quatchi: Sgt Otter: IrateShadow: alizeran: I appreciate how they have no idea how the internet works.

...the chicken sandwich company appears to have made fake Facebook accounts to defend its honor on the social network...

They're also lying to minimize the reason Jim Henson Productions is no longer associating with them:

[i.imgur.com image 618x460]

Wow, falsely claiming a company's products are dangerously defective? Really?

That bone-chilling sound you just heard was Jim Henson Productions' legal team having a collective orgasm.

They should totally sue for defamation and then donate any monies they win to some pro-gay civil rights organization just for the lulz.

/Well, yeah and cos it's a good thing to do .


They already said that the money Chick-fil-A paid them for the promotion will be donated to pro-marriage equality organizations, which is a great start. I see nothing wrong with suing for defamation.

Fart_Machine: skullkrusher: Fart_Machine: The difference is that In N Out, despite it's owner being a Born Again, doesn't spend millions backing groups working against the civil rights of others. For Huckabee and others to say its an attack on Christian values is at best disingenuous.

they do spend a bunch of money to be inferior to Shake Shack though.

East coast biatches!

The only Shake Shack I'm familiar with is one in Crystal Cove and it's now owned by Ruby's.


just in NY, CT, FL, DC and PA

if you come across one in your travels, get a double shack burger and a concrete. You shan't be disappointed. Though you might get a little bit fatter

after reading a few random posts I'm compelled to add:

pickles on a chicken sammich = good. anyone who's had a proper shish tawook can tell you the chicken/pickle combo was likely invented by some sort of genius.

cilantro = gross. stinks like old socks.

I'd boycott Chick-Fil-A, except their food is freaking awful so I already don't eat there.

Honestly, how much salt does a chicken nugget need on it? Are you people aware there are flavors other than "salt"? I appreciate that your chicken is actual chicken and not the sort of malformed gunk McDonald's calls chicken, but you don't have to use three pounds of salt per pound of chicken when cooking it.

/ the waffle fries are okay, but I can live without fries.

YoungSwedishBlonde: Why the hell does Chick-fil-a need a day of awareness? Are people not already aware that Chick-Fil-A exists already? Look, I'm not anti-Chick-Fil-A at all but I think it's just a little silly that they need their own day and parades to flaunt that they exist when it doesn't even matter.

fracto73: SisterMaryElephant: Imperialism: MacEnvy: Ugh, what a self-aggrandizing piece of shiat that guy turned into.

Huckabee is the ultimate "have a beer with/would never vote for" guy. Good sense of humor going on the Stewart/Colbert/Conan circuit, I think we'd get along if religion and politics never came up.

I hear this "have a beer" all the time. I don't get it. WTF is up with that? Why woudl you want ot have a beer with a farkass like that? It's him and his ilk that keeps me out of bars and drinking at home these days.

If I could have my pick I would like to have a couple glasses of wine with Michelle. I bet she would be a riot with a slight buzz.

I'd rather have a beer with BIden. I bet he has some good stories and wouldn't hold back on telling them.

As far as I know, there are no criminal charges, right? You haven't been silenced, you voiced an opinion and people told you to fark off. That isn't oppression, you twats, that is life.

I couldn't care less about the boycotts/show of support, but this stuff about some city's mayors (Boston, Chicago) actively blocking franchises from opening is utter bullsh*t. The CEO/COO of Chic-fil-A may have some f*cked up attitudes, but as best anyone can tell their restaurants still employ and serve people across the ethnic/religious/sexual orientation spectrum. So until someone proves otherwise Mayors Emanuel and Menino, either prove they discriminate by not hiring or serving certain classes of people or STFU and protest by not attending the ribbon cutting.

I have been trying to see what the Muppet toys looked like, but I think it is laughable that Chick-Fil-A seems to be claiming that they are doing a "voluntary recall" of what sounds like finger puppets based on Muppets because fingers are getting stuck in the holes (puppets)...

Sure they are...

You could go to KFC, Church's, Popeye's, etc or you could just stay home and make a Chick-fil-gay sandwich on that day.

