Chicken v. Kale

NPR's All Things Considered on Dec. 6 had an amusing story about trademark protection. A man who makes his living selling t-shirts with the message "Eat More Kale" is being sued by a company, Chick-fil-A, which accuses him of infringing its trademark, "Eat Mor Chikin." 3 min 13 sec, transcript available
(warning: one little mistake on the transcript - a spoonful of egg should be a spoonful of ink).
You can find out why the artist has a southern accent quite different from that of the governor's by visiting the site, especially here.
What's kale? Look here.
