Proof That Arby’s is an Atheist-Owned Chain December 28, 2008

Proof That Arby’s is an Atheist-Owned Chain

Perhaps you’ve seen ads for Arby’s restaurants lately, like the really disturbing one where the wife fulfills her husband’s bedroom fantasy by dressing up like an Arby’s server…

Anyway, the slogan in this ad and others is “I’m thinking Arby’s”:

Reader Lisa discovered that Arby’s really takes that slogan seriously.

She drove past a local one and saw this:

There’s only one letter being illuminated in the logo.

It’s the Scarlet A!

This can only mean one thing.

Arby’s must be an atheist-owned chain.

(Kind of like how Chick-fil-A is a Christian-owned one.)

As Lisa puts it, this puts a whole new spin on that “I’m Thinking” campaign: They really are!

    I know it’s filed under humor, but even that’s a stretch.

    Slow news day?

  • But Arby’s stole Rahm Emanuel’s middle finger. Arby’s can’t be Atheist! No Atheist would hurt my beloved Rahmmie Pooh!

  • Todd

    That, or proof that they’re a bunch of a-hats.

  • Thanks for reminding me never to set foot inside another Chick-fil-A. I have no interest in supporting superstition.

  • I’m thinking Arby’s won’t like being labeled an atheist-owned company. I hope your blog is small enough not to attract enough attention for them to file a lawsuit. I don’t think they would have a good case, but they might file as part of a publicity campaign designed to prove that they are not atheist-owned.

    I would switch to Christianity if they could cook up a baby as tasty as a chick fil a nugget.

  • I’ve always liked Arby’s; I guess this is why.

    But I can’t really agree with Sam, though.

    Baby over a spit beats fried baby any day.

    I’m sorry, but I absolutely love that commericial.

  • TXatheist

    vjack and I are both Chick-fil-A free. I haven’t eaten there in almost a decade.

  • joe in oklahoma

    i didn’t notice the A so much as how much the “hat” is phallic.

  • Peter

    Or maybe the manager of that one is an Adulterer.

  • drdave

    But…but…but…

    The “A” in Chic-Fil-A…..

    Its the “A” … the red slanty A.

    That must mean both Arbys and Chic_Fil_A are atheist owned.
