In a tale that proves that it really is the thought that counts, a man in Canada recently made headlines by giving his wife KFC for their 15th wedding anniversary. But before you think you can impress your spouse with a box of popcorn chicken, keep in mind this was not your average drive thru run.
Mike and Angela Hovak Johnston know a little something about traveling long distances for Kentucky Fried Chicken. When the Canadian couple married in 2001, Mike insisted they serve chicken from the fast food chain at their wedding reception. It might sound like an uninspired choice except that the reception was held in the tiny town of Kugluktuk in Canada’s sparsely populated Nunavut territory. To make his dream a reality, the couple had to have frozen KFC chicken shipped over 350 miles from the comparatively bustling metropolis of Yellowknife in the neighboring Northwest Territories (population ~19,000). “Everybody that was invited to the wedding was more excited about the KFC than our wedding,” Angela told CBC News.
