The nerve of that fat broad even thinking of taking a parking space when a male wanted it.

The dame needs extensive training within the precepts of the Females as Property Movement. There is even a definite possibility the daffy dame needs to be muzzled when in public areas.

Then there was the broad behaving as a child (typical for females of all ages) whose childish behavior led to the flinging of tomato juice upon bystanders.

Typical self-centered emotion-laden female behavior of the type that led to the need to create the Females as Property Movement.

Note there is no mention of that ignorant broad offering to pay for the damage she caused to other's clothing.

Imagine if it had been a male who had sent the juice flying onto a female's clothing!!! The outrage from the female would have been immense, even likely leading to the dame calling the police and pressing charges.

Ignorant idiotic out-of-control females, self-centered with a Devil-may-care attitude towards others as the females wander through live at a child-like mental level yet demanding all adult rights and privileges while ignoring the concurrent responsibilities required of true adults.

The solution to this society-wide problem is enacting the Females as Property Movement country- and society-wide.

The brazen broads have given us no alternative.

Just as we restrain children and rabid dogs we must curtail females for their own good and the good of society and country.

The trib is finished. What a pointless article. I understand you can't choose your stories but you can choose your employer. Show some dignity son and resign now.

If not some time in summer I will be looking forward to a story regaling us with the details of you sifting through your feces for corn after a visit to a you pick your own farm.

Get a sense of humor guy. It was funny and well written. The restaurant was open to anybody who wanted a free meal. Denny's did a nice deed.

What a waste of food, ordering 5 free breakfasts but not eating everything. Perhaps someone more deserving could have taken advantage of the 4 you didn't need?

I think it's funny that some people think that others didn't get their grand slam because of you. If they showed up they were fed. One more or one less made no difference to Dennys. The other thing is people bashing Dennys. A free bad meal is better than no meal at all and generally Dennys has decent meals for the money. The funniest post was the note that what goes in ,must come out. Stay close to the bathroom.

This...is not a good article. Nevermind your sickening gluttony and selfish attitude, I would have forgiven that if the article were at least somewhat amusing. I've read articles in The Onion and The Weekly World News that were more engaging and interesting than this piece of tripe.

If it were the same people insulting him over and over then they would be indulging in the same regrettable excess as the author. But from what I can tell it's been a long succession of unique individuals politely taking a single turn to generously share their own little "slam" with him. Seems in keeping with the spirit of the event don't you think?

What's sad is a Grand Slam cost under 10 dollars and these morons are running around town like they won the lottery. I would laugh at anyone who was so desperate they had to get a free Denny's breakfast but this is America land of the fatties.

Excellent point.

When in California in an area where a large percentage of the huddled masses were illegal aliens, I saw that crowd regularly use their phony IDs to obtain free medical care from hospital emergency rooms.

Required by law to treat any who enters, good luck trying to track down those offering fake ID with untraceable information to get payment from them.

A sniffle? To the doctor. Itty bitty splinter? To the doctor. Let the muy estupido Gringos pay for it!!!!!

What really angered me was when illegal aliens used the ambulance to get to the hospital's emergency room.

Kid has a sniffle? Something I NEVER went to a doctor for as a kid... call the ambulance!!!

A yearly tradition where the illegals dwell is to toss out the old fake ID and replace it with a new set. A thriving industry exists where illegals congregate.

Competition has brought down a set of the finest fake ID to around $50 to $200, depending upon time and place.

Well, it only costs you and me mega-billions of dollars yearly so its a small price to pay to make working-poor citizens compete for jobs and housing with illegal aliens.

You missed the point entirely. Sure, Denny's has plenty of food. That doesn't make it alright to waste 4 meals for ANY reason. Your thinking is typical of spoiled US we have so much we can just throw it away, oink, oink. When you stop laughing at this article you ignoranus, why don't you try talking to anyone who lived through the Great Depression or who is standing in line at a food bank now because they've lost a job and have hungry mouths to feed at home. They'll tell you just how funny it is.
