I know, I was there in 2002 on a business trip with my previous employer. It seems that our office was literally in the midst of chain hell, but....it was across the street from the Padres spring training park. So we did get to see a game against Anaheim. Little did we know, Anaheim would win the world series later that the season!

    An opossum walked into Arby's a little while ago and ordered a roast beef sandwich. The fastfood clerk behind the counter asked whether he wanted some horseysauce for the roast beef sandwich and the opossum said, "No thanks, I never put condiments on roadkill."

                  The $1.53 gas price looks nostalgic now.

                    Pursuing breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches is getting old hat and I've been everywhere anyway. Road fooding is tedious as well causing one to have to drive so far in this day and age of high gasoline prices. It's back to Big Macs for me.

                        This thread is beginning to remind me of Groundhog's Day, without Sonny and Cher.

                        but seroiusly, I give up being opinionated, long posts, and arguing my point to death....ha ha... April Fool's - I can't believe you fell for that!

                                    I think we have exhausted everything that could be said about roadfood since you can find it all just by searching the database. From now on in this forum I will only discuss fast food and more specifically Waffle House and White Castle, ketchup on a hot dog and the Orion cooker. If I get bored I might condescend to discussing social tea biscuits with you all.

                                      This just in from the Portland, RI "Logbook" : 

                                      Court records unsealed yesterday revealed that well known  long time Rhode Island resident, Dale "Wandering Jew" Hussain , 12 years ago was  secretly married to the widow of Ray Kroc, owner of the McDonalds franchise operations. After only 3 months the marriage ended in a bitter divorce.  

                                      According to  persons close to Mr Hussain this revelation of his brief marriage to the McDonalds fortune explains his unrelenting single minded obsessive disdain  of  all food  franchises. 

                                      Cheers, John

                                            I wish I'd remembered just what today was this morning at 6:45 when my partner woke me up to tell me there was a white rabbit in our kitchen then proceeded to laugh when in a state of sleepiness I got up to look!

                                                So that's why wanderingjew lost fifty-bucks in a bet with his friend David Gest.

                                                      This just in from the Portland, RI "Logbook" : 

                                                      Court records unsealed yesterday revealed that well known  long time Rhode Island resident, Dale "Wandering Jew" Hussain , 12 years ago was  secretly married to the widow of Ray Kroc, owner of the McDonalds franchise operations. After only 3 months the marriage ended in a bitter divorce.  

                                                      According to  persons close to Mr Hussain this revelation of his brief marriage to the McDonalds fortune explains his unrelenting single minded obsessive disdain  of  all food  franchises. 

                                                      Cheers, John

                                                        That all sounds to me like a Kroc of $h!t.

                                                            It's in Bowling Green, Ky. Not only is the mac&cheese pizza to die of, the employees scream out  a welcome when you walk in the door, as though you were a long dead rich relative, coming back one last time to disburse largesse upon the masses.
