Bringing a live chicken into a KFC joint? Why, that’s like:
- Carrying a mud crab into No Signboard Seafood restaurant
- Ushering an alligator into leather goods store Kaiyo Reptile Products
- Leading a cow into Marina Bay Sands’ CUT by Wolfgang Puck
- Accompanying a friend who invited you as a guest to a cannibal cookout
But the moral ethics of bringing an animal to a place occupied by its fallen (and deliciously deep-fried) brethren wasn’t the issue for a KFC outlet at Punggol’s Waterway Point. No, the branch’s manager was instead troubled that Muslims would be offended, as she mistakenly thought that a pet chicken was a pet dog.
Or so claimed Shannon Lim, who went on Facebook yesterday morning to laugh/rant about a KFC manager who refused to let him into the premises with his pet chicken, which was mistaken for a whole other animal. Lim wrote that he tried explaining to the manager twice that it was not a dog, but failed to get her to agree that it was a chicken.
“After about 1 minute I complied and left the bird outside in his carrier… where the nice Malay family and I got to watch a group of Chinese, Malay and Indian kids try to steal the chicken and/or take selfies with it.”
The fact that Lim has a companion chicken should come to no surprise to the people who know him. The 32-year-old is a new-gen farmer who founded OnHand Agrarian, an urban farm concept that focuses on sustainably-produced food, including fruits, vegetables, seafood a, d poultry.
