    the Kentucky Fried Thread

    New studies conducted at Stanford University indicate a clear link between the "mullet" hair-do, and high blood pressure. - Scientists believe that the high blood pressure may come from long periods of elevated stress levels caused by the feeling that everybody is laughing at you behind your back, because they think you can't afford a decent hair cut. - well ... that, coupled with the realisation that you don't recieve any discount for only getting 75% of an actual hair cut.

    May you be peaceful and at ease.
    May you be happy.

    Rented? Heh, I've owned that movie for a decade or more. Every martial artist should have it for the excellent Enter The Dragon parody (you have our gwwwaatttitude!) and everybody else AND all martial artists should have it for Catholic High School Girls In Trouble. The rest of the movie is bonus material! And **** good bonus material at that!

    and wasn't it Jackie Chan's American debut??




    what about "They Call me Bruce"?

    any takers?

    I thought it was pretty funny.

    Karate Fried Chicken

    KFC is fairly successful in Asia because it's easier to get chicken than corn-fed beef (a basic requirement for most fast food hamburger chains). The KFC in China used to have a Col. Saunders statue outside with slanty eyes.

    KFC Commissions Tasty Martial Arts-Inspired Mural to Launch All New Teriyaki Boneless Wings

    'Karate-Kickin' Colonel' Mural Painted with Special Ingredient to be Auctioned for Charity

    LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- To showcase the unique flavor of KFC's new Teriyaki Boneless Wings, Kentucky Fried Chicken challenged experiential artist Phil Hansen to create a one-of-a-kind mural of Colonel Sanders. To give the mural a tasty twist, Hansen used KFC's new boneless wings' Teriyaki sauce as his medium.

    "When we saw Phil's work and his karate-style painting technique, we just knew he had to be involved in the launch of KFC's new Teriyaki Boneless Wings," said James O'Reilly, chief marketing officer for KFC. "After all, the distinctive taste of the new Teriyaki wings delivers a one-two punch -- restaurant-style flavor at an inexpensive price."

    Karate Kickin' Colonel

    It wouldn't be a KFC product without some sort of secret, and Hansen's mural is no different. Hansen, from Eden Prairie, Minn., employed a specially concocted 'paint' made from Teriyaki sauce to create an image that tastes as good as it looks.

    Drawing inspiration from the Japanese martial art to reflect the origins of the Teriyaki sauce, Hansen used his unique 'karate-painting' technique by coating his hands and feet (and even his cheek at one point) in the 'paint' and karate chopping, kicking and head butting a wall-sized canvass.

    A minute-long film posted on YouTube shows the mural's eight hour production in high speed, finally revealing Colonel Sanders in mid karate kick. To view the video, visit http://www.kfc.com/ or http://www.youtube.com/justanotherphil. The finished painting will be auctioned on eBay with proceeds benefiting Colonel's Scholars, a charitable program providing students nationwide with much needed college scholarships.

    Teriyaki Boneless Wings, the latest innovation from KFC, are boneless 100% chicken breast, marinated and breaded in KFC's special seasonings and fried to crispy golden perfection. Then, they are fully dipped in KFC's Teriyaki sauce, the perfect balance of sweet and tangy flavors. The new Teriyaki Boneless Wings Combo (six boneless wings, potato wedges and a medium drink) will be available starting July 10 and priced at $3.99, plus tax. Prices may vary by location.

    KFC Japan Celebrates 'Colonel Day' With Fried Chicken Computer Accessories, Jewelry
    posted on 2014-09-04 22:00 EDT by Lynzee Lamb

    If only there was a way to make computer keyboards and mice tastier, crunchier, and fried. KFC Japan is ready to fill the marketing void in chicken-based computer products with some limited edition items to celebrate "Colonel Day."

    Colonel Sanders is celebrating his birthday, and on the auspicious day of its creator, KFC Japan is holding a Twitter campaign where participants have a chance to win one fried-chicken mouse, one keyboard with chicken keys, and one giant fried USB memory stick.


    Tasty.


    Tastier.


    Tastiest.

    The fast-food franchise is also giving away 47 pairs of fried-chicken earrings. In total, 50 winners will be chosen after the campaign ends on September 24.



    To enter, Twitter users need to follow KFC, link to the campaign's promotional page with the hashtag “#KFCカーナルズデー” (“KFC Colonel's Day”).

    If you only glance at it, that 'drumstick' looks a lot like something else, and it ain't a piece of chicken, unless it's chicken that's been eaten, digested and excreted. And can someone actually 'win' with earrings like that?
