THE BUFFY CHICKEN

A beacon of breasts and thighs looming high above Quinn's parents restaurant, The Buffy, in Columbus, Indiana. He was a distinct feature of the Hoosier skyline. Weighing 3 tons, this feathered icon, decked out in top hat for all to see, met his match when a tornado blew him off the roof of The Buffy onto a customers brand new car! Due to his immense size, weight and shipping costs, it took three years to find the Chicken a new home. He now resides in Tenesee as a symbol for big breasted broasted chicken!
