KFC says 'FCK' in responsive print ad after restaurants kick the bucket

KFC took out full-page advertisements in United Kingdom newspapers on Friday to apologize for the fast-food chain's chicken shortage this week.

"We're sorry", the apology on the ad continues, "A chicken restaurant without any chicken". It's not ideal. Huge apologies to our customers, especially those who travelled out of their way to find we were closed.

So far, 700 of the 900 stores have been re-opened.

As of Thursday morning it was being reported that around two thirds of restaurants were open although many were still offering limited menus.

Up to a foot of snow fell in the upper elevations of Lake Tahoe during Thursday's storm, with several inches at lake level. Conditions in the Kern County mountains will be especially gusty with winds up to 40 miles per hour .

A Calgary restaurant is stepping up to help United Kingdom residents impacted by the current shortage of perfectly spiced, golden-fried chicken in their country - but there's a catch. "Thank you for bearing with us".

"England is nearly a full week into its "chicken drought", the result of KFC switching food distributors to save money, only to have that backfire tremendously when its new bargain-rate delivery partner, DHL, didn't, uh, deliver". When the issue first happened, KFC said it was due to "teething" problems since switching to new delivery partners.

It added the "hiccup" was due to delivery problems with DHL.

This week's KFC crisis has seen hundreds of United Kingdom stores closed and menus limited to a great extent. "For KFC's sake", one person wrote.
