Kan’t Fucking Cook (KFC nickname)

KFC is a fast food restaurant chain specializing in chicken. The letters “KFC” originally stood for “Kentucky Fried Chicken,” but there have been many slang backronyms (back acronyms). The KFC nickname of “Kan’t Friggin’ Cook” has been cited in print since at least 2001 and “Kan’t F@#king Cook” from 2002.

Similar KFC nicknames include “Kan’t Find the Chicken” and “Kan’t Fry Chicken.”

Wikipedia: KFC
KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) is a fast food restaurant chain which specializes in fried chicken and is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, United States (US). It is the world’s second largest restaurant chain overall (as measured by sales) after McDonald’s, with over 18,000 outlets in 120 countries and territories as of December 2012. The company is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, a restaurant company that also owns the Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurant chains.

KFC was founded by Harland Sanders, a colorful figure who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression. Sanders identified the potential of the restaurant franchising concept, and the first “Kentucky Fried Chicken” franchise opened in Utah in 1952. KFC popularized chicken in the fast food industry, diversifying the market by challenging the established dominance of the hamburger.
