That prank at a Bonanza steakhouse is a funny one, although their FOOD used to resemble a culinary PRANK.
All of the former Bonanza Steakhouses in Michigan now have changed to the Ponderosa label, except in the Upper Peninsula, where for some reason they retined the Bonanza moniker, even though they have the same parent company.

I honestly think the Ponderosa chain uses USDA Grade "D" beef, Cutter or Canner variety.

We had a "Bonanza" near here when I was a kid... We ate there maybe once or twice until I was out of high school that I can ever recall, they were pretty lousy... then sometime in the mid-90's IIRC they actually got pretty good and we ate there every few weeks or so, until they suddenly closed down. The building got bought out by a Chinese food joint, and they did okay for awhile until it seemed every time my old man ate there he got food poisoning (I'd quit eating there already by that point, but my old man's a slow learner-- we think it was the soup that always got him, cuz he was the only one that got sick, and he was the only one that ate the soup there, wonton and Tomaine is what I called it... LOL) It was called "Lucky Farm"... yeah, lucky if you don't get Tomaine...

We had a Golden Corral for awhile, but they went broke too after a few years... Chinese joint took over that place too... Bamboo Village... (Like the joke I often make when passing one of those places called "Lucky Village"-- (in Vietnamese "me love you long time" accent) "Ah, you in Lucky Virrage, it not get napalmed!!!")

About 6 years ago, suddenly we got a new Bonanza out on the freeway... one of those little bitty "Appleby's" looking restaurants, though, not the big old gambrel-roof looking "barn steakhouses" like the old one was... They were okay, but overpriced... went broke within about two years... it's some sort of seafood joint now, and they're overpriced too... haven't been there in years...

I've seen Ponderosa's, but haven't tried one... If I want a steak, I go to Montana Mike's... steak is usually ridiculously overpriced for what you get anyway... I simply don't eat at steakhouses because I get VERY PO'd paying $20 bucks plus for a little bitty overdone 6 ounce tough piece o-crap that wouldn't fill a hollow tooth... Montana Mike's at least has a 22 ounce steak for $18... usually it's a pretty good piece of meat, especially for the money... and with two sides and roll as well.

I don't usually spend over $25 bucks a plate on ANYTHING... If I want a GOOD steak, I'll hand-pick one in the meat counter and grill it up AT HOME... that's the only way to get REALLY good steak (unless maybe you like blowing $50 or more a person at some really FANCY steakhouse, but that ain't me...)

Later! OL JR

Last week I was at the MGM Grand Casino in Detroit and had the best steak of my life at Wolfgang Puck's.
10oz Filet Mignon, cooked Medium.
The price for the steak was downright stupid though. JUST THE STEAK was $39 with NO sides, all of those were 'ala carte'.
The bill for our party of 6 was just over $600.00 not including tip....
No big deal...I was there with a group of other poker pros....it was all paid for by profit from bad poker players that had been 'donating' to us....LOL.

Thanksgiving is coming up soon.
The UPPER-DEKKER gag is a perfect way to turn it into PRANKSgiving instead !
Don't forget the related pranks Top-Shelfer, Logg-Jamm, Dry-Dokker, and Volcano/Old Faithful as well !!!!!
In my book, NOBODY is immune to a good toilet prank.

I'm tawkin' STINKKKKKKKKK !

GH's posts always get me to stinkin', I mean thinkin'.

I had to go see my urologist yesterday, 43 miles from my house at 70 mph through numerous construction zones with tailgating A-holes coming and going. Scheduled for 3:00 p.m., arrive at 2:00, fill out papers and don't actually see the doctor until quarter to 4:00. Get out at 4:30 and discover a totally flat tire on the truck. By now I'm thoroughly constipated and pissed off beyond repair. Change the tire, air it up ($1.00, thanks you SOB's), pick up a pizza and get home at 6:30. Did I mention I was constipated?

So this morning I get message from what's left of my nervous system that I have a package ready for shipment. And what a package it was! Not record status but for me, a dandy. And that got me thinkin', again.

What if I were to transplant one of my finer discharges to the cat's litter box? After all, I have to clean her stinkin' Tootsie Rolls out of her box at least once a day so why not give her a nice surprise...in the Holiday Spirit?

I ran it by the entertainment director but she rejected it. Maybe on Christmas?

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!
