Have yourself a very deep-fried Christmas

Sanders I’ve often said the Internet is useful as an archive of our cultural past. Coming across the picture shown here, I recognize the folly in that idea. Who needs to remember something like this? There’s a vague menace to ol’ Colonel Santa here, and the fact that it’s a record cover muddles things even further. I admire the diverse palette of whoever put Chet Atkins and Harry Belafonte on the same album, but their connection to Kentucky Fried Chicken is, and should probably remain, a mystery. Maybe all those musicians were friends of the colonel, or fans of his tasty chicken. My guess is he threatened to pay their chimneys a visit in late December. Via Boing Boing.
