I Yam What I Yam

In a not-so-veiled shot at emotional millennials, Popeye’s restaurants are selling “Emotional Support Chicken” for travelers in the Philadelphia International Airport.

This is a shot of one of the limited edition Emotional Support Chicken boxes available from the Popeyes in terminal C of the Philadelphia International Airport. Some more info while I go grab myself some emotional support donuts and chocolate milk:

Starting Tuesday and for a limited time, travelers passing through Terminal C of Philadelphia International Airport can purchase the high-flying fowl – a fried chicken meal in a specially designed, chicken-themed carrier box, perfect for taking onto the next flight.

“We know holiday travel can be frustrating, and there’s no better way to ease stress than with a box of delicious Popeyes fried chicken and a good laugh,” said Hope Diaz, the company’s chief marketing officer. At $8.49, the Emotional Support Chicken tenders meal is the same price as its earth-bound kin.

That’s pretty ingenious, and considering the food in PIA is usually somewhere south of horrendous, at least Popeye’s isn’t terrible. I mean, it’s no Chick-Fil-A, but what is?
