Oh dear, these poor girls were duped and got naked, what a shame. I’ve heard of similar stories involving other fast food places and suspect a copycat effect. The last KFC girl story was about using the big sink as a hot tub and can be seen here.
Naked KFC workers fly coop in hoax

MANCHESTER – Three KFC workers were hoaxed by a cruel prank caller into spraying themselves with a fire extinguisher, stripping naked and then going outside.
Cook Mary McCarthy said the Daniel Webster Highway store manager, Sonia Gilbert, received a phone call Thursday from someone claiming to be from the corporate office, telling her to test the fire suppression system.
Gilbert complied, and McCarthy said that resulted in the release of a chemical powder in the sandwich area where she and a third employee, Fay Owens, were working.
The caller then told the women to strip and go outside, because they had been contaminated. Thatâ€™s when police got involved.
Police Sgt. Todd Boucher said officers went to the restaurant in response to a call about a naked woman standing in a doorway.
Bouxcher said the caller had told the employees to go outside and strip and urinate on one another.
As fire, health department and police investigated the incident, McCarthy stood outside the side door of the restaurant, wearing one jacket and using another as a skirt.
Standing next to a pile of clothing on the ground, McCarthy said: â€œWe had to strip out here.â€
Boucher said police are investigating to find out who is behind the prank. Similar pranks on fast food workers, in which callers ordered them to strip or conduct strip searches of each other, have been carried out around the nation in recent years.
The KFC workers were sent to a local hospital. District Fire Chief Michael Gamache said because the chemical powder is a respiratory irritant, employees needed to be checked and the restaurant needed to be cleaned and cleared to reopen by the City Health Department.
