  • Ok... but if the incorrect date is only circulating through English sources here in the west... wouldn’t people who live in Japan and are fans of the tigers know when the statue was actually thrown into the river, and therefore never believe the myth in the first place? So why is the cure of colonel sanders so popular with the fans?
