of food, and one of the least appealing offerings from the generally delicious carcass of a chicken.
The latest terrible fake food scandal from China resulted in more than 900 arrests after criminal meat processors sold the chemical-soaked flesh of rats and foxes as "lamb meat." As more Chinese demand a daily supply of dead farm animals as food, crafty criminals are butchering and processing anything that moves.
If the average American had his way, every item that he encountered on a day-to-day basis—cars, household appliances, furniture, children—would be breaded, fried, and then cut into "chip" size for purposes of snacking convenience. Also, all of the aforementioned things would be made of chicken. The great folks in the fast food industry are doing everything in their power to make this "American Dream" come true.
