“I fetched a pail of water and ate a KFC family meal. Two things I can cross off my bucket list”

A “bucket list” is a list of things to do before one dies “("kicks the bucket"). The list usually doesn’t involve a bucket (such as a bucket of KFC chicken), but there have been several jokes.

“Is there dual irony that KFC is on my ‘bucket list’?” was posted on Twitter on April 24, 2009. “Eating KFC in KY. check that off the bucket list. lol” was posted on Twitter on March 15, 2010.

“I fetched a pail of water and ate a whole KFC family meal to myself. So that’s two things I can cross off my bucket list” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on February 20, 2018.


Wiktionary: bucket list
Etymology
From kick the bucket (“to die”) + list, hence a “list of things to do before you die”. The term was coined by American and British screenwriter Justin Zackham in his screenplay for the 2007 film The Bucket List. Zackham had created his own list called “Justin’s List of Things to Do Before I Kick the Bucket” which he then shortened to “Justin’s Bucket List”. The first item on his list was to have a screenplay produced at a major Hollywood studio. After a time, it occurred to him that the notion of a “bucket list” could itself be fodder for a film, so he wrote a screenplay about two dying men racing to complete their own bucket lists with the time they had left. Articles about the movie are the earliest known uses.
