It's true - even corporations aren't immune to conspiracy theories. Here's one I stumbled across that I hadn't heard before:

Kentucky Fried Chicken
It is sometimes claimed that the franchise is owned by the Ku Klux Klan, and the chicken is laced with a drug that makes only black men impotent. In actuality KFC is owned by Yum! Brands, Inc., a publicly traded Fortune 500 company.


Ya gotta wonder where these ideas start. Sounds like a guy treated his wife to some KFC before going home - and when things didn't go so well in the bedroom, he used THIS as his defense!

What are some others you've heard?

I think it had started as a joke.

Imagine a person stating "Proud to be a member of the KKK. Kolonel Klucks' Klan, that is..."

Never heard the second part though.

I'd guess its just another 'the-white-man-keep'n-the-brothers-down' thing.

This has to be my favorite conspiracy theory.
I'm not sure whether to believe it's a hoax or not, but considering the number of mind-bogglingly insane things people really do believe in, I'm leaning towards 'yes'.

*Smacks forehead*

That's right brotha man, the crackers and yellow devils don't want you to be able to use one of these here computers. I have grave concerns about the future of mankind, folks.

True story. My friend's father had a carburetor on his engine that looked like a spider, and was running about a hundred miles to the gallon. Despite all his family and friends warning him not to take it into the dealer, he did it anyways. Needless to say, the spider carb disappeared and his rig was returned with a stock GM carb on it. Sixteen miles to the gallon.

Are the car companies in cahoots with the oil companies? Don't know, but I'd be pissed if someone yanked my carb and replaced it with crap.
