And nobody in Chamblee, Georgia can order Domino's without remembering the time a deranged gunman named Kenneth Noid took two employees hostage, believing that the chain's nationwide "Avoid the Noid" advertising campaign was aimed at him specifically.

I guess you could say that advertising campaign really .... a-noid ... him.

wait...i live like 3 blocks from there.
that place is/was fake?  i've only eaten there like once in my 47 years of existence.  worst. mistake. ever.

that drive-thru, tho...that tunnel ain't no joke.
those people will come flying out of there with onion rings hanging out of their mouf and ear glued to their cell phone and will run you over.

...and it's "southside".  not "south side".
/go ahead...fight me.

It's not that hard to run a better burger joint. Although if you're resorting to a retail grocer for supplies, you aren't the one to do it.

Try our Trump Burger.

It's a nothin' berder on steamed buns. Cheez Fud slice, 50 cents extra.

There is a non-chain Holiday Inn in Harrisburg PA. No idea how they won the suit against them by the real chain.

FTFA: As a general rule, if your boss ever announces he's now the Burger Warlord and upgrades you from fry cook to "raider," it's probably a good time to look for new job opportunities.

Oh, I don't know about that, it sounds kinda kickass! "I was just an everyday fry cook, but now I'm a raider for the Burger Warlord! Now hand over that lettuce!"

Been to Almaty, Kazakhstan a few times, there's quite a few legit Burger Kings and KFC's. Strangely, I have only seen one McDonald's there. Can't imagine eating in any of those places anyway, not here and definitely not there where there are just amazing local food options. Chances are pretty good that your burger would contain horsemeat anyway.

The only time I tried a burger there at all was at the little cafe' on top of Kok Tobe. It wasn't good. I would recommend sticking with shashlik, manty, doner, and lagman.

But you can still find good sushi.

Downtown Ottawa McDonald's will now close early after years of crime, complaints
Youtube Ap__4prHprk

I take this as enough of a pretext to post a story about a notorious Macdonald's in downtown Ottawa that had a fight, caught on camera, where a guy pulls out a raccoon.

See? Ottawa can be cool!
