  • You just knew this would happen . . . .

    The president of Applebee’s International, Inc. announced Tuesday that the family restaurant chain would be declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy next week, after offering military service members and veterans free alcohol for Veterans Day.

    The promotion resulted in a massive single day loss of nearly $6 billion.

    “I just wanted to do something for the troops,” said Michael Archer, Applebee’s president, in a press conference. “I figured they would come in, be respectful, and have a drink or two. It’s not like people go to Applebee’s to drink.” . . . .

    “Three guys came in and sat down at the bar,” said Michelle Baxter, a bartender at an Applebee’s in Butte, Montana. “They ordered three kegs and finished them in half an hour. One of them died for a moment. Actually died. He fell to the floor and wasn’t breathing. The two others did CPR on him while shouting ‘Wake up pussy, there‘s beer left!’” . . . .

    Good joke there! Believable too...

      Not sure who would panic about Applebees in any way whatsoever. If they all burned to the ground at exactly the same time it would cause a minor ripple in the social consciousness, no panic.

          Any location near military bases suffered a similar fate. Security footage of a Jacksonville, North Carolina Applebee’s showed hundreds of Marines drinking, head-butting walls, and holding one-armed pushup contests. Marines later spray painted “USMC” and “Wagner loves cock” over the walls

          This appears to accurately describe your average weekend in Jacksonville, however. Did six years in the Corps. Never met Wagner. But from what I've read on countless walls, he loves cock.
