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.

March 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMark

I don't see many Chick-fil-A branches in my area :(

March 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTan

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...

Eat chikun!

Have you tried their spicy chicken sandwich? It's now the only thing I'll buy from there.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAdam

I have similar notions about McDonald's breakfast outside of their normal breakfast hours.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLummox JR

I just go to Wally World and get chicken patties and make my own Faux-Fil-A.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

*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.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRyan

Who can resist the siren song of the forbidden-jazz-hands-fil-a?

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

YAY JAZZ HANDS!!! And what better time to deploy them than when describing a forbidden siren song? My hands are trembling just typing that!

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersford

I do believe that "Forbidden-Fil-A" needs to make its way into everyday use.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

Forbidden-Fil-A? Brilliant.
Chick-Fil-A no longer exists in my vocabulary.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBloonZ

15 cents of every dollar Chik-fil-A makes goes to support the Santorum campaign.

How's that chicken taste now?

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRizz Rustbolt

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.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterThatJeff

I'll gladly pay you Monday for a Chick-fil-A Sunday.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRyan

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.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTim McCormack

I, too, hunger for the Forbidden-Fil-A! Also, I will almost definitely use "'diabolical' doesn't necessarily mean 'good.'"

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

Anyone besides me pronounce it "Chick-Filla" (rhymes with gorilla)?

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteruwg

I got a watch from Chick-Fil-A, once. Surprisingly, it still keeps time on Sundays.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMr. Non Sequitur

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"

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDee

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 already

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).

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAncient Brit

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.

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSimes

As a gay person, I'm totally okay with never eating at Chick-Fil-A ever.

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteranon

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.

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDominic

I heard those guys hate gays and give money to denting them equal rights...

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermikescafe@gmail.com

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.

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdeimos

Really nice conversation..its just that the term 'diabolical' doesn't seemed to be a good one. haha

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBlake @Offset Printing

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.

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

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.

August 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterWes

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.

Are there Chick Fil-As in Washington? I've never seen one. I assumed they were a Southern thing.

Yep, totally southern. They're all over here in Florida. I doubt they're in Washington; it seems to be the last state that national chains go to. ~Missy
