Film at 11.


In the midst of a BOY'S NIGHT OUT (caps & bold mine) last Friday, myself, TAN, KC, Dave, James (pictured) stopped at the Popeye's on 13th Street to dine and converse. In addition to a gentlemanly discussion revolving around how stereotypical the scene of three large black men (three of the aforementioned quintet) nibbling on fried chicken looked, the above piece of in-store signage with the Onion-esque headline also prompted a lively, if brief, exchange. Here's how I remember it:
TAN: "Take your batter off, Bitch!"
copyranter: "Naked-er!!"
KC: "Mutherfuckin' YEAH!!!"
James: "Make sure you get me in the pic..."
Aspiring filmmaker Dave also shot a 1 minute, 24 second movie of TAN entitled "crybaby chicken negro," which will be posted here at a future date, and eventually will be entered in next year's OscarĀ® short film documentary category.

Hey CR...long time reader, first time commenter. I work in the "media services" industry for the Wren-meister and since OMC just about owned the Stupid Bowl I was wondering if you had any rants about the $2+ million dollar ads? Be interesting for this media guy to hear/see your insights.

Keep up the work...I start every day with a dose of you.

I would never call a piece of chicken "bitch," I have too much class for that.

Lucky for Popeye's most Americans haven't had real southern fried chicken in a real side of the road chicken shack in Alabama.

They call them naked, and yet in the picture by james it totally looks like they're battered. What gives?

Stony - that's hilarious. what gives is their idiots. They might as well put the chicken strips in three-piece suits, with two-layer north face coat on top of that.

in fact, they might as well put steaks or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the plate. Obviously the image doesn't matter, naked + chicken strips = impulse buy! No one looks anymore once you read those words, you just rush to the counter with your $5.89

also, I would call chicken, bitches, and chickenheads all the same thing ... DELICIOUS!

I don't get it.

If the chicken is already naked, how can it strip?
