Man Gets a KFC Tattoo Because It’s 2017 and There Are No Rules

“Show me a man with a tattoo and I’ll show you a man with an interesting past.” –Jack London

I like to refer to this quote when I see cringe-worthy tattoos on the internet, to remind myself that some people still understand what I believe are the unspoken requirements of getting a design permanently inked onto your body. Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with this mantra. Enter today’s roastee from down under, Tom Fletcher.

Tom is your average Australian millennial. He describes himself as a dream chaser and has probably never said no to a piece of chicken in his life, which is why this young mate decided to pay homage to his favorite KFC dish, the Zinger Stacker, in the form of a very permanent tattoo.

The one silver lining here is that he first translated the name of the burger into Arabic, so to the untrained eye, it probably passes for a deeply influential quote in an exotic language. Those who speak Arabic, however, can probably tell that 1. Google translate is an unreliable source and 2. Tom is an idiot. An idiot who thinks poor life decisions warrant a KFC discount card and upwards of 17,000 likes on Facebook.
