Wax Colonel Sanders.

Pose With Wax Colonel Sanders (In Transition)

Field review by the editors.

Louisville, Kentucky

Colonel Harland Sanders kicked the proverbial bucket in 1980, but he is indelibly associated with fast food fried chicken around the world. His secret formula of 11 herbs and spices is still used in KFC chain restaurants.

The state of Kentucky is forever attached at the thigh bone to the Colonel, so it makes sense that they pay tribute at the Official Welcome Center in the city where he's buried). Visitors can examine an authentic Col. Sanders white suit, some KFC memorabilia, and pose with a wax Sanders clutching a brimming o'er bucket of fake fried chicken.
