Fried Failure

When the story broke, Bwog Taste Testers were on the scene within minutes. James Downie, Sam Schube, and Brian Donahoe report that yes, it is true. M2M’s legendary cheap-and-tasty, best-in-the-neighborhood fries have been replaced by impostors.

Gone are the perfect little golden-brown packages of tempura-like flavor, and oh how we will miss their texture and adequate salt. Downie reports limp, unevenly heated specimen, desperately in need of flavor and form. Donahoe goes as far as to say “pale and flaccid.” Schube: “THEY SUCK”

    @WHAT? PROTEST OUTSIDE M2M. LET’S BEGIN AT 5PM AND BRING SIGNS AND CHANTS LIKE “FIGHT 2 MIDNIGHT”

    Please note: Anti-protest, defending M2M’s right to choose will begin approximately at 6PM

  • REJOICE says:

    @REJOICE THE FRIES ARE NOT PERMANENT. I REPEAT-NOT PERMANENT. I spoke with the cooks, they should be back to their delicious tempura-goodness by tomorrow.
    They did, however, try to convince me these new ones were better because they were more expensive. I quickly showed them the error of their ways.
