A Brief Guide to American Highway Fast Food

My friend and scotch-enthusiast, Ian Wiliams, has written a brief guide to American road-side fast-food for his fancy wife. Here are some highlights:

On Taco Bell:

“With a enough Medium™ sauce, pretty much everything remains vaguely interesting, even if the aftermath – especially in a closed car – can be somewhat Vesuvial.”

On Wendy’s (read the post for the footnote):

“[t]he quality control of this place has plummeted since owner Dave Thomas wriggled free of his mortal coil. Serves him right for shooting those kids at Kent State, huh?*”

On Subway:

“[i]t has always amazed me that Subway manages to make roast beef and lettuce taste exactly the same.”

On Burger King:

“[y]ou could stop at Burger King, but it better be an emergency.”

On Hardee’s:

“I have been starving, and not stopped at Hardee’s.”

It takes a special talent to make a Taco Bell / diarrhea joke actually funny. Extra points for using the term “Vesuvial”, which is even funnier when you read the definition.
