School district pulls menu featuring 'KKK chicken'2/29/2012
A Massachusetts school district scrambled to replace a cafeteria menu that said "KKK Chicken Tenders" would be served for lunch on Friday.

Scannell told the Eagle Tribune that the outrage grew after a parent reported the error to the media instead of to a school representative. The lunch entrée should have been written as "KK Chicken," an abbreviation for "Krispy Krunchy." But, as one hooked-on-phonics parent griped to WCVB Boston, "If they're teaching our kids how to spell correctly, it should be 'CCC.'"
