Crazy Conspiracy Theories
It is claimed by some people that Kentucky Fried chicken makes black men impotent. Believers say that all the food is laced with a drug that makes black men impotent. They say that the white supremacist group known as the KKK owns the restaurant chain and that the stores only employ white people.
Crazy conspiracy theory:
Tony Danza is an alien-robot hybrid created in a Guatemalan laboratory by Ethiopian techno-geneticists specializing in extraterrestrial DNA. Their plan is to use Tony Danza as an agent of political terrorism which will engender World War 3, bringing about the end of the earth as we know it.
But when I say this I'm a nut
That is so ridiculous.
The KFC nearest me is ONLY staffed by blaeks.
And everyone knows they call it KFC because they cannot use the word "Chicken" any longer. Everyone knows they don't use chicken, but genetically altered, 6 breast and 10 legged beasts. duh.
Hold me close young Tony Danza
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
