Kentucky Fried Chicken, oops, I mean KFC, has hired off-duty police officers and private security guards to help transport the original secret recipe for their fried chicken to a new, temporary location.
From the AP article:
Colonel Harland Sanders’ handwritten recipe of 11 herbs and spices was to be removed today from safekeeping at KFC’s corporate offices for the first time in decades. The temporary relocation is allowing KFC to revamp security around a yellowing sheet of paper that contains one of the country’s most famous corporate secrets.
The biggest prize, though, is a single sheet of notebook paper, yellowed by age, that lays out the entire formula — including exact amounts for each ingredient — written in pencil and signed by Sanders.
Are you serious? This has to be nothing more than a marketing stunt, right? KFC doesn’t even have the best fast food fried chicken (FFFC for short) out there. That would belong to Bojangles. Go ahead, try to argue with that!

You can not be serious… This has to be a joke or publicity stunt… Thanks for the WTF and laugh!
This is as serious as it gets! I have a friend “on the inside” at McCormick, where the 11 herbs and spices are combined to form the Colonel’s secret recipe. This person we will call him “Unfathomable Gullet” (for national security matters), explained to me the manufacturing process, and it is super secret.
Mr MacKenzie: Oh how I hate the Colonel with his wee beady eyes “Oh! Yer going to eat mah chicken!”
Everyone knows he puts a secret ingredient in there that makes you crave it fortnightly, smartass!
Dell, I owe you a beer for that reference.
Don’t forget the The Queen, the Vatican, the Gettys, and the Rothschilds.
Ahh yes, the Pentavaret! They meet twice yearly in a mountain retreat known as “The Meadows.”
