This guilty plea is brought to you by KFC

Kfc "Defendant trades murder plea for KFC, pizza." That's the kind of free publicity that KFC probably doesn't want or need. But actually, Tremane Durham’s agreement to plead guilty to murder in Oregon so long as he gets to enjoy buckets of the Colonel’s finest in prison (along with apparently unbranded pizza, calzones and ice cream) could be a big plus for KFC, positioning the chain as a vital link (such wordplay!) in the criminal justice system. Super Chicken achieved that status about 40 years ago, but his crime-fighting exploits were cut short by a deep-fryer and a coating of extra-crispy bread crumbs. Point to ponder: Just how bad is prison food if KFC is considered an improvement?
