Hintonburger KFC bucket sign now available on Kijiji

The iconic KFC bucket sign, the herald of the Dirty Bird that used to perch high above Hintonburger (in Hintonburg), is now up for sale on Kijiji. "Best offer takes it."

The sign was taken down over the weekend.  We've blogged about this former KFC location before.  You should read "The unmarked graves of Ottawa's other KFC's" and "Public wake for the Hintonburg KFC".

Update: Here's a little bit about why the sign was taken down.

    Any reason given for doing this? Other than preventing confusion (people sometimes walk into Hintonburger and walk out again when they realize it's not a KFC)

  2. I don't think it will fit on my desk...

  3. Talked to the owners about this. They were informed by legal council for "a certain fast food chain" who they don't want any more trouble with that it had to come down. Copyright protection, essentially.
