Remember the Colonel

Twenty-four years ago today, Colonel Sanders passed away from leukemia, leaving the world just a bit less savory. Yonek and myself have a tradition, whereby we pay hommage to fallen restaurant visionaries on the anniversary of their passing. Specifically, we order something from their restaurants. We have a similar tradition for Dave Thomas on January 8th.

I encourage all of you out there who, in some way, have been touched by the Colonel's pressure fried chicken and savory spices to go out and pay tribute in the best way that you can - by eating an entire 20 piece bucket by yourself and falling asleep on the couch.

Colonel Sanders. 1890-1980. Always remember.

Charlie: Dad, how can you hate "The Colonel"?
Stuart: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly, smartass!

I'm an asshole and had a huge steak from John's for $5.

Riz: That's the best, simplest dinner ever. Just get a huge steak, throw it on the grill, and brace for deliciousness.
