Los Pollos Del Pantano is a fast-food restaurant chain loved for their artery clogging fried chicken, and loved even more by animal rights activists for the many reasons the company presents that provoke harassment of them. Among the many conspiracy theories groups have cooked up is the existence of the "7 day swamp chicken" - a cross-breed of the steroid pumped North American chicken and the hardy New Zealand pukeko - the means by which the company meet their huge customer demand with only a small handful of farms. One activist group has engaged you to break into their research laboratory and find evidence that supports this conspiracy theory. Your reward? A lifetime supply of organic and free-range tofu.
