"Breaking News: David Alan Grier has been cast as the first African American Colonel Sanders in the new KFC ad campaign. #KFC"
"There is no new Colonel Sanders."
Moral of the story, any guy who describes himself as a "gentleman of leisure, raconteur, liar, con man, teller of tall tales" shouldn't be taken too seriously.
