Chicken Cosmo, lost in space

Unlike my “book deal“, this does not appear to be an April Fools joke:

Penn State: The end of the Cosmo: A Dining Commons tradition runs its course

What was a Chicken Cosmo? It was an ordinary breaded, fried chicken patty on a sandwich. It gained a cult following in the dining commons at the university I attended because…. well, I’m not sure why, but I think the name had a lot to do with it. It sounded very space-age. “I think alumni will be more disappointed than anyone,” says the dining hall director. I guess I’m supposed to be disappointed.

Hats off to the Chicken Cosmo on its final day, today. Check out the Chicken Cosmo graphic on the Penn State Food Services web site.
