In-and-Out Burger CEO Nails 95 Menu Items to the Door of Chick-Fil-A Headquarters
[ATLANTA, GA] – In the wee hours of a brisk November morning in Atlanta, In-and-Out Burger CEO Lynsi Snyder nailed 95 menu items to the door of Chick-Fil-A’s corporate headquarters.
Snyder collapsed on the lawn at roughly 1:30 in the morning after shouting, “TO BE CHRISTIAN WITHOUT HAMBURGERS IS NO MORE POSSIBLE THAN TO BE ALIVE WITHOUT BREATHING!”
A Georgia State University student captured the entire event on his cell phone, briefly interrupting his quarter-mile scooter ride from the campus library to his dormitory.
After scooting 50 feet over to the nailed menu, the student said, “Holy Cow! I think I just witnessed the lighting of the char-grilled flame of the Fast Food Reformation!”
In-and-Out’s Christian roots date back to 1948, when the company was founded after Lynsi’s grandfather, Harry Snyder, painstakingly translated Chick-Fil-A’s menu into the bovine language of the people. The hamburger chain continues to print scripture verses on the bottom of its beverage cups.
Only time will tell whether this event becomes the defining moment of evangelical fast food worship practices, but one thing is clear: there is a burgeoning rift between the religious chicken and beef sects of the Christian faith.
