"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Fuck the Colonel, or at least their suppliers:
A US supplier for Kentucky Fried Chicken has fired 11 workers after a video showed the poultry being kicked, stamped on and slammed against walls.
Pilgrim's Pride vowed to root out all who were responsible for the abuse at its Moorfield plant in West Virginia.

It came after the animal welfare group Peta released a secretly taped video showing workers "stomping on, kicking and throwing live chickens about".

KFC said it had suspended the buying of chicken from Moorfield.
Well you know, some people might say that this video was leaked to Peta in the interest of proving, once and for all, that yes, that is chicken you're eating.

Could we please sic Taguba or Sy Hersh on these people?
