KFC drops Finger Lickin' Good slogan as 'doesn't quite fit' in age of Covid-19

Fast food chain says tagline is unsuitable in the light of the hygiene measures to tackle pandemic

See: https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/aug/24/kfc-drops-finger-lickin-good-slogan-due-to-covid-10

The fast food chain has acknowledged it will need to move on, at least temporarily, from the tagline it has used on and off for more than six decades, releasing new images of advertising posters and packaging with the words blurred and pixellated.

The move comes about five months after it pulled ads featuring the catchphrase amid complaints that the featured montage of people licking their own fingers and those of their companions ran counter to official advice to stem the spread of the virus. According to the Drum, more than 150 people complained to the Advertising Standards Authority in March.


But is it still OK to lick the skillet?

Seems a bit of a farce since ya' just about have to pick the chicken up with your fingers anyway.

1. Whose fingers do they think we're licking?

2. Granny's fingers, of course!

It was a huge treat when I was a kid in TN to clean up mom's and grandma's cake batter and pie filling pans and especially the one with what we called "calf slobber".

My little fingers did a masterful job!
