The Atlanta Braves have revealed a new marketing partnership with the aptly-named, chicken filet restaurant Chick-Fil-A, where they installed a huge, mechanical tomahawking cow on top of the roof of the right field pavilion at Turner Field. The cow is part of a promotional scheme we Atlantans are very familiar with. Chick-Fil-A has billboards all over town featuring cows that encourage you to “eat more chikin.”

Coincidentally, I was at the game on Friday, and the consensus was: “Whoa, where’d that cow come from? It’s doing the Chop!”

Behold, the mechanical tomahawking cow in all its politically incorrect glory:

A funny fact about Chick-Fil-A, they close on Sundays, which is a policy that has carried over since the founder wanted to make sure his employees had time to worship.

Which makes me wonder, Would Jesus do the Tomahawk Chop?

    No way. I’m a huge Braves fan, but I don’t do that racist-ass chop bullshit.

  2. I’m not so sure that’s the Tomahawk Chop. There’s at least a little of the Heil Hudson in there.
