Giving The Colonel His Due

Speaking of iconic, KFC is memorializing Harland Sanders in what Adfreak calls, “a sprawling multimedia extravaganza” on ColonelSanders.com.

The site features several quotes from The Colonel. Here’s one: “When I work, I forget my little aches and pains. When I’m really busy, I forget I ever had an ache.”

The site is also soliciting stories from the crowd. Here’s a story from Lorri Jewell: “I met the Colonel back in 1973. I was working in a cafeteria in Lauderhill, Fla. I was on the serving line and I asked him if he wanted some chicken, and he laughed and took the fish instead.”
