They should have used Chairman Kaga.  He would have been a perfect Japanese Colonel.

/Especially with his wee beady eyes.

They should have used a gigantic (are there any other?) Sumo Wrestler. Get him a suit, wig and the whole 9 yards and just let him chow down a bucket on film.

There's been so many recent incarnations of Colonel Sanders, the Estate of Terry Nation has asked for residuals.

Is international KFC quality decent? I used to like it as a kid but tried it recently and it was mostly bones.

I stopped eating it (in the US) over a decade ago because every time I did, I had grease running down my arms as I ate, and afterward I would have a stomach ache like Mike Tyson punched me in the gut.  It's just not good food.

Ezell's is bland AF. So is Bok-Bok.....I will *never* understand why people eat there. Might as well eat Swanson's Frozen Chicken.

I go to the Popeye's by my work if I need a fried chicken fix.

If it's good enough for Oprah, it's good enough for me.  Also, you seem to have defective taste buds.

I went to Garfield in the mid eighties. Ditching the cafeteria and getting a two piece with a sweet roll from the original Ezell's was the bomb. Think it was less than two bucks.

Truth is it is good fried chicken, but I've had better and I've had comparable. There has has been a lot more worse, too. Ezell's is a solid fried chicken shop and that damn sweet roll is the shiznit.

In Japan, it's apparently a traditional choice for Christmas dinner. Not even joking
