A few more buckets of that original recipe, and it'll fit like a glove.

The mannequin's body makes the picture for me. I mean, who knew Colonel Sanders liked to wear low-riders?

It's all just stuff but I cant believe that he was able to get it for such a cheap price. KFC is an international brand and an addiction in so many countries. you'd figure there would be others competing for the stuff.

You know there is a difference between knowing about something or someone and purchasing their product.

Just within the past couple of months one of Beat Takeshi's TV shows, "Unbelievable" did quite a long story about Sander's and his rise to fame an fortune. I'd agree with the guy's statement about 'Every child in Japan knows Colonel Sander's face and uniform" too, with all the advertising that KFC does on TV here it's kind of hard to miss it!
