On our way home the other day, Stella saw a billboard advertising Star Wars in 3-D. After pointing out the sign, she then proceeded to tell me who all was in the movie. The next landmark we passed was KFC, with a big picture of Colonel Sanders. Stella then informed me that Colonel Sanders was also in Star Wars.
Hmm…this could explain a few things. Maybe the reason the fried chicken is so addicting is because The Colonel is using some voodoo Jedi mind-trick: “you will buy my chicken and you will like it.”
It reminds me of the movie So I Married an Axe Murderer, when Mike Meyer’s character’s father is referencing The Colonel:
…Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee *beady* eyes, and that smug look on his face. “Oh, you’re gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!”
Charlie Mackenzie: Dad, how can you hate “The Colonel”?
Stuart Mackenzie: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly…
Maybe Stella is on to something – maybe there is more to KFC than we thought. Beware, the force is strong with that one…
