… huh?  What does that mean?  It’s the only sign on the pole, so this most unmistakably belongs to the McDonald’s location.

Possible taglines could be:

  • Come in and get your last processed meat before Lent!
  • Giving up clogged arteries for Lent?  Ask about our last-minute special!
  • Why give up nutrition for Lent?

I’ll never know.. I’m tempted to just walk in and ask them what that means, straight from the mouth of a cashier.  If I do, I’ll be sure to post the reply here 😛

Perhaps you sparked some interest cause now they’re charging for it.

Always know it’s Lent when the Filet-O-Fish marketing quadruples.

The Lent Special is 2 Filet-O-Fish sandwiches for $3 (or $4 depending on location). Many people don’t eat red meat during lent so McDonald’s cashes in on the practice!
