Off Topic: 3 Apr 2010

Chick-fil-A is a chicken-base fast-food chain second in the U.S. only to Kentucky Fried Chicken. Though of Southern origins, Chick-fil-A stores can now be found in most of our 57 50 states. (Our condolances to those of you living in Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, the Dakotas, Connecticut, Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations, Alaska, and Hawaii.)

The chain's founder is a devout Christian and he runs his business accordingly. All Chick-fil-A locations are closed on Sunday. For devoted fans, and there does seem to be a fair number of them, this is a matter of woe. The Urban Dictionary defines the term pollo domingo  as "An inexplicable and almost singular craving for Chik-fil-A on a Sunday afternoon, the one day a week Chick-fil-A is closed."

Comedy song writer Tim Hawkins has picked up on this. Try the embedded YouTube clip. It you like what he has to offer, check out his his web site for other samples. Try the one called "Short Songs.
