Pink gets fried.

They didn’t talk a lot about why they did it, but we all know it’s because fried isn’t a very good word to have in your restaurant name these days. Why? Because fried food is very bad for you. A high fat diet, espeically one that includes a lot of fried food, contributes to heart disease, diabetes, and many other diseases — potentially even cancer.
That, of course, doesn’t seem to matter to KFC, which is now selling pink “Buckets for the Cure.” And, yet again, a major breast cancer organization is accepting money from a company whose product might be contributing to the very cancer they both say they are seeking to “end forever.” At the very least, they’re giving a blessing to trading heart disease for cancer, which is disingenuous.
By the way, Colonel Sanders died of leukemia. I’m not saying it was the fried food necessarily. Maybe it was the eleven herbs and spices. Anyway, something to think about.
I swear the next product we see will be pink cigarette boxes. You just wait.
