In Japan, Colonel Sanders is an iconic part of pop culture. There are Kentucky Fried Chickens across the country. In front of each shop, there's a glasses-wearing Colonel Sanders statue. And boy, can they ever look scary. Don't believe me?

Above is the Colonel from the Akihabara KFC. When it recently snowed in the geek district, the shop removed the statue's glasses and covered him with a black blanket. The result is truly horrific, with the portly Southerner looking sweaty and like he's part of some bizarro religious cult.
