Poultry with Pizzaz

I love this sign, which you can find in Jacksonville, Florida. I drove past it two times a day, four days a week, for six months or so, and I grinned almost every time I saw it. The chicken from Bucky’s Family Restaurant (see Friday’s post for a reminder) is certainly well-dressed, but really, you rarely see poultry with such panache.


Let’s take a minute to really examine his ensemble. Snazzy hat? Check, with bonus points for the feather that adorns it. Suit? Check, with bonus points for the suit being red. Black and white formal shoes? Check, and I bet they’re made from alligator skin. (After all, this is Florida.) Long overcoat? Check, with bonus points for the coat being purple. Finally, he appears to be wearing gloves and he’s holding a cigarette. What’s not to love?
