I wonder if Fuddruckers in Meridian is aware that it's Gunsmoke night on Saturday? The local gang from OpenCarry.org is planning a little "bring your handgun" shindig. Yo, Festus, order me some fries! Remember when these folks went to the Boise Zoo wearing their handguns last summer? Good times.
At least it isn't at Chuck E. Cheese's.
As entertaining as it all sounds, I'll probably steer clear of Fuddruckers. It's always difficult to slide into a restaurant booth while wearing a bulky bulletproof vest. Maybe the Fuddruckers waitresses can walk around swinging nunchuks or something.
UPDATED to add this video. Lighten up, people! It's an entertainment blog!
