Current mood:hungry

If you ever get the urge to supersize your combo meal at the drive-through,

you best not do it with a supersize BAC.  The crew person at the window may not be the same emo teen that was there last week...

That's some nice work there boys.  Ooh, do you have any hot apple pies left?

"Drunken drivers with the late-night munchies soon could get more than just a burger and fries at the drive-through window."
"The Pima County Sheriff's Department's new anti-drunken driving campaign — called Operation Would U Like Fries, or Operation WULF — hopes to put undercover deputies inside 24-hour fast-food restaurants to spot impaired drivers placing their orders, said Sgt. Doug Hanna, DUI unit supervisor.
If deputies notice someone with any of the classic symptoms of impairment — slurred speech, red or watery eyes, beer breath — they will radio a uniformed deputy stationed just outside, Hanna said.
The second deputy will then pull over the driver and, if field tests confirm what the officer at the drive-through suspected, arrest him or her for driving under the influence

Oh sure, there are civil rights arguments against the practice.  Who wants to admit entrapment-by-milkshake?

I'm more worried about the cultural effects.  It just doesn't sound right if our TV shows turn into Miami Thickburger or CSI:IHOP!

Huh. Not what I was expecting it to be about.

I'm amazed that did not occur to me at all.  Even two-letter combos like "LF" are in the Devil's Dictionary.  Gosh... is there no innocence left??
