KFC Staff Will Miss The Woman Who Spent A Week In The Restaurant Mourning A Bad Breakup

Burying your head in a gallon of chocolate frozen custard while letting the tears fall into the bucket and mingle with the contents. Buying all the cheese at the store and using it as an edible blanket while you spend days in bed. Crying/running the other direction anytime you see a happy couple. All are normal reactions to a breakup. But hanging out at a KFC for an entire week to get rid of the lovesick blues? That’s something new. [More]

Remember a few months ago when we shared the news that KFC in the Philippines is offering fried chicken covered in Clover Chips, a popular tapioca-based snack?
