After sticking their beaks into Rosie and Donald’s public fight and failing to broker peace, Kentucky Fried Chicken has come up with another publicity stunt.

Revealing their plans to offer, for the first time, a Lenten-inspired fish sandwich with their Catholic customers in mind, the finger-lickin’ chicken chain has also decided to make it a holy sandwich. They’ve sent Pope Benedict XVI a letter asking his Holiness to bestow his most gracious blessing on the fried piece of Alaskan pollock.

As yet, KFC has confirmation that the Vatican has received their letter but haven’t heard whether the office that has blessed kings, queens, and keychains will lay hands on the “Fish Snacker.”

Maybe calling it “Loaves and Fishes” would elicit a quicker response.
