Fried-Chicken Felony

When Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Harland Sanders died in 1980, he didn't exactly rest in peace. Just steps from Sanders' grave site in Louisville's Cave Hill Cemetery, the group produced a new headstone in 2008 with a seemingly innocent poem about how KFC is a "Kind Friend of Chickens." In reality, the poem was acrostic: the first letter of each line spelled out, in bright-red letters: "KFC Tortures Birds." The cemetery had the headstone removed.
