This Should Scare Away Any Chicken-like Aliens

At least, that's the only reason why I can imagine this would be constructed.

Col. Harland Sanders is shedding his white suit jacket for a red cook's apron as the company he founded unveils a worldwide redesign of its KFC restaurants and one of the world's most recognizable icons.

The company unveiled a new brand logo Tuesday that includes bolder colors and a more well-defined visage of the late Kentucky Fried Chicken founder, who will keep his classic black bow tie, glasses and goatee.

As part of publicity for the new logo, KFC commissioned a giant, 87,000-square foot version of it that can be seen from space. The massive logo consists of 65,000 1-foot square painted tiles that were laid out in the Nevada desert over 24 days.
It can be seen from space.

I guess those astronauts at the ISS really are an untapped market share.

Elsewhere in that article, it's noted that there are 1700 Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants in China alone, and more than one store per day (on average) gets opened in the PRC.

That's some bullshit. If we're gonna export a fried chicken chain, it should be Popeye's, for true.
