A week after Hobby Lobby was caught smuggling precious artifacts out of Iraq, KFC has defaced a precious material, too … but at least did it legally.
The restaurant chain has launched a store called KFC Limited, and among the items for sale is a meteorite that a sculptor carved to look like a chicken sandwich. They even branded it!
The cost? $20,000. Here’s how the site describes it.
This one-of-a-kind meteorite is a real, space-made meteorite from space. Sculpted by the harsh elements that exist in the vastness of space (and then later by three artists named Haley, Scott, and Mike), this Zinger chicken sandwich-shaped meteorite has all the Zinger chicken sandwich-shaped details you’ve come to expect from the Zinger chicken sandwich. Don’t miss your chance to own this very significant and very heavy piece of chicken sandwich space travel history.
Why would you ever deface a meteorite to look like KFC? That’s an unanswerable question, much like why one would ever eat KFC. But if you for some reason love defaced space rocks and KFC, and you have $20,000 to spare, you can own your own piece of outer space.
