Imagine coming home and discovering a 7-foot Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket outside of your house. What do you do, aside from get pissed once you discover that it's empty? Take a picture and share it with everyone, of course.
That's what Aleena Headrick of Waynesboro, Ga. did after driving past her home and noticing the new addition to her front yard. "I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating," she said in an interview with WAGT. Amused by the ordeal, she posted the photo to her Facebook page.
Soon enough, the new addition became a tourist attraction due to its mystery, as well as its appearance. Then, the mystery was solved: Freddie Taylor, who owns the home, is a collector of old signs. After purchasing the bucket, which he said is "probably 40 years old," he placed it on the yard. He does own the house, after all.
Taylor told WAGT he plans to keep the bucket on the property, and Headrick is cool with it. Apparently, its persence makes it easier to give people directions. Nobody can miss a 7-foot Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket.
