Popeye's ran out of chicken, everyone panic!!!!

Watch this gem and then we’ll discuss.



What’s the purpose of yelling at a recorded message? Seriously, it said they were closed and the woman proceeds to yell about how she’s trying to get some Popeye’s for her kids. Really, if you’re that concerned about your kids, you won’t be feeding them fast-food fried chicken.

One guy said, “No chicken, or are they just out of chicken?” Holy hell, where to start? What’s the difference between no chicken and out of chicken, exactly? Did he think that the chicken had become extinct, then realized that the Popeye’s was just out, not planet Earth?

One lady went to multiple Popeye’s locations looking for the chicken special. Is this the only fried chicken place on the planet? Are you really saving money when you drive past 5 other fried chicken options and waste gas just to get to Popeye’s, only to have them be out as well?

“They should have had a tractor-trailer out back with chicken on ice, you know…” Yeah, cause renting tractor-trailers full of chicken and ice is worth it for the $4.99 chicken special. Why didn’t they think of that?

“I’m more disappointed than angry,” another customer says. Why is he talking to the reporter like he’s his father?

A story on Popeye's running out of chicken is racist? I'm confused.

See, the problem is that they didn't plan enough like KFC did. KFC is GIVING AWAY chicken for an entire TWO WEEK period. Well, sort of. You have to go to Oprah.com/kfc to get the coupon link. The catch is that you can only get the coupon for a 24 hour period, and then you have two weeks to redeem it. A WAY better plan than the Popeye's one. This way you spread out the rush for a bit so they don't need the tractor trailer with chicken on ice.

If you can't trust fast food fried chicken joints, who can you trust?

Holy Crap! There's no end to the chicken madness! I saw a commercial on TV tonight with the CEO explaining the new rules for getting your free chicken. Strangely though, I live near a KFC and passed two others while doing errands today and I did not notice the "lines around the block" this article mentions.
