Japan’s sad Kentucky Fried ‘Feast’ for Xmas spreads to the U.S.!

For many years*, gaijin/foreigners in Japan have greatly enjoyed laughing at the long lines form outside branches of Kentucky Fried Chicken every Christmas Eve and the pathetic lives of the Japanese who consider dragging a greasy bucket home as a proper Christmas feast for the family. The traditional Japanese custom of eating KFC on Christmas is so popular that stores take reservations months in advance (Wikipedia).

Now Japan’s Kentucky Fried Farce has been ruined by KFC’s “Festive Feast™” that’s being heavily promoted in the U.S.A.
