Exposing Absurdity with Absurdity

Triggered by the class action lawsuit filed against McDonald's for allegedly making people fat, a restaurant in Seattle decides to require its patrons to sign a waiver before it will serve them dessert.

After a diner signs it, a waiter hauls out a sugarcoated, deep-fried, ice cream-swaddled, caramel-drizzled, whipped-cream- anointed banana.

"We thought, what can we do to illustrate how stupid it is to make restaurants responsible for monitoring the eating habits of Americans?" 5 Spot co-owner Peter Levy said. "We came up with the most fattening and delicious dessert we could think of."
