…which, for an older guy, was pretty awesome, especially when you consider the fact that TLC was mostly (and admittedly) filled with immature dick-and-fart jokes.

Still, back in the day, Frank was an avid supporter of our little monthly publication.

Back then, we used to do this thing called Project: Tastes Like Chicken Abroad, where we encouraged fans to take a photo of themselves holding an issue somewhere exotic (meaning: anywhere that wasn’t Columbus, Ohio).

Frank was one of the first people to send in a photograph. In the summer of 2000, Frank submitted this photo of him holding a copy of Volume 2, Issue 9 of Chickenhead in Cape Cod. (NOTE: During our first two years of publication we were known as Chickenhead, not Tastes Like Chicken.)

Frank Muri tastes like chicken.

Last night, Frank passed away.

In addition to being a supporter of TLC, Frank was one hell of a nice guy.

I actually had the opportunity to meet and hang out with him a few years ago. First and foremost, I remember Frank being an exceptionally kind man, but he was also quick with a funny story or joke, he laughed easily, and he made those around him laugh as well.

He will be missed.

We couldn’t have asked for a better fan,
