Colonel Sanders rises from the deep...

Three nights ago, the local news here in the Kansai region covered a peculiar story about a plastic statue of Colonel Sanders which was recently found by divers at the bottom of a river in Osaka after spending about 24 years down there, having been ripped-out of a KFC storefront and dumped off a bridge by jubilant Hanshin Tigers fans back in 1985.

Something like half an hour was devoted to the story, complete with interviews with witnesses to the original incident, passers-by looking at the statue, officials who came to have their photos taken next to it, and so on and so forth.

The next night, a rehash of the same story was on the news again.

(By the way, why is embedding youtube vids such a pain in the ass now?)
