Oblivious chicken sandwich lovers just wanting to grab a bite on their way home from work yesterday were probably shocked to find long lines and crowded parking lots at their local Chick-fil-A restaurants.
That’s because millions of people across the country chose to show their support for Chick-fil-A by buying a sandwich or some nuggets during Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. As you may recall, the food chain has been under fire lately for comments made by their President Dan Cathy regarding the company’s views against gay marriage.
From eyewitness reports on Twitter, and photos of long lines posted on Facebook and Instagram, we know that there were a lot of Chick-fil-A supporters that turned out.
And if you trust celebrity pastor and author Rick Warren, Chick-fil-A broke records yesterday:
We’re not exactly sure what records Chick-fil-A broke, as the company hasn’t publicly announced any figures from Appreciation Day 2012.
Tomorrow, a “National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A” will take place around the country. I’d be surprised to see Rick Warren tweeting about that turnout.
I’m sure everyone’s tired of hearing about this. How about we just put it to rest with some comedy from both sides of the issue, one professional and one amateur:[h/t Business Insider] [Image via Mad_African, Flickr]
