Dan ‘the Man” Has Found A Big Chicken. I Mean a BIG CHICKEN!!
Dan 'the Man" has been on vacation in the south this week. He just sent me a photo of a fascinating piece of "roadside America."
When he was driving through Marietta, Georgia, Dan came upon a 56-foot tall chicken in front of a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise. Apparantly it was built in 1956 and is a legendary landmark in the area. It is the most unusual KFC store you will ever find. Pilots use the "big chick" as a guidepost to nearby airports. When it was severely damaged in a storm in 1993, the owner wanted to tear it down.
The public demanded that their beloved chicken be restored adn so it was rebuilt.
I can only imagine that Dan was salivating when he passed this place!
