More chicken

Why did the chicken
Cross the road and pitch a tent
For free waffle fries

* Haiku Friday is hosted by Lou at LouCeeL.

This week a refugee camp set up along side the parking lot of a newly hatched Chick-fil-a restaurant in town. Rumor was that when the restaurant officially opened for business, the first 100 customers would be rewarded with free Chick-fil-a for a year. Tents and other camping gear filled the grassy areas surrounding the building early the day before its opening.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. That was no rumor: our new Chik-Fil-A’s did the same thing.🙂
    I love their food but can’t imagine camping out for a regular dose of it. Good marketing, though!


  2. We don’t have Chick-Fil-A here, so it’s hard for me to imagine wanting to camp out for waffle fries! Maybe if they come with seasoned sour cream, like at Champps… However, I have seen such camps set up in these parts in anticipation of the latest video game system.


    • The way I understand it, the first 100 get 52 coupons for free combo meals. I do like CfA, but not enough to campout or to eat it every week for a year.


  3. That’s so funny…. we don’t have that fast food chain in Minnesota but I can totally see the lines forming if we were to get one. I’m not sure they’d camp out, the weather here can be ruthless… LOL


    • When she found out about Wal-Mart AND Chick-fil-a opening here, my daughter declared this ‘the best summer ever.’ I agree though, Hamburger Dave’s was awesome and is sorely missed.


So, tell me what you really think:
