On Friday, the culture war between Chick-fil-A and gay rights activists came to a head in Torrance, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. On the night before the planned gay kiss-in, a Chick-fil-A store was the target of some graffiti artist with a sense of humor. The Chick-fil-A was spraypainted with “Tastes Like Hate” akin to the traditional Chick-fil-A painting cow mascot.
While it is very clever, it’s still not legal to deface a building. No matter your feelings on Chick-fil-A as a corporation or as a chicken restaurant, that’s the kind of thing that earns you a hefty fine or a court date, if you’re not lucky. Still, as geek graffiti goes, it’s pretty solid. Not quite the “For The Horde” on the Alliance construction sign, but still pretty good in a Banksy sort of way.
Am I the only person who really wants Chick-fil-A these days? It’s not even a political statement; I haven’t had their chicken in years (since I stopped going to the mall), but with everyone talking about it, all I want is some waffle fries! I kind of hate everyone for waking that craving in me.
