K.F.C’s Colonel Sanders visits the U.N for offical photograph…seriously


Dressed in the fast food icon’s familiar white suit and black bow tie, the actor evaded tight security to gain access to the restricted areas of the complex.

He even posed for a photograph with Ali Treki, the new president of the UN General Assembly, before the alarm was raised and he was ejected. A spokeswoman for Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, yesterday said that an investigation had been launched into the security breach, which was dreamed up by KFC as a promotional stunt.

Umm, you think???

As part of its campaign to promote a new menu range, KFC is “lobbying” the UN for the fictional Grilled Nation to be accepted as a member state


The actor, named by KFC as Robert Thompson, also posed for photos in the main General Assembly hall beneath the UN logo.

The real Colonel Sanders died in 1980, half a century after devising the “secret recipe” of herbs and spices that is still used for cooking chicken in KFC restaurants today.

Israeli Prime Minister rips Ahmadinejad a new one!

Well I guess the photo-op that O-man set up the other day was exactly that, a photo-op.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a new one today.

He said Ahmadinejad’s comments were a disgraceful “mockery of the charter of the United Nations.” He said people who listened to Ahmadinejad gave “legitimacy to a man who denies the murder of 6 million Jews, while promising to wipe out the state of israel, the state of the Jews.”

“Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come and to those who left in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity, and you brought honor to your countries.”

There is no doubt this happened, does the Israeli P.M really need to pull out minutes from the Nazi’s to show this?

Is it just me, but I wonder how these crazy people get elected or is it just rigged?

Its a shame this was even a topic at the U.N summit when so many other things are pressing in the world.
