KFC Gets Its Chicken Choked

The FTC has called KFC's bluff and is responding to complaints that the chicken chain's latest batch of ads, which basically attempt to pass the food off as healthy, are deceptive. The ads claimed KFC fried chicken has less fat and fewer calories than Burger King's Whopper explaining to Americans, as if a bunch of unintelligent idiots, that fried chicken could be part of a healthy lifestyle. Smartly, KFC has pulled the ads claiming they did so "for brand protection reasons." What they really meant to say was, "Yes, these ads make us look really retarded and the Americn public stupid so we are pulling them."
