“When guys come in and you know they’re just looking to get in fights, I go into the kitchen and get some onion rings and fries and give ’em to the guy. As soon as they bite into their second onion ring, they’re thinking of ways to go home. That grease puts ’em right to sleep.”

Food for thought, I suppose, as President Obama sits down for his beer with Officer Crowley and Professor Gates.
