You Gotta Be Kidding


A faithful reader emails this pic as seen in Bridgeport.

(Thanks Christi.)

Edit: Maybe someone was kidding me. Anybody verify or deny the existence of this sign?

That is a very accurate political sentiment to sell a piece of chicken. I commend the author and look forward to further commentary.

I'm not voting for Hillary, but that is very offensive to me, as a woman.
That's disgustingly sexist.

What's next? A sign on a hamburger joint saying, "eat here and your cheeks will look like John McCain.

And they do look like they are full of something.

Thanks for making my point. Liberal weenies are always offended by something.

Apparently Hillary does not have the support of the classless (and sexists) workers in Bridgeport, Texas. I am amazed at the amount of ignorance it must have taken in order to reduce a female Senator and Presidential candidate to jokes about her physical appearance- her God given body. This is completely inappropriate and unacceptable.

You have been had. You can see a similar spoof on Snopes at http://www.snopes.com/politics/clintons/special.asp

I have seen that picture before. Last time it was a KFC.

Yep, it's there this morning. But they have an out. Their chicken mascot is also named Hiliary. But they will prob take the sign down this weekend after recieving complaints about it.

Anonymous said...

Well according to the last post it is true. While I am no fan of Hillary, it is unlikely that I will ever eat at Chicken Express again.

Well we don't have that many resturants to choose from here in Bport so how can we dare I say boycott!

I can't verify the sign, although it does not make me want to eat their food. The one and only time I attempted to place an order at the Bridgeport Chicken Express, 5:15pm on a weekday afternoon with no other cars at the drive thru, they said "20 minute wait on all chicken orders". Sorry, but no, I left. Isn't chicken what they do??? Like going to Wendy's to order a burger and they say "We don't have buns today". That happened to me too.

Anonymous said...

8:16AM, I do agree that is crude, but God given body? If you're fat, or have excess fat on a body part or area, there is a thing called exercise and eating right.

The sign is still there this am...Just saw it as I was going to the bank! Gotta love B-port!

Ask R&R. She posted it before you did...

And I'm glad it offends some of you people. Maybe it'll toughen you up a little.

The Medical Supply in Decatur is offering a Special too. Thier special says:

"The John McCain Special today is:

...Buy one "McCANE" and receive a spare "McCANE" for Free. Great for when you forget where you put the first one."

I also heard McDonalds will be offering a special burger close to election time, it's called the McCain P.O.W. Burger. The Patty is made out of fecal matter and a huge bun. The slogan for the new burger being, "The more dough you have, the less shit you have to eat."

On behalf of our grandmothers, mothers, and daughters we should be outraged; this sign implies that it’s okay for women to be judged on their physical appearance not on their contributions. Bridgeport, this is 2008 not 1958. Catch up! It is NOT tolerable to objectify women, ever.

Anonymous said...

The Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce should be ashamed for them. The leadership, Republican or Democrat should ask them to take it down.

This is exactly why Women all over Wise County should stop electing these dumb ass Republicans. Unite Women of Wise County and Vote Democrat!

The ownerships Mother should get an email of this.

I heard Phil King was meeting with the New Leaders of the FDLS's cult and having a fundraiser. I think they plan on meeting at the Bridgeport Chicken Express.

Anonymous said...

The Bridgeport Chicken Express owner also owns the Decatur Chicken Express. I will no longer be eating at either one of them.

Call and complain to (940)683-5012

I think every offended person should write the headquarters at
Stuart Group, Inc. d/b/a Chicken Express
PO Box 1309
Mineral Wells, TX 76068

I think everyone needs to have a sense of humor....lighten up people!!!

wordkyle said...

What a humorless bunch. Based on an old internet joke and a sign that might be real or -- more likely -- fun with Photoshop, we've got women who are offended, women who think men ought to be offended, boycott threats, calls for government intervention, calls for calls to the owner, "ready, aim, blame" against Republicans....

Shouldn't somebody verify the authenticity of the photo before getting this PO'ed? Next thing you know you'll be mistaking a fishing rod for a naked woman.

some people are soooo freaking sensitive. chill out.

I agree... 12:49 I am outraged. How dare they promote that. Women have tried so hard to get as far along as we are today and then they have the nerve to put up that message. *shaking boobs, I mean head*

I'm an educated, professional woman and I LOVE it! Eat more chicken!

I called and asked the manager to explain the message on the sign. That I have two young children that read the sign and can not figure out what they are saying. My girls who are 11 and 13 years old and should not have to see this kind of behavior.

The manager had no explanation other than it is a political spoof posted by the owner. I left my name and phone number lets see if this obvious very ignorant man calls.

HAHA!!!! Stupid redneck hicks at chicken express alomost caused a wreck!... Ok I admit i stopped to take a pic too.

