    US man shoots at restaurant after he was refused curly fries

    A man pulled out a gun and shot at the drive-through window of a fast food restaurant because the manager wouldn't give him curly fries.

    The man was in the back seat of a car that pulled up to the window of the Jack In The Box restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina.

    Police spokesman Michael Hildebrand told Greenville Online that the man wanted to change the regular fries he'd been given to curly fries.

    The manager told investigators he agreed to replace the fries until he saw the suspect eating them.

    When the manager told him he wouldn't replace the fries, the man pulled out a revolver, Mr Hildebrand said.

    The manager told investigators that the suspect fired at the window once, leaving a dent in the metal part of the window, then drove off. No one was injured.



    Good thing he was using a pea-shooter.

    You just can't go around denying people curly fries! This is America, damn you!
  10. The Apocalypse has been on us for a while...this is one sloooooooooow Apocalypse...

    I get the feeling that Mr. Apocalypse is locked in the boys bathroom with the fly of his pants stuck while his cues being said...and I think the director's getting nervous.

    If the guy sold his gun instead of waving it around like a maniac, think about how many orders of friggin' curly fries he could buy then...I think it might blow his puny, potato-obsessed mind.

    What a jackass.:oops:

    As Bliss said, the Curly fries aren't even that good.
    Get yourself some Moe, or better yet, some Larry Fine fries and you'll be livin' large. :D

    Yeah, but I bet you've never opened fire on a drive-thru that wouldn't exchange your half-eaten German potato salad for regular ol' potato salad...

    There are definitely two distinct varieties of the tuber-obsessed: Those whose food preparation preferences lead to gun violence and those who just happen to like potatoes a whole lot.:D
