Whoever is running Kentucky Fried Chicken's social media has a good sense of humor. Over the weekend, a Twitter user noticed that KFC's account follows the five Spice Girls and six men named Herb, ranging from the NFL's Herb Waters to musician Herb Alpert.
Get it yet? That means that KFC follows 11 Herbs and spices, which is part of the famous secret recipe KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders claims he used for his fried chicken. According to a rep for the company, they've been following those 11 accounts for about a month.
Naturally, Twitter found this hilarious, here are some of the reactions:
