Will Miss #29 - statues of the colonel
For reasons I've never been clear on, there are plastic or plaster statues of Colonel Saunders in front of nearly every KFC in Japan. During certain holidays, they put costumes on him (Santa, traditional Japanese garb). There's something both a little creepy and cool about this welcoming mannequin.
I'll miss the weirdness of seeing the Colonel immortalized in cheap materials and in high gloss paint.
