KFC Peddling Drumstick Corsages Because High School Dances Arenít Weird Enough Already

As if it’s not hard enough to be a teenager dressed to the nines in a formal outfit that probably cost too much and won’t change your life in the way you’ve always dreamed of, in a room filled with other teenagers awkwardly swaying/pawing at each other, why not strap fried chicken to your arm and just call it a night? To wit: KFC is peddling customizable chicken drumstick corsages for those discerning promgoers looking to go that extra weird mile.

If you’re sniffing the distinct scent of publicity stunt, we’re with you: There are only 100 available, and you’ll have to bring a coupon in to get your own chicken when the time is right.

Looking for a corsage that will make your date’s eyes light up and her mouth water?

This KFC drumstick corsage is the Secret Recipe to making sure this year’s dance will be one you both remember.

Don’t delay. Order today! Only a limited edition of 100 chicken corsages are available.

Just like the last piece of chicken in the bucket, when they’re gone, they’re gone.

The corsage kits come with a $5 KFC gift check that said date can present at his or her local eatery and choose which kind of chicken will satisfy your date’s appetite. It’ll rest on a town of fresh baby’s breath, while ” out-of-town corsages will have silk baby’s breath.”

If you happen to attend a prom that doesn’t come with dinner included in the price of the ticket, this is actually a pretty economical choice. You can gnosh while you wait for your mother to take the 19,003rd photo of you and some guy whose tuxedo was way too big and whose name you won’t remember 14 years later anyway so whatever, just hurry up.

So, a drumstick on a wrist corsage, I’m thinking a breast on a standard corsage.

No way to explain away a greasy handprint in the wrong place.

They are marketing to the guys. To be honest, there are a lot of boys who would happily buy one to have something to enjoy during the dance.
