There's a big, fat hoax doing the rounds about the Golden Corral restaurant chain being sued for 2 million dollars by a 'Mr. Flemming' or 'Mr. Flemmings' (the story contains both spellings) because he was thrown out of a restaurant by the employees after eating between 50 and 70 pounds of food from the all-you-can-eat buffet. The angry patron ("51 years old, on welfare") claimed the "all-you-can-eat" sign was false advertising.
The unhappy customer was quoted to have said:
It's a serious injustice, and I am deeply insulted! With my income, I rarely go to the restaurant, so I try to get as much as I can for my money when I do. This was the worst experience I have ever had in a restaurant. Not only did they kick me out while I was still hungry, but they looked at me like I was disgusting, like I was not worthy of eating there! It's unacceptable, and I demand a compensation!
Of course the story is a prime example of an all-you-can-lie hoax article, from well-known fake news website World News Daily Report, which states in its disclaimer you shouldn't believe anything they write:
Information contained in this World News Daily Report website is for information and entertainment purposes only.
The photo they use to illustrate the story is not of 'Mr. Flemming' or 'Mr. Flemmings' but of 'James', aged 38 from Frankston, Texas, a contestant in TLC's show 'My 600-lb Life' about extremely obese people.
