Everybody needs a little KFC. But maybe not Chicago.
The fast-food chain has sent off a letter to the nation’s mayors, offering to patch their potholes for free. The company will leave behind a stenciled brand on the patch informing people the road has been “Re-Freshed by KFC.”
“In honor of our “Fresh Tastes Best” campaign, we want to come and Re-”Fresh” your roads!” KFC president Roger Eaton says in the letter. “Every patched pothole comes with the Colonel’s very own stamp of approval.”
But Brian Steele, a spokesman for the Chicago Department of Transportation, which is charged with repairing the city’s potholes, said “We don’t allow any type of printing or advertising placed on a city street or sidewalk.”
Pothole repair at no cost to the taxpayer versus some paint that’ll be gone in a month.
Hmm, it’d only be a tough decsion for a complete moron.
I suspect that the city’s utility unions have a hand in this.
