Re: In the UK KFC outlets run out of chicken.

I blame Brexit. I want to change my mind. We weren’t told we were voting for KFC to be out of chicken and they didn’t warn us by writing a billboard on the side of a big red bus. We voted for bendy bananas, blue passports, bright incandescent lightbulbs, powerful vacuum cleaners and to deport every ...
