Eat more chicken? Why on earth?


Chick-Fil-A is second only to KFC in fast food chicken sales in the U.S. which is very impressive.

Even more interesting to me is a statement from the owner:

“ Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and directing our attention to things more important than our business. If it took seven days to make a living with a restaurant, then we needed to be in some other line of work. Through the years, I have never wavered from that position." —S. Truett Cathy

I appreciate and respect Chick-Fil-A's practice of not opening on Sundays. I am always in favor of patronizing organizations like Chick-Fil-A, however...

CHICKEN? Come on now! No thanks on chicken only. Chick-Fil-A absolutely needs to add burgers to their menu!! They need a big 1/2 pound bacon double cheeseburger to gain my patronage. It's my observation that mostly women like Chick-Fil-A. That's because of their dainty chicken sandwiches. Put some juicy red-meat on a sesame seed bun (slathered with mayo and ketchup) and you'll get some men in to that place.
Until some cow meat is sizzling on their grills, I'm sticking to places that serve man food and leaving Chick-Fil-A for women and children (not saying there's anything wrong with that).

One of our boys who shall remain nameless has never had any of the typical childhood fears (e.g., monsters in the closet) but for years had a dread fear of the Chick Fil A cow, whom he called "Babe" (is that its name?) No idea why. Only recently did he drop this line from his bedtime prayers "Dear Jesus - please don't let me have any bad dreams about Babe the cow." I won't be showing him your post picture. :-)

Dissin' the official supper-provider of the PCA headquarters? Say it ain't so. But ah spect, it's just like a yankee Eyetalyun to cut the fool in an ugly and picayunish way when it come to the deelicious jewel of Hot'lanna.

It's a chicken restaurant, Reepicheep, a CHICKEN restaurant. Sheesh!

Also, real men don't put "mayo" on their hamburgers.

Jim-

Burger King is a burger restaurant with chicken sandwiches (same with Wendy's and McD's).

Real men drink Mayo...

We did eat a lot of chicken. The beef in Moldova is like eating…. Come to think of eat, I don’t think I have ever eaten Russian beef? One time I made the mistake of asking my host, “What is this meat?” When he commented, “Organ” that’s the last time I ask. So bring the Chick-Fil-A to Kishinev!
