Chicken Chain Changes Course
Associated Posers ^ | 9-20-2012 | geronl

Posted on 09/20/2012 2:22:35 PM PDT by GeronL

(Associated Posers) - Chick-fil-A came to terms with Chicago aldermen and has come away making changes to it's founders stand for traditional marriage. The College Park, Georgia-based company says that it will no longer bar gay chickens from being used to make it's chicken sandwiches.

"All of our tests have determined that gay chickens taste just like chicken" the company said in a press release cheered by homosexual activist groups. "Therefore there is no longer a policy against the use of gay chickens for our delicious meals".

A month ago supporters of the chicken chain clogged roads to break sales records after homosexuals called for boycotts. The chain has tried to keep the new policy quiet to keep it's customer base from launching their own boycott in a backlash.

A message reportedly from the right-wing Tradition Chicken Coalition responds by saying "We are the customer base that keeps them in business and we will have to review our support of CFA".

One lone protester has already showed up outside the home of COO Dan Cathay with a sign that said "No Gay Chickens"

Capons:
“A capon is a castrated rooster whose testicles are removed through a surgical procedure. Because testosterone is also removed, these roosters are often less aggressive and are fatter than regular roosters, making them a sought-after chicken for consumption.”

Where I grew up our local butcher had a much earthier and to-the-point definition of a capon.

Some gay entrepreneur should just start up his own chicken sandwich chain. He can call it Chuck-Fil-A’s.

What do you call a gelded rooster? And I should know since I grew up on a farm (minus chickens) and used to steer bulls. Never removed rooster fries myself.

For many months now, Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving has been mischaracterized. And while our sincere intent has been to remain out of this political and social debate, events from Chicago this week have once again resulted in questions around our giving. For that reason, we want to provide some context and clarity around who we are, what we believe and our priorities in relation to corporate giving. For a better understanding of our corporate giving, please see the attached document titled “Chick-fil-A: Who We Are”. This is the same document provided and referred to in coverage surrounding Chicago. http://cot.ag/Sa2Sac

Capons:

Some years ago, I purchased a capon at a supermarket. Since few of these are sold, the cashier didn't know what it was. I explained that a capon is to a rooster what a steer is to a bull. She laughed her head off.

Somewhat embarrassed to admit it, I didn’t even know roosters, or birds in general, had ‘em. They’re on the inside.

“The male chicken testicles are usually boiled and eaten simple and plain, but you can always ask for spicy stewed or garlic stir-fried.

With a tight skin like a sausage, the interior of the testicles taste soft and tofu-like. Be sure to find some in the famous Snake Alley Market in Taipei.”

What disturbs me is the thought of all those gay chickens and the stories of early "development" in children. It is bad enough when the hormones. But the damage from the hemones?

The HUGE MANATEE!

BAGAWK MAN!
