I love the mission statement[edit]

{To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A}, unless you are talking about their waistlines and coronary arteries I guess... ~ Subsound ~ 22:37, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

In the South, Chick-fil-A is considered health food. Be very afraid. Тyeh? 23:41, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh god, please tell me you're kidding! I know you are probably not, and it scares me. ~ Subsound ~ 00:30, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
I like the wording "come in contact with Chick-fil-A," as in, "If skin comes in contact with Chick-fil-A, call a poison control center immediately." Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 01:53, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
Behold! Your doom! Тyrannis 02:14, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Bullshit vs. Sabbath[edit]

Actually, my issue is that Sundays are the only days I actually want Chick-Fil-A, and I can never get it then, dammit! -- Seth Peck (talk) 20:05, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

And how are readers supposed to know that?--Tiberius Gracchus.jpg. 20:07, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

One mystery[edit]

Can some people whose entire contact with Chick-fil-A hasn't been through written words settle this for me. How are you supposed to pronounce "Chick-fil-A"? Is that last part like "filler" or "Fill A"? Scarlet A.pnggnostic 17:06, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

It's pronounced like "filet". No idea why. Perhaps the dumb cow thing? Cow...Hammertime! 17:09, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Like a fillet of fish. ТyNot updated with a witty slogan this week 17:21, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Chick-fillet? What. The. Fuck? Scarlet A.pngsshole 17:25, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
I suppose rendering it in an American accent makes marginally more sense. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 17:26, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
(ECx2) That might not be the best example. In the UK, we pronounce "fillet" as "fill-it"; in the US, you say "fill-ay". €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 17:27, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
The weasel is correct. ТyNot updated with a witty slogan this week 17:28, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Figured. That makes sense. Scarlet A.pngpostate 17:38, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Or like "filet mignon". -- Seth Peck (talk) 17:58, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Anti-Gay Donations?[edit]

I feel this article's kind of missing the main point of the controversy over Cathy's comments. It's not so much what he said that's what matters as where the earnings go. Apparently they send money to anti-gay and "family values" groups, but the article makes no mention of it.

I won't add anything for the time being as I'm still going through some stuff to get numbers, and the Wikipedia article on the affair is kind of a clusterfuck right now, as is its talk page. However, I did find this on the talk page which says that CfA, through a second party (unless I'm reading that wrong, and I probably am), donated to, among other groups, Exodus International which are proponents of reparative therapy. Because physical, emotional and spiritual abuse are all perfectly fine as long as it's religiously motivated amirite?

I'll go reading over other stuff in the next couple days, but I think this kind of needs to be addressed because it's more important than simply 'old rich fat white southerner is stupid'. It shows how actual tangible harm comes about from this sort of bullshit biblical thinking. Polite Timesplitter talk to me sugar, but best keep it on thedown-low 10:24, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Only in America...[edit]

Do people make a political statement by eating more greasy food. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 02:12, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Nah. When the Greens called for Veggie Day some ate an extra Currywurst.

Callousness[edit]

Chick-fil-A uses peanut oil for all their foods. That's a problem, because I'm allergic to nuts. On top of that, they rub it in my face. They say they don't care about allergies. They could do something about it, but they choose not to. They just don't care about all the people with nut allergies, that they might die slowly and horribly if they so much as come in contact with nuts or nut products. They're alienating all of us with allergies, and they're being rude ?!$&ers to us about it. You really need to include this information. This is a big deal to me.— Unsigned, by: 173.72.162.61 / talk / contribs 07:21, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

So you're saying you don't like nuts rubbed in your face?

thats surprising since peanut oil is much more expensive. Maybe McDonalds chicken burger would suit you better ? Hamster (talk) 04:54, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
But shouldn't it be enough that they label their use of it? After all, you aren't wont to complain that peanut butter contains peanuts, and thus you are unable to enjoy it? Perhaps Chick-fil-A is simply a food that is fundamentally barred to you. Or does all their food contain peanut oil, denying you any options at their restaurant?--"Shut up, Brx." 07:16, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
I despise Chick-fil-A and all they stand for but this particular BoN's trolling is absolute bollocks - This PDF has complete allergen advice about all their crap. Innocent Bystander (talk) 10:29, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
