  • At the bar of a Legal Seafood, in Cambridge, MA, I saw a late 20s American arguing with a few Asian college students. The American's voice was raised.

    "What? WHAT?!? Sorry to disapoint you fellas but KFC is American. Seriously. The colonel is a good ol' boy."

    There was hushed dissent that I couldn't make out and went on for some time, until they were cut off by the American.

    "There's 11 herbs and spices and your people might be responsible for one. Either way America had the idea to put it on deep fried chicken."

    And he shook his head as he turned away towards his beer on the raised table by the window. He showed his adversaries the back of his head -- the period on the conversation.
