Well they did it. Yesterday throngs of supporters gathered at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the nation for a grand old "hate-fest" -- oh, excuse me. For a "right to express hate-fest." Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day celebrated a billionaire restaurant owner's right to shovel his customers' money toward anti-gay marriage initiatives if he damn well wants to. It's the American way! And of course, Dan Cathy has that right.
But in the fight between Chick-fil-A haters and lovers, which side is winning? We are, because this whole cock fight has stirred up a whole lotta comedy. Never before have chicken sandwiches been this funny. Here are a few highlights from the kerfuffle. Chick-fil-Gay sandwich, anyone?
Guess who loves Chick-fil-A? Neo-Nazis, of course. Members of at least one neo-Nazi group showed up at one of yesterday's event. And you know what? Awesome. Nothing helps along a cause like neo-Nazis. They add a certain legitimacy and rationality to the whole debate, don't you think?
Here's Conan O'Brien's Chaz the Intolerant Chick-fil-A Chicken. He says, "There's only one great chicken sandwich, and only one way to love." This is just the first of four appearances Mr. Intolerant has made so far.
