Here’s Why The New Zealand Post Office Is Delivering KFC Chicken Along With Mail

When’s the last time you visited your local post office? We bet you can’t remember; after all with email, WhatsApp and a bunch of other online messaging services at our fingertips, why would we need to visit a post office? 

In a bid to offset losses caused by a massive reduction in the amount of people using their postal services, the New Zealand Postal Service has decided to deliver KFC along with mail.
