Respectable Negroes Beware! The Popeye's Fried Chicken Shortage Has Unleashed the Proletariat Against their Social Betters!

Do you now see what the pent up energy that was released by Barack Obama's presidential campaign has wrought? To my eyes, it appears that these folks have had a transformational experience which has increased their sense of political efficacy. At present, the Popeye's crusaders don't have a proper outlet for their (now) activated sense of group consciousness. We as elites best be concerned as the masses rise up against us...a series of events ironically begun by a shortage of fried chicken.

Who would have ever predicted such a thing would come to pass? I say let them eat cake!...Or in this case, a Popeye's biscuit.

A bonus clip: more evidence that Popeye's chicken does indeed bring out the worst in people--

"Social betters?"

Damn, that's harsh.

This story is simultaneously pathetic and hilarious.

You are part of the negro elite, why run from the responsibilities of your greatness young padawan? I have always suspected you of perhaps being a collaborator--just kidding.

I am with the people you know, as I mentioned in an earlier post one of my favorites joys and memories of childhood was eating Popeye's fried chicken that my father stole from one of his clients--I use that broadly, as having a contract to clean a Popeye's restaurant does not make one middle class, but I like the high minded speech. That having been said, yes we are these folks' social betters.
