A KFC 7-foot bucket mysteriously turned up on a woman’s Waynesboro, Georgia front lawn in the middle of the day. Apparently no one saw the culprit, who put the KFC 7-foot bucket in the front yard, but it turned out that the new lawn ornament is a welcomed addition. What some might call a hinderance turned out to be an object that has brought much joy to the woman, her family, neighbors and the ocassional drive-by stranger.
According to UPI.com on July 30, the bucket was the first thing Aleena Headrick saw driving up to her home and the first questions about the KFC bucket went to her teenagers. The teens came out of the house to take a gander at the giant fried chicken container when their mother beckoned them to the front door to check out the new addition to their yard.
They too had no idea how the bigger than life bucket got there. Soon folks started showing up on the front lawn taking pictures of the big bucket. It put a smile on many faces so no matter how it got there, Headrick decided to embrace the new addition to her lawn. She told the media:
“Too often we just need something to laugh about and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck.”
The mystery of the KFC 7-foot bucket was solved, it was Hendrick’s landlord, Freddie Taylor, who put the life-size bucket on the lawn. Taylor is a collector of antiques and because of the graphics on this KFC bucket, Taylor dates the giant piece back 30 or 40 years.
He plans to put the giant bucket on a pole in the front yard for everyone to see. Let’s just hope that passers-by don’t mistake Headrick’s kitchen window for a drive-thru window. Maybe she should practice saying “original or extra crispy” just in case!
