Today is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A!

I’d like to  remind everyone that today is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A.

How do I know? Because the restaurant chain’s marketing director stopped by my blog earlier this week and sent me a message to remind me of this very important date. How cool is that?

Remember that if you dress as a cow or wear some type of cow costume or prop, you’ll get a free meal. Who said there’s no such thing as free lunch?

Save the cows, eat more chikin!

Cows, cows, cows at Chick-Fil-A!

This is Chick-Fil-A’s third appearance on this blog, following the article with the stuffed cow photo, and the cow billboard. This time I’m taking you inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant. Don’t look for chickens during your visit because there aren’t any. But if you want to see cows, you won’t be disappointed!

Let’s start with the set of famous triplets, the same ones as on the billboard, right on a table skirt:

If you miss these cows, maybe you’ll see the cow hanging from the ceiling. Personally I think human firefighters look a little sexier, but I can see the appeal for some people…

And if you have kids, don’t miss the play area, where this cute cow face will welcome you, if you’re short enough:

By the way, did these cows learn to read and write with Hooked on Phonics? Come on, what are they trying to teach our children? Even Charlotte the spider can spell better.

More Chick-fil-A cows, please!

As I was reading my incoming e-mail messages this morning, I spotted one from my best friend titled “Cat Posters”. Yes, cats, not cows. Each picture was cuter and funnier than the previous one, and all came from the very funny website I Can Has Cheezburger? Stop by if you need a good laugh and you like cats (or almost anything funny since they have a whole bunch of hilarious sites).

Of course, the law of cow probability (one day, I’ll write up this one officially) says you can’t view dozens of cat posters without expecting to see at least one cow, so here it is, in the bottom right corner. A mountain dairy cow scratching the top of her back…

Still browsing through my messages, I spotted one from my husband. It was the type of messages he sends through his cell phone, with no subject line. Thanks for thinking of me, baby, this was definitely not something I was expecting to see…

He apparently ran into this Chick-fil-A billboard while driving in San Diego and managed to take a quick photo at slow moving speed. All I can say is that I’m glad he’s the one who spotted this billboard. Had I been the one suddenly exposed to such lifesize cows hanging for dear life at the top of the billboard, I may have driven off the road!

This is Chick-fil-A’s second appearance on this blog so far (read Chick-fil-A’s first appearance if you missed it), and I have a feeling it may not be the last. After all, who can embrace cows more than a chicken dish selling company? Wait, maybe we shouldn’t think this one through…

I knew it was only be a matter of time until Chick-fil-A would make its first appearance on this daily cow blog. After all, I can’t think of any other US company that uses more cows to sell its products (which are all made of chicken, by the way)!

I still have to make my first visit to a local Chick-fil-A restaurant and read more about their ten-year-old infamous cow ad campaign (“Eat more chicken!”) but today I stumbled upon the company’s name in an article on Yahoo News, which reported on the backlash Chick-fil-A is experiencing after making a number of donations supporting the ban on gay marriage.

I won’t go into the details of the article but what caught my attention was the photo used for it. On the right, check out the happy girl who just received her free Chick-fil-A cow, still in its original package, as she is hugging Chick-fil-A’s founder Truett Cathy! Happy cows, happy customers!

After reading the Yahoo article, I went on Chick-fil-A’s Facebook page to see the activity that was going on. I ended up finding an older wall post promoting Chick-fil-A’s 2011 calendar titled The Cows of Reality TV! Unfortunately, the company is all out of this calendar but you really have to see it to believe it…

Wow, I’m sooooo glad I don’t have cable TV service anymore!

By the way, if you’re still on the market for a 2011 cow calendar, Amazon still has a few dozens to choose from!
