Eat More Kale

David and Goliath, again.  Chik-Fil-A (the second largest fried Chicken franchise next to KFC) is harassing a small town Vermont print maker for doing t-shirts that say: Eat More Kale (which he has been doing since 2000).  Eat Mor Chikin (apparently Chic-Fil-A is also concerned with literacy) is their slogan.

You get the rest, right?  Crazy evil corporation goes after a guy for doing what he's been doing for ages because they think it infringes on their trademarked slogan.  Fuckin Stupid (to use language the Chick-Fil-A folks will understand).  So here is what you need to do:  Go HERE and sign this poor guys petition (his name is Bo).  And if you are feeling in the spirit of the holidays order a t-shirt, but don't expect it any time soon, it would seem the Eat More Kale movement has been given a boost by Corporate Food  giant Chik-Fil-A and this guys is overwhelmed with orders till after Christmas.

Here are some of the subversive things going on at the eat more kale workshop:

Real threatening don't you think?

Oh and don't forget:  Eat More Kale (it's good for ya!)
