During a lull at work, my friend started telling me a story about a friend of hers who, one day, found herself being involved in a rally infront of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)-Harrison Plaza branch. The reason: unethical treatment of chickens.

Coffee almost shot out of my nose.

The group, she continues, even shoved a male member (the entire person, not just a part of him) into a makeshift cage wherein he started to pumiglas (for the lack of a proper english word at the moment) out of it to supposedly portray these "unethical treatment" which include overcrowding in pens during transport, and the way these chickens are eventually killed: dipped in boiling water.

When asked why she was doing this, and why against KFC specifically, she offered no answer.

Another day, in a fastfood joint, the same girl accosted my friend and asked her,"Do you have any idea how many cows are killed to make your burger?"

"Wala akong pakialam," countered my friend. Extremely hungry that she was, this was the last thing she'd wanna hear.

Weird things happen to normal people. Watch out, you.
