Martin Kessman and I have something in commonâ¦ we love burgers.Â But heâs a little larger than I am, and the 290 pound New York man is upset at White Castle â¦.because he finds it hard to fit into their booths. Â Â He was so incensed that heâs filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court.Â Oh, the humiliation.Â Oh, the annoyance.Â We get it.Â But do we have to sue everyoneâ¦ over every little annoyance?Â Mr. Kessman says, âI just want to sit down like a normal person.âÂ Hereâs an ideaâ¦ if you want to sit down like a normal person, Â spend a little more time becoming one.Â How âbout a walk around the block once in a while?
I thought this was a joke but I was wrong. Â Â The UK Daily Mail is reporting that Susanne Eman, an Arizona mother of two boys, tips the scales at more than 700 pounds.Â She doesnât want to lose weightâ¦ she wants to put it on, and become the fattest human in history.Â Thatâs right, her âgoalâ is 1600 pounds.Â Sheâs currently consuming around 22,000 calories a day, and her breakfast menualone could feed 60 people.Â âThe bigger I get, the better I feel,â says Susanne.Â âI feel more confident and sexy.Â Why shouldnât I push the limits and see how fat I can get and stay healthy?âÂ Woman, you are not overweight.. or fat.. or obese. Â You are bat$##t crazy!
You may have seen this WSBTV storyout of Midway, Georgia.Â The cops have put the squeeze on a lemonade stand run by three girls, who were trying to raise money to go to a water park.Â Apparently the girls needed business and food permits ($50 a day), even if the stand is at a residence.Â In other words, selling lemonade in your yard is illegal.Â Yes, I realize cities are strapped for cashâ¦ who isnât?Â But come onâ¦ Way to put a damper on the entrepreneurial spirit.Â Iâll bet they wouldnât have done this to The Little Rascalsâ¦
Thereâs a story out of Monroeville, Pennsylvania thatâs causing a bit of a stir.Â It seems McDainâs Restaurant is not going to be confused with the other McDâs anytime soon.Â Starting tomorrow, kids under 6 will no longer be admitted.Â The owner says âtheir volume canât be controlled and many, many times, they have disturbed customers.âÂ Okay, little ones can be a little noisyâ¦ such is life.Â But Iâm not sure if I like banning people under a certain age or over a certain age.Â What Iâd love to see isâ¦. banning people who are annoying.Â You knowâ¦ if youâre obnoxious, rude, condescending..Â youâre out.Â One day, there may be a simple scanner at the entrance.. a jackass detector.Â Most people just walk through it, no problem.Â Come on in.Â But you?Â Oh, ohâ¦ you have jackass tendencies.Â Thatâs not a crimeâ¦ you just canât eat here.Â I think the rest of us would appreciate it.Â

With the help of the Food Network shows and other exposure, thereâs no shortage of Food Truck entrepreneursâ¦ and fans these days. Â Â And this despite downtown Sacramentoâs strict ordinances against the kind of mobile foodie scene you might find in Portland, San Francisco or LA. Thanks to Chris Maciasof the Bee, Â I understand that the newly formed Sacramento Food Truck Alliance has started to organize weekly festivals, slightly beyond the downtown limits.Â Thursday night spots have included Tognottiâs Auto Worldâs parking lotâ¦ and tonightâs edition (from 5 - 8pm) Â will be at Mel Rapton Honda on Fulton, near the Capital City Freeway.Â Local vendors will include Mini Burger, Drewskiâs Hot Rod Kitchen, Mama Kim, Chandoâs Tacos and the Leaven & Earth Sandwich Co.Â Hey, that sounds like some good eatin.â
