When we heard that KFC was defacing covering fire hydrants throughout Indianapolis with ads for its “fiery” wings, we immediately offered to help the city’s fire departments, which are struggling from economic woes, by applying to advertise our Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign on their fire trucks. We want citizens of Indianapolis to know that the only thing “fiery” about KFC is the scalding-hot water that millions of chickens are dropped into—often while they’re still conscious.

We’re still waiting to hear back from the city—but in other news, we’re told that for the first time ever, dogs throughout Indianapolis are terrified of fire hydrants.
