The Light Side of News: Brits eat holes in restaurant profits, get banned

Can we have some more? WE ARE HUNGRY?

This just might be the stupidest headline you read all year: “Pair banned from all-you-can-eat restaurant for eating too much”. This story, coming to us courtesy of the British Telegraph newspaper, is about a pair of oafs who, after causing untold damage to their bodies and the profit margins of a restaurant owner, were banned from the eatery for the rest of their lives.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I mean, how much food must you  eat at an all-you-can-eat  before you are declared a “pig”? If Oliver Twist, somehow came to life, he’d think he died and went to heaven. Where he once pleaded “please sir, I want some more”, he’d now plead “please sir, NO

MORE”.

Seriously though, I beseech local entrepreneurs NOT to go the all-you- can-eat route. I mean, have you seen just how high some people pack their plates at lunch buffets?  ‘SMH’, as young people would say.
