Food For Thought 4.1.09

"Every patched pothole comes with the Colonel's very own stamp of approval." (Roger Eaton, president of KFC, announcing the fast food chain's plans to fill potholes in at least four American cities, free of charge. In return, the company gets to stamp its brand on each patch--which you will notice, um...well, maybe while pushing your rust bucket to the curb or if, say, Robert Powell pulls you over, cuffs you and pins you to the asphalt. Quoted in the Chicago Tribune.)
