The Dilluting Diluting of a Well-Loved Brand

I'm a Moron Sometimes (Fine, Most Times)

The Boyfriend: "...and they should put more locally-owned restaurants in the airport, because local businesses pay for that airport with their taxes..."

Me: "Yeah, then they just give it all to Chick-Fil-A, which is in Utah."

The Boyfriend: "Are you sure? I think they are based in the South."

Me: "I think they are Mormon."

The Boyfriend: "I know they are churchy, but I don't know if they are Mormon. They might be Baptist. I know they are closed on Sunday."

Me: "Hmm wait, maybe they are Seventh Day Adventist."

The Boyfriend: "No, because..."

Me: "...because then they wouldn't serve meat!"

The Boyfriend: "Uh yeah, except that they would be closed on Saturday."

Me: "Oh, yeah."

The Boyfriend (laughing): "I mean, of all the ways to be churchy, we can go ahead and eliminate them and the Jews."

Note: Just now in typing that I debated whether to quote him verbatim, what with the words "eliminate" and "Jews" in the same sentence, but The Boyfriend insists on accuracy.

I haven't figured out why, just yet, but I'm LMAO.

Just now, in typing this, I am debating whether or not to tell the world that I had to explain The Girlfriend why I also included "the Jews".

I'll make sure and be the one to go on record (in case you haven't looked it up by now) and say that Chik-fil-a is from Atlanta, and is very baptist-y christian, though i'm not sure which specific denomination.

Clearly, you need to go to the original Dwarf House.

Aren't most of the restaurants in the Nashville Airport now locally owned? I know O'Charleys is locally owned. I think they are putting in something from Bongo Bob and something from Loveless Cafe and Swett's.

Yeah, here is a list: http://www.nashintl.com/renovation/restaurants.aspx

Looks like around half are locally owned, most of the rest look to be franchises (which are also likely locally owned).

I'm fairly sure they're Baptist. (Chick Fil A).

I read this entry twice before I realised you said "Moron" and not "Mormon".

I kept waiting for the big conversion experience.

Ha! They're in the ATL fyi... I double checked on the corporate website.

It took me a moment to figure out what what he meant by "eliminate the Jews". Confused, not outraged. Because, you know, I'm all about the elimination of religions, but not the people in those religions.
