If PEDA Was a Religion
This Would be the Church
Yahoo had a story about a restaurant in Arizona that proudly admits to trying to finish off its customers has introduced a new item on its menu It's called the "quadruple bypass burger".
The burger at the "Heart Attack Grill" restaurant is stacked with four beef patties, cheese, onions, tomatoes and fried bacon, and weighs in at only 8,000 calories, more than three times what the human body needs in one day. Customers who have no appetite for the "quadruple bypass burger" can opt for the "triple" or "double-bypass".
If one has room for more one can also order French fries "fried in pure lard" and they can also purchase cigarettes off the menu. As a courtesy, the restaurant offers its "best customers" a wheelchair service to their cars by waitresses dressed in slinky nurses' outfits.The idea, however, has not gone down well with the Arizona State Board of Nursing which has expressed concern that some patrons may confuse the waitresses with real nurses.
To avoid any confusion, Heart Attack Grill owner, John Basso has posted a long message on his restaurant website saying that his employees in no way are medical professionals.
Basso also said that his ultimate goal is to open a restaurant in France.
All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hope that anyone going to this place has their affairs in order. The only problem PEDA has with the place is that the burgers have too many vegetables on them.
Ilah Hansen Ready for Homecoming
Joan Hansen reported that her mother-in-law, Ilah Hansen is not expected to live through the day. She is not interested in food. When she was offered broccoli soup for supper she wrinkled up her nose and said,"I'd rather have a good hamburger!" Ilah is in Hospice Care with a condition known as severe pulmonary hypertension, which means that the right side of her heart can't keep up pumping the blood into the left side. Her heart is just getting weaker and weaker. It's only a matter of time until she leaves this world for her Heavenly home.
Our Publisher knows what it is like to have a family member in this kind of shape. His own Grandma Bergit had a condition somewhat like this until she died 12 years ago this December. Because of this, all of us here at the Holabird Advocate send our thoughts and prayers to Ilah and her family at this time.
Updates and Corrections
blame it on our small town ways or whatever, but we just had to find out who at First Baptist Church of Sioux Falls has become a Reader. We have discovered that our Reader is Scott Aseltine. A real nice guy, who happens to be the church administrator. He is proud of the church and from what we've seen, his pride is well placed. Take a look at their website and see. The address for the church is www.firstbaptistsf.org.
Another member the church is Jason Folkerts. He is a cartoonist who does brilliant work. We'd put him up there with other great South Dakota artists like Terry Redlin or Jim Zilverberg. He does editorials, and from the look of things, our Publisher probably wishes he had discovered Jason during his Janklow Period, if indeed he had one. The best part is, he doesn't play favorites. Whether Democrat or Republican, no statesman escapes his scrutiny. You can get a daily dose of the artist and his brilliance at http://www.jasonfolkerts.blogspot.com/
