Cows, chickens and misspelling

Many of us are familiar with the Chick-fil-A cow’s advice  to “EAT MOR CHICKIN”.  The misspelling is an old advertising technique.  It was often used in the early days on signs in front of a business.   The proprietor would deliberately misspell a word or words.  People would stop to tell him about his error, and often buy something.  I was under the impression that Chick-fil-A left chicken characters to its competitors, but this chicken replica is atop a Chick-fil-a in Monroe, Georgia.   We were there Saturday for a 5K race sponsored by the company founded by Truett Cathy.   It was unclear whether the chicken was sittin’ or settin’.
