Reba McEntire Is The New Colonel Sanders And People Are Conflicted


When I think of fried chicken, I think Colonel Sanders. And Colonel Sanders is the epitome of manly ruggedness, with his bolo tie, white linen suit, tiny mustache, and old Southern manners. So, it's a bit confusing for some that his characters is now being played by Reba McEntire in drag.

It's not clear if Reba is permanently on the job, or if she's just there to promote their new flavor Smoky Mountain BBQ, but this version of the Colonel sure throws a helluva hoedown.

"Nothing to see here, folks. Nope, nothin’ at all. Just the same old Colonel with a new flavor of fried chicken," writes KFC's official account.