RedNeck County. HHHeeeyaa. Hear about the "W" special? Only one right Chicken Nugget, but it is the one Hannity, Rush, Bill O'reilly likes to suck on. Comes with a bunch of Right Wings and Chicken Shit Dressing, heavy on the white stuff. Tony Blair in the past loved it, but now chokes and pukes when he tries to eat it.

Anonymous said...

1:21 - thanks for the address in Mineral Wells. I went by this morning (Sat) and took my own photo. The disgusting sign was still there at 9:30 a. m. I intend to mail my copy of the pic to the local Chicken Express Manager AND to the headquarters in MW.

As somebody else stated on this board, it is bad enough this is a slam at Hillary Clinton, but it is a totally disgusting slap at women, especially those who are overweight.

I hope these folks lose bunches of customers. They should be ashamed and quite frankly, should apologize publically in the local newspapers.

Anonymous said...

Women wouldn't be soo overweight if they didn't eat at Chicken Express at Gawd knows what all hours.

You have to step away from the Cream Soda's and Ho-Ho's now and then.

Jarhead said...

Funny how all these knee-jerks are so upset about the CE owner exercising his/her constitutionally protected freedom of speech/expression.

Oh, I guess that only applies in situations that they agree with.

These same doorknobs think it's great, though, when someone makes fun of a Republican.

Yeah, the sign probably goes too far, but a reasonable person would see it for what it is: a joke. You're all doing exactly what the CE owner intended. You're playing right into their hands.

So who's the "ingnorant" party here? Him/her for putting up the sign or you for letting someone's sophomoric sense of political humor get you so pissed off? I'd say "both."

Grow up. Take a joke. Laugh it off. Lighten up, Francis.

Anonymous said...

12:29 for sake of all that is decent,honorable and even holy,please tell me you're joking. I mean, my understanding is there really are people who might think that way,it just gives me the creeps to think I might live so close to one.

I don't care who you are,that's funny right there. 5:52, you aren't going to have to worry about voting for Hillary anyway.

Gotagrip said...

Silicone is a cutie with a nice figure who seems to be smart and have a good sense of humor. My guess is everyone freaking out over this sign is lacking one or all of these characteristics

Sik-o-fatchix said...

It's obvious a bunch of you are humorless but please don't try to drag us down the same road of self hate and shame spiral you drug your last 2 conspicuously skinny husbands down. It's not our fault you are fat and ugly and hate yourself every time you stuff a chickenwing into your pie-hole that much more and some how this humorous sign makes you feel worse.
It's also pathetic how you stupid mouthbreathers think you are bringing anyone else up to speed in the civilised world.
Get off the soapbox,put down the chicken wing and get a sense of humor! You big fat dumby! See,that's funny!

Anonymous said...

I think everyone who thought that sign was funny and one of the best embodiments of free speech seen around here in a WHILE should follow 1:21 advice and call.
Interesting enough-the 1st amendments recogition of the right to freedom of speech was specifically meant to apply to politically motivated signs such as this and not pornography at all.
Does that mean Thomas Jefferson would have chosen Hillary over Jenna Jameson? I hope not.

Anonymous said...

The only thing more amusing than the sign is hop pissed everyone is getting over it. Those that are taking offense to this are most likely also the ones laughing the loudest when someone makes fun of Bush. In the end the result is the same- people will keep eating there and we will still have the ability to make fun of, and laugh at, jokes at other people's expense. It may or may not be tasteless, but its our right as American Citizens. So go buy a box of Kleenex and quit cryin'

You people are some the biggest whining sob's I have ever heard. I mean seriously it's a joke, get a sense of humor for christ's sake! I am sure the owner of the Bridgeport Chicken Express (which I know personally) is not worried about losing your business at one of his 6 or 7 restaraunts. On the other hand if reading a small joke on a sign makes you not want to eat there then maybe you should kill yourself because you obviously cannot take the slightest bit of humor in your life and might as well end it. I bet some of you weenies are some of the worthless bunch that are protesting at soldiers funerals as well. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for not being able to read someones elses opinion.. As for the people saying their kids should not be subjected to this kind of material, then I got news for you. You better duct tape their eyes and ears becauses its all over the news, internet, and radio with all their mumbo jumbo.. I really am amused by the way some of you have reacted to a small joke.. Its pitiful..

I'd like to say thanks to Christi for submitting the photo and to Barry for posting it.

Those who think it is funny might think differently if their mother or grandmother's name were posted instead of Hillary Clintons.

Anonymous said...

6:58,part of having a sense of humor is it's applicability in all situations. Even if something might sting just a little-we can still see the humor in it,and anyway I don't really think Hillary needs you to have her back.
If that restaurant owner has any sense he would put up a similar McCain special and see what happens and then drop the whole mess for good.

It is funny, but in really poor taste, just like their chicken. This is an old joke. Heard it a long time ago. It was funnier the first time I heard it though.

