No Joke: KFC Offers a Fried Chicken Corsage for Prom

Categories: Really?!?!?

What's next? A burger boutineer?
Yes. We checked the date. We're way past April 1st and this not an April Fool's Joke. This is real. KFC is actually promoting corsages made of its fried chicken drumsticks to tie around your prom date's wrist--because what a carnation can do, a piece of Original Recipe can do better.

They even made a weird little commercial for it where a dwebby guy surprises his date with one, and she's more than delighted.

Think you can pull it off? You can buy yours from the official KFC site (http://www.kfc.com/corsage/), which will redirect you to the website of a real florist in Kentucky. For $20 (plus shipping), you'll be sent a corsage made of primarily baby's breath. Though the corsage doesn't come with chicken, it includes a $5 gift certificate redeemable for some at your local KFC, or maybe a corn on the cob if your date's vegetarian.

Here's the description from the florist's site to prove that I'm not making any of this up and also that the KFC marketing folks know how to get viral attention.

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.

NOTE: Chicken not included (duh.). Each corsage kit includes a $5 KFC gift check, so you can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress. Local corsages will have fresh baby's breath and out-of-town corsages will have silk baby's breath.

Is this a way of telling your prom date they're "finger-lickin' good"?

Yeah because they're finally admitting it's not real food!

I prefer extra tasty crispy myself. Wouldn't pin it to my lapel, though.

Well they won't ship the chicken, they're just giving you a $5 coupon.
