I really wish I was making this one up.
KFC ran a contest where they’d pay someone $11,000 if they named their baby Harland, which was Colonel Sanders’ real name. The baby had to be born on September 9th, which was Sanders’ birthday.
Someone actually did it, and KFC paid!
The Lexington Herald Leader writes, “Sept. 9 would have been the 128th birthday for Sanders, KFC’s iconic founder. The $11,000 KFC offered was a nod to the famous 11 herbs and spices used in its fried chicken.
Kentucky-based KFC introduced the winner, Harland “Harley” Rose. She was born Sept. 9 at 8 pounds, 1 ounce to parents Anna Pilson and Decker Platt, of Southern Pines, N.C.,, according to KFC.”
