KFC gives cou­ple free chicken for a year

The Western Star - - LOCAL - DIANE CROCKER

CORNER BROOK, N.L. — Corner Brook new­ly­weds Paul and Cathy Par­sons got a spe­cial wed­ding gift on Fri­day — free KFC for a year.

The cou­ple be­came fa­mous last week af­ter a pic­ture of their KFC bucket wed­ding cake and per­son­al­ized cake top­per made the rounds on so­cial me­dia.

As the cou­ple and their chil­dren were sit­ting down to a KFC meal on Fri­day, they got a mes­sage from the com­pany say­ing it had been made aware of the cake and wanted to give them a wed­ding gift.

“We were pretty sur­prised by it,” Paul said on Mon­day.

The cou­ple and their chil­dren had just re­turned from a mini-va­ca­tion with Paul’s best man and his fam­ily in the Rocky Har­bour area.

“When we came back af­ter all the ex­haust­ing wed­ding things that comes with a wed­ding, wed­ding plan­ning and the post-wed­ding and wed­ding cleanup we were like, you know what, we’re just not in the mood to cook.”

With the whole fam­ily in agree­ment the de­ci­sion was made to pick up some food — from KFC, of course.

They had just got­ten home and were un­pack­ing the bags when they got the mes­sage.

“It sounds too ironic, but it ac­tu­ally is true,” said Paul.

“It was hi­lar­i­ous. We got such a kick out of it,” he said.
