How very weird ...

I mentioned today that since it's July 11th (7/11), it should be National Slurpee Day ... and that 7/11 should give away free Slurpees. Come to find out, it is ... and they are. And there is a website devoted to the frozen treat. Thanks to a listener for sending me the information on that.

Okay, but that's not the weird part. Apparently, it's also National Cow Appreciation Day, a gimmick by Chick-Fil-A trying to get customers to "Eat Mor Chikin." According to the website, if you dress like a cow, you can get free food. The website gives tips on how to dress like a cow without going out and getting a cow costume.

So here's my idea, dress up like a cow. Go get some free "chikin" and then head over to 7/11 for a free Slurpee.

Thanks to all the listeners who texted and IM'd cow names during Reason. Post more ideas for cow names on the forum ... where I wholly encourage you to read the post entitled "scott leffler is a fag yankee." That post actually violates my "no flaming or personal attacks" rule, but since it is against me, I'm going to let it slide.
