Don't think, or finish reading this. Just go order Kentucky Fried Chicken Scented Candles rightnow because there are only 25 of them and they're going on sale at 10:30am today.
Got your candle? Good. Here's some background: Kentucky for Kentucky is an online store who's "mission is to engage and inform the world by promoting Kentucky people, places, and products. And to Kick Ass for the Commonwealth" [capitalization their's]. They commissioned local doer-of-arty-Kentucky-themed-things to create special scents like Ale 8, Fried Chicken and Kentucky Derby debauchery (Note: There are 25 of each type, not just 25 altogether). This holiday, give the gift of fried poultry with a nutritional value of zero. Because you're worth it.
UPDATE: The fried chicken candles sold out in less than one minute.
