In 9th grade, my friend's mom kept going on and on about this burger place out in the middle of nowhere. They advertised themselves as having the "biggest burgers in bama". 

 

She really, really wanted us to go, but she especially wanted this German exchange student, Alex, that we were friends with to go. The first thing we saw when we got there was a sign that said "Kill Bin Laden". This was only a few months after 9/11. So they placed the burger in front of Alex and he just had this blank stare because it was horrifically oversized and the patty stuck out an inch around the bun. She was getting really giddy and said "He loves it! He's never seen a burger that big!"

it's an optical illusion, they just use smaller buns

I've never been to that Lento. They are a bit pricey and cool. I've heard good things though. We have tons of brunch options around here. Rochester loves their brunch. That place is in a nice little area with tons of other restaurants and shops and psychics.

What do people think of those menus with just a number and no currency symbol or pennies in the price? E.g.

 

Six onion rings        3

 

I think they are TERRIBLE.

 

Awful. You should be allowed to pay whatever you want at the end because the menu didn't state the prices properly.

I got absolutely cucked the other week on holiday when I ordered some drink and then the waitress was saying they've got a new cocktail that isn't on the menu yet and started describing it - cherry and almond liquors and that - sounded like a Bakewell tart, which did sound mmm nice! Then she was like 'Oh, but it costs €2 more, is that okay?' and I said yes it was okay, but now three weeks later I'm still absolutely simmering about because it wasn't okay and I actually wanted what I had originally asked for.

Also when she brought it, I thought it was just a red glass so I put my fingers around it to have a sip and she started laughing at me because it was a clear glass that for some reason had hibiscus powder stuck all over the outside and I was supposed to pick it up by a little bit at the bottom, and I had that shit all over my fingers. How was I supposed to know? Fuck's sake. I can't even remember her name or where it was, otherwise I'd be absolutely destroying her on Tripadvisor.

Anyone else seen this pathetic Tesco thing they started six months ago? Loads of posters and leaflets everywhere with some actors holding a 'family recipe' with some bullshit story about it. There are LOADS! Like this:

 

plc_image_pg.png?anchor=center&mode=crop

 

Anyway, they've obviously tried to include a load of minorities (although not in the obvious way, e.g. a white man making curry) but they clearly had a meeting recently where they discussed how to make some of them seem gay. How can you do that when for all we know Iain 'Proper' Croque Monsieur or Lisa 'Big Greek' Stew are gay?

 

Here's how. Two fabulous men making ice cream together:

 

Spoiler

Why are there two people in only that recipe and not the others?

 

They must have had another meeting where someone said it just wasn't gay enough, because a week later this one appeared:

 

Spoiler

Get it, they're gay? There wasn't enough room to fit both their gay t-shirts in the shot, but there are photos of them having fun together in the background, see? And they're touching. Because they're gay! A glimpse of a wedding ring. Also a disproportionately large train ticket.

 

The next one will have one man bending the other over the counter.

 

PC gone mad!

Not mad because there's gay people, just mad because they're clearly pandering to gay people

Anyone else get a little bit irritated when they see "pommes frites" on a menu that's written in English? I understand when you see phrases like "au poivre," "amuse-bouches" and the like, but when I see "pommes frites," I can just see someone in the kitchen saying "but we can't serve French fries! we're too fancy for that!", and someone else saying "it's OK, we'll just call them pommes frites." Just serve the food that you want to serve and cut the pretense.