I am glad Republicans are above silly things like boycotting food items because they don't agree with the politics! Remember Heinz ketchup and "French Fries" that the Democrats were boycotting because of...wait, that was not the Democrats, if I remember correctly. Oh yea, whatever became of "W" ketchup?

6:58 you are right,no one can poke fun at my mother! Except me of course. I poked fun at her once and she got pregnant. Family get togethers were REAL touchy situations for years.

Chicken Express food is grease laden. Fried everything. If they want to help women get those figures (with little thighs), why don't they offer something broiled or baked?

I have to admit I laughed and laughed......when I read the comments from "jarhead". Talk about "toughening up"; he habitually falls into the school yard, name-calling rut and consistently reveals himself to be among the thinnest-skinned commenters on here. Too Funny!!

The "worthless bunch that are protesting at soldier's funerals" are infamous bigots, which, granted, does sound a lot like a number of the commenters here.

The sign is simply unprofessional and sexist. It's just not funny. Because I don't think this particular immature attack on a woman who really has no weight issues and had the potential, but now unlikely chance to be running our country, doesn't mean I have no sense of humor. I'm not going to go out and protest over the sign, nor am I extremely offended, I just think the sign is extremely unprofessional, unoriginal, and immature. Whoever made the decision to put the sign up clearly does not have respect for their employees because I'm sure that whoever has been receiving the complaints has been taking the heat for the sign instead of whoever owns the restaurant.

chupa said...

6:41 at least when he runs his head you know who he is(not just his superhero identity)and that say a lot about a persons character.

mzchief said...

I actually went to Chicken Express for the first time in the history of EVER and ordered tenders, gravy and a biscuit. I also told the older woman behind the counter that I thought the sign was HYSTERICALLY FUNNY and to tell the owner I appreciated their sense of humor. She told me most people thought it was funny and that they've been busier and sold more chicken the last 3 days than she can EVER remember selling.

Anonymous said...

HA HA so funny, and appreciates their sense of humor. HA HA. This was not a joke, but a real slam to Hillary. Do all the Wah-Wah crowd saying "Liberals/Dems should lighten up! Just a joke!"
Would it still be a funny HA HA joke and a good sense of humor if they put on their sign:

John McCain Special
2 stiff legs
2 right wings
1 left wing
1 wrinkled old neck

Of course they would not do that. They want to slam Hillary and make a political jab, not be funny. Screw'em. If MzSH___ likes their chicken, it must really suck.

Anonymous said...

Why don't these funny Chicken joking MF's have an Obama special? Like:
Basket of dark meat chicken, and 2 wedges of watermelon with a slab of fried carp. Yea, this is Republican Mean Spirited Funny and Mzguided can go all she wants, beings it was her first time and all, but I have been a customer for years, but now I will just go to Taco Mayo or Subway instead. You Republican Chicken Sh!t Bastards that think this is so funny can just go FSTH. Mz can go down on a chicken all she wants. She said she "likes" it. Ha Ha.

Anonymous said...

The Man who owns Chicken Express also owns the Decatur Chicken Express and 6 other Fast Food Chains including the Taco Mayo and some restaraunt I never heard of with his family name on it in Bridgeport. I think I would rather go towards Ft. WOrth or Dentan to get my chicken fixin from now on or maybe I will go to Churches or Popeyes. They have better chicken anyway.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the info,
means also no Taco Mayo
for me or anyone else I can have any clout with.
The need a sign like the Chicken Express:

Hillary El Specialo
2 fatofryothighos tacos

bigo lefto wingo flapo
VoteO HillaryO if not usted Pootoe.

ponson32 said...

Shame on all of ya'll. Jumping to conclusions about the owner of Chicken E's motivations for posting the "Hillary" sign. I think he is a humanitarian just trying to help his fellow man or in this case woman understand that as long as you have fat thighs and small breasts Monica Lewinskis are what you get!!

I have a comment about all the people calling the Chicken Express sign "sexist". Funny, they haven't said a thing about all the pictures of half dressed women that are posted here daily and the comments posted about these beautiful babes. We've got your number.

you know when i go to ball games i have noticed the chicken express here sponsors the different teams of kids and quite often donate to the concession stands in way of tea and cups. I have also noticed they often help with donations to local fire depts., different churches on occasion so you should tell those people they shouldnt accept donations from him as part of your protest.

Chad Howell said...

5:33 you are correct he does contribute to a ton of things in the small town of bport, like GIVING FREE chicken to our high school basketball teams and foot ball teams before games and what not. The man is great person and you people really need to lighten up. I hope all you people like paying those high gas prices to go get chicken elsewhere lol. Oh and btw Chicken Express of Bport is voted best in wise county by the people who live in Wise county so maybe their chicken doesn't suck like you people say. I think you are all just a little too butt hurt. Oh and also I could care less what person's name was up on that board and the joke they may poke at about it. That board has had my name on it actually when the owner was welcoming me back from Iraq..

I am also the same person who posted above about the soldier funeral's and I am not afraid to publish my real name.
