Chick-Fil-A declares Cow Appreciation Day 2011: Get your free meal on
Chick-Fil-A restaurants nationwide are handing out free meals and entrees Friday. But there's a catch: You'll have to dress up like a cow in honor of Cow Appreciation Day. You can locate your local Chick-Fil-A here:
If you dress partially like a cow -- maybe tack on some udders, or pin on some construction paper spots? -- it will earn you a free entree item. But if you dress head to hoof and saunter up to the counter, it will get you a full free meal. Same goes for calves, er, I mean kids.
It's the latest publicity campaign for the fast-food chain that's all about chicken. (Its mascot is a cow urging you to -- of course -- eat more white meat.) The gambit seems to be working: The Internet has been buzzing about the free food offer for hours.
Do you have a leftover cow costume from Halloween's past? And if you did, would you be brave enough to walk into a Chick-Fil-A store wearing it? If you answered in the affirmative, then you'll want to get in on this action too: Take a picture and submit it. The fast-food chain will be handing out free meals as part of a photo contest.
