Edward Snowden is famous for his insider knowledge of conspiratorial US government secrets, but there's one beguiling mystery that even the world's biggest grass can't uncover: KFC's patented blend of 11 herbs and spices.
Knowing Snowden, he won't stop until he cracks the case - and if that means gnawing on and posing with buckets of succulent KFC chicken, of his own accord and through no financial incentive whatsoever, then so be it.
It's been a strange year for KFC, in which the company has unexpectedly found itself being chewed over on the political stage. Way back in August, Donald Trump posed with a bucket of Kentucky's finest on Twitter - but his attempt to appeal to the fast food-inhaling everymen of America was ruined somewhat by the fact that he was:
A) Eating it on a private jet.
B) Awkwardly attacking it with a knife and fork.
But regardless, it seemed as if the fried chicken floggers would never recover from being co-opted by the weird-faced Republican President-Elect. But now that Snowden has attempted to wrestle the bucket back from Trump's miniature hands, KFC could once again become a divisive political talking point in 2017.
Or not. Probably not.
