2012-11-04. Curious news

Two men have been barred from an all-you-can-eat Mongolian restaurant, Gobi, located in Brighton, because they ate too much. George Dalmon and Andy Miles, who visited the place twice a month for two years, feel ashamed and humiliated because, without any explanation "As we were eating the last bowl, the owner came up and said never to come back again, we're disgusting, and we're eating him out of business, so we're nothing but filthy pigs”. Peter Westgate, the co-owner, said that it wasn’t only for the amount of food but because they smashed everything in their path. "They muck up the buffet for everyone. They push and shuffle people from the barbecue area and it's pretty sad really. Because you can eat all you like over five-and-a-half hours - it's not an issue, you do not need to rush”. Despite of these words, the two affected, both 26, believe that "we've paid the £12 for the buffet and it says you can have as much as you like, but apparently five bowls was over the top as far as he was concerned". This business could be considered at risk, especially in times of crisis. 

We are tired of so much tradition. Now the novelty is fashionable. It is no cool anymore to eat mommy’s food: instead of that chefs have to introduce new elements to attract customer’s attention. One of these products is liquid nitrogen. Best chefs in the world use it in their restaurants. But is it safe? Experts agree that it is, but always that you serve it with caution. In a bar in Lancaster, UK, the 18-year-old Gaby Scanlon, lost her stomach in the celebration of her 18th birthday. Apparently the cocktail that she took, a "Martini Pornstar", caused a perforation of her stomach and she had to be rushed to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. Now the girl is stable and she even tweeted: "Maybe stay off the liquid nitrogen 'is not f ------ funny thing to say to me." You know, if you go to a bar and someone offers you an "innovative" cocktail, you better distrust.

The Simpsons was the first animated sitcom which aired in prime time. Thousands and thousands of families around the world have enjoyed, over 508 episodes, of the craziness of this family. Although in the beginning it was believed to be a children's show, the truth is that its satires and comments make it enjoyed by adults. The Simpsons was created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company in 1989, apparently as an image and likeness to his family. The names are real except his, Matt, who was replaced by Bart. However, the Danish web 22words found in its archives an Oscar Jacobsson’s comic whose protagonist looks like Homer. Adamson, as he called the Swede, is clumsy, lazy and smoker. These cartoons began to be published in the 20s and became famous in China, Japan and the United States. Matt Groening created this inspiration from his family or was there something else?
