I've been trying to start and spread this one (maybe you all can help me):

"Coronel(sp) Sanders was a vegetarian. At the age of 63 his wife died
from heart disease brought on by a diet of the Coronel's own Kentucy Fried
Chicken. Shaken by the death of his wife and with a renewed interest in
his own longevity the Coronel gave up eating all meat and began to
campaign for a better, non-meat based diet for Americans. Unfortunately
by this point he had sold controlling interest in K.F.C. and had signed
papers during the sale that forbade him from doing anything that could be
destructive to the interests of the current ownership of his Fried Chicken
franchise. He died knowing that thousands of lives would be cut short
because of his ignorance. And he died, a born again vegetarian."
