Colonel Sanders Role Puts Reba McEntire In Kitchen Where She Belongs

As a piece of piping hot white Appalachian trash, I have been to the original Corbin, KY location of fast food chain KFC numerous times, and judging by the abundance of rebel flags and blown out trailers scattering the area, context clues tell me the original Col. Sanders must have been pretty darn progressive. I kid. […] The post Colonel Sanders Role Puts Reba McEntire In Kitchen Where She Belongs appeared first on wwtdd. As a piece of piping hot white Appalachian trash, I have been to the original Corbin, KY location of fast food chain KFC numerous times, and judging by the abundance of rebel flags and blown out trailers scattering the area, context clues tell me the original Col. Sanders must have been pretty darn progressive. I kid. The original Harland Sanders was a “racist womanizer” and ” a major contributor to Alabama segregationist George C. Wallace’s 1968 bid for the presidency.” Those Mandingo fights are finger-lickin’ fun! While Sanders’ likeness has been resurrected by multiple male actors such as Darrell Hammond, Norm Macdonald, and hypothetical male Rob Lowe for various ad campaigns, his most recent reincarnation is portrayed by none other than Reba McEntire. This is the first time that a woman has played the fast food maverick, and the Internet gives a bunch of shits because this is 2018 and these things matter. The whole thing is basically Reba hiking up her fringe denim skirt and dropping a steaming load on Sanders’ grave. But this is the same case for any actor who portrays a post-mortem human without his consent, so do we really give a shit? Oh yeah that’s right it’s 2018 and we definitely do. Here’s what McEntire has to say about the buttered roll of a lifetime: I’ve eaten KFC my whole life. It’s been a favorite. It’s American. It’s wholesome. And here’s what whoever the hell is running this circus has to say about casting Reba: We picked Reba McEntire because she is a perfect fit for KFC and Smoky Mountain BBQ. She embodies the qualities of the colonel with her showmanship and entrepreneurial spirit. We love to find people who are really iconic, like Rob Lowe is very iconic. Also, someone who really represents our product. She is definitely sweet. She has that Southern charm. “Southern charm?” McEntire is from Oklahoma. Do they even have trailer parks and meth labs in Oklahoma? As a true Southerner I’m not offended that The Colonel is portrayed by a woman – after all it puts her in the kitchen – I’m offended that they’re somehow roping in some bougie state like Oklahoma into my beloved home. You know the real reason “Strangers ain’t come down from Rocky Top?” We shot them. Wow didn’t expect this to end with that tone. Guess I’m just not a fan of a little something called cultural appropriation.

As we reported, it was announced over the weekend that Mrs. Bush had decided to seek comfort care rather than continue additional medical care as the state of her health declined. On Tuesday, she passed away. George H.W. Bush's office confirmed the news of his wife's death in a statement, saying: "A former First Lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the age of 92. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, President George H. W. Bush, five children and their spouses; 17 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and her brother, Scott Pierce. She was preceded in death by her second child, Pauline Robinson "Robin" Bush, and her siblings Martha Rafferty and James R. Pierce. The official funeral schedule will be announced as soon as is practical." Barbara was the matriarch of an American dynasty -- the wife of the 41st president of The United States of America and the mother of the 43rd, George W. Bush. George W. released his own statement, remembering his mother fondly: "Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was. Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions. To us she was so much more. Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end. I'm a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes." Our condolences go out to her family, friends, and loved ones. [Image via Carrie Devorah/WENN.].....»»
