KFC Holds "Best Chicken Cook" Contest in Santa Ana Today. Also, $2 Chicken Meal.
If you're into irony, the KFC Santa Ana is holding a chicken cook-off today, Wednesday, Sept. 7 to "determine OC's best chicken cook." No really. Here's more on the "contest" in their words:
"The Sept. 7 competition at a KFC in Santa Ana will determine the best cook in Orange County, who will compete in the Oct. 11 SoCal finals for a $500 cash prize and a chance to be labeled Southern California's best KFC Cook. The SoCal KFC Colonel will be onsite in OC to help judge the competition. Cooks (will be) competing against each other preparing three KFC staples: Original Recipe®, Kentucky Grilled Chicken®, and the Colonel's Extra Crispy™ Strips."
At the conclusion of the cookoff, "the SoCal KFC Colonel handing out medals and awards."
If I may translate: the contest is only open to KFC employees. The event today represents the Orange County Regional finals.
Here are the deets if you are inclined to attend:

Why do I already feel fat, bloated and thirsty?
