The horror

Today I swung by a Chick-fil-A for a quick bite, where many examples of their ads were on display: plaintive-looking cows with crudely-lettered signs imploring the customer to eat more chicken. Eat more chicken, they begged with their haunted bovine eyes, or else we'll be slaughtered and ground into hamburger. It was a horrific view of fast food supply chain Darwinism. If the chickens had paintbrushes, would they be scrawling out desperate pleas for humans to turn their carnivorous attentions to seafood? Seriously, the more I thought about it the more I wanted to become a vegan.

But I must admit that it was a very tasty chicken sandwich.
