The Colonel vs. Flavor Flav

Chicken Wars

1/24/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Flavor Flav opened his chicken joint in the wrong part of town -- cause the guy who owns the Kentucky Fried Chicken RIGHT NEXT DOOR says he's ready to go clock-to-clock for fried chicken supremacy.

0123_flavor_flav_chicken_tmz_exFlav's joint is set to open today in Clinton, IA -- the first of a planned chain of restaurants. But the new place just happens to be next to a KFC -- which just seems like awful planning, doesn't it?

Anyway, the guy who owns that KFC tells TMZ, "We've been in business since 1963, we always welcomed competition. We have competed with six or seven brands over that time and as long as we take care of The Colonel's chicken, we will be just fine."

Looks like we're in for one helluva chicken battle ... boyyyyyyeeeee!!!!!

Honestly, the only good thing about KFC is the cole slaw and I can make better at home. They don't even have wedges anymore, beside the fact that they fry the fish and chicken in the same oil. Long John Silver's is the greasiest fast food there is; absolutely disgusting. And KFC used to be alright, but now it is just as nasty as the rest. And what's all the hatin on Flav about? He's an entertainer for crying out loud; it's what he does. And in my opinion, if he wants to open a chicken restaurant he has as much a right as the rest of us. I think it's cool that he's going to try it in this town; why the hell not? DOWN WITH THE COLONEL!! ;)

Tough to say what the worst item on KFC's menu is, but those biscuits are NASTY! I actually liked the grilled chicken, but I grill mine much better. Not the best planning though; open up a chicken joint next door to a chicken joint? Regardless of how lousy KFC is, not the smartest move. Might just be a brilliant move when you think about it...

Clock necklaces, gold teeth and bad grammar are pre-requisites of the job.

Looks like the space above Flav's sign may be for rent. Maybe the guy at KFC should rent that square and quip away against Flav's joint.
e.g the rat he sells may be kickin but our chicken is finger lickin, KFC, clucking delicious,His might be flav but ours is flavor or some other smarter bs that I'am trying here.

really?    

J- Clinton is not YOUR town. As surreal and joke-like as this whole situation is, there isnt really a reason to be peaved about it. On the other hand, Clinton being somewhere I grew up and still live.. WHY CLINTON? REALLY?? Cimino has restarants many places including Vegas, Why not there? To me just seems like a waste o start a business here when he could go elsehere where it could be a bigger deal. Clinton, REALLY??
