Yorkshireman, Ken Mither, of Cleckhuddersfax today made a public apology for intimating that fast food chain, KFC, failed in its duty of customer service by neglecting to provide gravy with their chips.
Mither, 64, had previously stated that he had refused to partake of a lunchbreak KFC feast - because the chips couldn't be purchased with gravy.
But Mither obviously didn't do his homework.
KFC do serve gravy portions - in two sizes no less - and quite splendid gravy it is too, by all accounts.
"Eeh! I feels a reet twaddock nah, me'sen," a contrite Mither muttered, as he cradled his head in his hands. "Ah just dint know! Tha knows?"
It seems that following Mither's grumpy outburst with the local press, his wife pointed out to him that KFC actually DO sell gravy, and that it's actually rather nice. And then a Facebook 'friend' named Chris James reinforced the fact by revealing that he swears by KFC gravy, especially with chips.
(Fries in America. Apparently over there they call chips fries, and crisps chips. Which all seems a bit of a rum do, to a down-to-earth Yorkshireman - and utterly irrelevant at that.)
Gravy on crisps is almost as obscene as chips without gravy, at least according to Ken Mither.
"Eeh, Am reet sorry abaht this misunderstannin," he said. "Ah just dint realise KFC did reet proper gravy. In tubs. In two portion sizes. I stand corrected. Whip me reet now. Ter within an inch o' me life. Goo on. Ah deserve it. Ah'll tell thee worrid is though - Ah'm just dead passionate abaht gravy. So, ter't KFC - Ah'm dead sorry me loves. When tha's as passionate abaht gravy as like wot I am, it's an easy mistake to make. Anyroad, As geet nay time ter 'ang abaht, coz Ah'm off o'er yon pond ter that Americky. Blame t' t' wife fer that. She were watchin' Man v Food tuther day - an' there's a shop o'er theer wot does 'ot pastrami sarnie, and then they dip t' roll i' gravy. Looked reet grand it did, so Ah'm off o'er theer on t' thaeroplane. Ah'll 'ave summer that, n' no mixtake!"
