Are you really that surprised?
Last week, a KFC customer got a gruesome surprise in his bucket of chicken: a weirdly-shaped chunk of meat which looked, to many people's eyes, like a deep-fried rat. Devorise Dixon bit into the meat and thought it felt weirdly rubbery. When he brought it to the attention of the store manager, he was allegedly told that it was a rat.
Lab results are back and, just as KFC repeatedly explained, it was just a chunk of chicken in a weird, and oddly suggestive, shape. Dixon ought to have been able to tell this, because if he had actually bitten into a rat, he would have gotten a mouthful of skull and organs, not a smooth (if rubbery) chunk of meat.
Furthermore, the meat doesn't look like a rat, it looks specifically like a cartoon rat. I mean, don't get me wrong, it definitely looks like a cartoon rat. Pareidolia rules the day again!
This of course is one of the classic urban legends, the deep-fried rat. It's said by some to be the reason why Kentucky Fried Chicken changed their name to KFC. The rumor is that it's because they can't legally claim that their meat is chicken, so they had to take the word "chicken" out of their name. The truth is as boring as it is obvious: marketing. They wanted to drop the word "fried," because it sounded greasy and unhealthy to consumers, and just calling themselves "KFC" sounded a lot zippier.