If they're the kind we picked up last week, they're these plastic cubes with slots to put paper facial features in, kind of like a Mr. Potato Head. The cube is split and hinged, so it's vaguely mouth-like, and you put your thumb in the one hole in the back and use a little tab on the top hinged portion to make it look like it's talking--you're actually working the head not the jaw. It's cheap and honestly, kind of a sucky toy, but then again, Chick-fil-a toys have generally sucked, since they don't tend to do movie deals or anything. The Green Lantern toys from McDonald's were a heck of a lot cooler.

Sue their asses for a few million bucks. Then donate THAT money to GLAAD as well.

Philip Francis Queeg: monoski: This is getting right to the heart of the issue; People who oppose same-sex marriage see it as an attack on their beliefs and are convinced that if it was legal they would be inclined or even forced to run to the local airport bathroom for the sodomy they have been trying to avoid all their lives.

They are largely people who think they chose to be straight.


They are straight people who want points for not being gay.

How about I hammer them for trying to violate the first amendment by forcing their religious views to be state and federal laws?

Here's what needs to happen:

1. Same-sex couples in states that have both same-sex marriage and Chick-Fil-A restaurants get marriage licenses .

2. Same-sex couples bring their officiant and a couple of witnesses (at least one recording video) to Chick-Fil-A.

3. Have a quick wedding ceremony in the middle of the restaurant that can be completed before they're all thrown out.

4. Repeat all over the country.

THERE is your protest.

Aarontology: DeltaPunch: mysticcat: Sometimes a chicken sammich is just a chicken sammich. I don't care if the person making it beats his dog, watches granny porn all-night, cheats on his taxes, or is a moronic bigot. Everyone's got their own issues to deal with. I just want some chicken.

So there's no difference between a guy who beats his dog and a guy who donates millions of dollars to anti-gay groups, in the name of disenfranchising basic human rights? If you can't spot the difference, or if you perhaps don't care about rights of your fellow citizens, then you deserve all the artery-clogging cholesterol you can shove into your craw.

Do you ask the opinions of every single employee of the places at which you shop?

Are you willing to have your money go to some low level schmoe's paycheck if he's going to donate that money to Fred Phelps?


I don't go looking for it, but I sure as shiat won't support it if I know they do!

I haven't eaten at CFA in 10 years after sitting next to a franchise owner on a plane from ATL to San Diego. fark, that was a LOOOOONG flight. Holy rolling assholes. The lot of them.

I've got no problem with them being sued for that kind of stuff or denied a business license if an existing store was proven to carry on like that. But what's at issue here is some corporate stiff making some sh*tty comments and a few mayors openly admitting they're going to ban some independent franchisee from opening a store in their city. Presumed guilty of some violation of the law before they were even allowed to break ground. People should have a problem with that regardless of what side of the aisle you fall on....I guess unless you'd be equally okay with some republican mayor not allowing a franchise to open in a town because the CEO of that company supports gay marriage.

there their theyre: The damned Chick-fil-a near my house always has a damn line all the way around the building for the drive through and the inside is like 10 people deep on 4 registers. The food is ok (its fried chicken on bread with a pickle) but it isn't that good in my opinion to constantly have that many people there.


It's kinda like the Olive Garden. For a restaurant that serves non-distinctive generic Italian style food every time I go by there the parking lot is always nearly full. Boggles the mind, especially when there are other choices in my area that serve damn good Italian.

I just want a liberal to explain to me how supporting traditional marriage means you hate gay people. This is the only way these people know how to argue. Think unemployment is high means you are a racist. Don't support healthcare laws means you hate women. Liberals always claim to be morally superior intellectuals but they sure do argue like a child. If any of them actually knew who their fathers were I'm sure they would tell me that he could beat up my dad.

In much of America, traditional marriage once meant that you had to marry inside your race. Was "hate" involved in that? No - it was just "tradition."

Right?

lordaction: I just want a liberal to explain to me how supporting traditional marriage means you hate gay people.


because "supporting traditional marriage" is done solely because of religious objections to homosexuality. There is absolutely nothing that people who engage in heterosexual marriage lose by allowing homosexual marriage to occur. There is no legal, moral or even logical argument against gay marriage. God is not angry that you want people who care about each other to be able to reap the legal benefits (and drawbacks) that marriage confers. If anything, God is happy that you favor easing the lives of "sinners" if that is what they even are.

You oppose gay marriage because you find homosexuality to be icky. Even that in itself is not objectionable but get over your own selfish feelings and allow people to enjoy life and legal protections as you do.
