"Service here felt like the entire restaurant was going in dry."

I hadn't seen such diseased looking pieces of meat since John Holmes sodomized Liberace.

"I've never had service this bad outside a Thai whorehouse"

...and then I put my dick in the mashed potatoes.

So that "coffee tastes like horsepiss" thing was a sexual metaphore? I'm out on that one. Try me again later.

That dining experience was like an evening of chatroulette

Hey, now, don't be so quick.  Let's just have a couple of glasses of non-horsepiss wine and see where the evening takes us.

When someone says something like that,  "coffee tastes like horsepiss", a company should fire back with something like, "It greatly disturbs me that you have engaged in drinking horse urine, and I feel the need to contact the health department regarding your behavior."

Could be funny.

Dear Yelp;

I never though this would happen to me but last weekend I ordered the half roasted chicken...

This spotted dick tastes like spotted dick!

I was sad to find out there something called Yelp Elite.
Of your a Yelp Elite, you should kill yourself. That's like being YouTube Famous and we don't need that either.

The meat looked crusty at first, but turned moist and delicious once I picked off the scabs.

Would have been a better headline if it had been a metaphor, not a simile...

I like Yelp, and haven't noticed anything like that. Question: who the hell, besides the author of this article, thinks that "commensurate" and "sumptuous" are ,as they described "ten-dollar words"?

Idiocracy is here.

I had a gay old time at the all-you-can-eat buffet, which turned out to be a giant sausage fest.

I was told it was that kind of party...

Study Commissioner sees sexual metaphors everywhere they go. Freud seen stroking his beard. Slowly and sensually.

"Bad reviews," Jurafsky explained to Stanford, "seem to be caused by bad customer service rather than just bad food or atmosphere. 


Which is exactly why online reviews are worthless. To me, service is only worth a small part of the overall rating yet people tend to give it more weight than the food itself. Maybe I'm just an understanding type of person but I've never had service from any restaurant that I would call truly horrible.

I'm surprised that replies citing Rush Limbaugh's listeners and producers were not concomitant.
