Would you name your baby after your favorite fast food? KFC is offering $11,000 to the parents of the first child to be born on September 9 and named "Harland." (Harland was the late Colonel Sanders' first name and he was also born on September 9.) The amount of $11,000 is in honor of the the fried chicken's 11 famous herbs and spices, and is meant to go toward the child's college tuition. When a reporter from The Atlantic asked whether the promotion was real, KFC answered, "as real as a crying newborn baby."
