Colonel Kami-sama

Okay, a little explainaition - usually these little placards (ema) are used at Shinto shrines. People write their prayers on the back and leave them at the shrine, presumeably for the gods to answer.

 

This was hanging from the ceiling at the Shijo-Kawaramachi KFC.

 

Now what on earth would you pray to the Colonel for? I mean, he is dead, which techinally qualifies you for godhood in Shinto, near as I know. But still.... weird....
