So you’re the proud new parent of a food baby. OK, it’s not a real baby, but shouldn’t you be able to experience the same joys as a real parent? KFC seems to think so.

On Thursday, the KFC Canada revealed that it would be releasing the revolutionary “Bucket Björn,” just in the nick of time for Father’s Day. Coming complete with shoulder and hip straps, as well as a sauce pocket and napkin dispenser, this bucket holder helps reduce the distance between bucket and mouth, all while acting as a crumb-saver to prevent nast grease stains.

The bucket front-pack is available June 14th, beginning at 5 p.m. EST, for those of you who have a street address in Canada and are so inclined. It will cost CA$50 ($38).

"Whether you're sitting on the dock, playing a round of golf, or taking in a ballgame this weekend, the KFC Bucket Björn keeps fathers close to their bucket wherever they go," said the company in a press release.

There seems to be no better way to revel in the unctuous smell of fried chicken than to strap it to your chest and walk down the street. You might get some strange looks (and you might stain your shirt), but you’ll have easy access to your bucket. All it needs is a side compartment to store the mashed potatoes and gravy.

KFC’s lawyers would naturally like to remind you that its Bucket Björn is made for carrying buckets of fried chicken only—not real human babies. That would be downright irresponsible.
