Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is no fan of Chick-fil-A, but there isn't anything he can do to stop the controversial fast-food chain from opening a branch in the city — and he knows it.

BOSTON, July 26 (Reuters) – Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has waded into the national controversy surrounding fast food chain Chick-fil-A, whose president has publicly opposed same-sex marriage, urging the chicken sandwich sellers to stay out of Boston.

Failed Green Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr said that anyone who eats at Chick-fil-A deserves to get cancer, Twitchy reported Wednesday. "[A]nyone who eats S**t Fil-A deserves to get the cancer that is sure to come from eating antibiotic
