Another thing that's always driven me crazy about Chick-fil-A...

by Jeremy Hooper

…is that the cows that they have taken it upon themselves to position as bad spellers are actually dairy cows:

Eat Mor Chikin

This long-running campaign's obvious goal is to dissuade customers from beef by having photogenic cattle sell out their fowl friends. But these are not the kind of cows that are threatened on the carnivorous level. And since Chick-fil-A does serve milk, the above-pictured trio's interests are still affected by the company's habits.

And what's with the intentional misspelling anyway? We can personify the animal, so long as we retain dominance? What we can't have those (dairy) cows getting so high and mighty, since we need to feel okay eating them too?

The whole campaign is nonsensical. Sure, not as nonsensical as positioning a rich and vibrant population as invoking God's nation-wreaking wrath by virtue of their love...

DAN CATHY: (1:05)"…I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about"

…but aggressive misrepresentation would seen to be a through line connecting the two.
