The new Popeye's Restaurant in Afghanistan will be located in Kandahar.

SANDY SPRINGS, Georgia - The Popeye's Chicken Corporation has just informed the public that it has worked out a deal with the government of Afghanistan.

According to Popeye's Spokesperson Geneva "Chicky" Queensberry a Popeye's Restaurant will be built in Kandahar but the name Popeye will be changed at the request of the Afghan government.

Afghanistan's national news agency The Sand Castle has made it known that the Afghan government did not want a name associated with the military such as Popeye, who is of course an American sailor.

Afghan government officials met with executives from the Popeye chain and both came to an agreement that the new Popeye's Restaurant will be known as Olive Oyl's Chicken Restaurant.

As everyone knows Olive Oyl is Popeye's cartoon girlfriend.

The government was thrilled and so was the Popeye's Corporation since Olive Oyl is extremely skinny and that is exactly the type of person they want associated with their chicken fast food franchise.

SIDENOTE: The Afghan government plans to print out 200,000 posters of Olive Oyl eating a chicken breast. The posters will be placed all over Afghanistan from camel repair shops to palm tree nurseries.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
