The back and forth between Chick Fil-A and The Jim Henson Company continues this week, after Henson CEO Lisa Henson announced she was pulling Muppets toys from Chick Fil-A in response to Chick Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s comments in support of “the biblical definition of the family unit,” and Chick Fil-A’s continued support of anti-gay marriage organizations. Chick Fil-A’s response was to claim the toys had actually been removed “because of a safety issue.” That’s all pretty dry, but things took a turn for the humorous when Chick-Fil-A apparently started creating profiles of fake teenagers to defend them from mean comments on their Facebook page, like “Abby Farle” here:
Wow, a stock photo, really? Couldn’t even find a photo of a real teenager? It might be a violation of my parole to say this, but there are a lot of photos of teen girls freely available on the internet. The “derr” was a nice touch though. “Sir? Our focus-group data tells us teenagers often respond to each other with sarcastic gibberish words. …For the life of me, I don’t understand it either, but our research department has never been wrong.”
You can tell Abby Farle was a conservative mouthpiece because she used “derr.” If you’ve seen any Aaron Sorkin shows, you know that when liberal mouthpieces need sarcasm-drenched rejoinders, they use “ya think?!”
