Poultry-related anti-American street crime is up 100 percent on the mean streets of Manchester, Connecticut…
[Eric] Didio, 23, an employee of Boston Market restaurant, was cavorting in his bright yellow costume, waving a small American flag to passersby on Pleasant Valley Road, when a brazen thief interrupted his chicken-hawking.
"He was standing out here, doing his little chicken dance, and a guy hopped out of a car stopped at the light, ran over here, grabbed the flag and took off," restaurant general manager Nathan Atwood said…
The emergency dispatcher could not relay the entire call, twice breaking into laughter while trying to say, "chicken suit."
If I hear one more story about a guy jumping out of a car to steal a tiny American flag from a restaurant chain mascot I think I'm going to scream.
When will it end?!
