"11 Herbs & Spices", the tweet reads, paying homage to KFC's long-time market slogan of their chicken being made with a secret recipe with "11 spices and herbs".

Fried-chicken chain KFC may be a division of a massive global fast-food company, Yum Brands, but it has developed a reputation for viral, internet-savvy promotions.

It is seen as a clever nod to its famous 11 herbs and spices recipe.

It starts with the chicken giant's list of what, at first glance, seems to be 11 oddly specific accounts for the restaurant to follow on Twitter.

2 local school buses involved in separate crashes
This year's theme, "Stop on Red", reminds motorists and students about the dangers that exist outside of school buses. This week, school districts throughout the country are observing school bus safety week.

Those would be the five Spice Girls - Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton - and five other men called Herb.

The six Herbs don't appear to have anything in common - one is an LA City Council President, another plays for an American football team and one more is a trumpeter.

One fan wrote: "The @kfc social media manager planted a low-key genius bomb and it just went off".

How do they make it so delicious?
