Heart Attack Grill’s ‘spokesman’ dies of heart attack. OK, so truth in advertising isn’t always a good thing.

Eat like a man die like a man.

Well, I don’t care what people eat, or how they choose to die. But I also don’t like gluttony, so I have little sympathy for people who keel over after eating that kind of stuff. However, I can say unequivocally that I would much rather have a city full of Heart Attack Grills than NYC with it’s disgusting Nanny Bloomberg.

Oh dear – I just looked at the Heart Attack Grill website, and I have to say that I would LOVE to taste their french fries. They are cooked in pure lard! I bet they are amazing. The burgers just look “eh” though.

I wonder what fries cooked in bacon fat would taste like? Besides delicious. Anyway, I am pretty much in favor of “anything in moderation”, lol.

We went there last time we were in Vegas. Karmaa, you called it exactly correct. The burgers are good, and big, but not the best burger around. The fries ARE delicious though. And the cuties in nurse’s outfits serving it all up, VERY nice.

Pure lard? If Nanny Bloomberg reads this he’ll probably have a heart attack.

Oh, and I want my lard fries in a styrofoam “to-go” container, please…

After a respectable amount of time, they should promote the restaurant with a picture of him in his casket, with a smile on his face.

Exactly. A burger and fries a couple times a month isn’t going to kill you. But Americans could benefit from broadening their palates and eating some real food instead of burgers, fries, fried chicken, fish, oreos, twinkies and Funnel Cakes. I agree that some foods are an aquired taste, but just because you hated it at 10 doesn’t necessarily mean you will still hate it. ANd some stuff may look icky ( a plate of cheese enchilada with chili con carne, rice beans and tortilla look like its already been eaten once) but is delicious. Try it. You just might like it!

Just had Fajitas Tejanas (Beef, Chicken, and Shrimp) for dinner tonight with refried beans, shredded cheese, Spanish Rice, etc. Now suffering from major heartburn! My wife had the white enchiladas.

Precisely, Rose. I grew up never even tasting broccoli, because you can’t get it in a can. My mom was big on canned veggies. Now, I can’t get enough of the stuff. Same with brussel sprouts, asparagus, cauliflower, all freshly cooked. I love it!

I also grew up not knowing the wonder of hot, spicy foods. Not now. I eat raw jalapenos like candy.

“I eat raw jalapenos like candy.”
Me too, and don’t forget the hand washing thing :P

Handwashing IS mandatory, you could rub your eyes and it’s painful. Not as painful as if you forget to wash up before having sex with your lady. She’ll hurt you bad.

He who lives by the sword, what?

So I wonder if this will prompt another wave of outrage from leftards demanding “action” and laws to prevent risky, self-destructive behavior.
Hmm, yeah, now about those San Francisco “bath-houses”….

I’ve practiced self destructive behaviors all my life. I never expected to live this long.

I meant Chicago bath houses (the kind Obama supposedly hung out in), not Chicago steak houses. Which are probably the only good thing to ever have come from Chicago. (The steak houses – not the bath houses.) Oh wait – Chicago pizza is good too…

Well, I tried to fillet my thumb with a razor knife today, does that count as risky behavior?

No poppa, just bad judgement.

BTW poppa, don’t take my comment personal. Any time my stepfather reached for a knife for any reason other than eating, we grabbed the first aid kit.

I am pretty sure we kept Johnson and Johnson in the band-aid business for a good while.

Thanks for the great memory oodd. We adopted two stray kittens when I was a kid and I got to name them. One was ‘Johnson’, the other ‘and Johnson’. That one still gets talked about at reunions from time to time.

Probably led to me naming a Siamese Himalayan kitten when my youngest was little Yeti, and swearing if I ever have a Dalmatian you can forget Sparky, I’m naming it Arson.
