Or at least the use of the word “Frickin’” to promote them.Â Michael and Sheri Sucec of Harrisburg, Pa. are calling the word “profanity.” For that reason, they are objecting to a new billboard for Sheetz Crispy Chicken Sandwich.
The couple has complained to the company that owns the billboard, Lamar Advertising, the local zoning commission, and have asked the supervisors in Derry Township to help them find a way to get the billboard removed. Shockingly, the chairman of supervisors has reported that no one else in community seems to object to the billboard.
In response to a letter from Sheetz, describing the use of “Frickin” as a “humorous twist”, Michael Sucec stated at the supervisors meeting:
“We don’t feel or believe that that’s humorous whatsoever…I ask you folks this evening: Do you believe this is humorous?”
My response is yes Michael, it is very humorous. Hilarious actually. Well, it wasn’t originally, but it is now that you’ve started objecting to it. Ironic that your involvement is what ended up making it funny, huh?
So I implore the Susecs, please drop your vicious anti-chicken sandwich agenda and join the ranks of American’s who aren’t part of your slang-hating bourgeois commitment to the English language.
