You know what they say about karma: it's a b*tch. But it teaches lessons that we can't forget. And karma was absolutely served to this ketchup-thief-turned-karma-believer. Have no idea what I'm talking about? You'd better ketchup with the rest of us! Keep on reading.
If your dream is to sit A.C. Slater-style at a booth at the Max, you’re in luck because this pop-up diner inspired by the after-school classic, Saved By The Bell, is coming to town.
Saved By The Max brings the fictional diner from Saved By The Bell to life and offers you a chance to eat just like those hilarious Bayside teens. Based in Chicago, Saved By The Max is a pop-up diner that will soon be heading out on the road. In this video, Mr. Belding himself announces the touring pop-up diner is coming, following “one final semester in Chicago. You don’t even have to be hooked on caffeine pills to enjoy it.

The whole thing looks almost too real compared to the TV show, even if it seems unlikely that the fictional Max would have menu items named after their best customers, such as “A.C. Sliders,” “The Tori Fried Chicken,” and the terribly unimaginative “Mr. Belding’s Fries.” Still, pretty sweet that Tori got a menu item, despite the fact that her stint on the show makes no sense.
The Huffington Post visited their Chicago location a few months ago. Be forewarned, if you’re allergic to dayglo, avert your eyes.
You had me at "cookie fries."
If you've been to the Texas State Fair, you've probably eaten some of Isaac Rousso's famous award-winning treats like his funnel cake fries, deep-fried hash browns stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese, smoky bacon margarita, deep fried Cuban rolls, fried Pop Tarts, and, yes, cookie fries.
Rousso has just won the right to open a restaurant in Plano Wal-Mart next week where he can serve these deep-fried artery-cloggers to Texas' poorest shoppers 365-days a year.
According to Eater Dallas, "The chain is also in talks about a "nation-wide" expansion, which would bring State Fair Treats to Walmart stores across the country depending on how things go in Texas."
Well, as for the cookie fries, they are described as deep-fried cookies that come in flavors like chocolate chip or sprinkles, and are shaped like a French fry and served with strawberry or milk chocolate sauce.
Okay, i'm game for that "nationwide [pants] expansion."
Wal-Mart road trip time.
One of the world's most expensive meals ever (accidentally) signed off on. A man who has chosen to remain anonymous for suspected motivations to retain some dignity, accidentally rang up a $1.3 million dollar meal at Inverurie's Rajpoot Indian Restaurant in Scotland. Before that fat tip, the guy's meal, which included three entrees and drinks came out to be less than $100.
The Evening Express reports that restaurant owner, Abdul Wahid said: "When he came to pay I gave him the card machine and he asked to put in the amount himself but it didn't go through.
"I then had to phone the bank for him and I answered all of the questions and they then gave me the confirmation code.
"At this time he still had the card machine so I never saw the amount he had typed in.
"But 10 minutes later I took the machine and looked at it and I just said 'oh my god what's happened, what have you done my friend'. I looked at the receipt and then he looked at it and he just said 'oh my …'
"He then rang his bank up to say it was the wrong amount and cancel it before paying the correct amount."
"This has to be one of the most expensive meals there has ever been. I have never experienced anything like this. It was really, really shocking,” said Wahid. “I still can’t believe it.”
The owner of the restaurant offered a statement, via Business Insider:
I would like to address the LeSean McCoy tipping situation and our role in it.
For starters, I take total and complete responsibility for sharing this receipt. It was not our server's decision, it was mine. I am to blame.
I decided to take action after some serious thought. And while I'd like to apologize to Mr McCoy, I cannot in good conscience do so. I stand by my actions one hundred percent.
Mr McCoy and his three companions came into my place on Monday afternoon, and immediately the whole staff was excited. Mr McCoy is a skilled athlete and is one of our beloved Philadelphia Eagles. A true Philly legend and a sports hero. Understandably my staff was really pumped, especially on the heels of they terrific win the day before. (Go Eagles!).
Mr McCoy and his friend sat inside at a booth next to my management and next to me. They were given excellent service. Impeccable service. If anything, our server was a little nervous as was our food runner, because they are big, big fans.
He and his group, from the moment they sat down, were verbally abusive to our staff in the most insulting ways. The derogatory statements about women and their sheer contempt for the staff serving them wasn't the end, however. After Mr McCoy and his group left I looked over and saw their server, my friend, with his head bowed down and with a very confused look on his face. I took the receipt out of his hand and I couldn't believe that anyone could be so callous. Mr McCoy had left a .03% tip for our staff. Our staff that was beyond excited to see him walk into our burger joint and was excited to serve him. That's twenty cents on a tab of over $60. Twenty cents that our server has to split with the food runner and the bartender. Two dimes from an insulting multimillionaire.
I bet Mr McCoy is usually an awesome dude. And everyone has their bad days. But I'm from Philly and have had the pleasure of meeting many of our bad ass sports heroes. Ron Jaworski I met as a kid and I love. Iverson I loved. Mike Schmidt! You name 'em. I love all of our athletes past and present. Hometown heroes who treat those below them with some respect. And maybe Mr McCoy was having a "bad day" after his big victory all that, but the reports of him receiving "bad service" is a complete slanderous lie, and my crew here is better than that and deserves better than that.
At the end of the day, I did what I felt my heart told me to do. And I don't want anything from Mr McCoy, but...maybe an apology to his server who gave him excellent service would be cool.
Again, I am the owner and I take full responsibility for my actions. Eagles fans, I feel ya. Id be pissed too. But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do and stick up for his friends.
