I’ve been spearheading our Thanksgiving team lunch that’s scheduled for this Friday.  I am mainly spearheading it because ‘spearheading’ consists of choosing what foods to order for this meal.  So I asked admin A to browse around Whole Foods and Fresh Direct and see what turkey-sides-dessert combo she can come up with for $100 ($10/person) and I would review the order.

Unfortunately it turns out both Fresh Direct and Whole Foods are quite pricey ($60 turkey?!?!??!?!  KILL YOURSELF) so we decided we needed to come up with some alternatives.  Coworker M suggested we get rotisserie chicken instead of turkey, so I of course immediately thought KFC.  I guess I accidentally said that out loud (and by ‘out loud’ I mean I mass-IMed everyone) and apparently I was the only person who was enthusiastic about the idea.  Here are some other reactions I got when I suggested we buy our Thanksgiving chickens from KFC:

B: SICK
A: sick.  i really wouldn’t want that
K: no way

I guess I got shot down.  Not really sure why everyone’s so against it.  Could you imagine how much food we could get at KFC for $100?!?!??!  We could probably feed all of Africa.

Anyway, I was discouraged by that, but luckily I had this tonight to cheer me up:
