Popeyes drops Emotional Support Chicken for hungry travelers
What better way to calm your nerves than through a food coma?
THE FRIED SKIES — Just in time for the hungry holiday season, Popeyes has upped their trolling game by launching "Emotional Support Chicken."
According to Business Insider, the fantastic fried chicken chain dropped the news that its location in Philadelphia International Airport's Terminal C will start selling the chicken on Tuesday for a limited time.
The three-piece tender meal comes in a specially designed, chicken-themed carrier box.
And an added bonus is that it won't annoy every other passenger in your vicinity during the flight.
Emotional support animals have been in the news recently for becoming increasingly strange and, well, just annoying.
According to trade group Airlines for America, the number of emotional-support animals flying the furry skies has skyrocketed 74%, from 481,000 in 2016 to 751,000 in 2017.
In a press release, the company said, "Popeyes decided to offer its own version of 'emotional support animals pushing the envelope' by offering travelers 'Emotional Support Chicken.' The gesture is designed to bring holiday travelers some needed humor to what is one of the most stressful places to be in during the holidays — the airport.
And honestly, what better way to calm your nerves on the flight than with a good old food coma.
