For this week's giggle, we return to Lowering the Bar, a blog that reported today on a United Nations security breach by a man posing as Colonel Sanders, of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame. The fake Colonel Sanders made it through security, met the President of the General Assembly, and posed for assorted pictures. The part of the whole report that made me ROTFLMBO, however, was this paragraph:
"During his visit, the Colonel also posed for [a] picture beneath the UN logo inside the assembly chamber, the spot from which world leaders address representatives of member nations. Sadly, he did not take the opportunity to deliver any remarks himself. He can't possibly have made less sense than Muammar Qadhafi (also officially a colonel), who recently addressed the Assembly for 95 minutes in a speech so rambling and loony that the translator - his own personal interpreter - actually gave up. "I just can't take it any more," he said, and reportedly collapsed. If Colonel Qadhafi gets to address the UN, why can't Colonel Sanders?"
Why not, indeed! Please click on this link to read the full article, which has other giggles relating to grilled meat, amusing political denial, and ridiculous law suits. You'll also learn what Colonel Sanders, Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Billy Ray Cyrus all have in common.
The world is an ironically amusing place, isn't it?
