KFC scandal!

Nathaniel Christopher 7 Comments

I had lunch at KFC yesterday. It was either that or McDonald’s. Since McDonald’s was down a flight of stairs and I was too lazy to use the elevator I just settled for KFC.

Here in Canada KFC is famous for “Toonie Tuesday” where you get a drum stick, thigh and a side of fries for a Toonie, which is a two dollar coin. Apparently the people at KFC think a Toonie is worth $2.99 plus tax!

KFC at Brentwood Town Centre in Burnaby.

I don’t think they should call it “Toonie Tuesday” if the meal is not $2. Why not call it “Two-ninety-nine Tuesday”? It’s just another annoying example of companies nickle and diming us. Perhaps they could use the extra 99 cents from each meal to buy a better sign. That one looks ghetto.

The meal itself came to $3.14 and it was nasty.

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.


  1. Why don’t you go into the restaurant, get some free napkins, ext the restaurant, enter the alley behind the restaurant, scoop up some of the semi-solid deep drier grease with the napkin and then eat that combination?

    It’s probably just as nutritious.

    Your diet horrifies me. Garbage in garbage out I occasionally say.

  2. The meal looks a bit wilted. Perhaps you should ask for better chicken next time.

    I keep forgetting about toonie tuesday, but frankly I can’t be bothered anymore.
