Woman: On second thought, let's just stick with roast checkin.
Sign reads: LUNCH SPECIAL Chicken Roasted Au Provence.
Le fast food Cafe?
Le Jacques en ze Box?
That would make it R.C. … as in R.C. Cola!
@ Jo Clear: Yeah, George Mason University learned that the hard way when they renamed their law school The Antonin Scalia School of Law.
Lol, Love that acronym.
Must be how vegans think of roast chicken.
Everything turns at some point.
I’ve never been a big pancake fan, but I like going to IHOP for their sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy..I’ve suggested that they change their name to reflect the thing I like most on the menu, but they don’t seem interested in being known as IHOSEBAG.
As they say in the culinary arts … its all in the presentation.
Posted earlier here, but had time to research and make a correction. Anyone remember the Krispy Kreme Klub promotion in England last year??? You can’t make stuff like that up….it’s too funny!
I wonder if that is the hidden sub-title for the ‘secret’ European Trade Agreement.Or does it describe a congress that works only 120 days a year?Whatever the message, there’s a lot of it going around.

I’ve since heard it was urban legend, but the story used to go around that Chevy had to reconsider marketing the Nova in Spanish-speaking countries. No va means “doesn’t go.”

Let’s face it; maybe it is crap. What/where is provence?
Reminds me of the TV ads I used to see for CPAP, which I invariably read as if the second letter were an R.
Most of the former Pepsi-owned restaurants go by their initials only: KFC and A&W. I wonder why Taco Bell doesn’t just go by TB.
I don’t feel like chicken today.Can I get Sliced Ham In Toast?
Dairy Queen once had a slogan “Have you D-Qed today?” When I lived in New Jersey there was a dairy bar named O’Dowds. They didn’t use a similar slogan.
Another blow struck for Truth in Advertising !
I fondly remember the acronym the Republican fundraising committee used for Richard Nixon’s second term – CREEP ! ( Committee for the Re-Election of the President )
Looks better than its acronym!
oh, so it’s FRENCH C.R.A.P.
Richard S. RussellI was hearing a commercial for those, and suddenly realized that Nova is an exploding star. That led to Vega being the brightest star in the Lyre.
Pullet au Mercedes – chicken run over by a car.
AKA Road Kill du Jour
I remember several years ago when I worked in a department store and we had a display advertising Peas, Carrots, and Beans. When I looked at the display I got this shiver running up my spine and realized that the display could make people think of the recent PCB scare we’d recently had in the state. When I pointed that out to the manager he took down the sign but left the display.
Duck in and Waddle Out, Kalamazoo….
Sailor that looks good….dflak I’m stealing that….
presentation means a lot
