Aleena Headrick says, “I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside.”
And I know what you’re thinking? The answer is no. There is no chicken in that seven foot bucket. Headrick tells me it appeared Thursday afternoon and she had no idea where it came from or who it belongs to. Maybe it’s a sign? We’ve heard of heavenly manna, but what about original recipe? Headrick says, “Too often we just need something to laugh about and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck.”
The bucket has already become a popular landmark. Headrick says people have been stopping to take pictures with it.
Freddie Taylor is Headrick’s landlord. He collects signs like this, and he says the bucket is quite a find. He says, “That bucket right there, if you notice it, it doesn’t say KFC. It says Kentucky Fried Chicken. That bucket’s probably forty years old.”
Taylor plans to have it mounted on a pole so it will be permanently displayed for all to see. But Headrick isn’t mad. She says it will make her house hard to miss. She says, “It’s unusual but it makes really landmarks when people come to our house. We can just say, ‘Come down to the giant KFC bucket and turn right.'”
