(Newser) – Guy Fieri decided to go with the simple "guysamerican.com" for his restaurant, Guy's American Kitchen and Bar. But he really should have also registered the longer version, too, Fast Company reports. Instead, Bryan Mytko snapped up GuysAmericanKitchenAndBar.com and posted a hilarious fake menu there that's gone viral. Sample items:

  • Honky-Tonky Double Barrel Meat Loaded Blast: "A Sammy Hagar lookalike pushes your face into a leather bag filled with oil."
  • Reno!!!: "Popcorn crusted popcorn chicken stuffed inside Guy's Nuthin' Fancy Meatloaf." (To this one, you can "Add a Cinnabon and two more Cinnabons" for just $4.95.)
  • Superbowl Bash Bro'det: This one involves a lot of Velveeta and is served in a bidet that's actually "an MP3 player that plays Smash Mouth while you eat."

Sadly, the menu is tinged with scandal: Someone claiming to be a friend of Mytko's tells Gawker Mytko didn't credit Pauline Vassiliadis with the menu's design. And, making matters worse, a few people also pointed out on Twitter that Mytko seems to have stolen many of the jokes from other Twitter users (comparisons here and here). (Mytko, for his part, says he "had no idea the stuff was theirs.") Despite the controversy, we say the menu is still worth reading: It's almost as funny as last year's scathing New York Times review of the restaurant.

After working for 25 years for somebody else I decided it was time for a change, trading was the answer for me because I need to work from home. I say stop working for somebody else and make your own money .Check out the website Traders Superstore, just Google them you should be able to find them, these guys are really doing it right and make you wonder why everybody isn't like them.
