Giant KFC bucket found in woman's front yard

It's known for being "finger lickin" good. But when a Georgia woman found a 7-foot tall Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in her front yard, she didn't know what to think.
"I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside," Aleena Headrick told Augusta TV station WAGT.
The bucket was indeed really there. It showed up last Thursday afternoon and Headrick has no idea why.
But she and her family are embracing the odd find. It's already become a popular local landmark, with people stopping by to take pictures with it.
"Too often we just need something to laugh about and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck," Headrick joked.
Her landlord, Freddie Taylor, collects old signs and told WAGT the bucket is quite a find.
He thinks it's at least 30 or 40 years old because of the font and graphics.
Taylor plans to mount the giant bucket on a pole so it will be permanently displayed for all to see.
"It's unusual but it makes really landmarks when people come to our house," Headrick told WAGT. "We can just say, 'Come down to the giant KFC bucket and turn right.'"
