KFC is offering condoms on a limited basis

United States

It is not what you think. Before you get your knickers in a twit, let me explain further. KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) is testing out something in Japan that people are referring to as condoms for your fingers. It is a two-fingered plastic peace you slip over your thumb and forefinger. The purpose is to keep your fingers clean while eating KFC's fried chicken. What fun is that? Anyway, you can read more and see the photo of these finger condoms in the link provided. As far as I remember from my days of eating fried chicken (which I no longer do) the best part was licking my fingers when I was finished with the chicken! It is just being tested in Japan (where it seems to be a big hit). What do you think about finger condoms?
Gloves are sooo last century. To keep your fingers clean while eating fried chicken, KFC in Japan has now started to hand out two-fingered transparent gloves that slip onto your thumb and forefinger, it announced. \???????????!/?????????????!??????????????

I have not yet read your third paragraph and I was thinking "they spoil the pleasure to lick my fingers".

@AbbyGreenhill Two weeks ago I made chicken fingers and I realized I was licking my fingers. Glad I had no guests.

@Asylum - I am sure I ate it years and years ago before I developed stomach issues, but probably the last time was in the early 80s

If I'm not going to be able to lick my fingers I might just as well use a knife and fork. I'm don't want to be that civilized.

The best bit about KFC decades ago was the spare ribs and beans meal... very messy, and "finger-lickin' good"... I think they gave you a couple of lemon-scented wipes to use on your hands for when you were fed-up lickin' ;) I have not seen spare ribs feature in a KFC for nigh on 40 years, guess nobody else liked'em.

If I ate fried chicken I would use my fingers, it really is finger food - w/o the plastic.
