A Real Fork Job

Quizzno's is advertising their new line of chopped salads that are so darn special, they are served with "real forks."
1. Why the hell do they call it a 'chopped salad'? Is that opposed to a hand-torn salad? Who cares?
2. If you order one to-go, do you still get a real fork, or are you relegated to a plastic fork, or even worse, a spork?
If their ad agency made more than $100 on these crappy ad concepts, Quizzno's got hosed.
You want to eat a chopped salad with a real fork, go buy a bag of the stuff, take it home and eat it, like all normal people do.
I am not putting on shoes and a bra and burning $8 worth of gas in 100 degree weather to go to Quizzno's so I can sit down and eat chopped lettuce off a Styrofoam plate with a 'genuine' metal fork.
I wish I was a Quizzno's customer so I could boycott them based on this ad campaign.
It's crazy hot outside, I'm just over food poisoning and my sinuses are draining.
Don't fork with me, Quizzno's.

i have to defend the big Q here...
i think "chopped salad" is an actual food term - they didn't invent it...

the fork bit - i'm with you on - i don't get it...

but i like their subs so i'll give them the benefit of the doubt...

i wish, however, they'd bring back the spongmokeys or whatever they were called..

I have actually heard the term before, I was just hoping it wouldn't catch on.
