Sorry, no sporks, it’s finger-lickin good chickin, taters too, yum, share with your party of 3, (wear long sleeves)

The New Zealand postal service has begun delivering Kentucky Fried Chicken in a bid to stem major revenue losses as the number of people using the postal service continue to plummet.

NZ Post and the fast food company have joined forces in a pilot scheme in the North Island port city of Tauranga, with KFC contracting NZ Post to handle the logistics of its new home delivery service.

Mike Stewart, a spokesman for NZ Post, said the company was grappling with how to survive long-term, when every week Kiwis sent a million fewer letters than the week before.

In the last decade the number of letters sent in New Zealand has halved. In an attempt to stem the losses, the price of sending a medium-size letter by FastPost is scheduled to rise by NZ$0.50c in July from NZ$1.80 to $2.30.

Postal delivery in many rural areas of New Zealand has also been reduced from six days to five.

“All post offices around the world are struggling with what to do when mail disappears, we want to survive for another 100 years but we urgently need to diversify our business,” said Stewart.

    Bob would LOVE that right about now. He had me pick up some KFC a couple weeks ago, chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and coleslaw. He didn’t like it like he used to. Then after the show last week we stopped there again and this time we bought something called the Famous Bowl. Everything in one bowl except for the coleslaw. Bob LOVED it and wants that again, but what a long drive that would be. Told him I would get it again next time I’m either up in Lansing, or down in Chelsea where I take our recycling.

    Just told him about New Zealand and there he was, nodding his head enthusiastically, lol.
