Czechs set for next wave in fast food invasion

In the mid-1970's Georg and Yortuk Festrunk, two brothers from the former Soviet Satellite nation of Czechoslovakia, immigrated to the United States of NYC in search of a party and big-breasted American foxes.

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the subsequent division of Czechoslovakia into Czech and Slovak (Why the Slovaks could not bear to keep the ia ending is beyond me.) in 1993, Georg and Yortuk returned to Czech Republic and opened a KFC franchise to capitalize on the world's apparent obsession with fried big breasted American chickens.

Well, not only did their KFC operation take off like a fox from a nightclub full of swingers, but according to this article it appears that the fast food market in the Czech Republic is hot to trot for more tripe.

For those of you who are too young to remember (or were too stoned at the time to recall) Georg and Yortuk Festrunk I offer you this video for your tuition.

But they did keep the "ia". The country is called Slovakia, or Slovensko in Slovak.
