• WTF? The man doesn’t know how to eat fried chicken? Where was he brought up? Under a rock in Sudan? If there is any justice at all in this world, the judge assigned to this needs to toss the suit with extreme prejudice, award Popeye’s legal costs, and sanction this idiot to within an inch of his career. Small wonder lawyers are considered so sleazy. This one seriously needs to be made an example of.

    Hey, I can dream, can’t I?

  • Said attorney should be drawn and quartered, and then disbarred for wasting the court’s time. Fried chicken is meant to be eaten with the fingers. Typical loser, he bit off more than he could chew and now it’s somebody else’s fault. Next he will try to make this an ADA case!

    Popeye’s has never handed out knives with their fried chicken unless you ask for one, which nobody but carpetbaggers ever does. But they are available, and I’m sure that this is the first and only time said attorney has EVER eaten fried chicken, much less Popeyes fried chicken.

    Popeyes has only been the best store bought fried chicken available for over 30 years, but then I may be biased, even though it has been a Yankee company for some time now. At least they still use the original spice mix.

  • “Man upset; had to chew his own food”

  • If he doesn’t chew his food before swallowing, what difference would a plastic knife make? (And, as someone whose eaten fried chicken in many venues, including while catching beads at a Mardi Gras parade and at church socials, I’ve never used a knife when eating it; and whatever my libation, remembered that my Momma taught me to chew thoroughly before swallowing).

    I suppose that Popeye’s could print a warning on each food item: “If you’re too stupid to crew thoroughly before trying to swallow, don’t buy our products.”

  • That’s what happens when you lose your teeth because there is no label on a sledge hammer warning that it is not edible.


  • Secondary target could be dental health professionals. Teeth Matter!

  • Fans of LSU, Florida, Tx A&M and any others who may need a bit of cheering up today may want to follow the link after the Update above for some classic put downs. But for long time readers of OL this one by CoryCory is a winner:

    “Did he spill his hot coffee too?!!”

  • Catch 22: If this lawyer has trouble eating chicken without a knife can he be trusted with one?

  • neither his parents nor law school told him don’t bite off more than you can chew. the rest of us learned that lesson at around age 5.
