Who knew playing dress-up could lead to such a delicious outcome?

In honor of its 11th annual Cow Appreciation Day, which falls on Tuesday, July 14, Chick-fil-A is offering customers one free meal (an entrée, side and drink)—but there’s a catch.

You must be dressed like a cow.

“Cow Appreciation Day is the one day where it’s okay to dress ‘udderly’ crazy and get rewarded for it,” said Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

If you’re not keen on the idea of dressing in head-to-toe garb, the company will also reward those in partial attire (cow-spotted accessories are acceptable) with one entrée. So, it’s a win-win, no matter your preference.

Last year, the restaurant chain saw 1 million cow-clad customers nationwide, proving once again that people are either super die-hard chicken nugget fans or genuinely look forward to dressing in their best cow-themed ensembles.

I’m sure half the people that go there don’t have to dress up, they just have to walk in.

Hmm on

I would rather starve.
