It would be scary if she thought KFC was something worthy to follow because of its food. But if you read what the little girl wrote I don't see anything wrong with it.

Basically she says Colonel Sanders is her role model because he started his own business and she wants to start her own business. What's wrong with that. She is a little girl that one day wants to start her own business she is not making a comment or supporting KFC's food or the way that YUM! brands now conducts their business.

Not a cult, Poutine, but a culture.
It's still a status symbol for many Chinese to be seen eating in 'Western' restaurants, with their gaudy interiors and bright lights and cute little uniforms. It's so different from anything Chinese, it's seen as exotic. Of course to any Westerner there is nothing remotely exotic about KFC, quite the opposite in fact, but that's just 'culture gap' for you.

And I would take ANYTHING you read on thechive.com with a sachet of salt. It's as reliable as the 'news stories' on theonion.com i.e. not at all. Funny, but false.

Oh, and IF this story about the little girl and her Colonel Sanders icon WERE real, then what has it got to do with China, as she's American (or at least ABC). Surely it's a reflection on American kids rather than Chinese?

@Ludo

Never the less how can you be sure she is American?

If you start questioning the internetz ... it all falls apart buddy! Cool

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
