This thing exists and you, your aesthetic sensibility and your stomach should feel pretty okay about it: Meet the KFC chicken "wang" bone necklace.

It's the brain child of Kentucky jewelry-maker Meg C and Kentucky for Kentucky, the folks who brought you Kentucky Fried Chicken scented candles.

The "beautiful handcrafted gold necklaces made with real bones from a Kentucky Fried Chicken 8-piece chicken dinner." Meg and her boyfriend ate them. You can legitimately wear someone else's dinner dipped in gold around your neck. 2014, people. 2014.

Some things you gotta know: A limited run of 20 Gold Kentucky Fried Chicken Wang Bone Necklaces go on sale Friday, June 27 at 10:00am. A small 14kt gold-plated chicken wang necklace is $130. The large is $160.

The joy it will bring you and the respect it will command are priceless.

There's also a video. You should watch it.
