Maybe it was Old-Timey Southerner Day at the U.N.? That's really the only logical explanation for how a Colonel Sanders impersonator could make it all the way through U.N. headquarters
and get a picture of himself shaking a senior official's hand. Either that or one of their security guards loves them some potato wedges.
The publicity stunt was dreamed up by KFC as part of an attempt to have their "Grill Nation" become a member of the U.N. The world body is pretty adamant that that won't be happening. Ever.
They're also seriously miffed that a guy who is obviously a Col. Sanders impersonator and not a diplomat managed to shake hands with Ali Treki
, the President of the U.N. General Assembly, and an official investigation has been launched, even though the Colonel reportedly behaved like a true Southern gentleman.
The good news is this might be their one chance to discover the Colonel's blend of 11 secret herbs and spices. The bad news is they probably don't care.
