CIDU Bound and Gagged, Dana Summers 15 Comments Sent in by Dan Sachs, who asks “Are these supposed to be KFC buckets?”; and by Targuman, who brings up that the brims and stripes raise issues for the buckets view.

KFC buckets was where my head went too, but obviously the colors make no sense and neither do the rims. The stripes evoke KFC, though.
Sometimes the colorist isn’t on board with the joke.
It’s bucket kicking good?
If there is such a thing as a chicken cemetery, is there a place where they bury roosters?
From the Why Evolution Is True blog, today’s Reader Wildlife Photos feature, this was captioned Chicken Hawk:
I’m wondering if those are lids instead of brims. But yeah, oddly drawn.
On the GoComics site someone suggested it might have been a “rabbit cemetery” with the top hats magicians might have pulled them out of… That makes a bit more sense graphically.
Yes, I was thinking of the classic “pulling a chicken out of a hat” magic trick myself!
But those hats are always black top hats. I’ve never seen a top hat with colored strips on it, unless it was worn by a circus clown.
…and aren’t doves normally the bird of choice for magicians’?
Stan, if that was in response to my post, I was being entirely tongue-in-cheek. This is indeed a CIDU for me.
Though a magician who said “I will pull a chicken out of my hat” and pulled out an actual bucket of KFC would get a BIG hand from me for the humor!
As God is my witness, I thought chickens could fly.
Or as Colonel Sanders misheard it, “As God is my witness, I thought chickens could fry.”
FBS: No need for a rooster cemetery. They are the main ingredient in coq au vin.
“Stan, if that was in response to my post…”
Relax. It was also mentioned in the title of this post. But I agree, I’d also give a round of applause to that magician you referenced, especially if he shared it around.
Monty Python had a sketch about an animal sanctuary that sheltered animals a little too late: the staff tossed feed to hams, chicken parts, etc.
