weak at best. you have one week to rinse, shampoo, rinse and repeat.
Out here we used to have a Drive Through labelled:
Arigato's Sushi, Sauerkraut, Pastrami, and Squid Burgers
Conjures some pretty trefty Klingon fare, eh?
Question is...When are you coming back to Chapel Hill and eat at Squids? :-)
A party of four in black suits and sunglasses enters the restaurant.
Maitre D': Welcome to Squid's... hey, what the hell? Why are you pulling guns on me?
Leader: We need to see the owner. Now!
Maitre D': Um, we're owned by a corporation, Chapel Hill Restaurant Group.
Leader: Yup, as we thought. Not owned by a squid.
Maitre D': Look, we serve calamari, Cajun squid rings, that's why the name, and it's cute... [click] You handcuffed me!
Leader: I'm afraid we have to book you as a material witness. Aggravated abuse of the possessive.
Maitre D': That's not against the law! I know! This is my day job while I'm writing a novel. I have a master's in English!
Leader: It has been ever since a panda shot up a restaurant in Charlotte and left a copy of "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" as a calling card.
Maitre D': Oh, crap. You're the punctuation police.
The leader smiles thinly.

Don't know if she coined it but she has an acronym new on me...

Squid's is great. Try the oyster shooters.
Trying to figure out what event you could have relocated to Chapel Hill. Next retreat for BT's security unit?
@Bob - ROFL about the "Punctuation Police" skit!
