    September 1970 issue of the BUCKET. The issue is devoted entirely to the delightful, slightly senile chicken salesman on his 80th birthday.

      By the time he hit 80, the Colonel was experimenting with deep fried cat turds and okra gravy.

      His beard is close to getting "extra crispy" by those candles.

      From the actual picture he looks more fatherly rather than military :) Goes straight into my fav!

      It would be another 10 years before the Colonel finally kicked the bucket.

      I miss KFC here in Brazil. It came here in the 90’s, but left just after a few years.

      I wonder if KFC ever devoted any promos to him at 90 (you know, in 1980), which was ultimately his age of death?

      As much as I like Popeye's, there's just something about the old Colonel's original recipe!!!

      We had KFC in Istanbul, Turkey when I was living there after college. It actually tasted the same unlike the McDonalds which used German beef which wasn't really any good.
