The Multiplying of the Chickens! Marilyn Hickey

You're not going to believe this: Marilyn Hickey - remember her? - has apparently duplicated one of Jesus' best known miracles, the multiplying of the loaves and fish- I mean, chickens. According to Charisma:

‘Loaves and Fishes’ Miracle Reported in Egypt
More than 2,000 boxed-lunches inexplicably turned up at a pastors’ conference in Cairo, according to Marilyn Hickey Ministries.

[07.29.08] Bible teacher and evangelist Marilyn Hickey’s recent 10-day trip to Cairo, Egypt—described by organizers afterward as the largest gathering of Christians to ever assemble in the ancient city— included a report of something more astounding than the several hundred who claimed healing and salvation: 2,400 meals from Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) apparently appeared out of thin air.

The reported incident, which if true is a miracle nearly unheard of in modern times, occurred during Hickey’s citywide leaders conference in May, attended by nearly 10,000 pastors and local leaders—from curious Muslims to orthodox Coptic Christians.

According to Hickey, 77, whose ministry organized the meetings in conjunction with the Egyptian Evangelical Association, 3,500 boxed-lunches from KFC were ordered and accounted for. “There were tickets distributed for the lunches,” she said. “The boxes were given out, leaving none in the room.”

After the food was completely distributed, and after the crowd swelled to about 5,000, she said volunteers were astonished to return to what should’ve been a room of empty tables to discover 1,200 more lunches. She said after they handed out the mysterious extras, another 1,200 appeared, leaving a surplus of food and dumbfounded witnesses. Hickey’s staff called it a “loaves and fishes” miracle.

“I am fully convinced that this was a supernatural occurrence,” Hickey told Charisma.

“It is something I have believed to see on my ministry and am overjoyed that it happened.”
I hope she realizes that
  1. God violated some legalities regarding duplicating KFC's secret ingredients in order to perform this miracle!
  2. God didn't make very efficient use of His time - why not just materialize all 2400 boxes at once instead of 1200 at a time?
  3. I don't think God provided them with a very healthy meal either!

This "miracle" is briefly mentioned at the 3 minute 20 second mark of the video report from her ministry, below:
