Sick and tired of being out-holied by McDonald's and seeing Ronald rake in millions in Filet O'Fish sales every Lent, KFC has not only introduced its own fish sandwich, it's asked the Pope his ownself to bless the things.

According to an AP report:

KFC has asked Pope Benedict XVI to bless the Fish Snacker Sandwich, a Lenten addition to the chain's Snacker sandwich line. ... KFC sent the Pope a letter earlier this month, asking him to bestow a blessing on the sandwich. While the sandwich is being marketed generally, John O'Reilly, chief marketing officer for KFC, said the sandwich should prove especially popular on Friday's, when Catholics traditionally don't eat meat in the 40 days leading up to Easter Sunday.
