Let's hope Popeyes is covered

The theme of today is we live in a crazy world.

Chicken recipes are guarded as if they were national security concerns. Here's what stands between you and the KFC chicken recipe:

The recipe has been stashed at the company headquarters for decades, and for more than 20 years has been tucked away in a filing cabinet equipped with two combination locks. To reach the cabinet, the keepers of the recipe would first open up a vault and unlock three locks on a door that stood in front of the cabinet.

So important is the 68-year-old concoction that coats the chain's Original Recipe chicken that only two company executives at any time have access to it. The company refuses to release their names or titles, and it uses multiple suppliers who produce and blend the ingredients but know only a part of the entire contents.

And when transferring it to a new location:

The recipe that launched the chicken chain was placed in a lock box that was handcuffed to security expert Bo Dietl, who climbed aboard an armored car that whisked away with an escort from off-duty police officers.

Clearly, the moral of the story is that you should really, really enjoy your chicken next time you visit KFC.
