Thanks again to Andy Cruz for this gem.  Just think: if this had never happened, The Cheesecake Factory, Red Robin, and Chili’s and Red Robin would go out of business.


‘lilCaesar (Caesar): Had a refreshing bowl of lettuce today, still thinking about what to call it

Thanks to Andy Cruz for sending this one in:

Tommy2Tone (Tommy Tutone): @Jenny Hey lost your phone number, please resend.

Don’t get this one?  You either a) hate 80’s music or b) were born after 1997, and have therefore never heard of a rotary phone.  Check out: 867-5309.
