Free KFC for your traitorous patronage

Want a free Doublicious sandwich from KFC?

Put on some other fast food chain's garb and rush over to an outpost, then, because KFC is offering free samples of the boneless chicken filet sandwich to the first ten people dressed in the full uniform of a competitor today.

And if you're worried about getting fired from your burger-flipping occupation, the chain is also offering Sandwich Amnesty -- they'll give you a job application for your hardship-inducing patronage.

The latest in absurd fast food stunts, we're sure this was hilarious in theory, pitched in a KFC boardroom, but frankly, it sounds like a lot of work for fried chicken and bacon that can't be more than a couple of bucks on the regular menu.
