I'm having trouble keeping track of who's playing Colonel Sanders these days in the Kentucky Fried Chicken commercials.
In less than a year, there have been three different comedians jumping into the Colonel's white suit and doing their best to imitate a Kentucky drawl.
First it was Darrell Hammond, from . His Colonel was a little creepy for my taste. Saturday Night Live
Next up was Norm MacDonald, another alum. He wasn't creepy, but he never got beyond being Norm MacDonald if you ask me. SNL
Now, Jim Gaffigan's jumping into the frying pan.
The folks at KFC say that according to their polls, about 20% of people surveyed say they hate the new Colonels. Even the new one. And that's okay.
Way back in May, the company's CEO said, "They're actually talking about KFC, and you can market to love and hate — you cannot market to indifference."
He could be on to something there...

Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos had just scored a touchdown to make the score of the Super Bowl 22 to 10 with only a few minutes left.
The Broncos decided to go for a two-point conversion to put them up by two full scores, meaning the Carolina Panthers would need a couple of miracles just to tie the game.
They line-up, Peyton tosses a perfect pass, boom! Two points! The Broncos are up by 14!
The CBS cameras switch to catch the action upstairs in the luxury box occupied by Peyton's family.
Everyone is super excited.
All but one guy. Peyton's little brother Eli - the QB for the New York Giants, who already has two Super Bowl rings of his own.
The look on Eli's face.. Well, no one's quite sure what it is, but it's still causing a lot of buzz on social media.
So far, this is the best tweet about it, if you ask me.
Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding communities got hammered this time last year with some record snowfalls.
This year hasn't been too bad, but the past week has seen a couple of decent storms.
This footage was taken at the end of last week, showing a Bostonian helping to push a stuck motorist back into traffic on a slippery street.
The helper's attire might seem a bit bizarre - shorts and sneakers in a snowstorm - but it's Boston.
Bostonians are a hardy breed.
Or, they don't put a lot of thought into their winter attire.
Our traffic tracker found some slick roads in the Beacon Hill area in Boston, including one car that was really stuck. What happens next is about as Boston as it gets.

One of my favorite late night segments is "Carpool Karaoke" on with James Corden. The Late Late Show
James has an amazing talent, and a decent set of pipes.
And he's able to sing along with and interview guests while navigating the streets of Los Angeles.
After the Super Bowl, he had Elton John in the passenger seat.
An amazing bit of entertainment.
Check out the extended version...
Okay, I know, the football season is officially over.
But there's always time for Bad Lip Reading.
And the BLR people released Part 2 of the NFL Bad Lip Reading serie at the end of last week, just before the Super Bowl.
But why waste it before the Big Game, when you can savor it a couple of days afterwards, right?
The Disney folks used the Super Bowl to drop their first trailer for live action version of The Jungle Book.
Money well-spent, if you ask me.
In a day that subjected us to sheep singing Queen songs and animated colons, The Jungle Book trailer was a breath of fresh air.
And it looks amazing.
Another one of those I've got to put on my must-see-in-a-theater list.
How about you?
According to estimates, Americans consumed over 1.3 billion chicken wings yesterday as a Super Bowl snack.
That works out to four chicken wings for every man, woman and child in the United States.
Not to mention the barbecue sauces, the blue cheese dressing, the hot sauces and more that come with the wings.
That's a huge number of chicken wings.
And that's not even counting the other goodies.
Have you taken your Monday morning inventory of everything you managed to wolf down yesterday?
While you do that, take a look at Rob Gronkowski, tight end for the New England Patriots, who was home watching the game like the rest of us yesterday, tackle some hot wings in a promotional video of some sort. It's just fun to watch.
This is so much fun.
Listen to these German announcers describing Von Miller's strip sack of Cam Newton that led to Super Bowl 50's first touchdown yesterday.
So much more entertaining and enthusiastic than the CBS broadcast team of Jim Nance and Phil Simms.
And even with the language barrier, enough English slips in so it's easier to follow than anything Shannon Sharpe has ever had to say.
Check it out. And be sure to check the channel listings for the German channel next year.
That's what I'm doing...

Okay, I get it.
The Prius isn't what it used to be.
It's got some power, it's spacious, it looks good, goes a long way on a tank of gas.
But to set it up as a getaway car for a set of bank robbers?
I'm sorry, I'm calling this Super Bowl commercial a fail.
What do you think?
A guy showed up at a Charlotte Hornets basketball game last week wearing a Denver Broncos jersey.
Loud, proud and orange, wearing # 87. That's Eric Decker's number, a tight end for the Broncos.
Charlotte is also the home town for the Carolina Panthers, Denver's opponents in the Super Bowl.
(In case you missed it, Denver won yesterday, 24 - 10.)
But, this Broncos fan learned the hard way that you do not mess with the Hornet mascot in his home nest.
Watch what happens. It's pretty funny - even if it was staged.
