Kentucky's Fried Chicken fondly known as KFC is the most joyful thing for chicken lovers across the world. Whether it is their fried chicken or grilled or roasted one, fans love and enjoy their dish above anything. There was also much attempt to decode their secret 11 herbs and spices recipe but not much have been accomplished. Recently, a Twitter user noticed that KFC follows only 11 users on the micro-blogging site and it became the biggest pun of the social media.
Mike Edgette in South Dakota, US found that KFC follows five Spice girls and six men named Herb on the micro-blogging site. This led Twitter to laud the brilliant social networking team of KFC and the company then decided to reward the man behind this discovery. Edgette shared a unique painting which KFC gifted him. The frame has Edgette riding on Colonel Harland David Sanders, the founder of KFC's back. And to his pleasure, he also has KFC fried leg in his hand. Doesn't it remind you of Vikram and Betaal?

Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.
11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.
On October 20, Edgette shared a post on Twitter which got over 7 lakh likes. After this, Colonel endorsed his social media skills on LinkedIn and then presented a personalised gift to him. Sharing images of the gift, he wrote on Twitter, ''Dreams DO come true. #GiddyUpColonel Thanks @kfc''.
After the buzz, some also pointed that he many be a guerilla campaigner for the American fast food giant but Edgette tackled them with a good response. He said that he is just a guy who spends too much time on Twitter.
