I stopped by Johnnies today for lunch, having wanted a sammich for days, given all the recent chat on the subject of all things beefy. Prominently displayed at Johnnies, a sign: Help Wanted, 6 shifts a week.

And, I am also sad to report that perhaps a new beef nazi is needed. The product today really failed. The beef amounted to a bunch of stray trimmings, akin to what is sold as debris on at the famous Mother's in New Orleans. This caused the beef to amalgamate into a mass of soft, bovine flavored mushiness. On top of that, the portion was small. Oh, and the sausage was mostly singed.
