Eat More Possum

I just noticed the popular southern phrase “Eat More Possum” is referenced in a legal analysis of the Chick-fil-A “Eat Mor Chikin” claim against “Eat More Kale

Here you can watch Jerry Jeff Walker sing it in 1984, at 1:50

The punk band Antiseen published an entire album called Eat More Possum in March 1993 with a cover image of a dead and bloody possum on asphalt.

That means it was not long after the Antiseen Eat More Possum album was released Chik-fil-A hired a $1 billion dollar ad agency that came up with Eat Mor Chikin.

The ad agency might have thought the common phrase, found on album and video, unlikely to be uncovered by their client in 1995 but today the prior art is easily found online.
