Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

It can be said that in life, there are times, deep dark times – in which you’re completely out of ideas when it comes to what to eat for lunch. For better or worse, even though you want a salad because it’s the responsible thing to do or you just enjoy the texture of baby corn, sometimes you’re ten feet away from the entrance to the Eastern Avenue / Chester St. Burger King, and you’re … Read entire article »

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER.  YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

Every so often, Checkers offers the “Bacon Philly Cheese Steak Sub”, which looks quite tasty.  I’ve never tried it, but have ingested my fair share of their flagship The BIg Buford, which sounds like a character on The Dukes of Hazzard, or the brand name of an oblong sex device.

If you’re new to the whole issue, which has been going on for well over a year and change, … Read entire article »

One Summer Day After Practice

One Summer Day After Practice

My car was thick with laughter, exhaustion, and the smell of teenage boy. We’d just finished our summer workout. It was too early in the year for football practice to officially begin, but the team captains were holding “summer trainings.” None of the coaches were present, but we all suspected they were being told which players came and which didn’t. The fear was enough to make us show. These unofficial mandatory practices consisted of little … Read entire article »
