No one is particularly amused by Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy's insistence on denouncing marriage equality, but a few Hollywood types (goddamn liberals!) have taken the opportunity to roast the fried chicken chain on TV.

Conan O'Brien is among them, and last night on his show he reintroduced the audience to Chaz, the Intolerant Chick-Fil-A Chicken. Chaz has a penchant for overtly sexual puns, between which he reminds viewers that being gay is bad, m-kay?

"Happy Chick-Fil-A appreciation day, ladies and gentlemen!" says Chaz, "but not gentlemen and gentlemen -- that's wrong in the eyes of God."
