Kentucky’s Fried Chicken aka KFC outlet is equivalent to heaven for all the chicken lovers of the world because of the wonderful fried chicken that they offer. Till now, no one has achieved success in finding out the secret of the Colonel’s recipe but one man named Mike Edgette has discovered something pretty unusual about KFC’s Twitter handle.
.@KFC follows 11 people.
Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.
11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.

It’s an open secret that the recipe of KFC has 11 herbs and spice and on Twitter, its handle follows only 11 people, 6 men named Herb and 5 spice girls. This has become the biggest pun of the year on social media.
Netizens were all praise for Mike Edgette who hails from South Dakota, US, and his Twitter handle is @edgette22. When Mike Edgette shared his finding on the micro-blogging site, Twitterati got berserk and his tweet received more than 7 lakh likes. The Colonel also endorsed Mike Edgette on LinkedIn for social networking.
Mike Edgette tweeted,
“Weirdest part of this whole thing is the @kfc Colonel adding me to @LinkedIn & endorsing me for social networking.
Didn’t see that coming.”

He was not only admired but also got a unique gift from KFC.
The special gift is the painting of Mike in which he is riding on the back of Colonel with a KFC fried leg, something like we Indians witness in the stories of Vikram Aur Betaal.
Take a closer look:
Mike Edgette shared the painting’s pics on Twitter with caption, “Dreams DO come true. #GiddyUpColonel Thanks @kfc”
Dreams DO come true. #GiddyUpColonel
