KFC Spotted In Corner Of 'The Hay Wain'
ART experts have uncovered a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in the corner of Constable’s ‘The Hay Wain’, prompting claims that it could be evidence of time travel.
Experts at the National Gallery in London were giving the painting its annual wipe when a big bit came off revealing what is clearly the sign for a KFC restaurant in the distance.
Julian Cook, the gallery’s head of Constable, said: “We think he may have included the KFC in an effort to make the scene as realistic as possible but then painted over it, partly for aesthetic reasons and partly because it should never have been granted planning permission in the first place.
“Anyway it also clearly proves that time travel is real.”
Physicist Martin Bishop explained: “Kentucky Fried Chicken is a restaurant chain founded in 1952 by Colonel Harland Sanders while ‘The Hay Wain’ is a big painting made in 1821.
“If you subtract one from the other – or vice versa – it confirms that Colonel Sanders must have perfected both chicken frying and time travel, gone back to the 19th Century and set up a chain of outlets across rural England in order to give his fledgling company an extra 130 years of growth.
“I suspect that if we look at the parish records for the Flatford Mill area in Suffolk we will find letters from a lot of retired people claiming the new chicken restaurant will be detrimental to the character of the area as well as attracting filthy tinkers and such like.
“There should also be a letter of support from the local Tory MP who will also no doubt have written to the KFC franchise holder wishing them all the best in their new venture.”
Bishop added: “I would add that this also confirms my theory that the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices is actually from the future.”
