For a Laugh or?

“There was a guy in prison named Jackson,” said Shadow as he ate, “worked in the prison library. He told me that they changed the name from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC because they didn’t serve real chicken anymore. It’s become this genetically modified mutant thing,k like a giant centipede with no head, just segment after segment of legs and breasts and wings. It’s fed through nutrient tubes. This guy said the government wouldn’t let them use the word chicken.”

Mr. Ibis raised his eyebrows. “You think that’s true?”

“Nope. Now, my old cellmate, Low Key, he said they changed the name because the word ‘fried’ had become a bad word. Maybe they wanted people to think that the chicken cooked itself.”

(from American Gods – Neil Gaiman)

    Hi Phil, doesn’t this “explain” how any idea expressed by anyone can be turned into a theory or/and conspiracy by anyone else?

    They want to turn us into unquestioning consumers who are willing to pay for their craps (GMO). The water is tainted so that we’ll spend our fortune in trying to grab the bottled water. We’re exposed to radiation all day long. Plus, we are bombarded by misinformation about the world via the mainstream media. Our body and minds are systematically destroyed.

      As far as I am concerned you are quite correct in your statement. My response would be that in this case each individual must choose her/his preferred method to “fight back.” We’re NOT all in this together nor is it a group thing. I have and will continue to make personal choices about this world and what it claims and I will try to allow the same to all and sundry. What else can one do?

      Yes George I’m back only with a lot less comments. Mostly reading at the moment… and keeping my customers as happy as I can – no problem with the “heavy” outdoor stuff, by the way… But if you start again with your “Paul” story I’ll be right in there!

      Hi Akila… I’m sort of here and not. My last stroke gibbled-up my right hand so can’t type properly. I’ve been debating deleting my WP account entirely… I dunno, pass me another beer…

    My 2-cents-worth: they changed it from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC because that damned Mitch McConnell is one of the senators from Kentucky and the last thing KFC needs is to be associated with that elected terroristic whore! But I’m not angry. I’m not angry. THE HELL I’M NOT! …. Sorry, I was just channeling John Wayne for a minute there 🤔 😜

        Well my friend, being 68-years-stubborn it is my considered belief that being late (except for bill-paying) doesn’t really matter; besides, your response allowed me to remember what I had forgotten.

        Hey! So you didn’t remember to forget… you just forgot to remember! When I still had a working brain I used to have that problem. I need to go see the wizard and get a new brain.

        How is it that being our age and not having a whole lot responsibilities anymore (no kids to raise, or job to go to) translates to us coasting thru our days? I spend a lot of time on my ‘puter but don’t check my blog but once in a blue moon — it’s been 2 weeks since you posted this latest comment and it took me this long to even see it! Anywho … now that I have managed to wander over here I am going to read your latest treatise 🤗
