    Make your stories gross and funny.

    Mine is, unquestionably, Burger King. The last time I was there - the last time I will ever go - was eight, nine years ago. I ordered a $3.00 double cheeseburger with two undercooked strips of the devil's salt they call bacon at that pigsty, two sprinkles of ketchup, and enough mayo (yeah, I fuckin asked for it) to fill one of those air bladders your kid cut out of his old Air Jordans.

    So they flame broil these turds, which is code for they're caked in grease sweat when they come off the grill. So much, it turns out, the bottom half of the bun soaks through with whatever charcoal flavored Kool-Aid they spritz on the thing. I took one bite, and, it removed every bad taste I've ever had and set them one place down on the list. It's still at the top, and I've eaten some of that candy people you know bring back from Europe.

    Senior year of high school, on my way to an AP Calc study group. Ordered a couple of cheeseburgers from McD's. Paid with quarters. Got food poisoning. Missed three days of school, including the AP test. Fuck McDonald's.

    Taco Bell. I worked there in HS.

    I'll tell all the stories once the statute of limitations has expired.

    Had a McDonald's milkshake one night when I was out with some friends. Got home, went to bed, woke up a few hours later and had some of the nastiest food poisoning type crap coming out from every orafice in my body. Part of it was a stomach virus that was going around a camp I had been helping out at, but to this day I can't have one of their crappy pre-mixed sludgeshakes ever again.

    Last KFC I went in, manager had his office in that little sun-domey area of the restaraunt.

    I don't go there. I like chicken OK, but I make it fine baked, and every time I drive by the specials on the ugly board are approximately the price of a mortgage payment.

    Burger King. I worked there for three years in college. There's only so long a girl can go smelling of that much animal fat. Also, the buns are soggy not solely from the grease, but from the water in the chafing dish used to keep them warm.

    I may need to go throw up now.

    Whataburger and Southern humidity = two great entities

    Worst fast food BY FAR I've ever had = Schlotzky's

    I don't live in the south, but after being in the desert for about seven months, I took a trip to Florida. Granted it was March and still in the 70s, but the humidity literally made me happy. It was just nice to feel something besides searing heat. I'm from and am currently in the Northeast. It can be humid as balls here in the summer. For some reason I missed it and still appreciate it.

    As for Whataburger, I tried. The burgers were meh and the fries were soggy. I subsisted on Taco Bell, Subway and Ramen, until the one time I somehow forgot to put water in the bowl and nearly started my microwave on fire. (And no, I don't wonder why I don't have a girlfriend.)

    a) I don't consider Schlotzsky's fast food.

    2) WTF planet do some of y'all live on? ::) Damn, I miss me some turkey and bacon clubs on sourdough from Schlotzsky's.
