WAYNESBORO, Georgia (WAGT) – Aleena Headrick was taken aback when she found a seven-foot tall KFC bucket in the front yard of her Waynesboro, Georgia home.
“I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside,” she recalls.
Headrick says it appeared Thursday afternoon.
The bucket has already become a popular landmark. Headrick says people have been stopping to take pictures with it.
Freddie Taylor is Headrick’s landlord, and he says he is the owner.
He collects signs, and he says the bucket is quite a find, “That bucket right there, if you notice it, it doesn’t say KFC. It says Kentucky Fried Chicken. That bucket’s probably 40 years old.”
Taylor plans to have it mounted on a pole so it will be permanently displayed for all to see. Headrick isn’t mad.
She says it will make her house hard to miss, “It’s unusual but it makes really landmarks to our house. We can just say, “come down to the giant KFC bucket and turn right.”
