This prom season, KFC is encouraging boys to include a drumstick on their lady’s corsage before heading to the big dance – wait. wut? am I in a k-hole? is this real life? Yes, apparently has decided to start their own trend: CHICKEN CORSAGES! And BICUIT BOUTONNIERES! And TIARAS MADE OF POTATO WEDGES! OK, I made those last two up, but the corsages are really a thing.
You can actually order one for $20 (limit of 100). You get a lovely corsage for your date and a $5 gift card to go and buy the chicken yourself.
Says the florist who created it: “Chicken not included (duh.). Each corsage kit includes a $5 KFC gift check, so you can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress. Local corsages will have fresh baby’s breath and out-of-town corsages will have silk baby’s breath.”
