Open letter to Denny's

At 82 I ask myself, what's the crux of it all, what's life all about

Creator of a dozen inventions that never got built, author of a book that nobody wanted to read

No, this morning Jan 7 it became indubitably apparent that the ultimate experience, aside from the first thing that comes to a man's mind, is breakfast at Denny's, a dish of Red-Velvet donut holes and ice cream with a dash of whipped cream

The only possible improvement, it might best be accompanied by three strips of bacon

@dalehileman,
Is that the place that advertises on TV all you can eat pancakes? Who needs that many pancakes?

@jcboy,
from the great Bill Hicks

You know I've noticed a certain anti-intellectualism going around this country ever since around 1980, coincidentally enough. I was in Nashville, Tennessee last weekend and after the show I went to a waffle house and I'm sitting there and I'm eating and reading a book. I don't know anybody, I'm alone, I'm eating and I'm reading a book. This waitress comes over to me (mocks chewing gum) 'what you readin' for?'...wow, I've never been asked that; not 'What am I reading', 'What am I reading for?' Well, goddamnit, you stumped me...I guess I read for a lot of reasons — the main one is so I don't end up being a fuckin' waffle waitress. Yeah, that would be pretty high on the list. Then this trucker in the booth next to me gets up, stands over me and says [mocks Southern drawl] 'Well, looks like we got ourselves a readah'...aahh, what the ****'s goin' on? It's like I walked into a Klan rally in a Boy George costume or something. Am I stepping out of some intellectual closet here? I read, there I said it. I feel better.

Interesting Dj that you should so inquire. Coincidentally Denny's has been so accused

I'd have boycotted them but my Better Half still likes to breakfast there

Besides those donut holes go so well with the ice cream
