that bright, crayon red hair...hmmm, i think we can all figure out who elmo's REAL parents were, right?

It would explain why he serves his food in a bucket. :P

Eight legged chickens, no, but I have seen four-legged chickens. Not that all four legs are really drumstick-quality though.

". . . the bright red hair, the hand-me-down robe."

Paraphrasing Tom Felton, from "The Chamber of Secets". (the movie that was directed by the "Gremlins" director).

So far the Colonel, Dave Thomas, Ronald McDonald, Wendy, Elmo and the entire Weasely family are linked in something.

I couldn't divide a worm in biology class. It just didn't want to split. Nobody else's flatworms wanted to split either, except one student. Everyone else came to that one student's microscope just to see two flatworms. Science class is the best way to turn people off to science, just as art class turned me off to art.

and then along came Yahoo Serious...hmmm, Johnny Rotten? Maybe we could tie in Boss Hogg from The Dukes of Hazard.

i could turn you back on to art, i'm certain...i promise it has nothing to do with flatworms creating a KFC version of Jonestown, nor pedantic has-beens who couldn't be artists themselves.

And why do Ron Howard, Ronald McDonald and Ronald Weasely have the same first name?
(I just remembered that Tom Felton's real hair color is red, too.) Garfield doesn't count, since he's a cat, does he.

Thomas Jefferson has sure been around.

That's a sad image. A bunch of lifeless flatworms laying around, dressed alike, inside a KFC bucket.

I used to work for the marketing arm of KFC (but managed to get out). The thing is, this is not quite true. There are no eight legged chickens (they have managed six, but that's the limit). Also, it's not the whole Colonel...

darn I'm planning to go by KFC after work tonight :(

One time I got chicken for half off because we came right before closing and they had to get rid of it, plus they didn't have the kind that was ordered. I need to repeat this feat...

I started cracking up after reading the fourth panel.
I stumbled upon this site and started reading all the comics and the only thing I don't like is how every person has to correct every small insignificant grammar mistake. I find it annoying.

Isn't it an uncanny coincidence how Scott resembles Kane and asks us to join him for great justice?

Yes Brother, we will join you! PEACE THROUGH POWER!!1

This is why I stick to Popeye's. I would much rather fund the revival of a 'roid-raging sailor with a heart of gold than a crazy old coot that was obsessed with chickens.

It doesn't get funnier than "INDEED! FOR I HAVE EATEN THE SLAW!"

It really gets very Lovecraft with "INDEED! FOR I HAVE EATEN THE SLAW!"
I'm going to have to share this comic with everyone I know, so they know why I'll be yelling this at the top of my lungs everytime I see, eat, or hear mention of fried chicken or cole slaw.


Or would it be funnier NOT to tell them?

I read the last two (one?) bubbles in the fourth panel in a southern drawl. It was awesome

Also: See Slenderman for how to make a creepy as **** urban legend

Good to see some old Mullet Boss reference every once in a while.

Those of you rushing to bicker about grammar and typos: I hope you all die virgins. Probably most of you will.

Soon, we'll all be members of Pen Fifteen!

Now I want KFC.

Uh-oh. Octo-Chicken rumour receives frosty response; they're suing.

In China, specifically.

But still.
