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.

Burger Eclipse: My Favorite Burger Experiences

Threadless released a slew of T-Shirts this past Monday, as they are known to do, but I was pleasantly surprised with one T-Shirt in particular. Burger Eclipse by David Schwen is an epic T-Shirt. Why? Burgers! I love burgers and Burger Eclipse is all about the burger. And apparently, designer David Schwen is a big fan of the burger too, he is incidently also the brian behind the popular Threadless tee, Burgervetica.

Every burger fan has a burger or a burger joint that they swear is the best. For me, that place is Hodad’s in San Diego. This is what I had to say about my Hodad’s experience:

“The menu is a simple one: burgers, fries and shakes! I decided to get the Double Bacon Cheeseburger and I even SAC’d (added Swiss and American Cheese) it! Let me tell you, the burger that I had at Hodad’s may possibly be the best burger that I have ever had (and I’ve had a lot of burgers from many different places). Part of it might have been the setting and people, but, the burger alone was ace.”

Now, I have to say that the burgers at Red Mill Burgers is also delicious as hell. So good! The Bleu Cheese N’ Bacon Burger is THE burger to get from Red Mill. It is amazing and is making my mouth water RIGHT NOW.

And of course I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the Shake Shack in New York. They say that this burger joint is the closest thing the east coast has to an In-N-Out. I’d have to say that the Shake Shack surpasses In-N-Out. It’s just a greasy good burger with no regard for veggies (love that). But it’s still not Hodad’s.

I freakin’ love a good burger! And ALL three of these burgers were, as we say in Hawaii, ono!

Not So Happy: Ronald McDonald Not Really Lovin’ It

Oh you poor Ronald McDonald. I can actually relate to Ronald because I’ve had a little too much McDonalds for liking in the past few weeks. I am a Chicken McNuggets fiend and so the recent 20 piece Chicken McNuggets for $5.99 deal that recently swept through Hawaii was not good for me and my cardiovascular health. They taste really good when you are eating them but within an hour or two I always feel like Ronald does in this lovely Threadless tee. Needless to say, I keep going back. Despicable me!

Not So Happy by Lara Zombie is available now from Threadless for $18. Chicken McNuggets are not included.
