fried chicken and coffee, they're making me mean
have an incurable and chronic disorder. At first I thought I could live in silence and just put on a happy face every day, but I can no longer do that. I need the support and love of my friends if I'm going to live with this terrible affliction. It's called Popeye's Menu Dyslexia, or PMD. I'm not sure when it started, it feels like I've always lived with it. PMD is typified by the habitual tendancy to transpose the number of pieces of chicken you want for the numbered dinner on a Popeye's Chicken menu. Its symptoms include uncontrollable rage coupled with bouts of depression upon learning that you ordered the wrong thing. The following example is a typical Popeye's Menu board:

#1 2pcs chicken dinner
#2 3pcs chicken dinner
#3 4pcs chicken strip/nugget dinner

In the past I have wanted two pieces of chicken, walk right up to the counter and order a #2. Tonight, I wanted a #2 because I wanted 3 pieces of chicken, then proceeded to tell the lady at the counter I wanted a #3. And I never want a #3 because I'm pretty sure those things are made largely of ass. Oh my shame.

Chain wallets are a rather ingenius idea when you think about it. I don't know how many times a week I've nearly left my wallet in some strange place due to absent mindedness. I've considered getting one, but decided against it; I can't afford to lose that many pairs of pants on a weekly basis.

A buddy of mine claims to have "pants pocket morals." When the pants come off, the morals are left behind.

Hahahah, that's great.

I smiled when I read the subject line. :D

They played Cincinnati on the 20th and I was home and forgot all about it until it was too late.

Dude, just order a large red beans and rice with biscuits from now on, that shit is the BOMB!


Why can't Soopageek simply order "two piece chicken dinner"? What is this thing with ordering "number 1" or "number 2"? Is it so difficult to say "two piece chicken dinner" or "three piece chicken dinner"? Are we so lazy that we can't say five syllables?

The people behind the counter may not understand more than "#1" or "#2"

In total agreement with hockeyfag... when you go off the numbering system you just confuse the clerk.

Do you want to be part of the problem or part of the solution?

Oh yeah I know, I get that as a side, or the Cajun rice which is pretty good, too. I'm a southern boy though, gotta have my fried chicken.

WTF?! Someone in the LJ_Idol competition was talking about Popeye's the other day. Gah. THERE ISN'T A POPEYE'S IN THIS AREA!!!

I'd much prefer to have better access to KFC, but Popeye's has become well entrenched in one of the major truckstop chains. Popeye's chicken is alright, and they have some great side-foods, but I'd much rather have the Colonel any day.

As if you generally wear pants in the first place.

Welfy within 15 mile radius = Soop sans pants. *g*

I'm like a newscaster, most of the time the public can't see me from below my chest anyway, so I can do whatever I want. You haven't lived until you've drive 3,000 miles with no pants on.

I have one thing to say...

If you lose your pants, take pictures.
