There’s been a lot of talk over the last several months about Popeye’s famous chicken sandwich. According to legend, this unparalleled achievement in American sandwich-making is the most deliciously scrumptious fried poultry goodness that any man, woman, or child can place in his or her mouth.

The mouthwatering tales of proud Popeye’s patrons across the country who actually managed to acquire one of the very few, limited-edition, individually-numbered sandwiches are powerful enough to corrupt even the Godliest vegans. 

But has it all been a hoax? Does the ‘Keyser Soze’ of sandwiches actually exist? 

Many a hungry explorer has gone forth into the unknown drive-thrus of America in search of the answer. Some returned to their homeland war-weary, empty-handed, and empty stomached. They were the fortunate ones. Several brave sandwich seekers simply vanished, never to be heard from again.

So, does the Popeye’s chicken sandwich actually exist? To paraphrase Kevin Costner in the epic masterpiece “Waterworld,” Popeye’s chicken sandwich is not a myth! I’ve seen it!

Tuesday afternoon on the Hammer and Nigel show, Lance, the heroic district manager of Popeye’s Chicken, entered the WIBC studios. In his hand was a bag containing multiple chicken sandwiches.

Behold this magical moment in chicken sandwich history:

God bless you, Popeye’s chicken. Also, thanks for being open on Sundays.
