That’s not Jeff Sessions with a goatee?


#3

She’s all right, but it’s still a goddam commercial.


#4

Next she’'ll be shilling Fast Food.


#5

But wait, even though Reba just won a Grammy for her new gospel album, she is a leftist shill promoting the destruction of the human race with transgenderism and cultural Marxism.

It’s like conservatives found out about Poe’s Law and said “Hold my Beer”


#6

Those glasses are great, though. Anyone know who makes those?


#7

Rethinking my tolerance of gender fluidity.


#8

Aw no! There’s now corporate genderfuckery?!


#9

If there’s a profit in exploiting it, they’ll find a way.

The real Harland Sanders was a kid from Indiana who didn’t even move to Kentucky until he was in his 30s and never served in the military (“Kentucky Colonel” is a ceremonial title) so when you get right down to it the popular image of the Colonel was mostly a commercial/marketing construct from the beginning.

I didn’t really care one way or the other until I read that tweet from Mark Dice. Now I’m thinking, I could really go for some chicken.


#13

I flew into Kentucky on a trip to Indiana and in the airport was a (plexi)glass-enclosed 2 ft statue of the Kentucky Colonel. I like what they did here, but I still can’t eat it.


#14

Woah… next you’ll be saying the Santa Clause we all know and love was the marketing construct of a soft drink company.

Please, let us have our delusions.

edit: something about Reba , stirs my grits in a good way.


#15

Uh-oh. They’re on to us…


#16

Think of the possibilities if, instead of Hillary Clinton, they got Reba in the Sanders getup to read aloud from Fire & Fury at the Grammys.

And then Yngwie Malmsteen could come in & say “you’ve unleashed the fucking fury”

Really there is no other way to get thru that book.


#17

So, uh am I like the only one thinking “why can’t the colonel just be a woman?” A bearded lady? uh, ok. But couldn’t they do something like this andro-colonel passes the torch to, uh, their younger daughter who is Reba not in drag but still in colonel regalia? It is nicely tongue in cheek, so that is a positive. Nice way to poke chic filet in the kisser. Maybe that Burger King network neutrality $26 whopper stunt is a smart move.

ill take 1 MacEntire, hold the ozone


#20

Are you referring to vulvas? There’s a grown up word you can use Gary.

Somehow I don’t think you mean chartered accountants.
