I'll have the ChooChooChili

Dear restaurant owner:

I would like to know one thing. Why, oh why do you insist on giving your entrees cute little names? Does your waitstaff get a kick out of seeing a grown woman order a Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity? Do you sit in the back room and snicker to yourself while a middle-aged man in a suit and tie stares at a waitress and asks for a Leapin' Leprauchan Burger?

I don't want a LocoChoco. I want a chocolate shake. I don't want a Yodel-Egg-Hoo. I want a swiss cheese omelette. Keep your We Be Clubbin' Sandwich and your Ole! Ole! appetizer. Just give me food. Normal named food.

I want to have a burger or a steak or nachos without having to sound like a infant to get it. Wipe that grin off your face! I am not going to come to your establisment any more if you insist on making me ask for dessert by ordering a LicketySplit.

The cute names for your meals and desserts and drinks reads like a kiddie menu. You may as well ask me to order the ChooChooChili or the LuckyLion or the YummyYak. We are adults. We want our food to be called things that sound like food, not crayon colors or circus animals.

And while I have your attention, please change the puzzle placemats once in a while. I found all those hidden words like two months ago, ok?

I've religiously avoided places like this. I always thought it was for a silly reason, as much as I like pancakes, I feel just too gay to ever order a "Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity." I'm glad I'm not the only one.
