Smuggling KFC Across the Border

Do you ever crave KFC? Would you be willing to hire a smuggler for it? Probably not, but due to a strengthening blockade on the border between Israel and Egypt, many goods are being smuggled underground. Some are dangerous items like guns and others are….well, fried chicken buckets according to this article from Time.

…An entrepreneur has begun smuggling KFC to customers in the Gaza Strip using secret underground tunnels. According to the New York Times, Khalil Efrangi, 31, runs a small shop in Gaza called Yamama that will deliver a 12-piece bucket of KFC for $27, about twice what it costs across the border in Egypt, where the food is prepared.

I had KFC for the first time in about 10 years recently and found the lack of greens a little depressing…but there is no accounting for taste. Is there any food you’d consider breaking laws for? Other than my Mother’s cooking, I can’t think of any.
