I’m willing to bet right now that come December 31, when we look back at the year 2014, besides all the bad shit that happened like Robin Williams’ suicide and passenger planes being shot down by Russia, we’ll be looking at the the past 12 months as “The Year of The Fatso.”
Think about it!
It’s been a great year to be a great big American fatso who loves nothing more than to pound endless amounts of food, at relatively very little cost.
I mean, this is the year in which we’ve seen TGIFridays launch their artery clogging $10 “Endless Appetizers” deal in July and Red Lobster is currently offering “Endless Shrimp” for $15.99.
Not to be outdone, Olive Garden-the chain that’s just one big middle finger to genuine Italian cuisine-is trying a new tactic for drawing in customers, as they’ve announced that they’ll be selling a “Never Ending Pasta Pass” for $100 that buys seven weeks of unlimited pasta, breadsticks, salad and Coca-Cola beverages, USA Today reports.
There are only 1,000 passes and they will be sold on the company’s website beginning at 3 p.m.
If a customer uses the pass once every day for the 49-day period, they would effectively be paying about $2 per meal.
Oh, and by the way, The Olive Garden’s pasta dishes average around 1,000 calories for a single serving.
Still, that’s not going to stop anyone.
These passes will likely sell out in a matter of minutes, because if there’s one thing that Americans love more than sub-par food, it’s MOUNTAINS of sub-par food for next to no cost.
