KFC Threatens Legal Action Against 'Hitler' Chicken Restaurant

Schoolchildren dressing up as Nazis and a billboard advert showing Hitler were just the start.

Thailand's obsession with so-called 'Nazis chic' just won't go away - and now a fried chicken takeaway called Hitler - complete with a logo showing the Nazi leader in a bow tie - has opened its doors.

The bizarre restaurant opened last month in Thailand and images of it are doing the rounds on Twitter as shocked customers take photos of the offensive eatery.

"Hitler" fried chicken better surrender its logo, because the Colonel's ready to fight.

Kentucky Fried Chicken told The Huffington Post Friday it may take "legal action" against a fried chicken shop named Hitler that sports a storefront emblem very similar to KFC's, only with Adolf Hitler's head replacing Colonel Sanders.

"We find it extremely distasteful and are considering legal action since it is an infringement of our brand trademark and has nothing to do with us," a spokesman for KFC parent Yum! told The Huffington Post in an email.

Hitler, which recently opened in Bangkok, Thailand, first garnered attention after Andrew Spooner, author of the "Footprint Thailand Handbook," snapped a photo of the restaurant and tweeted it out in May:

Maybe we should send a squadron of B-52's over there and show them how Hitler carpet bombed London.

Well, I had a German food dinner party in June, and I goose stepped into my dining room with the food platters while I had some spoof Hitler You Tube playing on the desk. We mocked up German accents. Lots of laughs we had!

Hitler and the Colonel would probably hit off.
Those two could laugh for hours.

Ha! Ha! Nope! Have barely ever watched her. Her food is too rich.

We had a blast spoofing on Nazis' though.

A piece of bagel got trapped in my toaster last year. It was in there for a while, sometimes glowing red while the toaster was in use, before I managed to pry it out. I suppose I can consider that a food related reenactment of the fire bombing of Dresden.

Silly American corporations thinking other countries give two shits about our trademarks or our effort to enforce them...
