Apparently, KFC is suing some Chinese companies for spreading the rumor that KFC had produced mutant chickens with six wings and eight arms. This may work for these Chinese companies as people MAY believe them, but I personally think they should have picked something a little more believable.
Do I think such a chicken is impossible? No, I don’t know how it could be done…but I’m sure it’s within the realms of possibility. I also don’t think that KFC wouldn’t use such a chicken if they could develop one. However, I sincerely doubt that KFC could have kept such a chicken under wraps.
After all, no one can keep anything a secret any more. The NSA can’t even keep their spying activities secret; what hope would KFC have? Someone would have smuggled out one of those chickens. There would be more than a couple companies starting rumors. It’s just too hard to hide that kind of thing, and KFC doesn’t have THOSE kind of resources.
Let’s also not forget that they’d likely seek patent or similar protection on such a creature if they built one. Talk about a competitive advantage.
Regardless, if it was safe I wouldn’t be averse to this. I kind of prefer breast meat, though. It’s healthier.
