KFC offers free food (again) and free gas (your joke here)

A couple of months ago, KFC nearly had some riots on its hands when patrons swarmed in to get the free Mom_fillupbox grilled chicken meal that Oprah offered to viewers. So what would KFC do as a follow up? Offer another free meal deal this holiday weekend -- and throw in some free gas to boot.

That's right -- to launch the new KFC $5 Fill-Up Box, the company created the KFC $5 Fill-Up Sweepstakes to top off gas tanks – and stomachs. When you register, you can get a gift check for a $5 Fill-Up Box and a $10 gas card. But here's the catch: To win, you must be one of the first 200 people to register each day from Thursday to Sunday during a randomly determined time period between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Is it worth it after all the problems with the previous giveaway? You be the judge.
