Some Random Stuff and a Very Short Movie Review

Chick-fil-A v. The Muppets

In the past year or so, I have been pretty vocal, here and on Facebook, about Chick-fil-A's sanctimonious stance on their Biblical positions and, in particular, their support for anti-gay marriage politicians and organizations.

Last week, after Chick-fil-A's CEO, Dan Cathy, publicly doubled down on the company's position on same sex marriage and a general condemnation of what they perceive as the rampant immorality of the American people who flock to their stores to fill their coffers, the Jim Henson Company publicly severed their promotional ties with the chicken sandwich chain, canceling a toy give-away.

                                                  Proving that hand puppets are more evolved than some humans.

Regardless of The Blog's opinion of the junk food chain's religious, political and social positions, The Blog has always given them credit for staying true to their convictions.

It would seem that The Blog has given them too much credit.

Within 24 hours of the Henson announcement, the sign below began showing up at Chic-fil-A counters around the country.

I guess that Chic-fil-A's new corporate policy is to lie to their customers.

Is lying a new "Christian value?"

Speaking of Christian...

Kudos to The Dark Knight, himself, Christian Bale for jumping on a plane from Paris and getting his bat-self to Aurora, Colorado to visit the victims and survivors of the movie theater massacre. Based on the numerous cell phone pics that have surfaced on the internets, Bale brought a lot of smiles to a place that is in desperate need of smiles!

                                                                                          Like this one.

There has been a push on Facebook to get Bale to appear in full Batman costume at the hospitals. A cool idea, but The Blog understands the logistical difficulties that would have been involved.

A tip of the hat to Warner Brother's, as well. The studio has donated a reported $2 million to the survivors and families of those who were murdered. If The Blog knows his Hollywood people as well as he thinks he does, the outreach has only just begun.

The Shortest Movie Review Ever...

The Blog and Mrs. Blog saw "The Dark Knight Rises" today.

A full and proper review would reveal far too many spoilers.

Maybe in a few weeks, when everyone has seen it, your Uncle PC will post a detailed review.

Until then....

Here is The Blog's bottom line review of "The Dark Knight Rises..."


That is all for now.
