So I guess it's still ok for Papa John's Pizza to create an add showing a soccer match with a bunch of high strung Italian fans screaming and hollering and all of a sudden a hush comes over the stadium when the doorbell rings and there's the pizza.

The relationship between fried chicken and racism is stritctly a liberal-driven, poltically-correct cultural phenomenom unique to the US.

The rest of the world scratches its head and wonders, "WTF?".

NEW KFC DINNER ........

We all remember the “Hillary Meal”-— small breasts and big thighs..

Now, KFC has announced an addition to their chicken dinners.

It’s called the “Obama Cabinet Bucket”.-—

It consists of nothing but left wings and a**holes.

Some of the mods are still held captive to political correctness.
