A little less than a year ago a new mom and pop fried chicken joint opened up on Nicholson not too far from where I work. I’d planned on giving it a try at some point, as Baton Rouge isn’t near the fried chicken town that Jackson is (oh Two Sisters, I miss you and your buffet so…). The idea of trying out some fried chicken that was something other than the corporate chain variety was something I was looking forward to.
That is, until I drove by the other day and saw this sign:
In what will be perhaps my wittiest statement of the year (and here it is only February and I was the only one there to hear it), I immediately thought, “so that means you’ll give me Hepatitis C?” Thus ended my entertaining the idea of giving Fricken Chicken a whirl.
Really, though, what’s this supposed to mean? Cane’s, a well-known chicken finger chain out of Baton Rouge always has some witty comment on their letter boards, and maybe this was Fricken’s attempt to join the club. If so, I would have put this in the ‘No’ pile. The only frame of reference I have for this is communicable diseases. Wgo suggested that perhaps it meant they had fake breasts. Perhaps there’s some hidden reference to Barb Wire I don’t know, having not seen the movie (has anyone ever seen that movie?). That being said, are any of those things you want people thinking about when they drive by your chicken stand?
So I’m still puzzled. If you can solve this odd fried chicken/Pam Anderson riddle, please let me know.
Unrelated update: E has her pictures up from the Spanish Town Parade, some of which I contributed.
