Animal Rights Protest at Chick-Fil-A

Chick-Fil-A in simpler times

I had no idea there was such a thing as “Cow Appreciation Day,” and it seems an odd way of showing one’s appreciation to devour the creatures in the form of free/discounted fast food rather than a moment of silence or something, but hey humanoids are a weird bunch. My girlfriend and I stopped by there on the way home because she wanted to get something to eat really quick. Admittedly, I eat meat and love fast food, but I’ve never had much desire to go to Chick Fil-A because the one or two times I’ve eaten there I thought it was kinda gross. However, I was like “Whatever I’ll just get some waffle fries or something.” We would never have gone had we known they were doing this free food gag and that the place would be such a zoo. It was like Chuck E Cheese but without the brass tokens, helicopter rides (non-Pinochet variety) or animatronic bands. I was also hoping to maybe top off my diet coke, but they don’t keep the fountain drinks out in the lobby, so you can’t wheez the juice.

Anyway, while we were there, some animal rights people showed up to protest, so I filmed it.
