Canadians slaughtered a staggering 640 million chickens in 2014 alone, which makes them by far the largest population of animals under human care.

On Friday, the puppet poultry establishment, Chick-fil-a, released another statement opposing same-sex marriage, this one printed on Mike Huckabee's website. Honestly... you're a chicken store.
