Never underestimate the pen. The pen can be a seriously dangerous weapon and not just to write bad things about you.

FTA: "found the victim with a stab wound to their neck, mere inches from a carotid artery."

Necks aren't that big.  Any stab wound to the neck is inches from the carotid artery.

Don't care for five guys. First time I went to one, a fat Texan guy with greasy, swollen legs that were criss-crossed with blue & purple veins was chowing down. Mouth open chewing food & loudly talking with a wet beard.

It was so nauseating that I couldn't enjoy  the food.

I tried it one more time since at a different location, and while not bad, that horror is always stuck in my mind that ruins the place even when I drive by one.

Speaking from experience, if you're at work and want a burger, search for "Five Guys", not "5 Guys."

I stopped going to Five Guys when the local stores started skimping on fries.  Back in the day, they used to fill the cup (Mooby's reference intended) then dump another scoop in the bag.  That's been the deal forever.  A few years ago, the stores near me stopped adding that extra scoop.  For a $16 counter service meal, that's pretty stingy.

This either is or is not a repeat from several years ago.

I had a 5 guys cook threaten me because I asked for the milkshake in a larger cup so it wouldn't spill.  I think he liked her...

Altoona again.

If the victim had died...the good news would be that he didn't have to live in Altoona anymore.

You know what would be terrible?  If you started thinking about that guy at every retstaurant.  Every time you try to eat.  Every meal, every time.  That would be terrible.

farkin-A man, that's been my experience too about the fries. Used to have that farking cup filled with fries, but used to dump a massive amount more in the bag.  Now, a few times I've only got the bullshiat cup with fries and nothing more. Other times I got more fries dumped in the bag, but nowhere near as much as before. fark that bullshiat.  Initially I passed this off as just a mistake, but after a few times it's obvious that's it's not. fark that shiat.

/ya mon, I'm farking fat.  And gonna be fat somewhere other than Five Guys.  Steak-n-Shake it is, baby!

It seems to depend on the store/employee/order size/time of day/humidity etc. As of a few months ago they still did it at the random location I visited after picking up my wife from the airport but there have been times when others didn't. Makes picking the fry size kind of difficult when you're thinking in relation to how many people are with you and how much of a fat kid you want to be on a given day.

/sometimes I actually don't want all the extra fries

I've not been in a while, but any time I went with someone who's never been, I made sure they knew to only get a small fry. And just one for the table. That's all you needed.
I hope they aren't skimping like that everywhere.

Thosw: "Derek, you're only putting 4 pounds of fries in the bag. You know it's gotta be at least 7. Slacker."


I took a couple of friends to Five Guys for the very first time.  I ordered three bacon cheese burgers, all the way, three medium drinks, and one small order of fries.  My friends insisted we get two large orders, at least.  I reassured them we would have plenty.

There were leftover fries.

Necks aren't that big.  Any stab wound to the neck is inches from the carotid artery.


Did you never watch Star Trek the Necks Generation?

Both of my parents were born and raised in Altoona but left when they got married.  So all I know about Altoona are their stories from the 1930s-1950s ... and Fark articles.
