running a restaurant has always seemed like a fun idea to us. picking the menu, the layout of the tables, and being able to bring people together looked like a blast until we watched a cooking show. i'm watching you like a f**king whore. i know you are, chef. do you know why? i don't know, chef.
i want you out! you, you, you, you. f**k off out of here! f**k me. f**k me? how about f**k you! what are you?! an idiot sandwich. okay so even though that looked way harder than we expected we still all felt like a yes theory restaurant had to exist for at least a night and then we saw this video
