    Even the Wall Street Journal is raving about chicken sandwich madness, reporting on Popeye's outage and Twitter trolling, Chik-fil-A's claims of being there first, and McD's rush to join the race with a 'category-leading sandwich.'

    Of course WSJ's focus is on financials, with CfA having huge growth in number of stores (passing up Subway in the US) and Popeye's showing significant growth too.

    The guy would have been better off using the time for a nice relaxing mani-pedi.

    Hmmm. :?
    This entree combination is one that is included on the paper sheet of coupons I previously mentioned (which I have).
    But the coupon price is $8.99. :shock:

    Obviously, this guy has a problem that goes way beyond a chicken sandwich, but it's also clear that the Popeye's people are messing with us and creating a false shortage to strengthen demand.

    Last week, I got off the Green Line at State/Lake, and thought I'd check out the Popeye's on Wabash, maybe get one of the famous sandwiches (and yes, I am a little embarrassed to admit that). In front, by the street, sitting on the pavement, was a guy with a sign, which I didn't read. The guy shouted to me as I went in, "Can you please get me a combo meal, extra hot, all white meat," or something like that. I thought he had an interesting approach to panhandling, being so specific about his request, but, like the chicken shortage, just another marketing initiative that may or may not work.
