Eat Chicken



















I'll borrow the Chick-Fil-A cows whom I've become acquainted with due to my beloved Miami Hurricanes sucking the last couple of years. Playing in the Chick-Fil-A bowl wasn't embarrassing enough, so we decided to get thumped in the Chicken-Shit bowl, but back to Lebanon.

People of Lebanon, PLEASE EAT CHICKEN. First of all, have you seen the chicken prices? Chicken has become so cheap, that even McDonald's has switched to real chicken to save money. Secondly, you will not get bird flu from eating chicken. You are million times more likely to get bird flu from a pigeon crapping on you on the street. So stay indoors. I've been to Tanmia's facilities, they have every possible health and quality control certification , they will not sell you sick chicken.

Last and most importantly, our chicken is 100% Lebanese. Cows aren't. Our economy needs every little help it can get. I don't want to be like our demagogues that cherish chances to rile up the racism in us, but have you heard cows? You know who else says,"Moo".

Eating chicken, almost everyday. Still cannot force myself to eat McDonald's.

good one :)
I posted about this issue a few weeks ago. people in lebanon stopped eating chicken as soon as they heard that H5N1 was in Turkey, it became "uncool" to eat chicken. and our government did nothing to educate the people and support the farmers and merchants. who is to blame here, people's ignorance or lack of leadership?
thanks for blogging about it, it maybe the biggest publicity this might get.

Though I know - like you said -that you don't intend to be racist about it.. and that it's just the politics behind it that you aim at...

But I think have to agree with anonymous number 1, Jamal.

Apart from that, the cow vs. chicken match is good :)

haha... :P

I started eating chicken again (I had stopped a while back). Meh, whatever. If I get the bird flu who cares (no really, who does?), it's just life.

Aslan, aslan, when did we start eating cows again? last thing I know, those animals were still "mad"... pfff, it's hard for me to dump the chicken.. we're still close! it's not over yet!

Don't forget that many people in Lebanon still believe in "saybet el 3ein"...
