Aleena Headrick of Waynesboro, Georgia spotted a strange sight in front of her home recently.
Headrick told WAGT NBC 26 News, “I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure that I was hallucinating.
So I called my teenagers who were at home and checked to, had them go outside."
Headrick was not seeing things. There was in fact a huge 7-foot Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in front of her house, and the family had no clue who it belonged to nor where it came from.
The closest KFC is 5.5 miles away.
The distinctive sign has already become a landmark in the area and people have stopped to take pictures with the beastly bucket.
Headrick’s landlord and owner of the home, Freddie Taylor. Taylor collects signs like this one and he thinks the bucket is an antique piece. He said, "That bucket right there, if you notice it, it don’t say KFC. It says Kentucky Fried Chicken. That bucket's probably forty years old."
Taylor plans on mounting the bucket atop a pole so it can be seen from further away.
Headrick is ok with that idea saying, "It's unusual but it makes really good landmarks when people come to our house. You can just say, ‘Come down to the giant you know, the giant KFC bucket and turn right.’"
Clearly Headrick has a good sense of humor about the odd monument. "Too often we need something to laugh about and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck," joked Headrick adding, "Maybe we'll get giant mashed potatoes next to it."
