So, this is what the gentlemen in the digital camo are fighting for? Sounds like Guiteau Monday to me. On a somewhat related note, Papa John's is threatening similar measures. In the case of Applebee's and Papa John's, shitty fast casual riblets and shitty pizza is no great loss. Recently, however, Aziz Ansari pointed out that the problem w/ the Chick-fil-A vs gays situation is that Chick-fil-A is very tasty - as he observed, if it were Long John Silver's nobody would care.
More generally, it's interesting to the Cod that 2012 has been a year where fast food has become politicized, but in terms of gay marriage and health care, rather than on its own, rather dubious, terms.
So this whole Chick-fil-A/Gay thing is really starting to eat my brain, a la Gatesgate '09. On the one hand, folks who don't get that free speech is pointless if that speech does not have consequences, on the other folks whose commitment to civil rights begins and ends w/ not eating chicken sandwiches. But, there is a man in Greenville, SC who is living Biblically, specifically Ezekiel 22:30, And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it..."
In this case, the gap was a Chick-fil-A drivethrough, and the man was Jeffrey Martell:
So, tasty, albeit homophobic fast food chain Chick-fil-a is sweating a tiny VT outfit about a trademark. The ish? The fried chicken sandwich folks fear that folks will confuse the eatmorekale.com brand with their Eat Mor Chikin campaign. For your convenience, Chick-fil-a's flagship product at left, and kale at right. So, Chick-fil-a customers -- ask yourself: how stupid does Chick-fil-a think you are? In any case, sign the petition and tell the fast food behemoth to back up.
And Guiteau Monday rolls right along, with the GOP Frontrunner(!)* donning a white robe(!)** and singing a parody of John Lennon's "Imagine" that simultaneously pisses on the laudable yet mawkish sentiment of that song, and in its delivery suggests Stepin' Fetchit doing a Paul Robeson impression.
*The GOP is so desperate not to have a Black president that they will stop at nothing, including electing another Black president?
**Historically, not a popular look among African Americans.
So, KFC has this thing called the Famous Bowl, which is basically elective gavage for people, as far as the Cod can tell. And now they added bacon:
Short of The Colonel getting on the roof with a Barrett M107, hard to imagine a more antisocial menu offering. With the razors, it took Gilette close to a decade for them to make a razor with as many blades as the fake razor in an early Onion. Real fast food has caught up to 30 Rock's Cheesy Blasters in less than half the time.
