Eat more…what?

Ooooooooohhh….I’m mad. I could not believe my ears when I heard about this bit of corporate stupidity today. Let’s see, a fast food chicken chain thinks that people are going to confuse its product with kale? I’m guessing that if you eat a lot of kale, you aren’t eating a lot of fast food chicken sandwiches. I could be wrong, of course.
I know I’ve blogged about the “Eat More Kale” guy before, mostly because a) I think people should eat more kale, and b) I want one of his T-shirts! Yes, that’s right…one of the T-shirts that is being threatened by corporate idiocy! I’m not naming the corporate idiot, because I don’t want their name on my blog. I ate one of their chicken sandwiches once when I lived in the Midwest. It was gross. (The sandwich, not the Midwest…I only lived there briefly, but met some great people.)
Well, guess what I just bought myself as a little “You’ve survived your first term of grad school” present? That’s right, an Eat More Kale T-shirt. Awesome.
I’m not too worried about the Kale guy, though. The state of Vermont has got his back. As do his loyal, kale-eating customers. Including those, like myself, who will probably step up and order that T-shirt they’ve been meaning to order. Even if you don’t want to get one for yourself, you could go to his site and sign the online petition. Stop the insanity!
OK…back to preparing for my PowerPoint presentation on “Obesity, Epigentics and the Intrauterine Environment.”
