Free food, travelers. Let's plan our day. From 7-10:30 this morning participating Mickey D's gave free Southern Style Chicken Biscuits if you bought a medium or large drink. Then, from 10:30 to 7 this evening they're giving away free Southern Style
Chicken Sandwiches -- again if you buy a drink.
Still thirsty? Our pals at Dunkin' have declared this Free Iced Coffee Day. From 10 to 10 you can walk into any participating store, sidle up to the bar, and score a 16-ouncer.
Free food and coffee is a sweet thing -- and the whole experience is only enhanced if you manage to sneak out of work to get it.

  1. It's "iced," not "ice."

  1. Don't they have guards at Morrissey Blvd trying to prevent the talented folks from running away? Anyhoo, I like coffee, too.

  1. Sweet. Let's all hop in our cars and waste some more gas so that we can stuff our overweight faces with some free, fat laden fast food.

  1. who cares enough to correct the phrase "iced coffee"?! some people have too much time on their hands. find something else to do.

  1. Steve is what we'd like to call a Negative Ned. It's free stuff.
    Just cool it, Steve.

  1. No, we should walk there and back to save gas AND get our exercise before stuffing our faces!

  1. No, actually it's called being a realist. In general we are a very fat and very lazy society that prefers to pop pills to try and cure all of our health problems brought about by our fattness and laziness.

    We have 5% of the world's population and consume 25% of the worlds energy. If you think $125 a barrel oil, $4 gas and sky high food prices are painful now, just wait. There are 1.3 billion Chinese (and the rest of the developing world) that are slowly moving up the economic ladder. These people are starting to want cars, more western type diets and all the gadgets we take for granted. This will put a huge strain on our natural resources. Best to start learning how to cut back now, as there will be a massive shift in wealth from the West to the East.

    But go ahead, keep concerning yourself about Tom and Giselle and getting excited over a free sandwich that will cost you $1 any other day.

  1. hijack a car and fill the gas tank with ICED coffee. then stuff your big mac in the tailpipe! live green mofo's

  1. well when you charge $3 for a beverage that's mostly ice you have to do stuff like this from time to time. I'll take it tho and the free friend chicken sandie!

  1. I agree with Steve. You are the man. There are times when we do some really screwed up stuff in this country.

  1. Who brought Debbie Downer?

  1. I am going to go steal a Hummer and then drive to every dunkin' and McD's in Boston just to piss off steve.... Whos with me?

    Posted by T May 15, 08 11:39 AM
  1. It's "Gisele", Steve, not "Giselle".


    I'm just kidding. Really. Don't hurt me.
    I know DD's is crap, but where's the "fun" in
    the Green movement. Don't forget about fun.
    We need things to be fun, too. It may seem trite
    not to be obsessed with deep-dark problems with the
    world, but without the fun, you lose a lot of votes.

    I have an idea: get the free sandwich and launch them at unsuspecting
    (parked, of course. don't cause an accident!) SUVs!
    Now THAT sounds like fun.

    And then eat a carrot. That's what I'm doing and it's pretty fun, you know?

  1. who cares enough to question someone correcting a spelling error?
    And, it worked, 'cause they corrected it!
    (sticking my tongue out at workchick!)

    yes I'm bored

  1. honestly, Steve if you have enough time on your hands to sit at your computer and "argue" or whatever it is you think you doing. I've got some insight for you that will change your life. No One Cares. shocking i know but the truth hurts. So why don't you get up off of your Lazy butt, and i don't know, go get an iced coffee or something. I hear they're free at dunkin's?

  1. Um, there is no fat in iced coffee (unless, of course, you add cream or milk)...
