Horseman of the Nutritional Apocalypse

I had no idea that this existed.

A patient of mine returned from a trip to Syracuse where she kept on getting asked the following question when she ordered meals in restaurants,

"Would you like that smothered?"
She didn't know what the waiters were talking about so she of course asked what "smothered" meant.

Apparently smothered means that for an additional dollar or so you can have your whole meal "smothered" in smokey bacon, fresh sauteed mushrooms & Monterey Jack cheese.

At Fresno's this privilege will cost your $1.19 extra.

And yet people go on and on about the "mystery" of why the world is gaining weight so quickly.

Any readers out there with smothering stories?
