Finger Lickin' Good

With a stiff upper lip. The Colonel displays some Southern style hospitality:

The Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England, had been told by Kentucky Fried Chicken to remove the words "family feast" from its menu.

KFC's lawyers said the company had registered the wording as a trademark.

But hours later the American firm's lawyers decided not to pursue the issue of the pub's meal description.

KFC's lawyers were first alerted to the use of the phrase by the pub, which stands 1,700 feet (520m) above sea level, after finding a reference to it on the inn's website.

....Owner Tracy Daly said she thought the original letter was a late April Fool's joke.

But on Thursday Ms Daly was contacted by the fast food firm's representatives and told of the change of heart.
"They have very kindly said we can continue using the name.

"Common sense has prevailed. I'm very relieved and ecstatic.

"I'm not going to need my boxing gloves anymore. I've invited KFC to come here and have a meal and shake hands."
