Eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

Didja know? In-N-Out Burger prints “Revelation 3:20″ on its hamburger wrappers.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Discovered this after seeking out an explanation for the appearance of “John 3:16″ printed on the bottom of bags from Forever 21. The New York Sun sought out shopper reactions!

“Jesus wore clothes,” a 22-year-old from Brooklyn, Jason Schultz, said when informed about the phrase on his bag.

    Yeah? Stalin wore clothes too.

    In addition to the burger wrappers the soda cups reference John 3:16, and the milkshake cup lists proverbs 3:5.

    I think, given the current ‘opposition’ climate and verbiage in the US, we should note that Hitler also wore clothes, including suits, and even buttoned them correctly.

    But could we call his style snappy, Coop?

    I wonder what verse would be cited by a place called In-N-Out Hot Dog? Comes with pillar of salt.

    In-N-Out Hot Dog is your next story title, Daryl. Featuring one of Uncle Tump’s nephews.

    Any of y’all remember Fernwood Tonight? I recall someone on that show speaking drolly about how his favorite restaurant, Bun-N-Run, had closed and been replaced by Taco-N-Run.

    Well, it was funny when I heard it.

    First line: “That’s not the big one, is it?”

    Man, I gotta take me some photographs inspired by the Wit and Wisdom of Uncle Tump.

    C’mon, Daryl! Sell out! Let’s collaborate and get us a lil’ ol’ stocking-stuffer book on the racks there by the check-out. Do it in time for the 2009 Holiday Season.

    “Wadja git?”

    “Case ammo, couple pouches snuff, that itty-bitty Uncle Tump book ever’body’s got. H’ard Wayne, though, he didden gimme nuthin.”

    Hell, I’d buy two.

    Bun-N-Run.

    The late, lamented Baker (California) Bun Boy (Bob’s Big Boy since 2006). Across the I-15 from The Mad Greek.

    Does Uncle Tump have a Twitter account?

  13. Cindy Scroggins on April 1st, 2009 at 3:17 pm

    Not since the stroke.

    He’s over at the Whip In now, buying butter and socks.
