Chick-fil-A giving free meals to people dressed as cows

    Friday is Cow Appreciation Day, and if that alone weren’t odd enough, Chick-fil-A is giving free meals to customers dressed as cows.

    It’s an admittedly clever gimmick for the fast food restaurant, which advertises its meals by using cows to encourage people to eat chicken.

     

    So if you’re looking for a free meal to start your weekend, you better have your black and white ready. Dress like a cow, and you’re good to go. Don’t have a costume handy? Chick-fil-A has a kit and an iPhone app to help you out.

    Here are some of the best costumes from last year, in case you’re feeling competitive.
