Colonel Sanders is Back!

24 years ago (ah, the same year I was born!) KFC's mascot Colonel Sanders from a nearby shop in Osaka was thrown into Dotonburi river. Earlier this year the upper half of the statue was found (didn't know that!). I just knew it when I came back from uni and turn on the TV this evening.

So what happened was that they 'repaired' the statue and gave it a lower body to fit the 'washed' look of the part that was found. And today, it was brought to a shrine for blessings XD

But the curse to Hanshin Tigers was lifted 6 years ago, right?
