Now they can call it Ashes

I thought they caught the guy who'd been trying to burn down San Jose?
 
2014-01-19 01:29:16 AM
So, it was a flamer?

Is this irony?

And for extra snarkiness, this seems to fit the theme:

Good thing its not called the Earthquake Cafe, or there would be a lot more damage.

A LOT more.

In the early 2000's The Calgary Flames scored a goal on the San Jose Sharks in the Stanley Cup finals. The ref said there was no goal... but the above net replay was never shown. Most rational hockey fans see this as a fact that it was obvious the Flames were ripped off.

NHL comissioner Gary Bettman has stated that he only cares about expanding the NHL to the states.

/In other words
//Most Americans don't care
///Because most Canadians don't care about justice they don't care either

I heard an Amish guy got caught in the deep fryer.

One of those employees was the chef, Mark Paquin, who said that the walls started sharking....

Sounds like an insurance scam. The restaurant has been there 20 years...definitely due for an upgrade.

Wow.  2 threads in one week on San Jose.  Gosh, that's neat.

As long as Original Joe's is still there, who cares?

'One of those employees was the chef, Mark Paquin, who said the wall started sharking and when he ran to the front of the restaurant, there were flames. '
the wall was 'sharking?"

I use to eat breakfast there a lot, crazy things afoot right now in SJ.

"San Jose restaurant The Firehouse goes up in flames" -- THAT might get you in the ballpark, submitter.

Ah, another thread where people who don't know what irony is attempt to correct others as to its meaning.

Get a life, wanker. You're now farkied as a "know it all, pedantic wanker."

THey just renamed it. It's "Smolders" now.

Trying to remember what it was before Flames.   Some other diner chain.

That's the power of human consciousness, for good or for bad. Even with the baddie in custody, the residual fear has the ability to materialize those fears.

San Jose is in the top ten US cities in population. It's a somewhere. It really is.

The walls started sharking. Is that a shout-out to San Jose's hockey team?

If Flames was destroyed in a Flood, that's Irony!

The roof suggest to me Pizza Hut.  I'm not from there, but iconic roofs speak to me.

This, or ice damage.  Where's obvious tag?

It's like a black fly in my chardonnay.

It would have been ironic if the place were called Fireproof.

Does this mean I should cancel my plans to eat at Sizzler too?

There used to be a bar in Flint, MI known as "Embers Lounge"

Yes, used to be, because it burned down.

What a terrible name for an eating establishment.  Was one of their dishes called Jooish Lightning?

Nah, shaking is when things go up in flames during the Stanley Cup playoffs

I hear the law requiring commercials be at same volume as there shows must not apply to online content.

Been going to that spot what seems like forever, even when it used to be a Bob's Big Boy back in the 70s.  Must be the work or Sarah Winchester, the shopping complex across the street went up in flames as well.  Too bad it wasn't the movie complex in the same parking lot, it's about 20 years overdue for an overhaul

Try almost 50 years.  Not sure who owns that land, but it's worth far more than any restaurant, no need for an insurance scam to cash in on that

The diner actually hosted more visiting hockey teams, there's a fancy hotel across the street that occasionally gets visiting NHL teams.  Local airport has a 10pm curfew so most teams are stuck in SJ overnight.

Wrong location, this one is on Hillsdale at Camden. You're thinking of the one on Winchester.
