“How’s your Bypass Burger, Lonnie? Lon? Lon!”
That eatery, employing all the knee- slapping humor that life-threatening coronary disease has to offer, serves up a “Quadruple Bypass Burger” to customers, and when they’re finished, a waitress pushes them out to the car in a wheelchair.
If you think I’m making this up, check out our slideshow.
If this place is a success, look for restaurants exploiting the rich humor to be found in brain tumors, Alzheimer’s and third degree burns.
“Sorry sir, our “Big Burn Burger’ only comes well-done…”
I’m guessing the first time a customer actually HAS a heart attack at the Grill and slumps out of his booth dead – the way they eat, that will be sooner rather than later – the other diners are going to have trouble remembering what they thought was so damned funny.
