隨即的事情: Wendys is not, as advertised, "Way Better Than Fast Food"

*It's sad for us to have write this, but it's true.

We went to Wendys to break the fast (goyam, read this), and were thoroughly, thoroughly dissapointed. Not only did Wendy's nix the dollar menu (relabeling it a "value" menu - Rule 12 f was not fooled!) but their regular "combo" meals are now hella expensive. To give you an idea, my double cheeseburger value meal was almost $6.50 with tax. That's for a *small* fries and a *small* soda. Outrageous. Just because the economy is awful, doesn't

We call shennanigans. That's way more expensive - by a dollar or even more - than the combo prices at McDonalds, and McDonalds still has a legit dollar menu.

The worst part was that it wasn't even that good - the fries were floppy and not warm, and there was no way I could get catchup to go. The soda was flat, and the burger was decidedly inferior to the $60 steak I had in midtown yesterday. FAIL. Srsly though, the burger was the best part, but it still fell far short of the Chick-Fil-A sandwhich we had last week (yes you can compare them, don't start), and the BigMac eclipses it by every quality, including the price.

The worst part? It didn't even fill us up. We had to take make some hot dogs afterwards. The first sin of the new year was putting overpriced Wendys in our body. Food for thought as we waddle around Charlottesville, weighed down by 1200 k/cal of third tier fast food.

* Are UVA Law students exteremely good looking overall? Perhaps. One thing is certain - the 60/40 gender ratio makes it tough to find a date to PILA auction. Being financially insolvent doesn't help either. Anyway, all the cute girls are either not single, or, at the very least, the type that get creeped out being asked on a date in the fishbowl. Life is tough.

As a bleeding democrat, in all fairness it must be pointed out that the number scale for SATs was significantly lower back in the day.
