Today, we say goodbye to the KFC's Cheetos Sandwich mural on 2nd Avenue and 14th Street

[Photo from June 28]

You likely have taken in that Chester Cheetah-Col. Sanders mural on Second Avenue at 14th Street. (Takes a minute.)

The mural arrived in late June to coincide with KFC's Cheetos Sandwich, the limited-time-only, colon-friendly menu item. The East Village location of KFC was picked to launch the sammy with a special menu featuring Cheetos hot wings, Cheetos-loaded fries and Cheetos mac and cheese. (Sorry — forgot to cover this in late June!)

Anyway, given the limited-time-offer nature of the KFC's Cheetos Sandwich, the mural was only going to be here for a short period of time.

And that time has come... a reader shared this photo...

Wow. Dissing the colonel. What's next an impossible mural?

The “Sofa Kingdom” mural on Suffolk just north of Stanton is my vote for the ugliest. Inexplicably, it has remained unchanged and ungraffitied for YEARS!? Where is the street justice? Where are the taggers? Someone, please, DO SOMETHING!
