    Slogan: 'It's Finger Lickin' Good!'
    Lets keep it real, their meat is nasty...
    They dropped the Finger Lickin' Good slogan after more than 50 years, calling it too 'food centric.'
    They traded out their slogan for 'Nobody does chicken like KFC' and (originally) 'So good.'
    It's shorthand for racist stereotypes surrounding black Americans and chicken.

    It popularized chicken in fast-food, challenging the hamburger's established stranglehold over the industry.
    Colonel Sanders used to make unannounced visits to franchises and, if the food disappointed him, would denounce it as 'God-damned slop' (that eventually got him sued).

    Jason Alexander used to promote their popcorn chicken in commercials.
