See the Best & Worst Grammy Fashion of All Time

Twitter has some finger lickin' good jokes after the country singer is named as the new face of the fast food chain.

The future is female -- at least for KFC, which just named Reba McEntire as its first female Colonel Sanders.

"I'm Colonel Sanders, the same as always, absolutely nothing's changed," she sings in her first ad. "Please ignore any likeness to famous country singers. I'm definitely not a woman."

"With Reba's southern roots and entrepreneurial spirit, she truly embodies the values of the Colonel and the crowd-pleasing flavor of our Smoky Mountain BBQ," said the brand's Chief Marketing Officer Andrea Zahumensky. "The pairing of a universally loved music legend like Reba with a universally appealing flavor like Smoky Mountain BBQ makes what I like to call 'Smoky Mountain Magic.'"

The new Colonel started trending on Twitter on Friday morning, after news broke that Reba would be following in the all-male footsteps of Rob Lowe and Darrell Hammond.

Here are some of the funniest reactions to the announcement:
