Did Someone Finally Release KFC’s Secret Recipe?


One of the shrewdest moves a poker player can make is to maintain a stony stare even after his opponents have figured him out.

Most fast food restaurants welcome kids with open arms. In fact, they tend to purposefully court them. McDonald’s has its Happy Meals. Burger King has its crowns.

To celebrate the chicken chain’s 60th anniversary they designed the “Memories Bucket,” which, not only holds your eight-piece meal, but doubles as a photo printer. Presumably the actual electronics are insulated and cordoned off from any possible greasy chicken disasters.

Colonel Sanders Is Back and He Sounds More Like Bill Clinton Than Ever

2015 has been a productive year for Darrell Hammond. Last year, the former SNL cast member returned to the show as its announcer. However, thanks to Hillary Clinton’s prominent role in the upcoming presidential election, Hammond is back on-camera, reprising his old Bill Clinton impersonation.
