The man just decided to go all Rambo on Al Qaeda? The lines that seperate one from being retarded, crazy, and a badass mofo are a bit blurred on this story. My pick is retarded.

Re: The Market!

We have a couple of Melting Pots in the St. Louis area. I've been there a couple times, and liked them a lot. Such places are more fun with a group of people, I think.

Re: The Market!

I'm in Savannah and what do I run across? A fondue restaurant called "The Melting Pot". I've never had fondue(WTF is fondue?) but the girlfriend wanted to try. Apparently, fondue is totally the market and I was a lesser person for not having experienced it.
