Fried Chicken and Randomness

Did you vote for the AOL Running Man yet?

If you happen to check out the site, take a minute to note how eerily similar Colonel Sanders and Orville Redenbacher look. Do we know if there's a backstory here? Like, perhaps they're cousins in real life but had a falling out when Orville declared he was forgoing the family fried chicken business to instead promote gourmet popping corn. Was Colonel Sanders really a colonel? And why is colonel it spelled that way instead of kernel? Oh, I bet I know... because that just brings it back around to corn.I feel obligated to point these similarities out to you, readers, so you won't be caught unawares and wig out if you ever see their two photos side-by-side. Just saying. It's weird. (I feel like this observation might lead some of you to think I've really lost it this time. Don't be alarmed. I am just sleepy & wacky.) That is all.
