The rats are cleaner than most of their regular customers anyway.

Seems as if KFC has called its lawyers to remove the video from the web. Searched youtube.com and just got a red line message saying temporarily stopped. The Truth hurts. Those stinking rats will pay with spray for disrespecting the Colonel's image.

Of course I meant to type "No-ONE cooks rats like the Colonel..."

Also, don't forget the side order of Ratatouille!!

Let this be a warning to all of you with regards to all fast food. If you think one is healthier than another, you're crazy. Not only are rats in the restaurants, the are in the processing places where the "meat" is boxed up.

You are much better off learning how to cook for yourself

The fried is good, but I'd rather have something a bit healthier, like their skinless ratisserie style :D

Where is the store located? It seems that the moron who wrote the story is also keeping the location a secret in addition to the parent company!

This place was inspected in Dec 06 and they found evidence of rats than but let the place stay open. Now because people saw over a dozen rats running around this morning they closed it. Something is really wrong here.

Rats are everywhere in the city. They come out at every establishment when "no one" is looking. Just because someone was able to grab a photo does not mean that Taco Bell is any worse off then other food chains/stores.
