American irony?????

I think, it is an excuse to find a fresher tagline.

Covid finger lickin' virus.

"A pound of salt and 10 herbs and spices?"

"Chickens have three breasts!"


That would invoke a copyright claim from Monty Python, it's clearly a slightly modified version of: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6qglec

I think Monty Python might be the infringer.

Effective Ad Campaign
Pioneer Chicken had a great series of ads where they brought much attention to the fact that KFC divided a single chicken into nine pieces, including two side breasts, and one "center breast". The slogan/theme of the ad was the phrase, "Chickens don't have three breasts, do they?" This ad prompted KFC to end that practice in southern California, with an ad campaign of their own claiming that their (KFC's) breasts were now 50% bigger than before, which of course just brought them up to equal with where Pioneer had always been.

Well KFC are clearly wrong, since you can't divide 2 things into 9 equal pieces.

KFC had right wing, left wing, right thigh, left thigh, right drumstick, left drumstick, right breast, left breast -- and the KEEL!

It was their long lasting practice to attempt to divide one chicken minus neck, gizzards and feet into 9 hunks of two different sizes. Wings and drums the smaller and the other 5 the larger. They really got called on it by their competition.

Pioneer chicken is 10X better than KFC anyway, and while KFC eventually kicked them mostly out of the market, there still is one about a mile from work! Score.

I had to look that up. I wouldn't like that either, I hate the taste of all meat. I'm not a vegetarian for the usual reasons, I see a cow as a non-sentient being, but meat doesn't seem like food to me. It's already been used! I want first hand food, from the ground.

So no mammals, no reptiles.

How about cicadas or locusts?

Not if you live in a 2nd floor flat. Obviously.

How about on the ISS?

Given the lack of activity in The Seti is Slumbering Cafe perhaps some sacrifices could be made to the weather gods. All attempts to look at CPDN pages still resulting in time outs. (Or should that be, "times out?"

What do you suggest we sacrifice? Any suggestions I make are most likely completely politically incorrect and illegal.


Clearly something worked. Testing and main site back even if no work on main yet.

I'm not going to publicly admit what I sacrificed. Especially as it didn't belong to me.


I stuck with a bottle of mead as is my tradition.

You wasted mead‽ What the hell did you think you were doing‽

The gods capture the mead and use it to calm down the vestal virgins.

The sacrifice is drinking it and no longer having the enjoyment of anticipation.
