Does Chuck E Cheese RECYCLE Pizza?! ►
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be haunted by Colonel Sanders? What could make such a thing a reality? That's where today's theory starts! You see in Japan KFC is HUGELY popular, so much that there are even statues of the Colonel himself. Would you believe that one of those statues is responsible for a CURSE put on a Japanese baseball team? Theorists, this is about to get WEIRD!

Think that intro was from a woman saying why does kernel Sanders have such a detailed head but a stick body as a joke comment which appeared on a R/Whoooooosh video

Matt Pat I’m actually gonna have to disagree with you on this one turkey is most definitely the traditional meal you have on Christmas. Atleast it’s the one I’ve had all my life. Like always amazing vid. Baseball is my third favorite sport I used to love going to Yankees game with my dad.

This is kind of embarrassing, but I didn't think there were KFCs outside of Kentucky until I was in 5th grade. Also random fact about Colonel Sanders that may or may not be true (my parents told me and I want to believe it's true so please don't crush my dreams and say it's not): his tombstone has a golden chicken on it

A curse because of a statue of Cl. Sanders??? Puh-leeze! More likely that they committed a destructive foolish act (sin) and haven't repented, apologized and/or restored yet.
