From The Bowels of Human Excess!
Hey guys –want to give your girlfriend a Thanksgiving she’ll never, ever forget?
Better book some tickets to the Big Apple, ‘cuz The Old Homestead Steakhouse in Manhattan is offering the holiday of a lifetime! The restaurant is serving up Wagyu beef from Japan, Foie gras, sourdough bread, cranberry-orange relish, creamy mashed potatoes, butternut squash, sweet potatoes and –of course– turkey, along with an emerald-cut engagement ring inside!
But wait –there’s more! You’ll get a dish of pumpkin ice cream for dessert, topped off with two tickets in the grandstand for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, a $5-thousand dollar Black Friday shopping spree at Bergdorf Goodman and two-night stay at the Waldorf Astoria complete with limo service.
All this can be yours for the low, low price of $45-thousand dollars.
A Woman Tried to Poison Her Husband But Failed Because She’s a Bad Speller
It’s nice to know all the horrible spelling you see these days could occasionally be used for GOOD.
55-year-old Jacqueline Patrick, from London was unhappily married to a 70-year-old guy named Douglas. So back in 2013, she tried to POISON him by putting ANTIFREEZE in his drink, on Christmas. Cold.
But there were two problems. First, she forged a note from him saying he didn’t want to be resuscitated. And she misspelled the word “dignity.” She wrote “dignerty.”
Second, her husband SURVIVED. When tests showed he had antifreeze poisoning, the cops suspected Jacqueline, and had her write “dignity” as a test. And she spelled it “dignerty” again.
She was arrested for attempted murder, and got sentenced to 15 years in prison on Monday.
Florida Restaurant Fires 13 Workers With Group Text Message
There are some things you just shouldn’t do via text.
Like….FIRE people. But that is just what Brad Barrett, the general manager of the Clermont, Florida restaurant “Lilly’s on the Lake” did!
Brad sent out a group text message to 13 employees that said, “Hello Everyone. As you know we are making some changes and moving in a new direction in the restaurant and because of that we have decided to move on without you. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and all of your hard work. Unfortunately we were unable to call and speak with each of you individually but we hope you all understand the decision we have made. Feel free to use us as a reference.”
The ex-employees are understandably upset.
