    They should try speeding up the service. The the immature customers have too much time to think of stupid things to do.

    All they had to do was throw the typically cold fries they have on it to extinguish it.

    Another slow news day. I hear a possum got ran over in Beulaville. There were no witnesses and the driver didn't stop. Police are on scene with a shovel clearing the scene.
