Is that the line for the release of the iPhone 5?!
Not quite. It’s August 1, the Mike Huckabee–sponsored “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” The baptist minister, former governor of Arkansas and strong proponent of cow illiteracy called on supporters of “traditional marriage” to rally in support of the restaurant, following president and COO Dan Cathy’s recent remarks. And now a half-million bigots who aren’t Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum have flocked (pun intended) to their local hate-chicken chains.
Enjoy these photos of the madness as customers waited in lines to pack their distended gullets with gobs of chicken, cheese, bread and soggy pickles. (Please excuse the blurriness of some of these photos; the hands that took them were very greasy.)
