ABC: LONDON — Earlier this month, most of the 900 KFC outlets in the U.K. and Ireland were forced to close due to a chicken shortage. Now the fast-food joint has a new dilemma: a gravy shortage!
The company apologized to customers, blaming “teething problems” with its new delivery partner, DHL, for the chicken shortage.
KFC apologized to customers, adding that nearly 300 stores were back open a few days after they had initially shut down. MORE
If this happened where I live, there would be riots in the streets.
You mean they ran out of Bisto? Holy Moly. My Mom used Bisto gravy mix all the time.
The Muslim are getting it all
Oh sure, blame DHL. We know the truth: The gravy supply was drastically depleted by Black History Month cafeteria specials.
shoulda used UPS … those ‘effin’ Teamsters will get it there … over your dead body! 😝
The English have always marched to the beat of a different drumstick.
Well, teach those pups how to make gravy from scratch, they do have grocery stores in the UK don’t they?
No big deal. On this side of the pond, however, we anticipate running out of french fries and burrito covers in about 500 years.
Gravy= water, flour and grease. How do you “run out” of these?
Next they’ll be blaming Brexit.
Gravy is pretty easy to make. I don’t get it.
The colonel will be a private if this continues.
Good gravy! First, a chicken shortage, now gravy! What’s next cold slaw and mashed potatoes?
Do Europeans produce anything for themselves besides warm beer and stinky cheese – loaded question. Where are the poultry farms in Europe. Why are chickens and other KFC food supplies being shipped there? No excuse. KFC should be able to maintain quality control overseas with local suppliers. Guess the Muslim hoards have added to the dysfunction.
I worked at KFC in high school, can’t even ride past one now without gagging.
