    Colonel Sanders was a failed Father Christmas. He had the look but could never grow the full beard, just the bit around his mouth. This led to great depression and he dabbled with finger food, eventually coming up with a recipe for fried chicken.

    Dan Riffle was a huge fan and copied the chin beard.. but then he grew up and shaved it off.

    True story.

      FALSE.

      I'm currently sporting a very tight goatie. I'll shave it off on the day of the Tribe's home opener.

    Some of us remember when the Colonel was alive and did his television ads. The guy today playing him makes Colonel Sanders look like a fool IMHO

      Guy, isn't it a has been comedian woman who dresses up to look like him?


      And Colonel Sanders is spinning in his grave so much now, he could be used as an alternative power source.

      I thought that a female Doctor Who, with an accent you could cut with a knife and grabbing her teddy was bad enough, but nope, now we have a cross dresser Colonel Sanders.

      I wasn't going to post that video again, since it makes fun of and ruins his good name, but stupid decisions are rife in our world.

        Agreed. Personally, I prefer Popeye's chicken to KFC and I prefer KFC biscuits to Popeye's biscuits. We actually do both in our hometown since they are across the street from each other.


        When we do hamburgers I prefer Burger King and McD's milk shakes. Also, do both since they are across the street from each other.


        Don't know about Vegas. One of the great things about food in Tennessee are the "popular" Mom and Pop restaurants that serve great fried chicken and buttermilk biscuits.


        Back in my Alabama Days my favorite restaurants were honky-tonks that served green tomatoes and greasy hamburgers

    Biscuits!!!!!

    We don't have any KFC biscuits in Australia.

    Probably due to the Dropbear issue,and the great Platypus plague of 72.

    Fried green tomatoes and greasy hamburgers were the 'poor mans' food in the deep south.

    No, not a stand up comedian, but close, l guess...


    Has been crappy, citcom actor is more accurate, (glad we didn't get that series here, although we are on the lookout for more quality ...... to add to our bloated selection).

    Yes, has been is probably not as accurate as career failing, so in desperation she does the cross dressing Col Sanders one.

    At least in AU, we either put them on The X Factor as a judge or throw them in the jungle.

    And this persons quote, (YT) pretty much nails it...

    Honestly I like the change. But you just can't go around disrespecting the dead and messing up they're legacy! Like wtf!
    Yep, Doctor Who being another, (although only two doctors have died, so that is two that are spinning).
