“It was so cold that I saw chickens lined up for KFC’s deep fryer”

"It was so cold that I saw chickens lined up for KFC’s deep fryer” is a joke about extremely cold weather that has been printed on many images. “It was so cold in New York City today, three chickens walked into Kentucky Fried Chicken and surrendered,” American television host David Letterman said on the New York City-based Late Show with David Letterman program on January 6, 1999.

“It’s so cold chickens are going to the KFC and to use the cooker!” was posted on the newsgroup rec.music.classical.guitar on January 26, 2004. “It was so cold...roosters were rushing into Kentucky Fried Chicken and begging to use the pressure cooker!” was posted on the Athropolis blog on February 7, 2004.


Wikipedia: KFC

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, it is the world’s second-largest restaurant chain (as measured by sales) after McDonald’s, with almost 20,000 locations globally in 123 countries and territories as of December 2015. The chain is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, a restaurant company that also owns the Pizza Hut and Taco Bell chains.

* The mice down there at Dunkin’ Donuts in NYC… it was so cold, they packed up and they went down to the Dunkin’ Donuts in Miami. It was so cold, McDonald’s was charging extra to pour scalding hot coffee in your lap. It was so cold in NYC today, 3 pigeons walked into Kentucky Fried Chicken and surrendered.
