“Poor taste!”

“Tastes great!”


#3

Their chicken is yum - the spicy kind is actually spicy!


#4

Someone over at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen’s marketing department has a sick sense of humor.

I’m into it


#5

Who knew that chicken could so fun to market? Dawkins could only have imagined that the artifact would be a meme meal.


#6

It’s not the emotional support animal we deserve; it’s the emotional support animal we need.


#7

Keep emotionally supporting that chicken! :flushed:


#8

I don’t get it. What is a ‘support chicken’ and why is it emotional? Because someone is going to eat it?

I strongly doubt that airlines will let you bring outside food onto their planes (but I’m ready to be proved wrong.)


#11

I’ve never heard of an airline not letting you bring food on a plane and have done so several times myself.


#12

You can bring outside food onto the plane. I see people do it all the time. I do it all the time. Much healthier snacks.


#13

I sometimes bring a sandwich onto flights (and always bring nuts and/or snack bars or jerky). The airlines don’t care and neither does airport security. They just care about liquids.


#14

Who the heck has that much leg room?!?!?! FAKE NEWS KNEES!


#15

Now this is something I can get on board with!


#16

It’s a topic that pops up on BB now and then.


#17

I personally try not to, inevitably whenever someone brings food on a plane it’s usually smelly food (not smelly as in bad smell, just strong smelling). I’ve had to bring food maybe twice onto a plane and both times i felt guilty about it but i just didn’t have time to eat at the airport.


#18

In that case, I need to get some documentation for my Emotional Support Pizza, Frank.


#19

Sounds like you need…the Pizza Passport!

I knew that. I was being sarky. :wink:
