What's in a buffet

The AP reports that a couple was kicked out of a buffet in Taylorsville, Utah near Salt Lake City when the husband went up for his 12th slice of roast beef at the Chuck-A-Rama.

Sui Amaama, an Atkin's dieter who was embarrassingly denied his meat, said "We went in to have dinner, we were under the impression Chuck-A-Rama was an all-you-can-eat establishment.'' Jack Johanson, the restaurant chain's district manager, said no, not quite: "We've never claimed to be an all-you-can-eat establishment. Our understanding is a buffet is just a style of eating." Considering it is America and Amaama considers himself to have a legitimate beef, we should be expecting litigation soon.

That reminds me of Homer Simpson's lawsuit against the all-you-can eat fish restaurant where he was refused service, and then went home and ate a bag of flour.

I prefer Lionel Hutz's lawsuit against the film "The Never-Ending Story" for false advertising.

I love the Atkins Diet. Any diet that sanctifies eating a 40 oz. Porterhouse Steak is alright in my books.

What's everyone staring at?
