The name of the restaurant is being purposefully left out of this entry. Locals will probably figure it out, but it is not my intent to badmouth the restaurant, it is merely a societal commentary.
The other day, Superhusband and I drove down to a burger joint near where I grew up. It’s a great place; the prices are reasonable, the staff is polite, the serving size is generous. If you want something fried, broiled, or on a bun, they probably have it there.
We finished ordering our food in the drive-thru, and pulled into a parking spot. While eating our food, I kept glancing over at the electronic sign displaying their specials. It cycled through several deals… discounts on double cheeseburgers, shakes, mentions of local events. But there was one that almost made me drop my food.
“OUR ICE CREAM IS HEALTHY” the sign declared, “96% FAT FREE!”
