retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Associated Press reports that KFC has begun a late summer promotion in which it has given away 3,000 bottles of sunscreen, and in fact has run out.

The corporate connection - KFC says that it smells like fried chicken as a way of promoting its Extra Crispy Chicken (which has been the subject of new commercials in which ultra-tanned actor George Hamilton plays Col. Sanders).

The story notes that "several Associated Press reporters who tested the sunscreen said the smell did not immediately bring to mind chicken, however."
KC's View:

Actually, I do know which is worse...
