I Love This -- not only because I was literally laughing out loud, but I was JUST on the Chick-Fil-A website, longing for one that wasn't 100 miles from my house.
Forbidden-Fil-A must make the pantheon of catch phrases!
Nice, you posted this on Sunday too.
I don't see many Chick-fil-A branches in my area :(
Brilliant! I always seem to get a craving for Chik-Fil-A on Sundays, the one day a week it is not available. Also, I used to live down the street from the founder's daughter. Everything in their house was cow themed. It was... weird.
A Bond villain you ain't.
I would happily pay $20 for a Chick-Fil-A sandiwch on a Sunday. Happily.
As the cows say...
Have you tried their spicy chicken sandwich? It's now the only thing I'll buy from there.
I have similar notions about McDonald's breakfast outside of their normal breakfast hours.
I just go to Wally World and get chicken patties and make my own Faux-Fil-A.
*sigh* Sane people prefer white meat, but I prefer leg or thigh. If only CFA sold more than breastsc, I'd like it more.
As a Canadian I am both curious as to what a "Chick-Fil-A" is and why it is not open on a Sunday.
Who can resist the siren song of the forbidden-jazz-hands-fil-a?
YAY JAZZ HANDS!!! And what better time to deploy them than when describing a forbidden siren song? My hands are trembling just typing that!
I do believe that "Forbidden-Fil-A" needs to make its way into everyday use.
Forbidden-Fil-A? Brilliant.Chick-Fil-A no longer exists in my vocabulary.
15 cents of every dollar Chik-fil-A makes goes to support the Santorum campaign.
How's that chicken taste now?
Scott will make MILLIONS!!! MILLIONS, I say! Nothing more disappointing than craving a chicken biscuit on Sunday and realizing, "Oh yeah, Chik-Fil-A isn't open today...."
For those of you who don't have one nearby, you must not live in the South. Let me think....I have three within two miles of my house, and about eight or nine within ten miles. My only problem with Chik-Fil-A is that they use peanut oil to fry their chicken, and my tummy is starting to rebel.
I'll gladly pay you Monday for a Chick-fil-A Sunday.
I didn't get this at first. Apparently the Chick-Fil-A execs are fundamentalist Christians or something and won't work on Sundays? I knew they were anti-gay-rights, but the not-open-on-Sundays thing is pretty curious.
I, too, hunger for the Forbidden-Fil-A! Also, I will almost definitely use "'diabolical' doesn't necessarily mean 'good.'"
Anyone besides me pronounce it "Chick-Filla" (rhymes with gorilla)?
I got a watch from Chick-Fil-A, once. Surprisingly, it still keeps time on Sundays.
Rizz Rustbolt;very silly.(nobody's taking the current Republican candidates seriously, which the party should take note of)
...When your job pays so poorly that working at Chick-Fil-A looks like a way to make money (while further degrading the English language) it's time to steal the identity of a CEO and make off with his "parachute"
I used to live in Georgia and now I live in Canada. I would kill someone, right in front of their own mother, for a chicken biscuit from Chick-fil-A.
They are still privately owned so they can do the whole "not open on Sunday" stupidity. And if you can name me one corporation somewhere that doesn't support some idiot politician, I don't care what party they're affiliated with, I will probably call you a liar.
@Ryan: "As a Canadian I am both curious as to what a "Chick-Fil-A" is and why it is not open on a Sunday."
As a Canadian, you are probably also intrigued by our uniquely American "Google". My best friend is a Nigerian prince who needs your help to claim his multimillion-dollar birthright, and I will lead you to both the prince and teh Google for a mere $5000 finder's fee. Your ship has come in, my friend!
Scott, you should see this if you haven't alreadyhttp://chrishanel.tumblr.com/post/19196576643/spread-the-word-theft-is-theft
Struggling with this one. Chick-Fil-A? Is that Fil-A as in fillet?
Personally I never eat chicken unless I've seen the whole beast and cooked it myself. But then - I would never eat Macdonalds (I did once - yeuch!).
I've never seen a Taco Bell (I learned that one from Demolition Man).
I am not Canadian, I'm a Brit, but I am also both curious as to what a "Chick-Fil-A" is and why it is not open on a Sunday.
As a gay person, I'm totally okay with never eating at Chick-Fil-A ever.
Scott, not sure if you've been informed of this (someone's written an android app that reads comics RSS feeds, rips the images and serves them up next to their advertisting), but it's definitely worth your time to get your comic removed from it.
I heard those guys hate gays and give money to denting them equal rights...
the best chicken sandwich ever. the fries are great and the employees fall all over themselves helping you out. without a doubt one of the best fast food joints around.
Really nice conversation..its just that the term 'diabolical' doesn't seemed to be a good one. haha
As much as I like Chick-Fil-A chicken, I stopped eating there after finding out about their strong anti-gay stance. While it is technically their right to do with their money as they please, it makes me very uncomfortable that a portion of the money I'd be spending there would go to organizations with which I so vehemently disagree,
Clearly, they would benefit from Comic-Scott's diabolical leadership and influence.
While they are not open on Sundays, CFA does often hold meetings and other mandatory staff events on Sundays. Not open doesn't mean they let their peons take the day off too.
Well, basically, according to the Bible, God told His people to rest on the 7th day of the week, corresponding to the period between what we would call sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday.
A thousand and some years and some people attempting to (overly?) strictly define what constitutes "work" later, the Messiah comes and doesn't necessarily adhere to their definitions, so they say He's breaking Sabbath.
Then after He dies, rises and takes off for Heaven, His followers do and say some things that are commonly interpreted to mean that the day of rest is now the first day of the week, Sunday, of course, despite nothing in the Bible saying any such thing. (And then in sort of very recent times, some countries decided to make things "labor-oriented" by making Sunday the 7th day, when it would have been labor-oriented to begin with if people followed what the Bible said on the subject.)
Some businesses adhere to this thinking by not opening on Sunday, and others do not. Chick-Fil-A does, and that's their choice; I wouldn't mind being able to eat there on Sunday, but it's kind of far for me to go, either way.
