A catastrophe of epic proportions has taken place in England and residents of the area just don’t know how to handle it.
At 6:30 a.m. on April 7, an entire meal from KFC was found strewn across the pavement in St. George’s Place, Cheltenham, with no proprietor in sight. The abandoned paper bag, filled with three perfectly intact pieces of fried chicken and french fries, showed no apparent signs of cannibalism by birds or other forms of street predators. But why?
Why was the food left there? Who would do this? Does American-style chicken no longer hold value in England? How about french fries, which are from France? Once the people of Cheltenham caught wind of this blasphemous scene, the Internet erupted with concern.
One distraught fan of the chicken chain, named Dan Cooper, created a “Never Forget” remembrance for the forgotten meal while others took to Twitter to express their mixed emotions. One person even went as far as writing a haiku.

An aftermath photo, reportedly taken at 11:25 a.m., shows what remains of the meal just a few hours after the initial snapshot was taken. While the fried chicken may be gone, citizens of Cheltenham will #NeverForget the Kentucky Fried Chicken tragedy that occurred this very morning on April 7.
