The Real Reason Why I Moved To Los Angeles.


Cut in machines, right in front of me.

Your Potatoes, so fresh, so cut forth in front of my eyes. Doubting Thomases no more need to take up their habit in your kitchen.

Clever, so simple the designs.

Do you dream of days in the sun under the trees? The little details make for everything, especially under your drink cups, if stared at closely.

In case you reject corporate mass-marketing.

Warmth drawn into hearts, attempted in similar fashion to food into belly. We use our tools.

They do it for us.

If you didn't do it for me, I wouldn't go. No one likes to patron fast-food restaurants where the workers are there for themselves.

Je Mange . . . .

My joy. Precious hamburger, you melt into my mouth in greasy cheese and burger and bread and grease. Warm to the tongue, you slide on it through my inner neck-hole into my stomach-pouch. I bleat for your divine fresh meat, delectable and fresh potatoes, and your standard carbonated soda in non-standardly standard drink cup.

I am not worthy of salvation, but I am saved.

In case you forgot, a reminder.

Only since 1948 has In-N-Out served the patrons on the West Coast their quality fast food offerings.

One could order secret items . . . ones not listed on the menu. You can be satisfied, x5.

ah, but no pictures of the bible verse number things!

i appreciate being able to get a grilled cheese at in-n-out, because almost no other fast-food places have grilled cheese (i can think of one, but only one). veggie burgers occasionally, but i'm too afraid that they'll secretly give me meat.

"ah, but no pictures of the bible verse number things!"
yeah! i was looking for those in these pictures, too!

if i were to order a grilled cheese from in'n'out, i'd feel like i do when i order a burger at a mexican restaurant.

well, del taco/el pollo loco have french fries (i would have said taco bell too but i never go there so i don't know), so i think there must be a rule in california about it not being bad to mix food genres! or that it's somehow acceptable to be that disrespectful of food genres. either way, yum!

Yes, you know about the bible verse number secret!

The first time I noticed it, I was surprised that a company would allow something religious to be on the drink cup.

The drink cup I had a strange pattern of ribbing underneath, and the john bible verse was distorted.

Then again, it's not so strange to have something like that. Our currency, the US currency has in clear lettering, "In God We Trust" on probably all of the bills. No mention of Buddha or any other religion is made . . .

i think since it is "NOT A FRANCHISED COMPANY, PRIVATELY OWNED AND FAMILY OPERATED." they are allowed to put bible verse number things all over their packaging for everything. i always figured that even if someone were to get really offended about it at some point, it isn't like in-n-out have anything to worry about, because their food is so good no one would ever boycott it anyway. except vegans i guess. but then vegans would probably be too busy being mad at mcdonalds or kfc before they would have time to get mad at in-n-out. so it's a nearly perfect system for them.

and yeah, apparently "separation of church and state" as described by the forefathers of the united states didn't ever include the department of the treasury! it's interesting, since religion and money are such a volatile combination. even worse than, like, bleach and ammonia.

However, there is a price to pay for non-corporate ownership models.

From what I remember, corporate officers cannot be sued directly for disputes on the business.

The entity of the corporation is the target of lawsuits.

In a private ownership or a partnership, those folks can be given a lawsuit directly for business-related issues.

When this is important . . . if a transaction falls through with a distributor, or if the company serves up some sort of error on the consumers . . . . bad meat, or whatever, if it's not incorporated, the private owners can be handed court papers.
