Eat More Kale: Chik-Fil-A Big Bully?

Bo Muller-Moore has a beef with Chik-Fil-A. Or, Chik-Fil-A has a beef with Bo Muller-Moore. Muller-Moore is a folk artist who started a business centered around the phrase “eat more kale.” The more problem is that the fast food chain Chik-Fil-A has a similar trademarked phrase, “eat mor chikin.”

Apparently, the Chik-Fil-A folks feel that the phrase “eat more kale” will confuse Chik-Fil-A fans. A lawyer for Chick-fil-A sent a letter to Muller-Moore saying that his kale phrase “is likely to cause confusion of the public and dilutes the distinctiveness of Chick-fil-A’s intellectual property and diminishes its value.”

BULLSHIT.

I’m totally with Bo Muller-Moore on this one. Seriously Chik-Fil-A, you should consider focusing more of your time, energy, and resources on improving your chicken entrees. Leave the kale alone.

Mr. Cluck’s Fried Chicken: Hello Hurley!

Oh my good ness it’s been a long time since I’ve featured a Lost T-Shirt. The last time I did was probably when I did this … and oh yeah, this. In any case, great T-Shirt from our friends over at TeeFury. Of course, the Mr. Cluck’s Fried Chicken is only available for the next few hours so be sure to grab this one ASAP. The best part is that it’s only $10 – you can’t really go wrong with that price.

Welcome to Atlanta by Linty Fresh

The start of a new month means just one thing – a brand spanking new tee from Linty Fresh! The May design from Linty Fresh is called Welcome to Atlanta and it’s an interesting one. It’s a nod to the hometown of Linty Fresh, Atlanta, Georgia, and it features some iconic Atlanta imagery. First off, the peach is central to this shirt and rightfully so as it is the state fruit and the first thing that many think of when Georgia comes to mind. And then you’ve got the The Big Chicken, a local landmark, if not an infamous one, that dates back to the 1960′s. Linty Fresh has pitted these two Georgia icons against each other and I am terribly afraid to see what the outcome would be, yikes!

And as always, Eric has put together a graphic that shows the design process for Welcome to Atlanta. Great stuff! You can pick up Welcome to Atlanta from Linty Fresh for $22.00. 

I’ve also got something special for you Linty Fresh fans – it’s Linty’s own Eric Terry singing an original song that he wrote, Stick Around! Now isn’t he just an all around talented guy!

Coty’s Thoughts:

Wolves Vs. Werewolves by Dance Party Massacre. Good: Brings back the acid wash look, super soft feel, screenprinted label and tagless for itch free comfort, fun design, lots of amenities added to every order. Bad: High price point, but, it is a high quality product. Price: $27.95.
