The Slice

Never been a big fan

Of fast-food commercials that depict livestock as supposedly humorous characters.

Remember the one with the cow adorned with a sign saying “Eat More Chikin” or something like that?

Seems like making a joke of the whole where-our-food-comes-from thing shows a certain contempt for the customer. Or perhaps chains such as Jack In The Box know exactly what they are doing and have focus-group data showing people apt to eat at their restaurants will find this stuff amusing.
