KFC diner told 'you can't have bacon in your burger here - we're now halal'
Daily Mail ^ | 3/25/10 | Katherine Faulkner

Posted on 03/25/2010 1:59:51 PM PDT by Nachum

A diner was left fuming after a KFC restaurant took his favourite meal off the menu because it breached their new halal regulations.

Alan Phillips was told he would have to travel five miles to another branch if he wanted the Big Daddy, a chicken burger, topped with bacon, cheese and salad.

The branch, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is one of 86 KFC restaurants which is running trials of a scheme where they sell nothing other than halal meat.

The company has taken the burger off the menu because Islamic dietary law forbids Muslims to eat anything which has been prepared on the same premises as pork, which is itself strictly forbidden.

It’s ok though, you can have fried infidel belly as long
as it’s prepared in a halal manner, throat slit, bled out
etc.

Islam...The Faith of Hate and the Cult of Insanity

Lets see KFC put one of those IslamoFascist “halal” KFCs in the middle of the US south.

86 restaurants? They’re really overrun. Amazing that we’ve had Jews around us forever, but I don’t recall entire chains changing up for them. Any Saudi link to KFC? If so, maybe I’ll get my chicken elsewhere.

I don’t know about now, but years ago when I worked at KFC (in high school, so it’s been a LOOOOOONG time ago) we made excellent burgers. They were much better than the other fast food burgers.

Big Daddy? Maybe they were trying to save him from a heart attack.

Shame on KFC for putting up with this crap.
I recently ate at a halal Thai restaurant, and the food really sucked. I should have asked them for a Hebrew National hot dog.

No pork in that either. And I don’t think any pork is prepared on the same premises as the “dogs”. And that’s the only kind I’ll buy.

The mussies are taking over, folks. Hell, there’s one in the WH. What can we expect considering a lot of people voted for him knowing he is mussie.

This happens in my neighborhood. I start bringing in a pocket full of bacon bits. Who knows, my pocket might have a little hole in the corner.

I was told today that a major cause of the rise of diabetes in shanghai is the addiction to KFC.

Looks like there`s an excellent business opportunity in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire for a new fast food restaurant...

Would you like bacon on that sir?

So this KFC is a strictly BYOB (Bring your own Bacon) restaurant. If I lived in England I would do just that. I would prepare some bacon before going there, order the item that is served without bacon and when the server gave me my food I would take the bacon out of my little container and put it on the burger right in front of him/her.

Well, on some level I don’t mind this. After all, you wouldn’t go to a Jewish Deli for a pulled pork sandwich or a non-beef hot dog. What is bothersome is that a chain such as KFC is compromising its franchise to appease a religious minority that seeks to impose its ways on the rest of the world. The way to deal with that, I suppose, is for people who don’t like it to boycott KFC here in the states. That might change their tune.

I guess they'll have to bleep Onslow's regular line from Keeping Up Appearances: "I could kill for a bacon butty right now".

Research indicates it really is a great cure for a hangover, which of course will never be needed again once all alcohol is banned to satisfy Britan's "special" minority.

[Apologies to Roger Miller.]

England swings like it’s heads in a noose.

Muslims walk around in Burnoose.

Westminster Abbey, the Clock called Big Ben,

the snowy white beards of the hate filled Imans.

England was a great place to be.

Now immigrants get everything free.

From Westminster Abbey and the clock of Big Ben.

You can hear the cries of the muezzins.

Though it’s happening there, it’s not England involved here, it’s good ol’ “American” Kentucky Fried Chicken.
