At least he did not die of a brain attack (brain aneurysm), that would not be in line with the theme of the resturant.

Livin with cancer and all the drugs (Chemical/Radiation induced) sickness people like me live through day after day. A simple heart attack or stroke would be a god send...We're dead and it doesn't matter anymore one way or another.

Lets keep in mind that the restaurant didn't cause the heart attack. It was likely the other way around. The heart attack causing lifestyle drew the customer to the restaurant.

Put another way, blaming the restaurant would be like blaming Brokeback Mountain for making the people who watch that movie gay. More than likely, the audience members would already be LGBT and would be interested in that theme.

You are correct, a lot of people are acting like the restaurant made him fat. But he was heavy long before the place opened.

They may have contributed to the heart attack.(That is why doctors won't prescribe Viagra to some patients - arousal might kill them.)

That is what I meant by post 3. The person made himself fat and it was his lifestyle of overeating that drew him to the place. If there is a heart attack at the restaurant, it is likely not the mean eaten there which caused it.

'Heart Attack Grill' is a more catchy name than 'Give You Backfat Grill'.
