Granted, I hadn’t settled on a *precise* angle quite yet…but I still think this Time story about Harland Sanders is really interesting.
I probably would have used it as a hook to write something on other interesting little-known fast food facts. Alas, the world will never know…but I CAN still promote this super-interesting piece on the founder of KFC:
Did you know, for example, that he failed at over a dozen jobs?
And he really wore white suits every day — with a lighter jacket for the summer and a heavier one for winter?
And he drove a Cadillac with his face on it to promote his chicken?
And he once SHOT a man?
And that he was a lawyer and a real honorary Kentucky colonel?
Put *that* in your pipe and smoke it, Taco Bell.
