Chick-Fil-A is taking on the role of Sam-I-Am. They want us to believe that it is okay to eat chicken and eggs for breakfast.
When they opened a new store in the area near my work, they brought us samples of their chicken biscuit breakfast sandwich. I’d never considered eating fried chicken for breakfast, but it tasted pretty good.
Then they went and added the egg. And I gasped.
How can you eat the entire life cycle of an animal in one product ?
There is a reason why you will never see a “chicken omelet” on a diner menu.
Ham, bacon, vegetables of all sort, seafood, dried beef or sausage gravy all seem to blend well with eggs and have been enjoyed forever.
But chicken ? That’s where I draw the line. It just seems like culinary sacrilege.
They are airing a new commercial that features the famous Chick-Fil-A cow doing rooster impressions on the front lawn.
Very cute, even clever.
But I still won’t eat the featured breakfast, a bowl of scrambled egg, hashbrowns and fried chicken nuggets.
“I could not, would not, on a boat.
I will not, will not, with a goat.
I will not eat them in the rain.
I will not eat them on a train.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! You let me be!
I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I will not eat them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere!”
