Pregnant? Wanna make $11-grand? KFC is looking pay that to someone who has a baby on September 9th. Of course, there are conditions. For one, the baby must be named Harland. For another, the money is supposed to go into a college fund for the baby.
So why are they doing this? The baby naming promo is in honor of KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders’ 128th birthday. He was born on September 9th and the company wants to help move the name Harland up on the list of the most popular baby names, while honoring their founder. As for the $11-grand they’ll be donating to new baby Harland, that amount was derived from KFC’s 11 herbs and spices, naturally.
Willing to take a chance on your newborn’s name? The baby’s first name must be Harland and it must be born on September 9th in the U.S. Beginning that day, parents can submit proof of baby’s birth via birth certificate or other official record and their contact info to www.kfc.com/babyharland. The site will be live for 30 days, “giving parents time to adjust to the newest addition to their family.”
Here's what I want you to do: the next time you are out with a group of friends, bring this up. Who is willing to do it? I think I'd be willing to do it - what I would do is name the kid "Harland" then give him/her a middle name and call him/her by that name.
