Chik-Fil-A, a company known for their Christian values, dressed someone in head-to-toe FUR and put them out around noon/1pm today, June 18, 2009, in this sweat-pocket-hell-fire Orlando, Florida summer heat... and made them wave a hoof.
What does this practice communicate to customers? Sure its hilarious and unexpected to see a goofy cow costume on the side of the road, but there is an Orlando citizen frying his brains out inside that moo-head. Squeeze an udder and you wouldn't get milk, just a white-colored cup of boy-sweat. WWJD? Not this job. And he certainly wouldn't ask other people to do it.
But hold up wait a minute!
We forget that there's a company right down the road that does this sort of thing to employees every single day of the year. Full fur costume, out in the sun, balls-deep in heat... daily!
Anyways, this man-inside-a-cow's-body ordeal is part of Chik-Fil-A's Customer Appreciation Week, which, by its end on Saturday June 20th (the day before its required "day-of-rest" weekly Sunday closure), will have brought us the following community goodness:
International Community School Spirit Night:
-photo opportunities with the “Eat Mor Chikin” Cow (maybe in the A/C this time)
-Petey the Clown (since its a restaurant, they should have named him "Eaty")
-Bingo, face painting, balloon art and more
-Thirty percent of sales during the event will go to the International Community School.
The Methodist School Spirit Night
-Eaty the Clown (again)
-“Eat Mor Chikin and sweat like Christ” Cow (again)
-face painting and balloon art (BUT NO BINGO GOD DAMMIT)
-Thirty percent of sales during the event will go to The Methodist School. Praise be.
