Just what Pittsfield needs, more fat and unhealthy people.

A bacon cheeseburg and order of fries at this slophouse is 1540 calories, about what most people need for an entire day and includes 36 grams of saturated fat.

BMC must be excited about this place, they will need to go hire a few more heart surgeons.

Lots more Viagra needed too, as various arteries clog up.

Hope it flops, let the slobs go somewhere else for trash food.

Yes - I don't blame you - if I lived in NA, I wouldn't be bothered by it either.

Hey, Joe I have an idea for you. Why don't you invest $300,000 of your money in a shoots and tofu shop. In your world, that's what everyone is scrambling for, right? You'll be a millionaire in no time!

Why is it considered a good thing to point out the health effects of poor eating choices but it's considered an evil and hateful thing if you point out the unhealthy side effects of homosexual sex?

Two groups practicing poor health habits should be treated exactly the same.

Unfortunately my tax money is used to subsidize fatso's health bills - I am already investing -
the only upside for me is that places like five guys kill their customers relatively quickly so at least my pension fund will last - keep eating beef dude.

I agree - Heterosexual sex has the same unhealthy side effect if not practiced safely - I think you are advocating safe sex for everyone? me too!

why would five guys want to eat one burger? This whole things is nuts. Each one should pay for and eat his or her own burger for gods sake already. Stop the insanity

Why? Because the take it in the seat club has an in your face mentality that tries to shame anyone who isn't pro homo and they also have their limp wristed supporters like praxis the a hole.
Fortunately Southern Baptist don't have "an in your face mentality" and they don't try to shame anyone - the religious right is know for thier tolerance - right?

Those clowns have done more to hurt real conservatives and libertarians than any "in the seat club" could dream of doing.

The sooner we get religious and social preferences out of the conservative agenda the sooner we can get back to fiscal policy conservatism - real conservatism.

Well Pops, I sure do hope I don't end up on a grill this winter, though I do love waterfalls, I don't believe being dressed out there is what I had in mind either.

There's a reason for the expression "never turn your back on a Greek."
