I printed my coupon but have not went there yet I figured this was going to happen Over the last six months we have encountered several times our local KFC was out of the dark meat and a few times out of the sides we wanted. I really do not get how a chicken restaurant runs out of chicken We hope when we go this week to use the coupon they will have the food

They run out of chicken because they can only serve so many greedy slugs looking for a free meal! You people are acting like savages!

I went to a KFC in York yesterday and they were no longer taking the coupons. They're giving "rain checks" for people to use at a later date. They were not out of grilled chicken. They said the demand with the coupons was too high.

They've been using cat meat for the coupon special. Ran out of cats, but a new supply is on the way from China, where else. Stand by for a few more weeks.

I mean...I went to the one on Rt 30 un York yesterday also. What do they mean the demand was so high? Well DUH of course it would be that's why they should've stocked up.

And to OBSERVER....A meal is a meal, and if it's FREE it's even better. Im sure you & your trailer park family probably should've been there because you probably have nothing else to eat. Ingornant minded individuals!!

Did you even READ the article? There was NO riot! And you've spammed us yet again with another lame attempt to draw politics into this. Get a life! You're probably just jealous that you didn't get a coupon!

Last time I checked, 'facetious' meant humorous. Amos N Andy-style 'humor,' full of 'lookeehere' and fried chicken and watermelon references, stopped being funny about 50 years ago. The Daily Record should re-think its position on allowing this kind of hate speech in comments.

Wow, maybe the Republican Party should have passed out free KFC/Taco Bell vouchers before the last election. If they would have we'd have McCain as our president.

i actually had no issue what so ever...went to the KFC in dallastown...one night grabbed a free dinner...a couple days later split one with my kid...we each had a piece of chicken and a side and a drink...free is free...it's nice when a company decides to reward its customers...and the chicken tastes great...i think it has like 4 grams of fat...not bad for a fast food meal..and it is tasty taboot...i will definately be heading back for more even if i have to pay...its quick, healthier than most places, and tasty...nice combination...

Facetious mean having the habit of joking, said in fun, not to be taken seriously. Facetious has nothing to do with humorous. And 50 year ago, white trailer trash was the rage, but it still seems to be politically correct with some groups. Who died and designated you editor of TOPIX/YDR.
Keep up the good work Looky.

Lookee here now saphire! We have 3 grave stones in dis here world from mi famillee dying fo me and yo sorry butt to relies on wut weez Americans call FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to denote not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. Freedom of speech and freedom of expression are closely related to, yet distinct from, the concept of freedom of thought. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on "hate speech".
The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as "the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression".[1][2] Furthermore freedom of speech is recognized in European, inter-American and African regional human rights law.

Where is the "HATE SPEECH". Amos and Andy, water melon and fried chicken is not hate speech....it's funny! I bet you are an NOBAMA supporter. Anything that does not meet your sensitive needs must be hate. Actually they are still funny, will remain funny, and will always be funny! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Weezy go backs to watching dem reruns of da jeffersons and wait fo you check to arrive. Come on now Amos les go down to da creek and catch us some a dem catsfish and den we kin go see the Kingfish.

You mus be one a dem hippies

Your side has lost from the Civil War to the last election. It's funny to watch you and people like you act like three-year-olds. All of you are weak complainers anyway, so this kind of reaction is to be expected.
