Say it ain’t so. Oprah calls it quits. She’s ending her show in 2011, she will make the announcement on her show tomorrow (Friday). Twitter is all atwitter over the news and has had over 8,000 tweets an hour since the announcement. I’ll admit it, I don’t like Oprah and never liked her – the only episode I ever watched in it’s entirety was the one where she had Prince on when he released Emancipation, but I admire the heck of what she’s accomplished. To come from nothing to where she is today is astonishing. Maybe her meeting earlier this week with the babbling idiot Sarah Palin finally did her in.
I used to love Kentucky Friend Chicken but the quality of the chicken has gone completely in the crapper in the last few years. Sometimes you’ll get a round that is slap your mother good, but 6 out of ten times it’s completely unedible. When I heard about the free chicken deal, I was ready to give it a try. But the entire thing was totally ill conceived from the beginning. The first problem was it required the installation of software just to print the coupons, this was done I’m sure to include some sort of DRM so people don’t print up 1,000s of passes. The problem was KFC’s coupon scanner only works with color printers even though a large majority of people use black and white, then of course they also didn’t plan on having a lot of folks show up because they ran out of Chicken. So this entire marketing campaign has been a giant failure. But is that really the case? I mean look at all the buzz (bad buzz, sure) they have gotten from this. And I’m ashamed to say it, but I’m even more curious now to try their stupid grilled chicken.
