Michigan tag?

People threw trays and punches but no one got hurt

Must have been wimpy punches

2003-11-14 01:15:10 PM  
Punching and tray-throwing, but nobody got hurt? Pansies.

Shoulda used the blizzards. Everyone knows they're the king of fast food weapons. Heavy and solid, but not too cumbersome.
2003-11-14 01:15:25 PM  
Sounds like fun. Hopefully they'll call me before the next event.

Watch out for that baked potato!!!
2003-11-14 01:39:04 PM  
I would've gone straight for the hot fries in the oil vat. Little hot oil will settle a fight real quick.

Wendy's = Frosty.

Good call Jabber. My mind was on the DQ I had for dinner last night. So is my stomach. Ugh.

Oh I sooooo have a dirty mind...

I'm a zit. Get it?

"...not great?!"
2003-11-14 02:35:24 PM  
in my book a "Food Fight" is a fight where food is the primary weapon.
2003-11-14 02:35:25 PM  
Is it me or do all old men in the media look alike?? Every oldie looks like nice old Wilford Brimley.

PS... MMMmmMMMm Brimley

Hey, that's where I was born! Thankfully, we moved shortly after. It's gotten pretty ghetto now, especially downtown Saginaw.

"ultimate"? Tito Ortiz unavailable for comment.
2003-11-14 02:36:30 PM  
I used to work at a fast food place (KFC). I would always hook my friends up. They would come through the drive-thru and order something like "a biscuit and a water". I would end up giving them 3-4 large bags of food. :)

No sh*t! I just moved outta Saginaw in May and now we're finding legs in the woods and food fights at Wendys?? This town was BORING when I lived there, jeesh. I wonder if that is the Bay Rd. location, we used to eat there all the time on lunch hour.

At least in Chicago we have raging fires, high winds, and drive-by shootings. This is living!!!
2003-11-14 02:41:53 PM  
Errr... Can I blame Bush for this?
2003-11-14 02:41:59 PM  
Yo can get arrested for having a food fight, wtf???
2003-11-14 02:42:15 PM  
I hear many had to leave after getting Zesty Italian in their eyes.

"It's ok, I had Subway today!"
2003-11-14 02:49:58 PM  
Screw the baked potatoes. My weapon of choice would have to be the chili. Like throwing a cupful of Napalm...
2003-11-14 02:55:49 PM  
Having tried Wendy's chili, I believe the charges should be increased to attempted murder.
2003-11-14 02:55:49 PM  
Ahhh this reminds me of lunch hour @ highschool.

We had bags of milk, yes bags of milk.

If you grabbed it by the corner, you could fling it shuriken style across the lunchroom, very effective.

Was the Mustard Man available for comment?

"Did someone say FOOD FIGHT?!?"
2003-11-14 02:58:13 PM  
The chili would be a better weapon having passed first through the digestive system. The ensuing fog would cause chaos, while the enemy would be rendered helpless trying to breath the fumes. Choking, eyes burning, they would be in no position to put up a worthy fight.
2003-11-14 03:00:21 PM  
My food fight favourite is pudding or yogurt. Try getting that out of hair and fabric after it dries. And the smell when it heats up *barf*

In a fast food joint, I say a cup of ice cold soda down someone's pants does the trick. Esp at Wendy's, stuff is 75% ice cubes anyhow...

My dad's a TV repair man. He's got the ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
2003-11-14 03:01:15 PM  
Seems unfair. The employees would have acess to more ammo in a food fight.
2003-11-14 03:01:56 PM  
Haven't read the article, but there is no way that the ultimate food fight happened at a Wendy's...
In 1993, while a cadet at the Air Force Academy, I was involved in starting what was probably one of the biggest food fights in history.
No many things can match the sight (or smell) of over 4000 cadets throwing dinner at each other in one giant room.
The administration came down pretty hard on the squadron commanders (seniors) who in turn came down pretty hard on everyone else. Good memories, bad times.
2003-11-14 03:06:50 PM  

1993 seems about right for the year when Air Force beat my beloved Ohio State Buckeyes in the Liberty Bowl. Hats off to Air Force for running a successful service academy program.

Go Army, beat Navy!

That sounds like a lot of fun....

Step 1. Save up for bail money
Step 2. Get van full of angry friends
Step 3. Profit..... i mean, trash a wendy's

Tonight on Fox!

When 99cent nuggets attack!!!
2003-11-14 03:28:10 PM  
Ahhh, reminds me of the time that an all-camp food fight broke out during lunch at the summer camp I was working at. It went on for a long time before anyone could restore order... due in part to us staffers fully participating. Oh the hours of cleanup were so worth it.
2003-11-14 03:28:20 PM  
Food fight?? They're using that word rather loosely based on some of the Wendy's at which I've eaten.
2003-11-14 03:28:24 PM  
This guy got away.....

As a former fast food employee who got fired for attacking customers with food, I'm insulted that the title of Ultimate Food Fight occurs without food even being tossed.

I got to talk to the cops, got a gross misdemeanor fine and lost my job, all over squirting some customers (former employees/same age/same high school) with the caulk gun that shot sour cream and throwing packs of sauce at them. (but only in retaliation of course!)

There was also a guacamole gun involved, but I wasnt responsible for that.

The general manager didn't know until a week later after the story appeared in the local and metro papers.

Nice Better Off Dead reference, EatHam

I remember one time I dropped some peas.

Junin, you didn't by any chance work at a Taco Bell did you?
2003-11-14 03:42:32 PM  
I used to work at the bowling alley on the main strip in this town. The greasy cornhole of America. I'm surprised no one got shot.
2003-11-14 03:46:37 PM  
if you're referring to EatHam's "i'm a zit, get it", that is from Animal House (see Satan'sLittleHelper's pic of belushi)

Nobody hurt? Amateurs.

Hell, when I was younger we completely *trashed* the inside of a Jack's (Jack in the Box). Knew the one guy who worked the late shift, went there, threw all the food and milkshakes we could. Place was covered. Ended up opening the doors and hosing out the inside. The place was actually set up to be cleaned like that.

Joe C, where are ya?

If punches are thrown, you haven't got a food fight. You've got a fight.
