    Hey! Drop the ketchup and back away from the French fries, lady! That's what you'd likely hear at a Florida restaurant where the chef has banned ketchup for customers over the age of 10.

    He doesn't even stock the stuff. Can you imagine?!

    Chef Xavier Duclos of Mad Fresh Bistro in Fort Myers just wants you to taste his food. He wants you to actually taste it.

    I think he's right. In fact, his ban doesn't go far enough. That nasty "red stuff" should be banned for all children, period.

    Well I never -- who does this?!? Witnesses say Britney Spears dined and dashed at Cheesecake Factory in Thousand Oaks, California. She ordered a salad and appetizer with her boyfriend, David Lucato, and then she waltzed on out with a doggie bag, leaving behind an unpaid $30 bill. Celebrity discount? How cheesy!

    But hold your judgy horses there, everyone. Britney's rep gave TMZ a perfectly good excuse, and it's one we can all relate to.

    Are we all familiar with the term "hangry"? It's when you're so hungry, you're angry. HANGRY. We all get hangry sometimes, and that's why someone created this t-shirt reading "I'm sorry for what I said when I was hungry." But hangry is not why 911 was created. And yet, hangry people keep calling the emergency hotline when their food disappoints them. Just the other day Bevalente Michette Hall called 911 over her Subway "Flatizza" flatbread pizza.

    And now! The answer! To the burning question that's been on all our minds! WHAT IS IN THE TACO BELL MEAT FILLING? Oh fine, maybe it's not such a burning question, and it actually hasn't been on my mind at all. But ever since an Alabama law firm claimed the seasoned beef filling at the fast food restaurant was composed of only 35 percent beef, the big bell has been scrambling to save its reputation. Behold, doubters: Taco Bell seasoned meat is 88 percent beef, the company stated this week. So away with your false aspersions of mystery meat!

    Wait -- 88 percent? What about the other 12 percent? There's still a mystery here. Well, haha, funny you should ask. Taco Bell has an explanation for that.

    If you're wearing of hearing about all the mean things people write on restaurant bills and the obnoxious behavior behind and in front of the counter, here's a sweet story that gives us hope. A customer left his bartender a $1000 tip -- because of a dog in need of surgery. And when you hear the whole story you may want to hug them both (and maybe the dog, too). It all started when the customer noticed a paw print tattoo on the bartender Christina Summit's arm.

    Four former college students who interned for Taco Bell's ad agency in the 1990s are pretty peeved these days. They claim the fast food chain restaurant didn't come up with the brilliant idea to fuse delicious Doritos with delicious taco shells -- they did. They say they entered a competition at the agency in 1995 and pitched the idea to create a taco shell made from Doritos chips. Their suggestions included naming it "Doritos Tacos" -- so much for originality -- charging 79 cents per taco, and hiring former Friends star Matthew Perry to star in advertisements. One intern even says the two flavors they pitched -- Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch -- were the exact flavors Taco Bell ended up using.

    Um, 17 years later, that is.

    It seems the world just wasn't ready for such explosive flavors back in the '90s. Taco Bell waited nearly two decades to introduce its Doritos awesomeness -- but that fact hasn't kept the interns from insisting they deserve some credit.

    You know that jerk who comes up short on the tip for the delivery guy? That jerk is me. I admit it, there have been times when I've had only enough cash to cover the bill, or I've suffered math amnesia and accidentally under-tipped. Well it's nice to know I'm not alone. One couple made up for their lousy tip with the sweetest note -- which, by the way, also included a $20 bill. Here's how they turned something so wrong into something so right.

    Have you ever gone inside a Starbucks and felt like something was missing? You know, the croissants are fine, the chocolate chip cookie soothes what ails you, and the caffeine is some of the strongest around, but something seems to be off...right? Well, even if you haven't felt this way, Starbucks was worried that one day you might. So they are completely overhauling their entire concept. Gone is the in-and-out coffee spot. In its place? A menu that includes wine, mac and cheese, and chocolate fondue! I will take seven of each, please and thank you. 

    They are calling these new nighttime options, 'Starbucks Evenings', and they've already begun a slow roll-out of these menu options at different locations throughout the country, though mostly on the West Coast. I've got to say, while I'm slightly skeptical, I love most of everything they do already. So why wouldn't I love this?

    I just want you all to know, I made a point of writing this post after lunchtime. And if you happen to be eating right now, I would strongly encourage you to put your fork down, swallow what's in your mouth, and grip the edge of your desk. Because: A woman found a lizard in her kale salad. But she didn't just find a lizard, as in a live lizard zipping in and out of the kale leaves. No, it's much worse than that. Robin Sandusky found just the head and an arm of the lizard.
