Ripping a page from the Sinéad O’Connor playbook, KFC has called upon publicity go-to the Pope to bless its new “Fish Snacker,” a compact Lent-friendly morsel that easily fits in your Psalm. Potential Papal approval of the golden-brown gut-bomb has surely rocked Long John Silver’s, the chain known to have a lock on drive-through seafood, today. In a press release KFC president, Gregg Dedrick, says the new sandwich is a “modern take on ‘loaves and fishes’ for today’s Lenten observers.”
The Vatican reportedly received the request and press release, but there’s been no word from Pope Benedict XVI. Clearly, something’s fishy.
