Before Eating at KFC in the UK, You Must Sign a Disclaimer!

Filed under: Humor,Retail — Edgar (aka MrConsumer) @ 5:34 am

Well, that is a bit of exaggeration, just the way KFC’s tongue-in-cheek advertising is promoting the re-introduction of its notoriously messy sandwich called the Dirty Louisiana burger.

It has three sauces that tend to ooze out when eating, so KFC in the UK is warning customers who order the “dirty” burger that they will be responsible for any splatter on their face or clothing.

*MOUSE PRINT:

KFC Dirty Disclaimer

The notice is designed to poke fun at all the privacy disclaimers that folks are receiving throughout Europe.

In addition to the “Dirty Disclaimer,” diners are also a given a bib that looks like Colonel Sanders’ white suit and black tie.

  2. Well that is a disclaimer I would sign and a sandwich I would try out. Too bad it is not over here in the USA.

  3. Funny story, but of the click bait variety. I guess there weren’t any consumer scams to report this week?

    Edgar replies: Richard, every so often it’s fun to feature a humorous story about fine print disclaimers too.

  4. I see nothing wrong here. KFC is appropriately alerting consumers about the deliciously crispy and savory taste of their burger.

    Edgar replies: Wayne… there IS nothing wrong here. Mouse Print* is about fine print, which most often contains a nasty surprise. This is merely an example of funny fine print.

  5. Wouldn’t be nice if all forthcoming features are like this only because there’s no longer anything deceptive worthwhile to report? Yes, I am from another planet and I love to dream. Sigh!

  6. There actually are quite a few examples of funny “Mouse Print”, some, like this one, are intentional; others I’m sure are not. It’s good to see examples of these now and then. Thanks for sharing.

    Edgar replies Bill, when you or anyone else here finds either a particularly nasty or funny bit of fine print, please submit it: edgar (at ) mouseprint.org

  7. thank you, some restaurants should have disclaimers !. one local restaurant here has a logo :warm beer and lousy food: does that mean todays society disgruntled customer could sue for receiving a cold beer and superb food as false advertising ?
