Who You Calling a Chicken?

A Chinese Fried Chicken Chain Is Reportedly Being Investigated for Having a Sexual Name

Via: Fortune

We haven’t checked with General Tso, but apparently, “chick,” or “chicken,” is slang for prostitute in Chinese. So be careful what you order over there. (We heard it was dog.)

Authorities are investigating a Shanghai-based fried chicken chain for possible violations of social order over its sexually suggestive name – “Call a Chick” – and menu items, the Shanghai Daily reported on Tuesday. The newspaper said the restaurant offered menu items that included “virgin chick” (spring chicken) and “chick’s sex partner” (beverages), among others. It also ran a suggestive promotion slogan titled “Satisfying all your expectations over chicks.”

The newspaper said Call a Chick first came under fire in the western province of Sichuan when a woman complained to the media after her 8-year-old son kept asking her its meaning. The Shanghai Industrial and Commercial Administrative Bureau said it had launched an investigation, the newspaper said.

“The content involved could violate social order,” it quoted Li Hua, deputy director of the advertisement department of the bureau, as saying.

Laws ban advertisements that undermine public order or violate ethical standards. Offenders allegedly face fines of up to 1 million yuan ($145,135) and can have their business license revoked.
