NEW YORK — KFC is tossing out the chicken bones and the quaint image of founder Col. Harland Sanders as it gets ready to test a slightly more upmarket restaurant.

You see, most restaurants, you know, will be cooking at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten everywhere. Where can you go from there? Where? This restaurant goes to eleven.

I see they are getting rid of the bones. There's no real evidence of meat in there, so the new product must just be crunchy fried batter.

I hate the KFC commercial with the line "I ate the bones?!!" By the way, you can get excellent fried chicken that tastes as good as KFC at the Cub deli counter.

No Colonel Sanders? That's like Wendy's without Wendy!! It's the Colonel's 11 herbs and spices that made the chicken famous.

As the old adage goes "you can't put lipstick on a pig", in KFC's case a chicken. No matter how hard they try you just can't make junk food look gourmet.

This is not so new. I was introduced to the Colonel's Kentucky Fried Chicken back in the 1960s at Delaria's Restaurant in Southdale. It was a nice, sit-down restaurant with waiters and waitresses, not a fast-food place by any means, and the chicken was quite good -- a lot better than it is today. As with KFC's (not-so) new upmarket format, the prices were higher, comparatively. I suppose I can't blame the reporter for knowing so little about KFC's history and its early franchisees. Its current management probably knows even less.

If KFC would serve decent size drumsticks and thighs maybe people would go. They have gotton so small over the last few years there's no meat left, it's all greasy batter and tiny bones. The kfc here is so dirty and always running out of food, that should just never happen in restaurant biz.
