# 207. Running out of Fried Chicken

Black people are a very fascinating subject matter and are easily agitated when a staple food is removed from their diet. As this video portrays so succinctly, running out of fried chicken is hazardous to the black palate. From Rochester, New York, the popular fast food chain Popeyes, has run out of fried chicken and subsequently, chaos ensues.

The newscast included in this post does a wonderful job of delineating the complexities of black life without fried chicken. Black people fear running out of fried chicken, and in the words of one gentlemen who is quite upset at the prospect of a fried chicken-less night, "I'll never come back here."

Fried chicken is a vital portion of the black diet and as this video shows, black people don't like running out of fried chicken.

A lot of times these types of specials are run at a very low profit margin or even a loss. They do this to help build their customer base for future sales at full price. This apperently is not a good tactic to use on the black market because of the 'entitlement' issues that blacks have. I doubt that they lost customers even though that guy said he wasn't coming back. Like he's gonna start going to Subway or something...

There's something about the clientelle. I just can't put my finger on it. Both the hosts got a kic out of it. That's the main thing.

People complaining about stuff on sale being out are stupid assholes. End of story.

Idiots complained when KFC ran out of FREE CHICKEN.
