Attention Furries: Free Food

Chick-fil-A Offers FREE Meals to Cow-Dressed Customers on July 8 Seventh Annual Cow Appreciation Day Coming to Chick-fil-A

Oh, those wacky chicken-hawking cows. They want you to “Eat Mor Chikin”, and they are willing to pay for it. Dress up like a cow and on July 8th, you can get free chicken (or chikin) at Chick-fil-A. Dress up like a cow on July 9th and you’ll have to pay for it. But then again, you’ll be dressed up like a cow, which may or may not have happened anyway.

Because Fire And Chicken Belong Together

    * Escalating cheers and excitement from crowds as El Pollo Loco crew members pull the ropes of a massive 25-foot bow drill until an ember possibly emerges     * An El Pollo Loco Grill Master donned in a flame-retardant suit enters the Bow Drill area with giant tongs to grasp the ember that will become the hand-made flame that unites the grills at El Pollo Loco restaurants     * Fire trucks and safety personnel will oversee the event

Promotional stunts can be an interesting way to spend an afternoon. Especially when they involve fire. And food. Tomorrow, in Los Angeles, El Pollo Loco will combine the two in a big way. Like Guinness World Record big. Well, at least the fire part. Read on for the press release, and yes, I posted this solely because of the promotional graphic above.

Eatensil Is A Utensil For Everything

Just Eat everything utensil, the Eatensil.

If you’re in London (and surrounding areas) you can use the internet to eat. Well, to order to eat, that is. Of course they do everything backwards (and on the wrong side of the road) back there, so instead of calling it ‘take-out’ they say ‘takeaway’. And Just-Eat is the internet-y way of ordering.

But what to do when the fish and chips arrive without the little wooden fork? Well, in a clever marketing bit, Just-Eat has created the Swiss Army knife of utensils, the Eatensil. Packed into the monstrosity is a pizza cutter, a wooden chip fork, chopsticks, a knife, a fork and a spoon. And for good measure a bottle opener is housed directly in the body. It doesn’t look like the Eatensil is in actual production, but I’m guessing that even over there, the pizza does arrive pre-sliced.
