What do you do when KFC runs out of corn holding sticks?

You improvise.

In case you can't tell, yes, that's two forks stuck in the ends of that cob o' corn.

I can't take credit for the idea, though. My husband is the genius behind this one.

I guess toothpicks would've worked as well, but since our KFC only very rarely has chicken (I'm not kidding!) I don't think they'd stock something as useful at a chicken place as toothpicks.

Now, go an patent this idea somebody, and make lots of money.

I'll only take the customary 15%.

genius, i tells you. sheer genius.

our KFC does have chicken regularly, but does not buy the individual salt & pepper packets. so if you want salt and/or pepper, you have to share the salt and pepper shakers. oy.

Seriously, I can't tell you how many times that I've gone down there and ordered something chicken-related, and they haven't had any. It's actually a joke in our town that KFC doesn't stock chicken.

We do, however, have individual salt and pepper shakers. I know, because Anna Marie was sitting at our table while Jason waited (a few feet away) for our food and I ran to the restroom. When I came back, our shakers were on the floor. She'd been trying to "clean the table" with them. I can only assume that meant some sort of sliding them across the table occurred.

Only, I didn't really think the table needed cleaning in the first place.
