How Does Decatur Not Have A TGIF?

Men's Health updates it's list of worst foods:
  • The Worst Food in America of 2009: Baskin Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake, 2,600 calories, 135 g fat ... "more than a day's worth of calories and three days worth of saturated fat, and, worst of all, usually takes less than 10 minutes to sip through a straw."
  • Worst Sandwich of 2009: Quizno’s Tuna Melt (large), 2,090 calories, 175 g fat ... "Puts tuna’s healthy reputation on the line. A large homemade sandwich would likely provide one-fourth of the calories."
  • Worst Salad of 2009: T.G.I. Fridays Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad, 1,360 calories, Fat: unknown ... "Six out of the seven (TGIF salads) we analyzed topped out with more than 900 calories, which means that lunchtime can be the start of something big—namely, your belly."
  • Worst Burger of 2009: Chili’s Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing, 2,040 calories, 150 g fat ... " ... Two-and-a-half day’s worth of fat—a full third of which is saturated. To do that much damage with roasted sirloin, you’d have to eat about eight 6-ounce steaks."
Complete list here.

Chilis is on that list a bit too much! (Fajitas, kids menu, last year's awesome blossum)

Feh. You know that all the calories on the Chili's Big Kahuna burger (or whatever it was called) are all in the bread.

This followup post is to reassure you that I was kidding.

WordKyle,

A quote from Good Morning Vietnam applies here because you are like the lame DJ telling bad jokes in that movie.

"Your in more dire need of a blowjob than any white man in history."

That's a bit strong 10:52, but he IS a blowhard. Somehow that word even sounds porno.

Kingfish - I can't disagree with you. (Besides, everyone knows that the calories are all in the sesame seeds.)

1105 - "Blowhard" seems a bit strong...but I am in the communications field, so it's sort of an occupational hazard.

Because saturation point already reached for bad restaraunts?

Kingfisher, nice dress. You should pose next to your 74 Pinto that your trying to sell on Ebay.

Bad restaurants? Who wants to live forever? Life won't be longer eating nothing but healthy food, it will certainly seem longer though. Heading out to Chilis...that bacon cheeseburger sounds like just the thing for dinner. Maybe a beer to wash it down.

Re: The Cholis Big triple bacon whatever burger...


The (I think) Applewood smoked bacon is the best bacon in the history of bacon!!! Thick, chewy and sweet!

Also, one of the best burgers of all time is the wendy's bacon ultimate cheeseburger...

I think I have a bacon fetish...:)

By the way, Kingfish...

The quote about blowjobs in Good Morning, Vietnam WASN'T spoken toward the DJ telling bad jokes (your words), but rather the mean guy who was Robin Williams' Commanding officer.

If you're going to take a swipe at people, at least make sure your references are accurate. It makes you look idiotic when you don't.

Love,
Gern
