Just Because I Can't Eat KFC Doesn't Mean I Can't Think About It

Can anyone tell me why KFC (the artist formerly known as Kentucky Fried Chicken) is using Lynrd Skynrd's Sweet Home ALABAMA in its ads?

Seriously. Is there a good reason for this complete disregard of geography? Or even a not-so-good reason?

I'm sorry, my pretties. I get cranky when I'm hungry, and, for rizzle, I would gladly kill for a potato wedge right now.

Incidentally, my Step-Mom is a distant relative of the Colonel's.

In the Comments section, tell me what you are craving, food or otherwise. The person who gets me to stop thinking about honey barbecue wings wins!

    we have this little pizza place down the road from the office and as this is the fist day back at the salt mines, the thought of bacon and avo pizza is very tempting.
    Unfortunatly I have to shrugg of the Christmas kilos

    Dude. To people like me, the south is the south is the south....

    I'm pretty sure them Duke boys came from Georgia but I ain't entirely sure they didn't come from Alabama.

    All I know of Alabama, Mist, is the Slammers.

    Mmm, bacon and avacados, Nos. Yummy. I think you just cost me 100 more crunches.

    What do you mean "people like you" Matty? Northerners?

    I guaran-damn-tee you any Kentuckian would square off with you about the discrepancies between their home state and Alabama. Not good or bad, just different, yo. I don't know of any bourbon that comes out of Alabammy.

    Some might even consider Kentucky to be Northern, given its complicated stance in the Civil War.

    Effing busy, today, kids. They want to do, like, real work and stuff.

    I have a craving to not be like my mother. Why am I so afraid of becoming my mother? ~ G

    I'm craving sleep. Lots and lots of sleep. I might just crawl into bed and succumb to the urge. (It's a little after 3:30 on a Tuesday.)

    I just took a three-hour nap. I am SO happy.

    No idea about the song.

    I want a big hard cock in my mouth (don't say you didn't ask!!!)

    I just ate the piece of cranberry apple crunch pie my Mom sent home with me. Totally worth the wait. Totally wish I had a whole pie in the fridge.

    I was born in western Kentucky and I actually saw the Colonel in person in the Louisville airport, twice. He looked very angry both times, plus I'm vegetarian and adverse to grease, so not so interested in his chicken. I will go for the otherwise in a heartbeat however. Can't believe FCAF was the only one who brought it up, so to speak.

    Aw, Glynnie Love, I don't know your Mama, but I know you're a beautiful person.

    Yay, K! Now I'm craving a three-hour nap. You must have needed it.

    Speaking of needing it--not sure what I need more ladies--the burger or the cock.

    WG, you might be able to bring about world peace with a pie like that.

    Hiya Spell, I think that was the clincher. No one wants an angry Colonel, and I've got an angry beaver. Ha!

    I am sad. As a lifelong Kentuckian, I am baffled why they would choose a song about Alabama! There are plenty of songs about Kentucky! Granted, they're all on banjos and sung by nostalgic bluegrass singers. But they do exist!

    Hy Biscuits, Lexington is one of my Top 3 favorite cities in the world. I don't understand it either.
