Chick-Fil-A.

It shouldn't come as any surprise after the big lie they told about the Muppets yesterday, but today the site Gizmodo has helped out an ardent support of Chick-Fil-A, allegedly a teenage girl, as a fake.

Just check out this back and forth on Chick-fil-A's Facebook page between real, breathing people and "Abby Farle", a Facebook account that was made 8 hours ago by a chicken PR flack with a stock image of a teenage girl as her profile picture:

Yes, the preview image in the Facebook conversation differs, but an image identical to the avatar is clearly visible here.

Really? Sock puppets, Chick-Fil-A? That's just lame.

I had noticed they seem to have an army of enthusiastic supporters defending them on postings. Their stories on Facebook and Huffington Post and elsewhere attract many more "good Christians" defending them than similar postings on Starbucks or General Mills. Perhaps they've outsourced some PR work to Opus Fidelis, the new media marketing company that works on behalf of National Organization for Marriage, on their social media presence.

It's kind of sad and pathetic, really.

Update: Of course, there is a meme already:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
