There are some mysteries in life that I will never truly understand.
You know, things like when time began, who taught the first teacher, or why some people are so obsessed with Raising Cane's chicken fingers.
Seriously, I just don't get it. It's not that they're bad chicken fingers, but I've definitely had better. I'd take Zaxby's or Slim Chickens or even Chick-Fil-A over Cane's. Based on the drive-thru lines at NW 63rd and May, I don't think I'm the only one who feels this way.
I bring all this up because Joe Castiglione's son announced on Twitter today that apparently the world's largest Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is coming to Norman Campus Corner.
Yep, they're replacing a salad shop with a fried chicken chain. I guess you can't get any more Oklahoma than that!
Some people questioned the reporting of the OU athletic director's son. He provided the following receipts:
Being the hard-hitting Internet journalist I am, I did some quick Google research to find out where the largest Cane's is currently located. I was surprised to learn it's on 2nd Street in Edmond, and is simple known as "The Mansion."
First of all, the Mansion is kind of a boring name. The staff should have picked the brains of the employees who came up with the brilliant Nightmare on 23rd Street at NW 23rd and Penn. They're geniuses.
Second, the Norman - Edmond rivalry is reaching new heights thanks to a chicken finger chain! I love to see it.
I guess the obvious follow-up question is "Why does Raising Cains need over 4,000 square feet to build a restaurant?" They only have like five different foods on the menu. What's all the extra space for?
My theory is they need it to store all the Spencer Rattler merchandise they printed last season:
Anyway, I guess we'll monitor this situation as it fries away. Stay with The Lost Ogle. We'll keep you advised.
