Isn't Pete Wells' almost entirely interrogative review of Guy Fieri's Times Square restaurant the best kind of schadenfreude? "Did panic grip your soul as you stared into the whirling hypno wheel of the menu, where adjectives and nouns spin in a crazy vortex? When you saw the burger described as “Guy’s Pat LaFrieda custom blend, all-natural Creekstone Farm Black Angus beef patty, LTOP (lettuce, tomato, onion + pickle), SMC (super-melty-cheese) and a slathering of Donkey Sauce on garlic-buttered brioche,” did your mind touch the void for a minute?"

Is there a reason why going to restaurants with the names of famous TV personalities stapled onto the front of them is usually a bad idea? Is it bad for our metaphorical knees?

"How did nachos, one of the hardest dishes in the American canon to mess up, turn out so deeply unlovable? Why augment tortilla chips with fried lasagna noodles that taste like nothing except oil?"

Fried lasagna? Ew. Die in a fryer, Guy.
