UNITED NATIONS -- Red-faced United Nations officials on Monday admitted to a major security lapse after a UN guard helped Kentucky Fried Chicken's "Colonel Sanders" gain access to restricted areas.Read the rest here
The guard escorted the white-suited intruder past security barriers, where he got a handshake from the UN General Assembly president, Dr. Ali A. Treki of Libya.
The faux fast food chain founder also posed for a picture beneath the assembly's giant UN logo, which overlooks the spot where world leaders address their international counterparts.
"It should not have happened -- that I will stress, and very strongly," said Michele Montas, spokeswoman for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
"There was some lapse in security and the individual in question . . . was, on the initiative of one security guard, taken . . . into the UN."
The real Harland "Colonel" Sanders typically wore a white suit and string bow tie, but he has been dead since 1980.
The incident last Thursday apparently was part of a publicity stunt by the fast food chain, which is seeking to promote its grilled alternative to its signature fried chicken. It had dispatched the Sanders look-alike, identified by KFC as Robert Thompson, and also wrote to Mr. Ban.
UN TV crews eventually raised the alarm after being stunned when the impersonator approached cameras set up for diplomats, and began making claims about the extent of the "Grilled Nation." At that point, additional security guards arrived and escorted him from the building.
The UN is easily the dumbest, most useless political entity in in the world today... I would love to see the video of these idiots being humiliated!
